SEAA 2020: Accepted paper

Congratulations to our colleagues for their accepted article at the conference SEA2020:

  • Kevin Feichtinger, Rick Rabiser: "Variability Model Transformations: Towards Unifying Variability Modeling" bei der Konferenz

They describe their vision of an approach that can transform between variability models of different types.

ICPS 2020: two accepted publications

Congratulations to our employees for their first accepted articles:

  • Bianca Wiesmayr, Lisa Sonnleithner, Alois Zoitl: Structuring Distributed Control Applications for Adaptability
  • Muddasir Shakil, Alois Zoitl: OPC UA-based IEC 61499 device configuration interface

Due to the current situation, the conference will be held online.

March 2020: Inaugural lecture of Professor Rabiser

On March 2, 2020, Prof. Dr. Rick Rabiser gave his inaugural lecture "Software Engineering in Cyber-Physical Systems: Mastering Variability and Evolution". About 100 people from industry and academia participated.


February 2020: The team grows

DI Kevin Feichtinger began in early February 2020 as a University Assistant at LIT | CPS Lab. His research is focused on variability modeling. Also, Dario Romano joined as student assistant working on supporting different topics including variability modeling and requirements monitoring.


November 2019: Professor Rick Rabiser joins the LIT | CPS Lab

Prof. Dr. Rick Rabiser joins the CPS Lab as Professor for "Software Engineering in Cyber-Physical Systems". His research interests include but are not limited to variability management, systems and software product lines, software maintenance and evolution, automated software engineering, requirements monitoring, and usability and user interface design.


October 2019: New researcher

DI Lisa Sonnleithner successfully completed her degree in mechatronics and supports us as a project employee.

August 2019: Interview with Prof. Alois Zoitl

Prof. Alois Zoitl has given an interview about the current status of our research lab. We are happy to announce that we will participate in an EU-funded project. The project fosters collaboration of reserachers in several European countries. The interview is available online (German only) at here.


June 2019: Moving into the new Open Innovation Center.

In June 2019 we moved into the new Open Innovation Center (OIC, behind TN tower). We are now located in the ground floor and enjoy the comfort of the new building!


April 2019: First Research Assistant.

We welcome Virendra Ashiwal, MSc at the LIT | CPS Lab. He researches on PLC programming.


December 2018: The lab is growing.

As second university assistant, DI Bianca Wiesmayr Anfang Dezember started working at the LIT | CPS Lab. She will research on modeling and component-based software design.


November 2018: Inaugural lecture - a popular tradition.

On November 5th the inaugural lectures of Martina Mara (Robopsychology) and Prof. Alois Zoitl took place in the Unicenter. Under the title Distributed Control Architectures for Adaptive Production Systems  we could learn a lot. The contents can be read <a href="" title="Link to event invitation">here</a>. After the lectures, all guests were able to exchange ideas while enjoying a buffet.

October 2018: The lab presents itself.

The founders of the LIT | CPS Lab as well as the institute itself introduced themselves to interested students at an exciting event at the Teichwerk at JKU. Following short presentations, career opportunities after graduation could be discussed in a relaxed atmosphere with snacks and drinks. All in all a great event, which we would like to repeat! A review can be found here and on the website of the Industriellenvereinigung. We would like to thank all speakers for their time.

September 2018: First employee.

Muddasir Shakil, MSc began in early September 2018 as a University Assistant at LIT | CPS Lab. His research topics are primarily OPC UA and agent-based architectures.


March 2018:  The lab is founded.

Prof. Dr. Alois Zoitl started as a professor for "Cyber-Physical Systems in Production and Engineering" in March 2018. This is the start of the LIT | CPS Lab.
