Current Issues in Electronic Modeling

Description

Current Issues in Electronic Modeling is a series of volumes publishing high quality, peer-reviewed papers dealing with modeling issues in the electronic domain. The objective is to establish a unique communication channel between academia and industry which will serve the growing needs in the field of modeling.
Electronic hardware modeling is the art of describing a device, or a system, for a given purpose (simulation, synthesis, etc.) by the use of preestablished conventions (charts, languages). Modeling is attractive since it provides for simplification and abstraction of the actual object or process. Using common modeling techniques and conventions facilitates communication and information sharing and helps speed the process of design, fabrication, testing and manufacturing.
Over the last several years there has been a dramatic increase in the development and use of modeling languages, models, and modeling techniques. The overall objective of this series is to provide a platform for dissemination of the basic concepts, techniques, and applications of modeling. Needs: Although much literature on modeling is available, it is widely distributed. This dedicated series has been initiated for the following reasons:
  • First, the interest in the discipline of modeling is growing rapidly as more and more individuals and organizations become involved in complex electronic design.
  • Second, it is evident that modeling transcends many levels of the process of electronic design as well as multi-disciplines.
This series brings together users and generators and provide a platform for sharing theory, practice and application of modeling, modeling methods, and modeling techniques.
The series covers, but is not limited to, the following topics:
  • Modeling practice in the area of Simulation, Synthesis, Timing, Analog, and other domains.
  • Languages and paradigm issues regarding languages, Object oriented modeling, Mixed level modeling, and System level modeling.
  • Meta-modeling, (i.e. modeling the process of modeling), and modeling models.
  • Information modeling in the domain of electronic design.
  • Specification, formal methods and languages, and the validation models.
