Call For Papers
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.

LCTES 2022 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 through HotCRP.

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.

LCTES 2022 provides a journal mode in addition to the usual conference mode. Accepted full papers will be selectively invited to be published in a special issue of the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS).

Original contributions are solicited on the topics of interest including, but not limited to:

    Language features and techniques to enhance reliability, verifiability, and security
    Virtual machines, concurrency, inter-processor synchronization, and memory management

Compiler challenges, including:

    Interaction between embedded architectures, operating systems, and compilers
    Interpreters, binary translation, just-in-time compilation, and split compilation
    Support for enhanced programmer productivity
    Support for enhanced debugging, profiling, and exception/interrupt handling
    Optimization for low power/energy, code/data size, and real-time performance
    Parameterized and structural compiler design space exploration and auto-tuning

Tools for analysis, specification, design, and implementation, including:
