Research Seminar - January 19, 2011- Rigorous Component-based System Design Using the BIP Framework

Professor Joseph Sifakis will host a Research Seminar on January 19, 2011 at 3:30 pm at the ISDE/ISIS School of Engineering location at 1025 16th Avenue South in Suite 213.

Rigorous system design requires the use of a single powerful component framework allowing the representation of the designed system at different levels of abstraction, from application software to its implementation. Such a framework allows to maintain overall coherency and correctness of the design flow by comparing different architectural solutions and their properties.
