ArtistDesign European Network of Excellence on Embedded Systems Design

SSS is part of ARTIST-DESIGN, (Network of Excellence on Embedded Systems Design) whose strategic objective is to strengthen European research in Embedded Systems Design, and promote the emergence of this new multi-disciplinary area. It brings together 31 of the best research teams as core partners, 15 industrial and SME affiliated industrial partners, 25 affiliated academic partners, and 5 affiliated international collaboration partners who participate actively in the technical meetings and events. The duration of ArtistDesign (contract number: NoE 214373) is 48 months (starting January 1st 2008) and the funding (EC contribution) is 4.5 M€.

The central objective for the ArtistDesign European Network of Excellence on Embedded Systems

Design is to build on existing structures and links forged in the FP6 Artist2 NoE, to become a virtual Center of Excellence in Embedded Systems Design. This is mainly achieved through tight integration between the central players of the European research community. These teams have already established a long-term vision for embedded systems in Europe, which advances the emergence of Embedded Systems as a mature discipline.

The research effort aims to integrate topics, teams, and competencies, through an ambitious and coherent research programme of research activities which are grouped into 4 Thematic Clusters: "Modelling and Validation", "Software Synthesis, Code Generation, and Timing Analysis", "Operating Systems and Networks", "Platforms and MPSoC". "Transversal Integration" covering both industrial applications and design issues aims for integration between clusters.
