Nowadays, the deployment of Virtual Platform models is an industry-proven technique in a wide
variety of design tasks from pre-silicon software development to performance analysis and
exploration. With the increasing complexity, both in terms of the applications and the target
platforms (e.g. increasing number of cores, more complex memory hierarchies), the Virtual Platform
per se is not an answer to all of today’s design challenges. But by adding further abstraction to the
models, an increasing need for automated mapping, refinement, and model transformations is
needed. Formal, static, and dynamic analysis methods are increasingly dependent on platform
details, requiring traceability during all design phases.
This workshop aims to bring together developers, researchers, and managers from industry and
academia to develop a perspective for the future use of Virtual Platforms by exchanging knowledge
about current and future requirements and their possible solutions. The workshop will also provide
some space for the provision of state of the art and tangible results and session on tool demos.
