Special Issue Call for Papers:

Adaptive systems find application in a plethora of scenarios and, recently, with the rise of Cyber-Physical Systems, have gained more attention in the research community. Generally, these systems have a reconfigurable nature since they are designed to cope with external (environmental) and internal changes at run-time, for example, by adjusting their behavior and architecture.

Embedding such systems in devices constrained in terms of energy consumption and computational capabilities requires additional design efforts, especially when these devices have to be deployed in real-time environments or scalability is a requirement.

This Special Issue aims at spreading new and on-going research exploring emerging approaches and techniques that address the challenges of the design of energy-efficient, adaptive, and reconfigurable embedded systems and SoCs.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Self-aware adaptation in FPGA-based systems
  • FPGAs and reconfigurable hardware accelerators
  • FPGA architectures for distributed adaptive computing systems
  • FPGA-based adaptive architectures for correlated multi-stream processing
  • Low power design of reconfigurable SoCs / MPSoCs
  • Adaptive computing for inter-process communication in FPGA architectures
  • On-chip and multi-chip interconnection systems
  • Adaptive real-time embedded processors
  • Novel reconfigurable architectures for real-time applications
  • Performance modelling of emerging high performance computing architectures
  • Machine learning techniques in adaptive computing architectures
  • Adaptive computing in middleware and virtual machines in embedded architectures
  • Approximate computing in FPGAs
  • Verification and evaluation techniques of the aforementioned topics
  • Industrial case studies regarding the aforementioned topics
