CFP: IDEA 2016


                         2nd International Workshop

  Integrating Dataflow, Embedded computing and Architecture, IDEA 2016

                      Vienna, Austria, April 11, 2016


                     in conjunction with CPS week 2016


— Selected papers will be considered for publication in ACM ToDAES —






Submission deadline: January 8, 2016

Author notification: March 4, 2016

Workshop: April 11, 2016





The dataflow model of computation (with SDF, CSDF, and DDF as primary

representatives) offers a powerful perspective on parallel computations

that may be conditioned in terms of data dependencies. It dates back to

the nineteen sixties and has applications in the design of real-time

stream-processing systems, especially in the area of digital signal

processing. The dataflow model of computation fits the characteristics

of embedded and cyber-physical systems, with a strong emphasis on both

the functional and temporal aspects of data processing systems. Dataflow

is gaining renewed popularity, stimulated by the trend towards multi-core

and multi-processor architectures, with an influx of work ranging from

using dataflow as a programming paradigm, for performance analysis, or

for design optimization. Topics of interest for IDEA 2016 include, but are

not limited to:


– Dataflow architectures and dataflow as a programming paradigm for multi-core

  and multi-processor systems, for embedded systems and for cyber-physical


– Tools for compilation, evaluation, optimization or synthesis of applications

  for heterogeneous and homogeneous multi-processor systems.

– Real-time scheduling, analysis, response time modeling, schedule synthesis.

– Variants of the dataflow model of computation, capturing e.g. dynamic

  execution behavior, stochastic dataflow.

– Dataflow theory, relations between dataflow and other models of computation,

  relations between dataflow variants.

– Dataflow in multi-disciplinary design, applications of dataflow in control,

  integrating dataflow and control theory.

– Case studies of general interest describing the application of dataflow in

  embedded computing and cyber-physical systems, ranging from automotive

  systems, and avionics, to high-tech systems, smart buildings and smart grids.


*** Submission guidelines ***


IDEA 2016 invites two types of submissions: full papers and interactive


– Full paper submissions will be considered for publication in a special section

of ACM ToDAES and should follow the guidelines of the journal; see below.

– Interactive presentations can be anything from a poster to a demonstration of

software or a prototype. Interactive presentation proposals should be submitted

in the form of a 2-page abstract.


Submissions should be made electronically, via EasyChair:

Detailed submission guidelines can be found at the IDEA 2016 homepage.




All accepted full paper submissions will be considered for publication in a

SPECIAL SECTION of ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Embedded Systems,

ACM ToDAES, Full paper submissions for IDEA 2016 should follow

the ACM ToDAES author guidelines. Authors of papers accepted for IDEA 2016 are

expected to present their work at the workshop. After the workshop, revised

versions of the accepted workshop papers will undergo a second review round to

decide upon acceptance for the special section of ACM ToDAES.
