Modeling and Design of Next Generation Self-X MPSoC Platforms

UC Irvine, California
Due the current uncertainties and governmental travel restrictions in connection to COVID-19 we have to postpone the Wolfgang Hillen Summer School. A new date in Winter 2020/2021 or Summer 2021 will be announced soon.


With the recent successful developments in artificial intelligence, several research activities are being carried out to bring self-X properties (as self-adaptivity, self-awareness, self-organization, self-healing, etc.) to embedded systems, leading the path toward smart embedded systems. One key step is to abstract the complexity of enabling self-X properties into a model allowing the control and steering of a system’s dynamics at runtime, to enable these self-X features.

Research groups of the University of California, Irvine (UCI), Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Technische Universität Braunschweig have proposed a model called the ‘Information Processing Factory’ (IPF) that aims to show how these self-X properties can be achieved across multiple abstraction levels of a Multi-Processor System-on-Chip (MPSoC) platform and for a mixed critical application scenario. Based on a platform-centric design approach, IPF combines self-organized learning and formal reactive methods to guarantee the applicability of such self-X systems in safety-critical and high-availability applications.

The Wolfgang Hillen Summer School by UCI and TUM wants to share the finding of IPF in an interactive and practical manner with three goals in mind:

The Wolfgang Hillen Summer School takes place at UCI with experts from local technology companies to present the State of the Art of self-X systems in industry and researchers from University of California, Irvine, Technical University of Munich and Technische Universität Braunschweig conveying the IPF concept and obtained results in form of seminars and workshops.
