Conference Call for Papers


The 21st ACM SIGPLAN/SIGBED International Conference on Languages, Compilers, and

Tools for Embedded Systems (LCTES 2020)

June 16, 2020, London, United Kingdom (co-located with PLDI 2020)


Embedded system design faces many challenges both with respect to functional

requirements and nonfunctional requirements, many of which are conflicting. They

are found in areas such as design and developer productivity, verification,

validation, maintainability, and meeting performance goals and resource

constraints. Novel design-time and run-time approaches are needed to meet the

demand of emerging applications and to exploit new hardware paradigms, and in

particular to scale up to multicores (including GPUs and FPGAs) and distributed

systems built from multicores.

LCTES 2020 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.

LCTES 2020 accepts two types of submissions:

1. Full paper: 10 pages papers presenting original work.

2. Work-in-progress paper: 4 pages papers triggering interesting discussions.

Accepted papers in both categories will appear in the proceedings published by ACM.

This year LCTES is introducing a journal mode in addition to the usual conference

mode. ***All accepted full papers will be invited to be published in a special

issue of ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS)***

Important dates:

– Paper submission: Feb 28

– Author notification: Mar 30

– Camera-ready submission: April 26

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

limited to:

1. 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 size, and best-effort/real-time performance

– Parameterized and structural compiler design space exploration and auto-tuning

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

– Hardware, system software, application software, and their interfaces

– Distributed real-time control, media players, and reconfigurable architectures

– System integration and testing

– Performance estimation, monitoring, and tuning

– Run-time system support for embedded systems

– Design space exploration tools

– Support for system security and system-level reliability

– Approaches for cross-layer system optimization

3. Theory and foundations of embedded systems, including:

– Predictability of resource behavior: energy, space, time

– Validation and verification, in particular of concurrent and distributed systems

– Formal foundations of model-based design for code generation/analysis/verification

– Mathematical foundations for embedded systems

– Models of computations for embedded applications

4. Novel embedded architectures, including:

– Design and implementation of novel architectures

– Workload analysis and performance evaluation

– Architecture for new language features/virtualization/compilation/debugging tools

– Architectural features to improve power/energy, code/data size, and predictability

5. Mobile systems and IoT, including:

– Operating systems for mobile and IoT devices

– Compiler and software tools for mobile and IoT systems

– Energy management for mobile and IoT devices

– Memory and IO techniques for mobile and IoT devices

6. Empirical studies and their reproduction, and confirmation


– General Chair: Jingling Xue, University of New South Wales, Sydney

– Program Chair: Changhee Jung, Purdue University

– Publicity Chair: Dongyoon Lee, Stony Brook University
