The market for embedded processors is driven primarily by two factors: cost and volume. This has forced a reevaluation of the best way to satisfy users' needs for high performance and low energy consumption without drastically increasing the complexity of the design process. Domain-specific embedded processors, in markets such as network processing, automotive, and others, have splintered a pre-existing market for general-purpose, low-cost, low-energy processors. Reprogrammable and reconfigurable embedded processors, in contrast, offer a single, fixed-silicon device that could amortize manufacturing costs for low-to-medium volume market segments. SASP explores (micro)architectural design approaches, trade-offs and compiler technologies, for both domain-specific and customizable embedded processors. The symposium is a forum wherein challenges and solutions will be explored, discussed and compared.
Major topics include, but are not limited to:
* Domain-specific processors (Network, multimedia, etc.)
* Application-specific hardware accelerators
* Microarchitectural customization techniques
* (Re)configurable architectures (coarse-grained, FPGA, etc.)
* Application-specific processors in system-on-a-chip (SOC)
* Application-specific customizations for low-power
* Applications and/or industrial experience
* Compiler technology targeting customizable processors
* Tools, techniques, and algorithms for architectural exploration
* Methodologies and tools for hardware/software codesign
* Application specific MPSoC and design automation for NoCs
* Hardware/software for GPUs and other graphics/gaming platforms
* OS and middleware support for application specific processors
The Program Committee invites authors to submit papers up to 8 pages in length, describing original, unpublished work. Published papers will be 6 pages in length, and authors will have the opportunity to purchase up to 2 additional pages for a fee. Papers submitted to SASP must not be under review elsewhere.
Papers should clearly describe the nature of the work, explain its significance, highlight novel features, and describe its current status. Paper submission will be considered evidence that, upon acceptance, the author(s) will present their paper at the symposium.
Proceedings will appear in the IEEE Digital Library; a special issue in a major ACM or IEEE journal is also planned for the best papers.
Electronic submission through the symposium website is required.
