*Call for Paper*

Second ACM International Workshop on Manycore Embedded Systems (*MES*)

in conjunction with the 41st International symposium on Computer
Architecture (ISCA-2014)


*General Scope*

Many-core embedded systems (MES) are moving towards the integration of
hundreds of cores on a single chip and hold the promise of increasing
performance through parallelism. As the number of cores integrated into a
chip increases, the on-chip communication becomes a power and performance
bottleneck in future MESs. Networks-on-Chip (NoC) have has been proposed as
the most viable solution to meet the performance and design productivity
requirements of the complex on-chip communication infrastructure. NoCs
provide an infrastructure for better modularity, scalability,
fault-tolerance, and higher bandwidth compared to traditional
infrastructures. On the other hand, developing applications using the full
power of NoC-based MES requires software developers to transition from
writing serial programs to writing parallel programs. On top of that,
contemporary Operating Systems (OS) have been designed to run on a small
number of reliable cores and are not able to scale up to hundreds of cores.
Therefore, designing scalable and fault-tolerant OSs will be a tremendous
challenge in future MESs.

In addition, as neuromorphic and mixed-signal architectures are emerging as
an alternative solution beyond the conventional digital von Neumann
machines for complex applications, we would like to highlight such emerging
architectures in this workshop.

The goal of this workshop is to bring together the researchers from
academia and the experts from industry to present and discuss innovative
ideas and solutions in the design, modeling, prototyping, programming, and
implementation of MES. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

   - Networks-on-Chip
   - Brain-inspired Computing Architectures
   - Mapping of applications
   - (Embedded) OS
   - 3D Stacked Architectures
   - Reliability issues
   - Physical design
   - Synthesis, verification, debug & test
   - Performance and power issues
   - Reconfigurability aspects
   - FPGA implementation
   - Prallel programming model and scalable software
   - Compiler technologies
   - Many-core as accelerators
   - Heterogeneity challenges
   - Data-centers
   - Dynamic power management and energy harvesting

Submissions from EU projects in progress as well as seminal work in the
field are also encouraged. Submissions should not exceed 8 pages, including
tables and figures, and must be formatted in accordance to the ACM two
column style. Submission of a paper should be regarded as an undertaking
whereby, should the paper be accepted, at least one of the authors will
register for the conference and present the work.

*Proceeding and Special Issue:*

The accepted papers will be published in the *ACM Digital Library*.

Selected papers will be considered to appear in a special issue of *Elsevier's
Journal of Systems Architecture (JSA)*.

*Instruction for Paper Submissions:*

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on topics
related to many-core embedded systems. Submitted papers must not have been
published or simultaneously submitted elsewhere. Please submit a PDF copy
of your full manuscript, not to exceed 8 double-column ACM formatted pages,
and include up to 6 keywords and an abstract of no more than 400 words.
Papers must be formatted in accordance to the ACM two column style. ACM
Word or LaTeX style templates are available
In addition, Authors should apply ACM Computing
Classification<http://www.acm.org/about/class/1998> categories
and terms.

Submit a PDF copy of your full manuscript to the Workshop EasyChair link
