Call For Papers

ACM SIGPLAN/SIGBED Conference on Languages, Compilers and Tools for Embedded systems (LCTES'17)
co-located with PLDI 2017
Barcelona, Spain
June 21-22, 2017

Paper submission: February 14, 2017
Author notification: March 31, 2017
Final version: April 15, 2017

LCTES provides a link between the programming languages and embedded systems engineering communities. Researchers and developers in these areas are addressing many similar problems, but with different backgrounds and approaches. LCTES is intended to expose researchers and developers from either area to relevant work and interesting problems in the other area and provide a forum where they can interact. To that end, LCTES ’17 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
- Architectural features to improve power/energy, code/data size, and predictability

* Mobile systems and IoT, including:
- Operating systems for mobile and IoT devices
- Compiler and software tools for mobile and IoT systems
- Energy management for mobile and IoT devices
- Memory and IO techniques for mobile and IoT devices

* Empirical studies and their reproduction, and confirmation

Submissions must be in ACM proceedings format, 9-point type, and may not exceed 10 pages (all inclusive). Word and LaTeX templates for this format are available on the ACM website ( Submissions must be in PDF, printable on US Letter and A4 sized paper. To enable double-blind reviewing, submissions must adhere to two rules:
- author names and their affiliations should be omitted; and,
- references to related work by the authors should be in the third person (e.g., not "We build on our previous work ..." but rather "We build on the work of ...").

However, nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult (e.g., important background references should not be omitted or anonymized). Papers must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere as discussed here. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright release.

Submission site:

All accepted papers will appear in the published proceedings. We expect to make a best paper award.

General Chair: Vijay Nagarajan, University of Edinburgh
Program Chair: Zili Shao, The Hong Kong Polytechnic University
