  • Wednesday, February 16, 2011: Miniconference

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.

In addition, the miniconference acted as an annual meeting for the Center for Hybrid and Embedded Software Systems.

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 past years have 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
