Call for Paper

Fourth ACM International Workshop on Many-core Embedded Systems (MES)

in conjunction with the 43rd International symposium on Computer
Architecture (ISCA-2016)

June 19, 2016, Seoul, Korea



Accepted papers will be published in the ACM Digital Library

Special Issue: Elsevier's Microprocessors and Microsystems Journal (MICPRO)



(Deadline: Extended to April 14th)

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. On-chip network 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 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. 
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. In addition, we would like to emphasize on
energy efficient (real-time) data processing in the realm of Big data and
IoT applications through MESs. 
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/Systems-on-Chip
*	Neuromorphic Architectures
*	Applications mapping
*	(Embedded) OS
*	Real-time and mixed-criticality
*	3D Stacked Architectures
*	Reliability issues
*	Physical design
*	Synthesis, verification, debug & test
*	Performance and power issues
*	Reconfigurability aspects
*	FPGA implementation
*	Parallel programming models and scalable software
*	Compiler technologies
*	Many-core as accelerators
*	Heterogeneity challenges
*	Big data and IoT applications
*	Data-centers and supercomputers
*	Dynamic power management and energy harvesting

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 for the special issue of Elsevier's
Microprocessors and Microsystems (confirmed). 


Instruction for Paper Submissions:

You are invited to submit original and unpublished research works on topics
