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
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.
