General Scope

The dataflow model of computation offers a powerful perspective on parallel computations that may be conditioned in terms of data dependencies. It dates back to the sixties and has applications in the design of real-time stream-processing systems, especially in the area of digital signal processing. As a model of computation that fits embedded multi-core system architectures, dataflow is gaining renewed popularity, with an influx of work ranging from using dataflow as a programming paradigm, for performance analysis, or for design optimization.

Dataflow is gaining popularity among researchers around Europe and the world. However, research on dataflow is limited to small pockets in different communities without a common forum for discussion. The goal of this workshop is to provide a platform dedicated to the discussion of emerging ideas in modeling and analysis of present and future high performance computing architectures using dataflow. Furthermore we hope to increase exposure and strengthen communication among different research groups working on dataflow.

We especially invite new PhD students and Post-Docs exploring into dataflow modeling and analysis. The workshop offers an informal setting to discuss and exchange ideas, and to get in touch with experts in the field. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Dataflow as a programming paradigm for embedded applications.
  • Real-time scheduling, analysis, response modeling techniques, for embedded systems.
  • Tools for compilation, evaluation, optimization or synthesis of applications for heterogeneous / homogeneous multi-processor systems with respect to shared bus, shared memory, buffer sizing, power consumption, etc.
  • New variants of the dataflow model of computation to capture dynamic execution behavior.
  • Analysis of data flow graphs using other models of computation.
