TecDay 13. / 14. October 2015

Multicore - The challenge in avionics

The ESSEI is a research lab founded in 2012 aiming at improving the development process for complex, reliable and maintainable software intensive avionic systems.

The ESSEI TecDay is supposed to intensify the exchange on latest developments and research in the field of software engineering for avionics. The topics include improvements in the development process, technological issues in hardware and software and the certification process.

The objective of this workshop is to bring together CPU manufacturers, software developers, authorities and researchers from industry and academia to present and discuss recent work in the area of multi-core computing. The workshop is organized as an activity within the network "German ASSET Initiative".

The scope of the workshop is both hardware and software aspects of multi-core computing, including system certification aspects. Topics presented include:

  • Multi-core roadmaps of major CPU vendors
  • Programming models, frameworks and environments for exploiting parallelism
  • Parallel algorithms and applications
  • Compiler optimizations and techniques for multi-core systems
  • Operating system, middleware, and run-time system support for multi-core
  • Correctness and performance analysis of parallel hardware and software
  • Tools and methods for development and evaluation of multi-core systems
  • Power, energy and performance efficient designs
  • Certification aspects of avionic systems based on multi-core
