The abstract follows.
Synchronous Dataflow (SDF in short) were introduced in 1987 by Lee and
Messerschmitt to model data exchanges in embedded systems. A SDF is
usually defined by a directed graph, where each node is associated to a
task that may be executed infinetly often. Each arc represents a buffer
between two tasks. Moreover, the number of data samples produced or
consumed by each task on each execution is specified a priori. Nowadays,
SDF are considered by several scientific communities. It allows for
example to model the exchanges for the design of Digital Signal
Processings, or in real-time applications to run on a complex
architecture. The purpose of this talk is to present a set of
mathematical results developed on SDF, and to show how to use them to
solve concrete problems posed by their users. We will also do the link
with classical cyclic scheduling problems by demonstrating that the
buffers can be associated to usual precedence constraints between
successive task executions. We will conclude by some challenging open

The next talk in our series will be:
Greet Vanden Berghe (KU Leuven) | October 12 | Vehicle routing - a focus
on heuristic design.
