ARTIST2 Meeting on IMA (Integrated Modular Avionics)
November 12-13, 2007,  Rome, Italy

Today, the exponentially increasing diversity of airborne systems results in an 
ever increasing number of computers and controllers for system management, 
monitoring, and control. The development of specific ad-hoc solutions causes 
increases in costs, which in turn impacts purchase prices and operational 
To overcome this, standardization principles and reuse of function units are 
considered, via Integrated Modular Avionics. Integrated Modular Avionics (IMA) 
has set the principles of standardized components and interfaces of hardware 
software in aircraft. These principles have been applied in particular in the 
development of the Airbus A380. Further developing IMA raises a number of 
that require fundamental research efforts, in tight coordination with 
engineering needs.

ARTIST2, the European Network of Excellence on embedded systems has decided to 
organize, as part of its activity on "scientific challenges in specific 
industrial sectors", a two-day workshop dedicated to Systems, Software, and 
Architecture, aspects of IMA.

The workshop aims to analyze:

     * the issues and difficulties encountered by aircraft manufacturers
       and their suppliers,
     * the specific research problems that result from the above issues, and,
     * the recent advances in research that may contribute to overcoming
       the above difficulties.

See the agenda http://www.artist-embedded.org/artist/Agenda,931.html

This workshop will ne a unique opportunity to gather best specialists of IMA in 
industry together with best academic researchers in Systems, Software, and 
Architecture interested in their application to embedded systems.
