Call For Papers

Call for Papers - ARCS 2015

28th International Conference on
Architecture of Computing Systems

March 24th-27th, 2015, Porto, Portugal


The ARCS series of conferences has over 30 years of tradition reporting high quality results in computer architecture and operating systems research. The focus of the 2015 conference will be on reconciling parallelism and predictability in mixed-critical systems. Like the previous conferences in this series, it continues to be an important forum for computer architecture research, including also workshops and tutorials within its technical scope.

The proceedings of ARCS 2015 will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes on Computer Science (LNCS) series. After the conference, authors of selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their contribution for publication in a special issue of the Elsevier Journal of Systems Architecture (JSA). Also, a best paper and best presentation award will be provided at the conference.

In 2015, ARCS will be organized by the CISTER Research Centre, and hosted by the School of Engineering of the Polytechnic of Porto.
The conference will be held from March 24, 2015 through March 27, 2015.

Topics of interest

Authors are invited to submit original, unpublished research papers on one of the following topics:

Multi-/many-core architectures, memory systems, and interconnection networks.

Models and tools for multi-/many-core systems including but not limited to programming models, runtime systems, middleware, and verification.

Design, methods, and hardware and software architectures for mixed-critical systems.

Architectures and design methods/tools for robust, fault-tolerant, real-time embedded systems.

Generic and application-specific accelerators in heterogeneous architectures.

Cyber-physical systems and distributed computing architectures.

Adaptive system architectures such as reconfigurable systems in hardware and software.

Organic and Autonomic Computing including both theoretical and practical results on self-organization, self-configuration, self-optimization, self-healing, and self-protection techniques.

Operating Systems including but not limited to scheduling, memory management, power management, and RTOS.

Energy-awareness and green computing.

System aspects of ubiquitous and pervasive computing such as sensor nodes, novel input/output devices, novel computing platforms, architecture modeling, and middleware.

Grid and cloud computing.
