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.
