              4th International Workshop on Hardware/Software Co-design
                                                    Codes/CASHE '96

                                      Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
Sheraton at Station Square
                                                    March 18-20, 1996


The increasing complexity of electronic systems requires a closer link
between hardware and software development. In recent years, computer
aided HW/SW co-design has developed into a new research focus in academia
and industry. The Codes/CASHE (Computer Aided SW/HW Engineering)
workshop is the major international forum for the presentation and
exchange of ideas and advanced work, and for the identification of new
rewsearch topics in this field. It addresses theoretical aspects,
methods, and tools for computer aided HW/SW co-design. The workshop will
consist of short oral presentations combined with poster sessions, and of
group discussions on selected topics.

This e-mail includes the advance program and registration information.
This information may also be found on the Worldwide Web at:


The workshop puts emphasis on discussions and open sessions rather than
on conference-style presentations. The 18 selected papers are presented
in 5 paper sessions which start with a 10 minute oral introduction of
each paper followed by a poster discussion of all papers of a session.

The proposed topics of the parallel group discussions are announced on
the workshop web page together with a short introduction by the
moderators. This gives everybody the opportunity to prepare for the
discussions. We can still add topics. Just send an email to the program
chair together with a short statement on the motivation and an outline on
what should be discussed. The proposers will be asked to moderate the
sessions. The results of the group discussions will be summarized in the
workshop web page.

Two complementary session forms allow every workshop participant to
present recent work or ideas. All participants can bring a poster to the
open poster session. After the workshop, we will list the titles of the
posters in the workshop web page and set a pointer to the authors. The
"rump" session at the end of the workshop is a plenary session divided in
5 minute slots which are assigned to anybody who wants to make a short
statement on any co-design related topic which people should take home to
think about, possibly some problems or new aspects which came up during
the workshop or just reflections on workshop contents. If there is enough
material we could include a summary of the session in the web page.
