- Control flow graph exploration/visualization
Use pragmatics concepts (automatic layout, focus & context) for exploring/visualizing control flow graphs and specific paths, eg. as computed by OTAWA WCET analysis tool, eg. using Klighd.
- SyncCharts and actor model visualization
Develop an integrated viewer for SyncCharts and KAOM models using KLighD, including view management techniques such as focus & context and structure-based editing.
- Validation manager for models
Develop an integrated, flexible and generic syntactic validation framework for models (e.g. Esterel or SyncCharts).
- Esterel / SyncCharts Validation
Automate the validation for a (generic) SyncCharts simulator employing the Esterel simulator and the Esterel to SyncCharts transformation.
- Transformation from SyncCharts to Esterel [possibly also Master Topic]
Develop a transformation in Xtend2 to generate Esterel code for SyncCharts.
- Layering algorithms
Implement an alternative algorithm for the layer assignment problem used in the layer-based approach to graph layout.
- Heuristics for Side Aware Edge Label Placement
Think about and implement heuristic algorithms for solving the edge aware edge label placement problem for placing edge labels in data flow diagrams.
- Incremental Update for Klighd
Incremental update of Klighd data structure after editing.
- Visualizing Model Edits/Changes
Develop and implement methods to visualize a model while it is edited. A particular concern here is the preservation of the mental map.
- SyncCharts in Yakindu
Develop a SyncChart-Editor based on Yakindu, including basic pragmatics concept (automatic layout, collapse/expand, structure-based editing) and interfacing to host-language.
- FPGA Statecharts
Development of a Statecharts editor, based on .NET, WPF, MS Silverlight. Synthesis onto FPGAs with a data-flow-based intermediate format.
- Diagram description language
Developing the concepts and implementation of a diagram description language based on Klighd, with SyncCharts as application example.
Integrate the synchronous Quartz language into KIELER for validation purposes and teaching.
