Annual international System-on-Chip symposium was held at Tampere once again. This year the conference had about 20 presentations and 4 invited speakers, for example Hank Hoffmann (Univ. Chicago) had very interesting observations about multicore chips and their on-chip communication. Our department had 3 papers and all were made by Kactus2 team:
M. Honkonen et al., WOKE: A novel workflow model editor.
T.Hämäläinen, E. Salminen, Gamification of System-on-Chip Design.
J. Virtanen et al., Implementation of Multicore Communications API.
SoC was co-located with Norchip and it was announced that these two conferences will merge next year. The new conference shall be called NorCAS and held next year in Oslo.
