SAMOS Workshop: Call for Papers (PDF)

The SAMOS 2008 Workshop has announced two special sessions

SAMOS Workshop - International Workshop on Systems, Architectures, Modeling, and Simulation:

The workshop considers state-of-the-art research papers as well as papers on ongoing work with promising preliminary results. Positional and in-depth review papers are also considered. Furthermore, the workshop covers additional topics compared to IC-SAMOS that are complementary to processing and necessary to build embedded systems, e.g., sensor systems. The workshop proceedings will be published by Springer Verlag in the LNCS series.

SAMOS Workshop topics of interest are (but not limited to):

  • System-Level Design, Simulation, and Verification
  • Multimedia and Graphics Architectures
  • Embedded Software
  • Hardware/Software Co-design
  • Design Space Exploration
  • Profiling, Measurement, and Analysis Techniques for Embedded Systems
  • Embedded System Integration and Testing
  • Energy-Aware and Low-Power Processors
  • Novel Architectures and Micro-architectures for Embedded Systems
  • Application Specifications and Modeling for Embedded Systems
  • Processor Simulation Technologies
  • Compilers and Mapping Technologies
  • Computer Aided Design
  • Component-based Design and Analysis
  • Physical Design
  • Application-specific Systems (e.g., automotive)
  • Implantable Systems
  • Specification Languages and Models
  • Applications of Embedded Systems
  • Network-on-Chip Platforms
  • Multi-Processor Systems-on-Chip
  • Programming models for multi-processor embedded systems
  • Embedded Parallel Systems
  • Sensor Networks
  • Networked Embedded Systems and Security
  • Embedded System-on-a-Chip Implementations
  • Multi-threaded Processors
  • High-Level, Architectural, and System Level Synthesis
  • Software Defined Radios
  • Digital Signal Processors
  • Performance Analysis of Embedded Systems
  • Embedded Operating Systems
  • Real-time Embedded Systems
  • Memory Management, Smart Caches, and Compiler Controlled Memories
  • Sensor Systems
  • Embedded Reconfigurable Processors
  • Reliable and Trustworthy Embedded Systems

Within the SAMOS 2008 Workshop, two special sessions will be organized on:

  • System Level Design for Heterogeneous Signal Processing Systems - focusing on additional topics related to areas of system level modeling, rapid implementation and design space exploration of heterogeneous DSP systems, and dataflow modeling principles.
  • Programming multi- and many-cores - focusing on programming models for the next generation of MPSoC and in specific on the possibilities of developing programming models, languages and compilers to enable a paradigm shift in this area.
