The engineering of Systems of Systems presents daunting challenges. In this paper it is argued that rigorous semantic foundations for model-based techniques are potentially beneficial in addressing these. Three priorities for current research are identified: contractual interface definition, the verification of emergent behaviour, and the need to deal with semantic heterogeneity of constituent systems and their models.
