Architecture-Driven Semantic Analysis of Embedded Systems (Dagstuhl Seminar 12272)
• Special Report
This seminar report was published by Schloss Dagstuhl in October 2012.
Architectural modeling of complex embedded systems has been gaining prominence in recent years, both in academia and in industry. An architectural model represents components in a distributed system as boxes with well-defined interfaces and connections between ports on component interfaces, and it specifies component properties that can be used in analytical reasoning about the model. Models are hierarchically organized, so each box can contain another system inside, with its own set of boxes and connections between them. The goal of Dagstuhl Seminar 12272, "Architecture-Driven Semantic Analysis of Embedded Systems," is to bring together researchers who are interested in defining precise semantics of an architecture description language and using it for building tools that generate analytical models from architectural ones, as well as generate code and configuration scripts for the system. This report documents the program and the outcomes of the presentations and working groups held during the seminar.
