ISSC 2004 Belfast

I am currently attending ISSC 2004 where I was presenting some research in the area of system design.
Again the main attraction for me this year is the chance to discuss concepts with my peers across a variety of colleges.
The two most common question I encountered today regarding my work of modelling the IXP1200 using OO techniques, where.
1. Why do you want to create a s/w model of a silicon design?
2. What is UML ?
I found that my sequence diagrams and class diagrams really brought home the idea of why OO techniques are so powerful.
The questions I recieved certainly helped to focus my thoughts as to what should be done next.
Queens University should be congratulated for the excellent conference that they are hosting.

ISSC 2004 Belfast

I have been quiet busy the past few days preparing for the ISSC 2004 conference in Belfast where I will be presenting some findings from our succesful attempt to model the IXP1200 network processor using an OO language. The OO techniques included developing sequence and class diagrams of the IXP1200. This was very interesting excerise and allows the non network processor expert to quickly ascertain how the NP functions.
I am looking forward to attending this event and speaking with my peers in this area of research.
