DEVS wrapping of the FMI standard for the co-simulation of Cyber-Physical Systems in MECSYCO
Most modeling and simulation (M&S) questions about cyber-physical systems (CPS) require expert skills belonging to different scientific fields. The challenges are then to integrate each domain tool (formalism and simulation software) within the rigorous framework of M&S process. To answer this issue, we proposed the specifications of the MECSYCO co-simulation middleware. MECSYCO relies on the universality of the DEVS formalism to integrate models written in different formalisms. This integration is based on a wrapping strategy in order to make models implemented with different simulation software interoperable. So far, we successfully defined DEVS wrappers for discrete modeling tools like the MAS simulator NetLogo, and the IP network simulators NS-3 and OMNeT++/INET. Aside from several difficulties met at the software level, making these discrete modeling tools compliant with the DEVS simulation protocol was a straightforward process. This is due to the fact that these platforms have a discrete modeling paradigm very close to DEVS. However, things getting more complex with equation-based tools as their continuous modeling paradigm is very different from the discrete DEVS one. Thus, we need to bridge the gap between the discrete and the continuous paradigms. A more complex wrapping strategy based on the hybrid capacity of DEVS is required. Regarding this issue, wrapping each of these equation-based tools (e.g. OpenModelica, Dymola, Matlab/Simulink) separately would be very inefficient. In this talk, I will detail how we tackle this issue by defining DEVS wrappers for the FMI standard which brings a generic API to manipulate equation-based models and their solvers. We perform this wrapping using the DEV&DESS hybrid formalism and the QSS numerical method. The DEVS wrapping of FMI we propose is not restricted to MECSYCO but can be performed in any DEVS-based platform.

Mecsyco: Multi-agent Environment for the Co-simulation of COmplex systems
Most modeling and simulation (M&S) questions about complex systems require to take simultaneously account of several points of view. Phenomena evolving at different scales and at different levels of resolution have to be considered. Moreover, expert skills belonging to different scientific fields are needed. The challenges are then to reconcile these heterogeneous points of view, and to integrate each domain tools (formalisms and simulation software) within the rigorous framework of the M&S process.
This talk will present the mecsyco co-simulation middleware (mecsyco.com). Mecsyco r elies on the universality of the DEVS formalism to integrate models written in different formalism. This integration is based on a wrapping strategy in order to make models implemented in different simulation software inter-operable. The middleware performs the co-simulation in a parallel, decentralized and distributable fashion thanks to its modular multi-agent architecture.

SARL - Agent-oriented Programming Language
SARL is a general-purpose agent-oriented language. It aims at providing the fundamental abstractions for dealing with concurrency, distribution, interaction, decentralization, reactivity, autonomy and dynamic reconfiguration. These high-level features are now considered as the major requirements for an easy and practical implementation of modern complex software applications, and specifically agent-oriented programming. This talk will introduce you to the advances of the SARL agent programming languages, and provides several examples of usages.
