Call For Papers

Call for Papers

Embedded system design faces many challenges both with respect to functional requirements and nonfunctional requirements, many of which are conflicting. They are found in areas such as design and developer productivity, verification, validation, maintainability, and meeting performance goals and resource constraints. Novel design-time and run-time approaches are needed to meet the demand of emerging applications and to exploit new hardware paradigms, and in particular to scale up to multicores (including GPUs and FPGAs) and distributed systems built from multicores.

LCTES 2016 solicits papers presenting original work on programming languages, compilers, tools, theory, and architectures that help in overcoming these challenges. Research papers on innovative techniques are welcome, as well as experience papers on insights obtained by experimenting with real-world systems and applications.

Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics in embedded systems:

Programming language challenges, including:
Domain-specific languages
Features to exploit multicore, reconfigurable, and other emerging architectures
Features for distributed, adaptive, and real-time control embedded systems
Language capabilities for specification, composition, and construction of embedded systems
Language features and techniques to enhance reliability, verifiability, and security
Virtual machines, concurrency, inter-processor synchronization, and memory management

Compiler challenges, including:
Interaction between embedded architectures, operating systems, and compilers
Interpreters, binary translation, just-in-time compilation, and split compilation
Support for enhanced programmer productivity
Support for enhanced debugging, profiling, and exception/interrupt handling
Optimization for low power/energy, code and data size, and best-effort and real-time performance
Parameterized and structural compiler design space exploration and auto-tuning

Tools for analysis, specification, design, and implementation, including:
Hardware, system software, application software, and their interfaces
Distributed real-time control, media players, and reconfigurable architectures
System integration and testing
Performance estimation, monitoring, and tuning
Run-time system support for embedded systems
Design space exploration tools
Support for system security and system-level reliability
Approaches for cross-layer system optimization

Theory and foundations of embedded systems, including:
Predictability of resource behaviour: energy, space, time
Validation and verification, in particular of concurrent and distributed systems
Formal foundations of model-based design as basis for code generation, analysis, and verification
Mathematical foundations for embedded systems
Models of computations for embedded applications

Novel embedded architectures, including:
Design and implementation of novel architectures
Workload analysis and performance evaluation
Architecture support for new language features, virtualization, compiler techniques, debugging tools
Achitectural features to improve power/energy, code/data size, and predictability

Empirical studies and their reproduction, and confirmation
