LP-EMS15 Workshop on Design of Low Power Embedded Multimedia Systems

5 Janvier 2015

Catégorie : Conférence internationale

Aim and Scope

Digital Media Technologies (DMTs) constitute one of the widest and most important research areas in the ICT domain. Digital technologies fostered the design of complex systems for creation, fruition and sharing of audio/video/image contents pervading consumer electronics. A key challenge in this domain regards the possibility of implementing real-time high-performance multimedia systems minimizing, contemporarily, their power consumption.

Complexity on algorithmic side and heterogeneity on processing platform side, are normally colliding system constraints. It is necessary to close the gap between efficient processing and optimal hardware support by adopting smart hardware-software co-design solutions and flexible design frameworks.

In this perspective, dataflow-streaming based system models are naturally capable of capturing domain-specific knowledge into formal abstract system specifications capable of exposing the intrinsic potential parallelism of the algorithms. Such representations result very appropriate to model and explore the design space of DMTs applications.
