Dear Colleagues,

Please, consider to submit a paper for the Special Issue "Programming 
for Heterogeneous and Embedded Computing" in the Open Access journal 
Electronics (ISSN 2079-9292). Recently, its IF has increased to 2.412, 
ranking 125/266 (Q2) in 'Engineering, Electrical & Electronic' according 
to JCR report 2020.

Many computing platforms are currently combining different kinds of 
computing devices in the same system. They can include multicore CPUs 
with complex memory hierarchies, massive accelerators such as GPUs, 
specialized computing units for specific fields such as deep learning, 
or reconfigurable hardware devices such as FPGAs. These different types 
of devices are combined to build a range of systems from high-end 
supercomputers to embedded consumer-electronics systems.

Programming high-performance applications that exploit such parallel, 
complex, and heterogeneous machines is challenging; it frequently 
requires a mix of different programming models and languages and is 
plagued by architecture dependent decisions that compromise portability. 
New programming models and tools are being proposed. Nevertheless, there 
is still a long way to go to achieve simple, homogeneous, and productive 
programming environments for this diverse computing landscape. 
Contributions on all layers of programming and execution systems for 
heterogeneous computing are key to develop high-performance applications 
on modern and future computing platforms.

The aim of this Special Issue is to promote advancement in the following 

  * Heterogeneous programming, including multicore CPUs, accelerators,
    and/or domain specific architectures;
  * Parallel programming models and languages;
  * High-level system synthesis techniques;
  * High-performance compiling and code generation;
  * Run-time systems for heterogeneous platforms;
  * Parallel programming, debugging, and profiling tools;
  * Programming for resilience;
  * Code and performance portability;
  * Reconfigurable and embedded computing;
  * New programming and computing paradigms.

Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are 
invited. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be 
published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be 
listed together on the special issue website. Manuscripts can be 
submitted until the deadline: 31 January 2021.
