                       Call for Papers - SAMOS XVIII
          International Conference on Embedded Computer Systems:
          Architectures, Modeling, and Simulation (SAMOS XVII)
                    Samos, Greece, July 15-19, 2018



SAMOS is a unique conference. It deals with embedded systems (sort of)
but that is not what makes it different. It brings together every year
researchers from both academia and industry on the quiet and inspiring
northern mountainside of the Mediterranean island of Samos,  which  in
itself  is  different.  But  more  importantly,  it   really   fosters
collaboration rather than competition. Formal and intensive  technical
sessions are only held in the mornings. A lively panel ends the formal
part of the day, and leads nicely into the afternoons  and evenings --
reserved for informal discussions, good food, and the  inviting Aegean
Sea. SAMOS  has  ACM  ICPS technical  co-sponsorship.  The  conference
papers will be  submitted  for inclusion in the  ACM  digital  library
and  DBLP Database. Authors  are invited to submit technical papers in
accordance to the author's  instructions describing original work.
The length of the papers is  limited to 10  pages,  use the two-column
ACM conference proceedings format. Submissions with 2  or  more  pages
are possible for Special Session 1 (‘Negative results matter too!’).
See author's guidelines for more information on how to properly prepare
the manuscript.


The   conference  keynotes  are  given  by  leaders  in   the   field.
This year's keynotes will be given by LUIGI CARRO, Universidade Federal
do Rio Grande do Sul (BZ), TULIKA MITRA, National University of
Singapore (SG), and PETER HOFSTEE, IBM Austin Research Laboratory (US).

Technical submissions are  invited  on  original  work  in  one of the
following tracks:

** The Applications, Systems, Architectures, and Processors Track **

This track focuses on  advances in systems efficiency in various domains.
We seek original  contributions describing new architectural  and  micro
architectural techniques  aiming to improve performance (e.g. processing
throughput  or  real-time    latency),   energy  and  power  efficiency,
reliability and dependability of  embedded systems.   We  solicit  novel
architectures and computing methodologies and solutions for accelerating
applications in various embedded domains  such as next  generation  life
sciences and  medicine,  next generation  automotive and  avionics, next
generation learning systems for surveillance and  recognition, immersive
virtual reality. Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

* Novel Architectures for Accelerators in High Performance Embedded
* Application-specific   and  Domain-specific   Embedded   Heterogeneous
   Multicore Systems;
* Embedded Reconfigurable Processors;
* Software tools, Compilation techniques  and  optimizations,  and  Code
   generation for Reconfigurable Architectures;
* Architecture synthesis from Functional Languages Descriptions;
* Virtualization and Energy-aware Secure, Reliable, and High
   Availability Multi-core Architectures;
* Embedded Parallel Systems and Multiprocessor Systems-On-Chip;
* Application level Resource Management of Multi-core Architectures;
* Memory Management and Smart Caches for big data;
* Network-on-Chip, Software Defined Network-on-Chips.

** The Modeling, Design, and Design Space Exploration Track**

This track focuses on all design processes for embedded systems ranging
from   system-level   specification,  design  languages,  modeling  and
simulation, performance, power, reliability and thermal estimation  and
analysis, hardware/software  and  system synthesis,  design and  design
space exploration methodologies down to hardware and software synthesis
and compilation  strategies.  Topics  of  interest include (but are not
limited to):

* Hardware/Software and Algorithm/Architecture Co-design;
* Design Space Exploration Strategies, Algorithms and CAD Tools;
* Specification Languages and Models;
* System-Level Design, Simulation, and Verification;
* Hardware, Software and System Synthesis Techniques and CAD Tools;
* MP-SoC and Platform Based Design Methodologies;
* MP-SoC Programming, Compilers, Simulation and Mapping Technologies;
* Profiling, Measurement and Analysis Techniques and CAD Tools;
* (Design for) System Adaptivity;
* Testing and Debugging;
* Machine learning, neural networks, and artificial intelligence.


SPECIAL SESSION 1: 'Negative results matter too!' organized by Karol
Desnos (IETR, France) and Shuvra Bhattacharyya (University of Maryland,
USA, and Tampere University of Technology, Finland). Submissions with 2
or  more  pages are possible. Submission Deadline: APRIL 2, 2018

SPECIAL SESSION 2: 'Virtual Prototyping of Parallel and Embedded Systems’
organized by Michael Huebner (Ruhr-University Bochum , DE) and Diana
Goehringer (TU Dresden , DE). Submission Deadline: APRIL 2, 2018


SAMOS will provide 10 travel grants to authors and participants, who are
students from Greece, Cyprus, Italy, Portugal, and Spain and, in general,
to people with limited support from their organizations.
