           Journal of Systems Architecture (JSA)
Special Issue on High-performance and Real-time Embedded Systems


Increasingly, time is a relevant concern which impacts in all application
areas and challenges ahead. Real-time requirements can be found in
applications ranging from large-scale data processing systems to deeply
embedded devices. Examples include safety-critical systems with
high-performance requirements, such as collision avoidance and autonomous
driving in avionics and automotive respectively, in which the correct
timing behaviour is of paramount importance; consumer systems, such as
video processing in TV sets and games; or real-time complex event
processing applications, such as online trading or real-time traffic
management. In all these applications, systems are expected to cope with
an increasing demand of functional and non-functional requirements, with
the corresponding increase in processing capabilities, paving the way for
high-performance architectures, of which multi-core and many-core systems
are becoming pervasive. The capabilities and challenges of parallelization
as a means to provide higher performance is a cross-cutting concern.


Deadline: 27th June 2014
Notification: 1st October 2014
Final Paper: 15th December 2014


The aim of this Special Issue is to highlight the challenges and show
research results and experiences of High-performance and Real-time
Embedded Systems. We encourage submissions of both research and experience
papers that in particular target some of the following or related topics:
* Runtimes and operating systems combining high-performance and
predictability requirements;
* Programming models and compiler support for providing real-time
capabilities to multi- and many-core architectures;
* Models and tools for code generation, system verification and validation;
* Worst-case execution time analysis, parallel/dag-based task models,
schedulability analysis of multi- and many-core systems;
* Heterogeneous multi-core embedded real-time architectures, many-core
* Time-predictable multi- and many-core processor architectures;
* Time-aware energy-efficiency.


All manuscripts and any supplementary material should be submitted via the
online submission and peer review systems at http://ees.elsevier.com/jsa.

Follow the submission instructions given on this site.

When submitting the paper, it is important that authors select
"High-performance and Real-time Embedded Systems" when they reach the
"Article Type" step in the submission process.

All manuscripts should comply with the journal's
