FDL 2016

Forum on Specification & Design Languages


 September 14-16 2016, Bremen, Germany


Call for Papers

Abstract Deadline: Apr 26, 2016

Paper Deadline: May 3, 2016



Apr 22, 2016 -- FDL is an international forum to exchange experiences and promote new trends in the application of languages, their associated design methods and tools for the design of electronic systems. FDL stimulates scientific and controversial discussions within and in-between scientific topics as described below. The program structure includes research working sessions, embedded tutorials, panels, and technical discussions. The Forum includes tutorials and fringe meetings, such as user group or standardization meetings. “Wild and Crazy Ideas” are also welcome.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts on topics including, but not limited to:

* Formalisms & Languages:

Requirements & Property specification (RSLs, PSLs, SVA, …), Extra-functional specification (timing, power, temperature, aging, …), Multi-domain parallel applications in dynamic real-time environments, Models of computation, Automata (xFSM, …), Networks (Process Networks, Petri Nets, Task Networks), Platform modelling and abstraction, Transaction level modelling, Run-time system and middleware abstraction, Model and component-based design (UML, SysML, MARTE, …), Advanced language extensions for SLDLs (SystemC(-AMS), Modelica, VHDL-AMS, SystemVerilog, Verilog-AMS,…)

* Tools & Techniques:

Formal property checking, Modeling, Simulation & Formal Checking of functional and extra-functional properties, Parallel simulation, Compiler support for multi-core/many-core architectures as well as GPUs and FPGAs, Accelerators in heterogeneous computing platforms, Code analysis and optimization for different metrics, High-level hardware and software synthesis, Testbench automation and Coverage monitoring, Design space exploration and virtual prototyping, Scheduling & real-time analysis

* Design Flows & Methodologies:

Horizontal and vertical virtual integration testing, Requirements engineering and traceability, Mixed critical embedded applications on multi-core multi-CPU SoCs, Power and performance, Safety and security, Heterogeneous (mixed-signal/multiphysical) component integration, Multi-objective optimization, Model-Driven Engineering, Modeling and design of Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS)

===== Special Sessions =====

Professionals are invited to submit papers for Special Sessions on the following topics:

  • Designing Reliable Cyber-Physical Systems
  • Resilient Embedded Electronic Systems
  • Reliability and Safety in VP-based Embedded System Development
  • Tools and techniques – Compiler support for multi-core/many-core architectures as well as GPUs, Accelerators in heterogeneous computing platforms
  • System Performance Modeling & Analysis Based on Extra-Functional Properties
