1st International Workshop on Model-Based Design with a Focus on Extra-Functional Properties (MBDEFP)

26. November 2011

October 13th 2011, Taipei, Taiwan in conjunction with the Embedded Systems Week

In the last decade there has been a rapid growth of embedded electronic controls for safety-critical applications in avionics, automotives, industrial automation, medical instrumentation, power generation etc. The size and complexity of these systems are growing exponentially. Model-based design has proved a viable approach to develop quality hardware and software for such large systems. Current state-of-the-art model-driven development tools focus predominantly on functional behavior. However, many different extra-functional properties, such as resource constraints, safety and Quality-of-Service issues, energy efficiency, etc. must be taken into account. The developer has to ensure that the generated code complies with the requirements concerning these extra-functional properties. This workshop aims to discuss recent results of integrating extra-functional properties into model-driven development tools. The workshop covers fundamental results, their application in methods and tools as well as concrete implementations and use cases.


  • State-of-the-art techniques in model-based research and tools to design, develop, verify, and implement safety-critical systems.
  • Foundations of integrating extra-functional properties into domain-specific languages
  • Foundations on multi-criteria design optimization with respect to extra-functional properties
  • Synthesis of systems considering functional and extra-functional requirements
  • Concrete tools / domain-specific languages targeting extra-functional properties such as resource constraints, dependability, security, quality-of-service, energy efficiency and combination of these
  • Application areas, e.g. automotive, home and industry automation, avionics, energy, health care, mobile devices
