Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

This Special Issue invites submissions from researchers and practitioners working in the areas of CPS and/or IoT. The main objective of this Special Issue is to promote a venue for cutting-edge research and technology related to the dependability of CPS/IoT across the software stack. The term dependability is an umbrella term that includes several properties of interest such as security, fault tolerance, availability, performance, timeliness, energy efficiency, scalability and reliability. The focus is on developing theoretical frameworks for the development of dependable CPS/IoT as well as engineering methods for modeling, designing and implementing CPS/IoT. Application domains include medical devices, intelligent transportation systems, disaster management, robotics, smart cities, connected vehicles, underwater systems, agricultural systems and environmental monitoring and control.

Manuscript Submission Information

Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.

Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Future Internet is an international peer-reviewed open access monthly journal published by MDPI.

Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1400 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.

We focus on the problem of adding fault-tolerance to an existing concurrent protocol in the presence of unchangeable environment actions. Such unchangeable actions occur in cases where a subset of components/processes cannot be modified since they represent third-party components or are constrained by physical laws. These actions differ from faults in that they are (1) simultaneously collaborative and disruptive, (2) essential for satisfying the specification and (3) possibly non-terminating. Hence, if these actions are modeled as faults while adding fault-tolerance, it causes existing model repair algorithms to declare failure to add fault-tolerance. We present a set of algorithms for adding stabilization and fault-tolerance for programs that run in the presence of environment actions. We prove the soundness, completeness and the complexity of our algorithms. We have implemented all of our algorithms using symbolic techniques in Java. The experimental results of our algorithms for various examples are also provided. Full article
