Invasive Computing – The Quest for Many-Core Efficency

The design of complex systems starts from a set of requirements and incrementally adds design decisions until implementation is built. The contract-based paradigm, founded on the use of contracts as formal requirements, allows distributed designers to develop different aspects and components of the overall system in a concurrent but controlled way. This talk describes the use of contract-based design for bridging the gap between requirements and implementations as well as the challenges to successfully apply the methodology to complex, distributed, evolving systems.
