Call For Papers

Embedded system designs have evolved over time from single memory based designs to homogeneous processing units connected by an on-chip network. The number of cores to be integrated in a single chip is expected to rapidly increase in the coming years, moving from multi-core to many-core architectures and hold the promise of increasing performance through parallelism. As the number of cores integrated into a chip increases, the on-chip communication might becomes power and performance bottleneck. Given that Many-core Embedded Systems (MES) provide an infrastructure for better modularity, scalability, fault-tolerance, and higher bandwidth compared to traditional infrastructures, developing applications using the full power of NoC-based MES requires software developers to transition from writing serial programs to writing parallel programs. On top of that, managing many-core resources and designing scalable and faultless operating systems will be a tremendous challenge in future MES.

This special issue aims to foster the dissemination of high quality research in any new idea, method, theory and technique related to Many-core Embedded Systems design with a focus on parallel programming and architectures support issues, as well as to enhance its state-of-the-art. Original and research articles are solicited in all aspects of theoretical studies, programming methodologies, and experimental prototypes, modeling, scalable and fault tolerant design approaches and frameworks, algorithms, software and tools, analysis and comparison, and emerging implementations. The papers will be peer reviewed and selected on the basis of both their quality and their relevance to the theme of this special issue.

Topics of interest include:

Programming models and languages for EMS
Compilers and virtualization techniques
Many-core architecture customization
Memory management
Design space exploration for EMS
Runtime resource management
Thermal aware design
Fault-tolerant and reliable design
Specification and Formal modeling of EMS
Architectures, integration and synthesis for EMS
Heterogeneous multi-core and many-core architectures
Hardware/software co-design
