Emerging Computational Paradigms and Architectures for Multicore Platforms
IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing
Special Issue/Section
Fourth Issue of 2016
IEEE Transaction on Emerging Topics in Computing (TETC) seeks original manuscripts for a Special Issue/Section on emerging computational paradigms and architectures for multicore platforms scheduled to appear in the fourth issue of 2016.

Multicore and many core embedded architectures are emerging as computational platforms in many application domains
ranging for high performance computing to deeply embedded systems. The new generations of parallel systems, both
homogeneous and heterogeneous that are developed on top of these architectures represent what is called the emerging
computing continuum paradigm. A successful evolution of this paradigm is however imposing various challenges from
both an architectural and a programming point of view. The design of embedded multicores/manycores requires innovative
hardware specification and modeling strategies, as well as low power simulation, analysis and testing. New synthesis
approaches, possibly including reliability and variability compensation, are key issues in the coming technology nodes.
Furthermore, thermal aware design is mandatory to manage power density issues. The design of effective interconnection
networks is a key enabling technology in a manycore paradigm. New solutions such as photonics and RF NoCs
architectures are emerging solutions on this regard. At the same time, these new interconnection systems have to be
compliant with innovative 3D VLSI packaging technologies involving vertical interconnections in 3D and stacked ICs.
These design solutions enable the integration of more and more IPs, resulting in heterogeneous platform where
reconfigurable components, multi-DSP engines and GPUs collaborate to provide the target performance and energy
requirements. Along with design and architectural innovations, many challenges have to be faced to enable an effective
programming environment to many core systems. These challenges call from innovative solutions at the various levels of
the programming toolchain, including compilers, programming models, runtime management and operating systems
aspects. Holistic and cross-layer programming approaches have to be targeted considering not only performance, but also
energy, dependability and real-time requirements. Finally, on the application side, multicore/manycore embedded systems
are pushing developments in various domains such as biomedical, health care, internet of things, smart mobility, and
This special issue/section asks for emerging computation technology aspects related, but not limited to the mentioned
topics. Contributions must be original and highlight emerging computation technologies in design, testing and
programming multicore and manycore systems.
