Abstract
This paper makes the case that the time is right to introduce temporal semantics into programming models for cyber-physical systems. Specifically, we argue for a programming model called PTIDES that provides a coordination language rooted in discrete event semantics, supported by a lightweight runtime framework and tools for verifying concurrent software components. PTIDES leverages recent innovations in network time synchronization to deliver distributed real-time systems with determinate concurrent semantics, decentralized and robust control, and the potential for rigorous schedulability analysis.
