Call For Papers

Embedded system design faces many challenges both with respect to functional requirements
and nonfunctional requirements, many of which are conflicting. They are found in areas such as
design and developer productivity, verification, validation, maintainability, and meeting performance
goals and resource constraints. Novel design-time and run-time approaches are needed to meet
the demand of emerging applications and to exploit new hardware paradigms, and in particular
to scale up to multicores (including GPUs and FPGAs) and distributed systems built from multicores.

LCTES 2013 solicits papers presenting original work on programming languages, compilers, tools,
theory, and architectures that help in overcoming these challenges. Research papers on innovative
techniques are welcome, as well as experience papers on insights obtained by experimenting with
real-world systems and applications.

Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics in embedded systems:

Programming language challenges, including:

Domain-specific languages
Features to exploit multicore, reconfigurable, and other emerging architectures
Features for distributed, adaptive, and real-time control embedded systems
Language capabilities for specification, composition, and construction of embedded systems
Language features and techniques to enhance reliability, verifiability, and security
Virtual machines, concurrency, inter-processor synchronization, and memory management

Compiler challenges, including:

Interaction between embedded architectures, operating systems, and compilers
Interpreters, binary translation, just-in-time compilation, and split compilation
Support for enhanced programmer productivity
Support for enhanced debugging, profiling, and exception/interrupt handling
Optimization for low power/energy, code and data size, and best-effort and real-time performance
Parameterized and structural compiler design space exploration and autotuning

Tools for analysis, specification, design, and implementation, including:

Hardware, system software, application software, and their interfaces
Distributed real-time control, media players, and reconfigurable architectures
System integration and testing
Performance estimation, monitoring, and tuning
Run-time system support for embedded systems
Design space exploration tools
Support for system security and system-level reliability
Approaches for cross-layer system optimization

Theory and foundations of embedded systems, including:

Predictability of resource behavior: energy, space, time
Validation and verification, in particular of concurrent and distributed systems
Formal foundations of model-based design as basis for code generation, analysis, and verification
Mathematical foundations for embedded systems
Models of computations for embedded applications

Novel embedded architectures, including:

Design and implementation of novel architectures
Workload analysis and performance evaluation
Architecture support for new language features, virtualization, compiler techniques, debugging tools

Important Dates

- Paper submission: Friday, 8 February 2013; Anywhere on Earth
- Author notification: Sunday, 31 March 2013
- Final version: Thursday, 18 April 2013; 12:00noon EDT


Submissions must be in ACM proceedings format, 9-point type, and may not exceed 10 pages (all inclusive).
Word and LaTeX templates for this format are available at
Submissions must be in PDF, printable on US
Letter and A4 sized paper. To enable double-blind reviewing, submissions must adhere to two rules:

author names and their affiliations must be omitted; and,
references to related work by the authors should be in the third person
(e.g., not "We build on our previous work ..." but rather "We build on the work of ...").

However, nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of
reviewing the paper more difficult (e.g., important background references should not be omitted or
anonymized). Papers must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere
as discussed here:
Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright release.

There will also be poster and work-in-progress presentations.

The best paper will receive an award.
