TACLe action: applications for Short Term Scientific Missions (STSM)


For TACLe's Group Partners:

There are available up to 10 short term scientific missions per year
for joint work in the area of code level timing analysis. The application process
is lightweight, and applications will be evaluated on the fly and as fast as possible
by the STSM assessment panel.

As a participant to TACLe, could you please :

- encourage ALL the members of your research group working on the area
   to join the TACLe mailing list (for that purpose, just send a mail to Raimund Kirner
   with the first name / last name / e-mail of the person to be added)

- forward this e-mail to the members of your group not yet in the TACLe mailing

- personally encourage the members of your group (specially PhD students, post-docs,
   main targets of STSMs, but also more senior researchers) to apply for a STSM

A description of the objectives of STSMs, typical duration, application procedures, ...
well, everything relative to short term scientific missions is available on the STSM pages:

Don't hesitate to get in touch with me if you need further information,

TACLe Focussed Meeting Day


                TACLe Focussed Meeting Day on
                  Friday, September 27, 2013
            Vienna University of Technology, Austria

The increased power of the singlecore and multicore processors used in
embedded systems allows system designers to put more functionality and
more complex functions under computer control.
As many applications entail safety and time-critical functionality the computer
systems embedded in these applications must meet highest safety and timing

On the TACLe Focussed Meeting Day on Time
Predictability/Composability/Compositionality we will discuss how one can
build complex embedded computer systems for applications such that the
timing of software components can be predicted with justifiable effort,
timing guarantees can be given, and timing interferences between different
hardware/software units can be kept to a minimum.

The presentations of the meeting day will present different views and aspects
of the problem domain and will provide plenty of time for discussion.

2nd Workshop on Software Quality Analysis, Monitoring, Improvement, and Applications (SQAMIA 2013)


The main goal of SQAMIA workshop series is to provide a forum for presentation, discussion and dissemination of the latest scientific findings in the area of software quality, and the establishment and improvement of interaction and cooperation between scientists and young researchers from the region and beyond. SQAMIA 2013 is a continuation of the successful event held in 2012. Previous workshop, the first one, was organized within the 5th Balkan Conference in Informatics (BCI 2012) in Novi Sad. In 2013 SQAMIA becomes standalone event in intention to become traditional meeting of the scientists and practitioners in the field of software quality.

The workshop welcomes papers addressing research on all four mentioned aspects (Analysis, Monitoring, Improvement, and Applications) of dealing with the quality of software. Position papers, papers describing the work-in-progress, tool demonstration papers, technical reports or other papers that would provoke discussions are especially welcome.

For more information please visit Workshop Website Homepage.

2nd Meeting 2013, Paris, France: July 8


* Venue: room EM216, 10 rue Michel Sextius, 75015 Paris

         where will be WCET workshop and ECRTS conference

         more information:

* The meeting will start at 9.00 and should end around 18.00

* For lunch, each participant will get an email with additional details.

* Contact: Claire Maiza, e-mail: claire.maiza <at>

TACLe short term scientific missions; applications are open!


TACLe COST action has funds to finance up to 10 short term scientific missions (STSM) every year.

We are now ready to process the applications for STSMs. The applications procedures are available on the TACLe STSM pages:

Please encourage your PhD students and post-docs, main targets of STSMs to apply. Don't hesitate to get in touch with me (or with Stefan/Vesa, members of the STSM assessment panel) if you need further information.

Looking forward to receiving many submissions for fruitful collaborations in the field of WCET/timing analysis!

CFP: "Special Issue on Self-Adaptive Networked Embedded Systems" in Design Automation for Embedded Systems (Springer Journal)


Submission deadline: Sep 1st, 2013
Self-adaptive computing with its concept originating from artificial intelligence and software engineering, is now broadly explored in software, hardware and system design and widely applied in diverse application areas. A self-adaptive system monitors its own status, and adjusts its own behaviors to approach desirable improvement. This special issue focuses on the self-adaptive paradigm on networked embedded systems (NES), a scalable embedded computing infrastructure for different applications. In particular, self-monitoring and self-reconfiguration can be applied to improve performance, minimize power/energy consumption, tolerate faults, or support other potential features. The realization of self-adaptive features on NES requires the expertise of designing run-time reconfiguration techniques on resource-constrained computing and communication platforms, e.g. sensor networks, multi-core or many-core systems, soft or hard real-time systems, Internet-of-Things (IoT), Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), etc. The design space exploration and automation process are challenged by the means to enable, facilitate and extend the emerging adaptive features.
