WoTUG - The place for concurrent processes

Annual Conference: Communicating Process Architectures

Communicating Process Architectures 2018, the 40th. WoTUG conference on concurrent and parallel systems, takes place from Sunday August 19th. to Wednesday August 22nd. 2018 and is hosted by Professor Dr. Rainer Spallek, Chair of VLSI Design, Diagnostics and Architecture at the Faculty of Computer Science, Technische Universit├Ąt Dresden, Germany. The conference is organised by Dr. Spallek in collboration with Oliver Knodel and Uwe Mielke and in partnership with WoTUG.

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.

A Communicating Threads Case Study: JIWY

By Jan F. Broenink, Gerald H. Hilderink, Dusko S. Jovanovic

We strive to allow a control system designer the power of designing control computer code concurrently and generating it efficiently, in spite of her or his lack of skills in software engineering. This is important for many reasons. Nowdays, it is impossible to separate control engineering from software engineering. There is no way of implementing control strategies other than to transform them into computer code for the chosen processing target. Usually, there are not so many general-purpose programmers available in control engineering research teams in companies and universities. In these cases, software development techniques suffer from insufficient knowledge in disciplines of software modelling, concurrency, reusability and testing. This paper develops a case study whose solution is based upon the CSP principles supported by the Communicating Threads libraries developed at Twente and argues why the techniques are accessible to non-computing-specialist control engineers.
