Computer Automated Multi-Paradigm Modeling

Over the last decades engineered systems have reached a tremendous level of complexity, involving expertise from many disciplines and entailing a variety of implementation technologies (e.g., embedded software, microelectromechanical systems, analog circuits, and digital circuits). The heterogeneous nature of these systems invariably combines with an architecture of different concurrent components that interact through continuous signals or discrete message passing. The corresponding increased level of complexity has led to the use of more formal approaches to system design through realization.

Efficient and effective approaches apply dedicated modeling formalisms to different aspects of the system. Consequently, the complete system specification process combines several modeling, design, implementation, and realization paradigms (e.g., differential equation modeling, continuous time signal processing, and discrete event controllers) and decomposition of the entire specification task allows teams of experts to concurrently work on their domain of expertise. In the area of computer aided control system design this includes, e.g., control system design, simulation, optimization, modeling, and verification.

Each of these paradigms have different modeling languages (textual and/or graphical) and rely on different computational models.

Many of the references in the combined papers are in the form of URLs. These are compiled in one list of references.

In addition to these sessions, two special issues of international journals on the topic of Computer Automated Multi-Paradigm Modeling are organized:
