LCTES 2012 - Languages, Compilers, Tools & Theory for Embedded Systems

Beijing, China
12-13 June, 2012



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 and distributed
systems built from multicores. LCTES 2012 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
Programming language challenges, including:

* Domain-specific languages
* Features to exploit multicore, reconfigurable, and other emerging
* Features for distributed, adaptive, and real-time control embedded
* 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
* Interpreters, binary translation, just-in-time compilation, and split
* Support for enhanced programmer productivity
* Support for enhanced debugging, profiling, and exception/interrupt
* Optimization for low power/energy, code and data size, and best-effort
and real-time performance
* Parameterized and structural compiler design space exploration and

Tools for analysis, specification, design, and implementation, including:

* Hardware, system software, application software, and their interfaces
* Distributed real-time control, media players, and reconfigurable
* 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 behavior: energy, space, time
* Validation and verification, in particular of concurrent and distributed
* 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

Important Dates

1. Submission deadline: Friday, February 10, 2012.
2. Author notification: Friday, April 20, 2012.
3. Camera-ready papers: Tuesday, May 1, 2012.


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 via the LCTES 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:

1. author names and their affiliations must be omitted; and,
2. 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.

Accepted regular papers will be included in the conference proceedings and
will be published by ACM. There will also be poster and work-in-progress
presentations. The authors of the best papers of the conference will be
invited to submit an extended version to a special issue on LCTES of ACM
Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems. The best paper and the best
presentation will receive an award.
