State of the Art Research Meets Real-World Requirements

Oct. 1 2012, Toronto, Canada (@ iPres 2012)

The full-day iPRES 2012 workshop features an increasingly relevant topic in DP research — emulation. While emulation is now widely accepted as a necessary access strategy, mature software frameworks and workflows are still missing.
The workshop provides the opportunity to present latest research results, status quo of emulation application and use cases. It is intended to provide an additional forum for experts in emulation alongside the main conference to discuss current trends, today’s strategies and formulate future implementation and research agendas. Content holders will be given a platform to describe their challenges with complex data-objects to align research with practical problems.

The workshop will be split into two sessions, the first giving a broad overview on the field and summarize the state-of-the-art through short presentations from three domains: technical research in emulation, ongoing projects, and current challenges. The second will extend upon this by structuring and prioritizing the future research agenda and implementation of tools.

The detailed workshop program is now nearly finalized and online. The suggestion on working groups is preliminary and may be adapted to match the interests of the audience (e.g. reduce the number of use cases and add a group on emulators and original environments).
