In the last decades, a significant boost in many-core embedded systems
performance has occurred thanks to rapid technology scaling and
increasing exploitation of parallel processing architectures. With
increasing number of cores integrated on a chip, on-chip communication
is becoming the power and performance bottleneck in current and future
many-core Systems-on-a-Chip (SoCs). A variety of on-chip
interconnects, such as dedicated buses, Network-on-Chip (NoC), hybrid
bus-NoC, etc., have been proposed to meet the performance and design
productivity requirements of the complex on-chip communication
infrastructure. The trend to merge multiple functions on a single chip
poses significant challenges to the design and integration of such
systems. Energy efficiency is obviously very important for the
multitude of edge devices used in the emerging Internet-of-Things
(IoT) era. This Special Issue focuses on energy-efficient many-core
embedded systems and architectures. The topics of interest include,
but not limited to:

Energy-efficient reconfigurable many-core architectures Novel
many-core architectures for low power embedded systems Low-power
many-core architectures for digital signal processing NoC
architectures and applications NoC interconnection simulators and
emulators NoC support for memory and cache access NoC design and
simulation methodologies and tools NoC for FPGA and structured ASIC
Heterogeneous multicore programming for low power many-core
architectures Neuromorphic architectures Authors of papers presented
at NoCArc 2018, the 11th ACM/IEEE International Workshop on Network on
Chip Architectures, are invited to submit extended journal version of
their papers to the SI. Other authors may also submit original
manuscripts that fit within the scope of the SI.


General information for submitting papers to JSA can be found at
(please note the “Guide for Authors” link). Submissions to this
Special Issue (SI) should be made using Elsevier’s editorial system at
the journal website (https://www.evise.com/profile/api/navigate/JSA),
under the "Submit Your Paper" link). Please select the “SI:NoCArc18”
option as the type of the paper during the submission process.

JSA has adopted the Virtual Special Issues model to speed up the
publication process, where an SI paper is published in a regular issue
as soon as it is accepted. Therefore, authors are encouraged to submit
papers early, and need not wait until the submission deadline.


* Submission of manuscripts: 30 January 2019
* Notification to authors: 30 March 2019
* Final versions due: 30 June 2019
