Call For Papers

Third Workshop on Architecture Centric Virtual Integration at

WICSA and CompArch 2016


Important dates
* Paper Submission Deadline: February 18, 2016
* Paper Notification to Authors: March, 4 2016
* Camera-ready due: March, 11 2016
* Workshop Date: TBD

Architectural modeling and model-based technologies provide
foundations to perform early analysis of designs. These technologies
provide virtual integration capabilities by weaving architectural
models to other formal models (behavioral, error, mechanical, etc.).
Such virtual integration capability allows for a wide variety of
analysis techniques such as performance, safety, security analysis,
connection with requirements but also code generation and simulation
of models.

The Architecture-Centric Virtual Integration (ACVI) workshop is an
opportunity to gather researchers and industrial practitioners to
share and identify gaps in existing efforts related to virtual
integration, including (but not limited to) safety-critical systems
modeling, analysis and simulation

Cyber-Physical systems (CPS) combine many challenges to meet requirements for
reusability, interoperability, flexibility or dependability. The use of
architecture description language helps to integrate components before
implementing the system. Such integration approach eases system design analysis
and implementation, detects design errors and potential defects before
development efforts, avoiding re-engineering costs and making the system more
robust and safe.
This first edition of this workshop seeks contributions from researchers and
practitioners interested in architecture-centric methods and their use to design
and analyze systems. The conference topics of interest are:
* Modeling Notations: new languages, inter-operability between languages
* Architecture Centric Analysis Tools
* Virtual Integration Process and Tools
* Definition of extensions for the design of specific systems (e.g. avionics) or
support of a particular analysis (e.g. safety)
* Automatic Code Generation from Models
* Model Transformation
* Model Analysis Methods
* Support of Certification (e.g. DO178C) using Models
* Industrial experiences of use of Model-Based technologies

Paper submission
To contribute, please send a position paper or a technical paper via easychair
