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 2020 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.

Paper Categories:

    Full paper: 10 pages presenting original work.
    Work-in-progress paper: 4 pages papers presenting original ideas that are likely to trigger interesting discussions.

Accepted papers in both categories will appear in the proceedings published by ACM.

This year LCTES is introducing a journal mode in addition to the usual conference mode. All accepted full papers will be invited to be published in a special issue of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS).

Original contributions are solicited on the topics of interest including, but not limited to:

    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

        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
