Report from Dagstuhl Seminar 12272

Architectural modeling of complex embedded systems is gaining prominence in recent years, both in academia and in industry. An architectural model represents components in a distributed system as boxes with well-defined interfaces, connections between ports on component interfaces, and specifies component properties that can be used in analytical reasoning about the model. Models are hierarchically organized, so that each box can contain another system inside, with its own set of boxes and

The goal of Dagstuhl Seminar 12272 "Architecture-Driven Semantic Analysis of Embedded Systems" is to bring together researchers who are interested in defining precise semantics of an architecture description language and using it for building tools that generate analytical models from architectural ones, as well as generate code and configuration scripts for the system. This report documents the program and the outcomes of the presentations and working groups held during the seminar.
