Submission Date: December 30, 2013
Nowadays, real-time and embedded systems have become increasingly sophisticated, with new and continuous evolving hardware designs and software, albeit with a drawback of the hardware design outpacing the software development. This has given rise to issues related to increased development life cycles, non recurring engineering costs, and poor synergism between the different development teams related to hardware and software development. It is also evident that in the near future, embedded systems will become more complicated to design unless new and effective methodologies are developed to combat aspects related to embedded software design.
*Objective of the Book*
The book will provide contributions from practitioners of the embedded systems community, both from the industry as well as the academia, involved in the European research projects focusing on real-time and embedded systems. These projects focus on a diverse range of design principles related to these complex systems, ranging from their specification at high abstraction levels using standards such as UML and related profiles (SySML, MARTE, AUTOSAR, etc.), to intermediate design phases related to verification, timing, scheduling, and performance analysis, down to low level implementation details related to the underlying execution platforms (e.g., synthesis, placement and routing on FPGAs, SoCs and NoCs).
The target audience of this book will be designers of embedded software, academicians, students, practitioners, professionals, and researchers working in the field of real-time and embedded systems development. This book will be invaluable for theoretical analysis, algorithms, and practical applications of software engineering for real-time and embedded systems.
*Recommended topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
• Real-Time and Embedded Software Development Process
• Software Engineering Challenges for Real-Time and Embedded Applications
• Requirements Elicitation Approaches for Real-Time and Embedded Applications
• Requirement Specification and Modeling
• Analysis and Design Methods for Real-Time and Embedded Applications
• Design Patterns
• Model Driven Development
• Methodologies and Tools for System Design
• Compilers and CASE/CAD Tools
• Frameworks for Hardware/Software co-design
• System level Modeling of Hardware/Software Systems
• Performance analysis and Measurement
• Embedded Testing Standards
• Testing methodologies (Simulation, Formal Methods, Board testing, FPGA testing, System-on-Chip testing, etc.)
• Test Quality and Reliability
• Configuration Management for Real-Time and Embedded Applications
• Project management for Real-Time and Embedded Applications
• Formal Approaches to Design, Verification and Validation
Researchers and practitioners are invited to submit on or before May 30, 2013, a 1-2 page chapter proposal clearly explaining the mission and concerns of his or her proposed chapter. Authors should submit their proposal via EasyChair as a PDF or plain text document. Authors of accepted proposals will be notified by June 15, 2013 about the status of their proposals and sent chapter guidelines. Full chapters are expected to be submitted by September 30, 2013. All submitted chapters will be reviewed on as double-blind review basis. Contributors may also be requested to serve as reviewers for this project.
The following information should be included in the chapter proposal:
Name and affiliation
References of up to five of the most relevant publications related to the chapter proposal
Chapter mission and topics intended to be covered by the chapter
Contact author information
The authors should send the proposal to EasyChair at https://www.easychair.org/account/signin.cgi?conf=irpesd14.
This book is scheduled to be published by IGI Global (formerly Idea Group Inc.), publisher of the “Information Science Reference” (formerly Idea Group Reference), “Medical Information Science Reference,” “Business Science Reference,” and “Engineering Science Reference” imprints.
