    In this paper, we investigate how the need for static analysis of data flowing through Networks-on-Chip in many-core and SoC systems may be eliminated, yet still allow network optimisations to improve runtime behaviour. Our approach is to replace a priori static analysis with run-time optimisations, taking place in the network itself. To do this, we introduce our self-optimising NoC topology: Skip...
