The Sixth Biennial Ptolemy Miniconference was held on Thursday May 12, 2005 at the Soda Hall HP Auditorium on the University of California campus, Berkeley, California. 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.

This year, we invited the Kepler community to jointly organize the conference, under the leadership of Bertram Ludaescher, and 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. We also invited David Bacon from IBM to give an invited talk on real-time Java. David is one of the world's top experts in this area.

The program includes presentations and posters from organizations worldwide, plus members of the Ptolemy project describing current research at Berkeley.
The presentations have the following titles:

  • Ptolemy Project Status and Overview
  • Kepler Project Status and Overview
  • The Distributed-SDF Domain
  • Distributed Computing in Kepler
  • Some Developments in the Tagged Signal Model
  • Semantic Data Type System for Kepler
  • Workflow Exchange and Archival: The KSW File
  • Programming with actors
  • Large scale networked system simulation using MLDesigner
  • Operational Semantics for Hybrid Systems
  • Experiences in Integration of the 'R' System into Kepler
  • Bravely Using Java in the New World of Complex Real-time Systems
  • Future Directions
