The workshop will have two parts
- The first two days are devoted to a limited set of scientific presentations and (lots of) discussions concerning three major areas:
(1) Modular design strategies for distributed embedded systems (composable analysis methods; rich component concepts, design methodologies)
(2) Predictability and Efficiency (exploitation of the trade-off; approaches to predictability vs. efficiency from hardware platforms to software systems)
(3) Design Space Exploration and Application Scenarios (applications in automotive, sensor and actuator networks, mechatronics; multi-objective optimization and bio-inspired exploration methods)
As embedded systems are becoming more and more distributed and are comprised of an increasing number of co-operating individual components, we think that the above areas pose specific scientific challenges and lead to an emerging paradigm shift in design and analysis.
- The third and fourth day are devoted to Performance Analysis of Embedded Systems. The idea would be to:
(a) define a set of benchmark examples
(b) compare existing methods such as real-time calculus, holistic methods, Symta/S, timed automata
The workshop was a ’real’ workshop in the sense that actually the benchmarks were defined and the comparison was done during the meeting.
