Special Session on Design of Heterogeneous Cyber-Physical Systems at DSD2012

Dr. Davide Quaglia (University of Verona, Italy) is arranging a special session at the 15th Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design.

Scope and topics:

Future cyber-physical systems will be heterogeneous systems made of components from different domains, such as digital (hardware, software, network) and analog (electronic, electromechanical, etc., as for instance MEMS, power sources, thermal sources, sensors and actuators). To fully exploit the potential of current nanoelectronics technologies, as well as to enable the integration of existing/new IPs and “More than Moore” devices, new methodologies and tools for multi-disciplinary and multi-scale design, modeling, and simulation are needed.

Papers on any of the following and related topics can be submitted to the special session:

  • Foundations of heterogeneous systems: discrete and hybrid models of computation; domain-specific languages for specification (e.g., SysML, SystemC-AMS, VHDL-AMS).
  • Efficient simulation and emulation of heterogeneous systems. Co-simulation techniques.
  • Design and optimization of heterogeneous systems and co-design techniques.
  • Case studies and applications include, but are not limited to, networked embedded systems and networked control systems taken from transportation (e.g., automotive), building automation, electricity generation and management, environmental monitoring, biomedical chips, tele-operation and robotics.

For you out there with an interest in smart dust (how to design them, how to simulate them, how to verify them), this could be a good session for you.

Yes – I’m in the review committee …
