The Eighth Biennial Ptolemy Miniconference will be held on Thursday,
April 16, 2009 at the University of California, Berkeley.

We will hold a Ptolemy Ptutorial for Java programmers on April 15, 2009.

Cyber-Physical Systems Week ( is being held in
San Francisco earlier in the week.

The Ptolemy project ( studies modeling, simulation,
and design of concurrent, real-time, embedded systems. The focus is on
assembly of concurrent components.

The Ptolemy Miniconference is an opportunity for research
collaborators and Ptolemy users and extenders from industry, academia,
and government to get together, present their work to the Ptolemy
community, and hear about related research and results. It is
typically held every two years.

This year, we have again asked the Kepler community to give
presentations and posters. Kepler ( is a
cross-project collaboration to develop open source tools for
Scientific Workflows and is currently based on the Ptolemy II system
for heterogeneous concurrent modeling nd design.

In addition, the miniconference will act as an annual meeting for the
Center for Hybrid and Embedded Software Systems

At Miniconferences in the past we have had presentations and
posters from organizations worldwide, plus members of the Ptolemy
project describing current research at Berkeley.

Topics of interest for this year include:
     * Applications of Ptolemy II or Kepler
     * Model-based design techniques
     * Concurrency models
     * Applications of concurrency to multicore and distributed
     * Code generation for embedded systems
     * Model engineering methods
     * Models of computation
     * Workflow infrastructure
     * Model transformation
     * Model verification
     * Semantics of models
     * Performance evaluations
     * Comparisons of model-based design tools
     * Integration of multiple design tools
     * Static analysis of models
     * Provenance tracking techniques
     * Data visualization and data management
     * Visual syntaxes for models

If you have suggestions for posters and presentations, please send an
abstract to
ptconf09 at ptolemy dot eecs dot berkeley dot edu
by January 9, 2009

Our plan is to have 20 minute presentations and a poster session.
We will also have 3 minute poster presentations.  These are informal
rapid fire summaries of the posters.

We will hold a tutorial on April 15, the day _before_ the
Miniconference.  The tutorial is for Java programmers who are
interested in extending Ptolemy.

The tutorial program is in the process of being developed, we hope
 to include topics such as
   * Writing actors for Code generation
   * Using the Event Relation Graph domain
   * Using the model transformation facility
Other topics will be added to the tutorial.

If you are interested in giving a tutorial, please email us at
ptconf09 at ptolemy dot eecs dot berkeley dot edu

Please register for the tutorial and conference. Registration will close on
April 10. In the past, the conference has sold out, so we recommend
registering early.
