  Applications, Solutions, and Techniques

High performance embedded computing has recently become more and more
present in devices used in everyday life. A wide variety of
applications, from consumer electronics to biomedical systems, require
building up powerful yet cheap embedded devices. In this context,
embedded software has turned out to be more and more complex, posing new
challenging issues: the adoption of further flexible programming
paradigms/architectures is becoming almost mandatory. Nonetheless, even
nowadays the development of embedded systems must rely on a tight
coupling of hardware and software components. Moreover, the market
pressure calls for the employment of new methodologies for shortening
the development time and for driving the evolution of existing products.
New efficient solutions to problems emerging in this setting can be put
into action by means of a joint effort of academia and industry.

Design of embedded systems must take into account a wide variety of
constraints: performance, code size, power consumption, presence of
real-time tasks, maintainability, security and possibly scalability: the
more convenient trade-off has to be found, often operating on a large
number of different parameters. In this scenario, solutions can be
proposed at different levels of abstraction, making use of an assortment
of tools and methodologies: researchers and practitioners have a chance
to propose new ideas and to compare experimentations.

The focus of this conference track is on the application of both novel
and well-known techniques to the embedded systems development.
Particular attention is paid to solutions that require expertise in
different fields (e.g. computer architecture, OS, compilers, security,
software engineering, simulation). The track will benefit also from
direct experiences in the employment of embedded devices in
"unconventional" application areas, so to show up new challenges in the
system design/development process. In this setting, researchers and
practitioners from academia and industry will get a chance to keep in
touch with problems, open issues and future directions in the field of
development of dedicated applications for embedded systems.
