Call For Papers
Microprocessors and Microsystems: Embedded Hardware Design (MICPRO) is a journal covering all design and architectural aspects related to embedded systems hardware. It includes different embedded system hardware platforms ranging from custom hardware via reconfigurable systems and application specific processors to general purpose embedded processors. Special emphasis is put on novel complex embedded architectures, such as systems on chip (SoC), systems on a programmable/reconfigurable chip (SoPC) and multi-processors on a chip (MPoC) as well as their communication methods, such as network-on-chip (NoC).

Design automation of such systems including methodologies, techniques and tools for their design as well as novel designs of hardware components fall within the scope of this journal. Novel applications that use embedded systems are also central in this journal. While software is not a part of this journal hardware/software co-design methods that consider interplay between software and hardware components with emphasis on hardware are also relevant here.

Special Issues
Special Issue on Mobile Systems Technologies
Submission Date: 2017-11-30

Mobile systems technologies encompass a range of solutions spanning from the bare hardware/firmware up to the design of applications fully aware of the requirements and constraints of a “mobile” world. Examples of systems belonging to this applicative area are smartphones, tablets, phablets, smartwatches, mobile and wearable systems (including medical ones). The enabling technologies, in addition to low power processing units, are those related to the emerging memory technologies, the efficient implementation of wireless protocols and novel design strategies that consider in a joint perspective performance, energy, dependability, security and functionalities. This special issue is soliciting submissions on the following main topics, although any other contribution in the field of “Mobile Systems” is similarly welcome: - Storage and memory systems: trends and solution tailored for a mobile world - Near zero computing and power aware mobile applications - Designing and tuning Hw and Sw for mobile systems - Multi-many cores for the new generation of mobile devices - Graphic processing and QoS management - Security, privacy and dependability in mobile systems - Cooperative mobile systems - System software for mobile devices - Integration of mobile technologies and IoT - Case studies and design experiences

Special Issue on European Projects in Embedded Systems Design (EPESD)
Submission Date: 2017-12-29

A Special Issue of the ISI-indexed MICROPROCESSORS AND MICROSYSTEMS (MICPRO) journal, published by Elsevier will be devoted in 2018 to recent advances and results of European Projects in Embedded Systems Design (EPESD). The aim of the Special Issue is to create an overview of the research performed in major just started, ongoing or recently finished European Projects of FP7, Artemis, H2020, ECSEL, Eniac, Medea+, etc. in the (Embedded) Digital Systems Design Area to widely disseminate the awareness and information on the projects, as well as, to create an opportunity for exchange of ideas, advanced discussions and cross-project collaborations. In particular, extended journal versions of papers are welcome which were presented in the Special Session on European Projects in Digital Systems Design of the DSD’2017 - the Euromicro Conference on Digital Systems Design held in Wien. Notice that the extended paper must contain at least 30% of new material different from the original work published in the conference proceedings possibly with a reformulated text of the unmodified parts, should have a tutorial value and should include clear explanations made with a high-quality graphical material (figures, graphs, etc.). Papers related to projects presented in the previous conference editions should report the current state of the projects and new/final project results. Please submit your extended or new paper, as soon as possible, but not later than on December 29th, 2017. All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted to the Special Issue on EPESD via the Elsevier online system of the journal, available at When submitting the paper please select "EPESD-2017" as the article type.
