Call For Papers

We are pleased to inform you about a Special Issue titled "Compiler Frameworks and Co-design Methodologies for Heterogeneous Systems-on-Chip" that will appear in the IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and Systems (TCAD).
We encourage you and your collaborators to submit new significant research-based technical contributions within the scope of this journal.

Nowadays, heterogeneous architectures are employed to limit the cost per function and boost energy efficiency in several computing domains, from high-performance computing (HPC) to embedded systems. Advanced heterogeneous systems-on-chip combine diverse processing elements, such as general-purpose processors (GPP), graphics processor units (GPU), digital signal processors (DSP), field-programmable gate arrays (FPGA), and many application-specific hardware accelerators. To fully exploit the power of these platforms and overcome the limits of conventional architectures, system and application designers need new tools and methodologies to address the increasing hardware/software complexity and achieve high productivity.

This special issue aims to provide the targeted readers with the new advances and challenges in the area of compiler frameworks, hardware/software methodologies, and related tools to aid the design of complex heterogeneous systems. Relevant topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Compiler frameworks and co-design workflows for heterogeneous hardware
* End-to-end frameworks targeting heterogeneous specialized units
* Application-specific co-design methodologies for heterogeneous platforms
* Synergistic HW/SW techniques to promote parallelism in heterogeneous computing
* Novel programming paradigms to promote heterogeneous design
* Source-to-source translation and (semi-)automatic code generation for heterogeneous architectures
* Methodologies to improve software portability across heterogeneous targets

Submissions to this Special Issue must represent original material that has been neither submitted to, nor published in, any other journal. All submitted manuscripts must follow the TCAD guidelines:
