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 2013 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 systems:

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 autotuning

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

    Hardware, system software, application software, and their interfaces
    Distributed real-time control, media players, and reconfigurable architectures
    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 systems
    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

- Paper submission:         Friday, 8 February 2013; Anywhere on Earth
- Author notification:      Sunday, 31 March 2013
- Final version:            Thursday, 18 April 2013; 12:00noon EDT


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 at
Submissions must be in PDF, printable on US 
Letter and A4 sized paper. To enable double-blind reviewing, submissions must adhere to two rules:

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

There will also be poster and work-in-progress presentations. 

The best paper will receive an award.
