Framework and Multi-Formalism: the ASAR project

The main concern of the research project ASAR is to build a multi-formalism framework towards archtectural synthesis. This paper describes the CENTAUR system, used to build this framework, and the common intermediate data-flow format GC, that will be the common denominator of the different formalisms and tools available in that framework.
