Location: Samos, Greece

SAMOS is a unique conference. It deals with embedded systems (sort of) but that is not what makes it different. It brings together every year researchers from both academia and industry on the quiet and inspiring northern mountainside of the Mediterranean island of Samos, which in itself is different. But more importantly, it really fosters collaboration rather than competition. Formal and intensive technical sessions are only held in the mornings. A lively panel or distinguished keynote speaker ends the formal part of the day, and leads nicely into the afternoons and evenings — reserved for informal discussions, good food, and the inviting Aegean Sea.

Conference Tracks

The SAMOS con­fer­ence seeks paper con­tri­bu­tions in two main areas:

The Ap­pli­ca­tions, Sys­tems, Ar­chi­tec­tures, and Proces­sors

This topic area fo­cuses on ad­vances in sys­tems ef­fi­ciency in var­i­ous do­mains. We seek orig­i­nal con­tri­bu­tions de­scrib­ing new ar­chi­tec­tural and micro ar­chi­tec­tural tech­niques aim­ing to im­prove per­for­mance (e.g. pro­cess­ing through­put or real-time la­tency), en­ergy and power ef­fi­ciency, re­li­a­bil­ity and de­pend­abil­ity of em­bed­ded sys­tems. We so­licit novel ar­chi­tec­tures and com­put­ing method­olo­gies and so­lu­tions for ac­cel­er­at­ing ap­pli­ca­tions in var­i­ous em­bed­ded do­mains such as next gen­er­a­tion life sci­ences and med­i­cine, next gen­er­a­tion au­to­mo­tive and avion­ics, next gen­er­a­tion (ma­chine) learn­ing sys­tems for sur­veil­lance and recog­ni­tion, im­mer­sive vir­tual re­al­ity. Top­ics of in­ter­est in­clude (but are not lim­ited to):

  • Novel Ar­chi­tec­tures for Ac­cel­er­a­tors in High Per­for­mance Em­bed­ded Sys­tems;
  • Ap­pli­ca­tion-spe­cific and Do­main-spe­cific Em­bed­ded Het­ero­ge­neous Mul­ti­core Sys­tems;
  • Em­bed­ded Re­con­fig­urable Proces­sors;
  • Soft­ware tools, Com­pi­la­tion tech­niques and op­ti­miza­tions, and Code gen­er­a­tion for Re­con­fig­urable Ar­chi­tec­tures;
  • Ar­chi­tec­ture syn­the­sis from Func­tional Lan­guages De­scrip­tions;
  • Vir­tu­al­iza­tion and En­ergy-aware Se­cure, Re­li­able, and High Avail­abil­ity Multi-core Ar­chi­tec­tures;
  • Em­bed­ded Par­al­lel Sys­tems and Mul­ti­proces­sor Sys­tems-On-Chip;
  • Ap­pli­ca­tion level Re­source Man­age­ment of Multi-core Ar­chi­tec­tures;
  • Mem­ory  Sys­tems and Man­age­ment for big data;
  • In-/near-mem­ory pro­cess­ing;
  • Net­work-on-Chip, Soft­ware De­fined Net­work-on-Chips.

The Mod­el­ing, De­sign, and De­sign Space Ex­plo­ration

This topic area fo­cuses on all de­sign processes for em­bed­ded sys­tems rang­ing from sys­tem-level spec­i­fi­ca­tion, de­sign lan­guages, mod­el­ing and sim­u­la­tion, per­for­mance, power, re­li­a­bil­ity and ther­mal es­ti­ma­tion and analy­sis, hard­ware/soft­ware and sys­tem syn­the­sis, de­sign and de­sign space ex­plo­ration method­olo­gies down to hard­ware and soft­ware syn­the­sis and com­pi­la­tion strate­gies. Top­ics of in­ter­est in­clude (but are not lim­ited to):

  • Hard­ware/Soft­ware and Al­go­rithm/Ar­chi­tec­ture Co-de­sign;
  • De­sign Space Ex­plo­ration Strate­gies, Al­go­rithms and CAD Tools;
  • Spec­i­fi­ca­tion Lan­guages and Mod­els;
  • Sys­tem-Level De­sign, Sim­u­la­tion, and Ver­i­fi­ca­tion;
  • Hard­ware, Soft­ware and Sys­tem Syn­the­sis Tech­niques and CAD Tools;
  • MP-SoC and Plat­form Based De­sign Method­olo­gies;
  • MP-SoC Pro­gram­ming, Com­pil­ers, Sim­u­la­tion and Map­ping Tech­nolo­gies;
  • Pro­fil­ing, Mea­sure­ment and Analy­sis Tech­niques and CAD Tools;
  • (De­sign for) Sys­tem Adap­tiv­ity;
  • Test­ing and De­bug­ging.
