Embedded Systems:

Across Hardware and Software


Submission deadline extended to September 7th, 2011

For the 10th year, ACM SAC hosts a special Track on Embedded Systems (EMBS).

This year, the EMBS track will be part of a joint effort within ACM SAC to group up topics involving computing systems as a whole, i.e. taking into account the different components at the hardware and software levels that build up actual devices. In addition to EMBS, also the track on Operating Systems (OS) will be involved: In ACM SAC, sessions for these two tracks will be scheduled to let attendees follow all presentations on such closely related topics.

The focus of the EMBS track is on the application of both novel and well-known techniques to the embedded systems development. Particular attention is paid to solutions that require expertise in different fields (e.g. computer architecture, OS, compilers, security, software engineering, simulation).

The track will benefit also from direct experiences in the employment of embedded devices in “unconventional” application areas, so to show up new challenges in the system design/development process.

In this setting, researchers and practitioners from academia and industry will get a chance to keep in touch with problems, open issues and future directions in the field of development of dedicated applications for embedded systems.
