The Eighth Biennial Ptolemy Miniconference was held on Thursday, April 16, 2009 at the University of California, Berkeley in the Wozniak Lounge, 4th Floor Soda Hall. We had 76 attendees from 37 different organizations spanning at least 10 countries.
(Note that Cyber-Physical Systems Week was held in San Francisco earlier in the week.)
|Note: We applied for and received an Opportunity Award from the UC Discovery Grant program to cover the costs of the tutorial and miniconference.|
On Wednesday, April 15, 2009, we held a tutorial for Java programmers interested in hands-on learning about Ptolemy.
The Ptolemy project studies modeling, simulation, and design of concurrent, real-time, embedded systems. The focus is on assembly of concurrent components.
The Ptolemy Miniconference is an opportunity for research collaborators and Ptolemy users and extenders from industry, academia, and government to get together, present their work to the Ptolemy community, and hear about related research and results. It is typically held every two years.
We again asked the Kepler community to give presentations and posters. Kepler is a cross-project collaboration to develop open source tools for Scientific Workflows and is currently based on the Ptolemy II system for heterogeneous concurrent modeling and design.
In addition, the miniconference acted as an annual meeting for the Center for Hybrid and Embedded Software Systems.
The presentations from the miniconference are available.
At miniconferences in the past we have had presentations and posters from organizations worldwide, plus members of the Ptolemy project describing current research at Berkeley.
Topics of interest for this year included:
- Applications of Ptolemy II or Kepler
- Model-based design techniques
- Concurrency models
- Applications of concurrency to multicore and distributed computing
- Code generation for embedded systems
- Model engineering methods
- Models of computation
- Workflow infrastructure
- Model transformation
- Model verification
- Semantics of models
- Performance evaluations
- Comparisons of model-based design tools
- Integration of multiple design tools
- Static analysis of models
- Provenance tracking techniques
- Data visualization and data management
- Visual syntaxes for models
