WoTUG - The place for concurrent processes

Communicating Process Architectures

Communicating Process Architectures 2014, the 36th. WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel systems, takes place from Sunday August 24th to Wednesday August 27th 2014 and is hosted by the Department of Computer Science, University of Oxford. Accommodation and evening Fringe sessions will be at St. Anne's College, a few minutes walk from the Department.

About WoTUG

WoTUG provides a forum for the discussion and promotion of concurrency ideas, tools and products in computer science. It organises specialist workshops and annual conferences that address key concurrency issues at all levels of software and hardware granularity. WoTUG aims to progress the leading state of the art in:

  • theory (programming models, process algebra, semantics, ...);
  • practice (multicore processors and run-times, clusters, clouds, libraries, languages, verification, model checking, ...);
  • education (at school, undergraduate and postgraduate levels, ...);
  • applications (complex systems, modelling, supercomputing, embedded systems, robotics, games, e-commerce, ...);
and to stimulate discussion and ideas on the roles concurrency will play in the future:
  • for the next generation of scalable computer infrastructure (hard and soft) and application, where scaling means the ability to ramp up functionality (stay in control as complexity increases) as well as physical metrics (such as absolute performance and response times);
  • for system integrity (dependability, security, safety, liveness, ...);
  • for making things simple.
Of course, neither of the above sets of bullets are exclusive.

gCSP occam Code Generation for RMoX

By Marcel A. Groothuis, Geert K. Liet, Jan F. Broenink

gCSP is a graphical tool for creating and editing CSP diagrams. gCSP is used in our labs to generate the embedded software framework for our control systems. As a further extension to our gCSP tool, an occam code generator has been constructed. Generating occam from CSP diagrams gives opportunities to use the Raw-Metal occam eXperiment (RMoX) as a minimal operating system on the embedded control PCs in our mechatronics laboratory. In addition, all processors supported by KRoC can be reached from our graphical CSP tool. The commstime benchmark is used to show the trajectory for gCSP code generation for the RMoX operating system. The result is a simple means for using RMoX in our laboratory for our control systems. We want to use RMoX for future research on distributed control and for performance comparisons between a minimal operating system and our CTC++/RT-linux systems.
