Here's a selection of possible bachelor and master topics. If you're interested in one of them, don't hesitate to contact us! We'll sit down, have tea, and talk about what we could do together.
- 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.
- Multicore Layout
Find good ways of distributing layout tasks in hierarchical diagrams to the different cores of multicore CPUs. Also, evaluate when a multithreaded approach starts to make sense, and how best to implement it.
- 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.
