Programming languages, compilers, and tools are important interfaces 
between embedded systems and emerging applications in the real world. 
Embedded systems are aggressively adapted for deep neural network 
applications, autonomous vehicles, robots, healthcare applications, etc. 
However, these emerging applications impose challenges that conflict 
with conventional design requirements and increase the complexity of 
embedded system designs. Furthermore, they exploit new hardware 
paradigms to scale up multicores (including GPUs and FPGAs) and 
distributed systems built from many cores. Therefore, programming 
languages, compilers, and tools are becoming more important to address 
these issues, such as productivity, validation, verification, 
maintainability, safety, and reliability for meeting both performance 
goals and resource constraints.

The 24th ACM SIGPLAN/SIGBED International Conference on Languages, 
Compilers, Tools and Theory of Embedded Systems (LCTES 2023) solicits 
papers presenting original work on programming languages, compilers, 
tools, theory, and architectures that help in overcoming these 
challenges. Research papers on innovative techniques are welcome, as 
well as experience papers on insights obtained by experimenting with 
real-world systems and applications. Papers can be submitted to 

Important Dates

* Paper submission deadline: March 24, 2023 (extended firm deadline)

* Paper notification: April 24, 2023

* Artifact submission deadline: May 1, 2023

* Artifact decision: May 12, 2023

* Camera-ready deadline: May 15, 2023

* Conference: June 18, 2023

Paper Categories

* Full paper: 10 pages presenting original work.

* Work-in-progress paper: 4 pages papers presenting original ideas that 
are likely to trigger interesting discussions.

Accepted papers in both categories will appear in the proceedings 
published by ACM. In addition, this year’s LCTES introduces two journal 

* All accepted full papers will be invited to be published in a special 
issue of the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS). A 
TECS publication will require substantial additional material over the 
conference publication and will undergo a separate review process.

* Rejected full papers may have the option to submit their work to the 
IEEE Embedded Systems Letters (ESL; 4 pages). IEEE ESL submissions will 
undergo a separate review process.

including, but not limited to:

Authors take note

The official publication date is the date the proceedings are made 
available in the ACM Digital Library. This date may be up to two weeks 
prior to the first day of your conference. The official publication date 
affects the deadline for any patent filings related to published work.
