SCADA and DCS systems are in the heart of the modern industrial infrastructure. The rapid changes in the networked embedded systems and the way industrial applications are designed and implemented, call for a shift in the architectural paradigm. Next generation SCADA and DCS systems will be able to foster cross-layer collaboration with the shop-floor devices as well as in-network and enterprise applications. Ecosystems driven by (web) service based interactions will enable stronger coupling of
