In this talk, we address some fundamental issues related to the modeling and optimization of power and performance of next generation of integrated systems while taking a cyber-physical approach. As such, the focus of the design methodology is not only on establishing a reliable communication infrastructure between the computational elements, but also on including time, communication, and feedback-based control as intrinsic components of the programming model; this goal allows us generalize the classical computational paradigm such that more direct interaction between the cyber-system and physical world becomes possible. Starting from these overarching ideas, we argue that the complex requirements for high-performance and low-power design, as well as reliable and safe operation of future integrated systems call for a truly multidisciplinary approach which brings together concepts and techniques from real-time computing and signal processing, multiprocessor architecture and OS design, as well as distributed and self-organized control.
