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 the special section 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 systems.
  • 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:
Submissions should follow the usual ToDAES guidelines. Submissions go through When asked “Is this manuscript a candidate for a special issue?”, mark “Yes” to ensure that the paper is allocated to the guest editors of the special section.

IDEA 2016 workshop @ CPS week:
To further stimulate discussion in the dataflow community, we are organizing a workshop at CPS week in Vienna, April 11, 2016. Authors of papers submitted to the IDEA ToDAES special section that successfully pass the first round of reviews are invited to present their work at the workshop. Participation in the workshop will increase the visibility of the presented work and increase quality through the discussion at the workshop. See for more information about the workshop, including information on how to express interest to present the submitted work. Presentation and discussion at the workshop is optional and will not in any way influence acceptance for the special section.

International Workshop on Early Reliability Modeling for Aging and Variability in Silicon Systems

International Workshop on Early Reliability Modeling for Aging and Variability in Silicon Systems  (ERMAVSS)

Submission details at the bottom of this e_mail.Website :

Friday, March 18th 2016. Co-located with DATE (Design, Automation and Test in Europe) in Dresden, Germany.

Important Dates:

Submission Deadline :             December 4th 2015
Notification of Acceptance :    December 14th 2015
Final paper due :                       January 29th 2016

About the Workshop:

With the proliferation of integrated circuits implemented in the most advanced process technologies, there is a growing need to jointly analyze the effect of multiple sources of failures including variability and aging and to understand, early in the design cycle, their impact on system reliability. Today, conservative margins are required to ensure that devices operate correctly over their full lifetime, despite the impact of aging effects (BTI, HCI) and failure mechanisms such as EM. New methodologies for improved cross-layer modeling and mitigation, if planned early in the design of a product, have the potential to remove unnecessary conservatism, reduce power and cost and improve yield. This workshop is focused on sharing new research on techniques and methodologies for modeling the effects of failures due to transistor aging, variability and other mechanisms all the way from the cell level to system level. New approaches to perform early estimations of system reliability are much needed to enabling reliable, optimized and low-power designs.

Authors are invited to submit a 2-4 page short paper (using the standard IEEE two-column conference format) on topics related to:

  • Early reliability modeling for complex silicon devices
  • Advanced Modeling of degradation effects (HCI, xBTI, EM) and variability
  • EDA flows and design tools for analyzing the effects of variability and aging
  • Assessment of semiconductor degradation and failure effects on embedded and safety critical systems
  • Modeling of the effects of environment, mission profile and workload on reliability
