ACM SIGPLAN/SIGBED Conference on Languages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems

Embedded system design faces many challenges both with respect to functional requirements and nonfunctional requirements. The challenges are in the design process, developer productivity, verification, validation, maintainability, and meeting performance goals and resource constraints of the embedded system. Novel design-time and run-time approaches are needed to meet the demand of emerging applications and to exploit new hardware paradigms, including scaling up to multicores, in-memory computing, involving accelerators in the computing mix, and even distributed systems built using multi-cores.
