SAMOS XVI 2016 : International Conference on Embedded Computer Systems: Architectures, Modeling, and Simulation (SAMOS XVI)


When Jul 18, 2016 - Jul 21, 2016
Where Samos Island, Greece
Submission Deadline Feb 22, 2016
Notification Due May 2, 2016
Final Version Due May 30, 2016

Call For Papers

SAMOS is a unique conference. It deals with embedded systems (sort of)
but that is not what makes it different. It brings together every year
researchers from both academia and industry on the quiet and inspiring
northern mountainside of the Mediterranean island of Samos, which in
itself is different. But more importantly, it really fosters
collaboration rather than competition. Formal and intensive technical
sessions are only held in the mornings. A lively panel ends the formal
part of the day, and leads nicely into the afternoons and evenings --
reserved for informal discussions, good food, and the inviting Aegean
Sea. SAMOS has IEEE technical co-sponsorship by the IEEE CAS Society
and the IEEE SSCS Germany Chapter. The conference papers will be
published by IEEE and included in the IEEE Xplore and DBLP Database.
Authors are invited to submit technical papers in accordance to the
author's instructions describing original work in either one of the
Conference Tracks or one of the Special Sessions.

KEYNOTES. The conference keynotes are given by leaders in the field.
This year's keynotes will be given by ALEX NICOLAU, University of
California, Irvine (US) and URI WEISER, Technion - Israel Institute
of Technology (IL).

Technical submissions are invited on original work in one of the
following tracks:

** The Applications, Systems, Architectures, and Processors Track**

This track focuses on advances in systems efficiency in various domains.
We seek original contributions describing new architectural and micro
architectural techniques aiming to improve performance (e.g. processing
throughput or real-time latency), energy and power efficiency,
reliability and dependability of embedded systems. We solicit novel
architectures and computing methodologies and solutions for accelerating
applications in various embedded domains such as next generation life
sciences and medicine, next generation automotive and avionics, next
generation learning systems for surveillance and recognition, immersive
virtual reality. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Novel Architectures for Accelerators in High Performance Embedded
* Application-specific and Domain-specific Embedded Heterogeneous
Multicore Systems;
* Embedded Reconfigurable Processors;
* Software tools, Compilation techniques and optimizations, and Code
generation for Reconfigurable Architectures;
* Architecture synthesis from Functional Languages Descriptions;
* Virtualization and Energy-aware Secure, Reliable, and High
Availability Multi-core Architectures;
* Embedded Parallel Systems and Multiprocessor Systems-On-Chip;
* Application level Resource Management of Multi-core Architectures;
* Memory Management and Smart Caches for big data;
* Network-on-Chip, Software Defined Network-on-Chips.

** The Modeling, Design, and Design Space Exploration Track**

This track focuses on all design processes for embedded systems ranging
from system-level specification, design languages, modeling and
simulation, performance, power, reliability and thermal estimation and
analysis, hardware/software and system synthesis, design and design
space exploration methodologies down to hardware and software synthesis
and compilation strategies. Topics of interest include (but are not
limited to):

* Hardware/Software and Algorithm/Architecture Co-design;
* Design Space Exploration Strategies, Algorithms and CAD Tools;
* Specification Languages and Models;
* System-Level Design, Simulation, and Verification;
* Hardware, Software and System Synthesis Techniques and CAD Tools;
* MP-SoC and Platform Based Design Methodologies;
* MP-SoC Programming, Compilers, Simulation and Mapping Technologies;
* Profiling, Measurement and Analysis Techniques and CAD Tools;
* (Design for) System Adaptivity;
* Testing and Debugging.

The agenda of the conference will include a panel coordinated by Trevor
Mudge, University of Michigan - Ann Arbor (US) and Yale Patt, University
of Texas at Austin (US). The topic of the panel is "Open Mic", and often
digs deeper into topics presented during the morning sessions.

SAMOS will provide 10 travel grants to authors and participants, who are
students from Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Portugal, and Spain and, in general,
to people with limited support from their organizations.
