Call for Abstracts

Please submit proposals for posters and presentations to ptconf15 at ptolemy dot eecs dot berkeley dot edu
by July 31, 2015.

Eleventh Biennial Ptolemy Miniconference will be held on Friday October 16, 2015 at the Bancroft Hotel Great Hall near the University of California, Berkeley campus.

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 will act as an annual meeting for the Center for Hybrid and Embedded Software Systems (CHESS,

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.

The focus of the 11th Biennial Ptolemy Miniconference will be how Ptolemy supports the Internet of Important Things. In particular, we are interested in:

  • Swarmlets and Accessors
  • Machine Learning and Big Data
  • High Level Architecture
  • Functional Mock-up Interface (FMI)
  • Time as a first class citizen in hardware, networking and computation
  • Safety and Security of Cyber Physical Systems
  • Novel use cases 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

If you have suggestions for posters and presentations, please send a one page abstract to ptconf15 at ptolemy dot eecs dot berkeley dot edu by July 31, 2015

Our plan is to have 20 minute presentations and a poster session. We will also have 3 minute poster presentations. These are informal rapid fire summaries of the posters. We encourage live demonstrations during the presentations and posters. Due to time constraints, demonstrations will not be possible during the poster presentations.

Please register for the conference. Registration will close on Friday, October 2, 2015. In the past, the workshop has filled prior to the deadline, so we recommend registering early.
