The ARTIST Summer School 2008 was held in the beautiful Vercors mountains in Autrans, near Grenoble, Sept 8-12. The school was organised by the Artist2 European Network of Excellence on Embedded Systems Design, which gathers 42 top European institutions. Artist’s mission is to coordinate European research in the area around an ambitious joint research agenda, and to spread excellence through targeted events such as international workshops, schools and seminars.
Artist has a strong tradition in organising top-quality schools. This is the fourth edition of yearly schools on embedded systems design, and is meant to be exceptional in terms of both breadth of coverage and invited speakers.
The topics covered include Modeling and Validation, Compilers and Timing Analysis, Adaptive Real Time Systems, Control for Embedded Systems, Execution Platforms and MPSoC. We seek a balance between foundational aspects and applications. Speakers included recognized leading researchers and engineers.
The school was open to PhD students, researchers, and engineers. Attendance will be limited to 80 selected participants.
Grants were available to partially cover some of the costs of the school. See here
