"In this panel, designers and researchers who have practical experience with heterogeneous multiprocessor systems, both commercial and research, will draw on those experiences and answer questions such as:
What works in heterogeneous multiprocessor debug?  What are the successful methods and approaches?
What challenges are encountered in real life?
Would new standards help meet the challenges?  Are there new standards developments coming?
How will the methods of today scale to the heterogeneous manycore systems that will come tomorrow?"
