The first ARTIST / UNU-IIST Spring School on Models, Methods and Tools for Embedded Systems has been held in Xi’an, China, April 3rd – 15th 2006.
- The school gathered more than 50 participants, of which approximately 40 were students from the top universities in mainland China: Peking University; Nangjing University; Institute of Software, Chinese Academy of Science; East China Normal University; Southwest University; Xidian University; Wuhan University; Northwest University; ZhengZhou University; Northwest Polytechnical University; National University of Defense Technology.
- The local organisation and logistics were of high quality, thanks to the excellent contribution from the Northwest Polytechnical University at Xi’an. The main lecturers for the school were four European researchers from ARTIST2 (Prof. Lothar Thiele, Peter Marwedel, Joseph Sifakis, Wang Yi).
- These main lectures were usefully complemented by seminars from distinguished Chinese researchers: Prof. Zhou Chaochen, He Jifeng and Zhiming Liu. Given the success of this first edition, it has been decided to organise a second ARTIST2 school in China, near Shanghai in 2007.
