Special Issue Call for Papers:

The ever-increasing global demand for computing power and improved performance drives the embedded systems towards multi-core systems. This is because of the reason that multi-core and many-core systems are formulating itself as a most significant choice of the solution across the electronics and communication sectors. However, its implementations are still at infancy and posses numerous research gaps. Some of the most critical challenges include risk associated with migrating legacy software to work with multi-core systems; what are the better technologies that can be used? Will the incorporation of virtual techniques can enhance the performance? Will it be cost-efficient and reliable?. Finding the answer to these questions can probably help the research community leverage the most powerful high-performance multi-core solutions that extensively offer advanced tools and techniques.

Presently, computing networks are moving towards a new era of digital computing. However, the progress towards global network connectivity increases the need for higher computing power and makes the existing solutions to be inappropriate. Already, the high-end system applications such as networking and wireless infrastructure platforms have started to adopt multi-core and many-core solutions. As a matter of fact, it is often impossible for a single-threaded performance to offer consistent services without the integration of geometrically increasing power. This instance can potentially increase the system cost with reduced reliability measures. Thus, in order to retain the power at a controllable level, it has become a necessity for today’s applications to go for multi-core and many-core systems as an alternative to continually increasing frequency rate. Recent multi-core and many-core processors offer various levels of parallelism via numerous range of architectures for data-parallel execution. Hence, implementing multi-level parallelism has become a critical requirement for the current and future processors to cope with increasing demand. In this context, this special issue aims to bring-out the advances in multi-core and many-core systems for future generation computing systems. It offers a forum for researchers and industrial professionals to share their novel and innovative ideas against this background.

The chair Hardware-Oriented Technical Computer Science researches new architectural concepts for the realization of runtime-adaptive, performance- and energy efficient digital systems. Both dedicated hardware accelerators in the basis of dynamical reconfigurable FPGAs and combined hardware/software systems are considered. Applications from embedded systems and high performance computing are of interest, since their contradicting requirements on energy efficiency, flexibility, performance, and size prohibit a realization with traditional hardware- and software solutions. Of special interest are database systems, sensor fusion in medical context, and electronic image correction.
