Chess Seminar Goals

The objective of each seminar is to motivate others to understand the research topic. This should be done in a deep enough way to encourage understanding of its technical and scientific merits, but on a high-enough level such that non-technical audience members are not distracted by esoteric nuances of the topic. At the end of a presentation, each audience member should have a capability to explain the contributions of the presentation topic to Chess's goals.

About the audience

The members of Chess are dispersed across several distinct groups working under different research supervisors. Research topics, while generally in embedded systems, concentrate in areas such as control, software development, chipset architectures, computational techniques, and actor-oriented modeling.

The range of technical proficiency in each of these topics is also quite varied, with most participants holding at least a Bachelor's Degree in EE (rarely, ME) or CS. Audience members will be graduate students, postdocs, professors, and research staff, who will each participate in research in diverse ways (e.g., writing code, proving system stability, or managing the research of others).

About the Chess message

Chess is dedicated to the development of model-based and tool-supported design methodologies for real-time fault tolerant software on heterogeneous distributed platforms. Its objective is to bridge the gap between computer science and systems science by developing the foundations of a modern systems science that is simultaneously computational and physical. This represents a major departure from the current, separated structure of computer science (CS), computer engineering (CE), and electrical engineering (EE): it reintegrates information and physical sciences.

About the Chess seminar series

Current research in embedded systems is emerging from diverse areas, and a Chess goal is to begin to merge some of these techniques. The Chess seminar series provides a weekly forum for the problems and solutions found and solved by Chess members, as well as ongoing research updates. This forum works best when the audience is diverse in background, because the goal is to aid researchers in seeing how the other sub-disciplines are approaching similar problems, or to encourage them to work on problems they had not yet considered.
