Call For Papers

Multi-core processors are increasingly used in the implementation of embedded control systems as well as many other compute-intensive applications. To satisfy the demand of multi-functional embedded systems such as real-time image recognition and human body interaction plus gesture control, heterogeneous processors are needed. A heterogeneous multi-core processor integrates different types of processors (such as GPU, DSP, and general processors) in the same chip. However, practical real-time scheduling algorithms as well as supporting run-time and analysis tools on these processors are insufficiently available. This special issue is devoted to topics related to the design and analysis of real-time schedulers for heterogeneous multi-core systems. Such topics include, but are not limited to:

Scheduling algorithms and schedulability analysis;
Preemptive, non-preemptive, and abort-and-restart scheduling;
Co-scheduling of hardware resources;
Parallel task models and analysis;
Hierarchical scheduling;
Functional reactive programming;
Hardware-software co-design;
Synchronization and shared resource protocols;
Virtualization techniques;
Power and thermal management;
Timing analysis;
Operating systems;
Compilation techniques;
And application studies.
