*About LCTES*
LCTES provides a link between the programming languages and embedded
systems engineering communities. Researchers and developers in these areas
are addressing many similar problems, but with different backgrounds and
approaches. LCTES is intended to expose researchers and developers from
either area to relevant work and interesting problems in the other area and
provide a forum where they can interact.

LCTES 2014 is co-located with PLDI 2014, in *Edinburgh, UK, June 12 -- 13,
2014*. This will be the fifteenth conference in the LCTES series.

*Call for Papers*
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 2014 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.

Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics in
embedded systems:

Programming language challenges, including:

   - Domain-specific languages
   - Features to exploit multicore, reconfigurable, and other emerging
   - Features for distributed, adaptive, and real-time control embedded
   - Language capabilities for specification, composition, and construction
   of embedded systems
   - Language features and techniques to enhance reliability,
   verifiability, and security
   - Virtual machines, concurrency, inter-processor synchronization, and
   memory management

Compiler challenges, including:

   - Interaction between embedded architectures, operating systems, and
   - Interpreters, binary translation, just-in-time compilation, and split
   - Support for enhanced programmer productivity
   - Support for enhanced debugging, profiling, and exception/interrupt
   - Optimization for low power/energy, code and data size, and best-effort
   and real-time performance
   - Parameterized and structural compiler design space exploration and

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

   - Hardware, system software, application software, and their interfaces
   - Distributed real-time control, media players, and reconfigurable
   - 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

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 as basis for code generation,
   analysis, and verification
   - Mathematical foundations for embedded systems
   - Models of computations for embedded applications

Novel embedded architectures, including:

   - Design and implementation of novel architectures
   - Workload analysis and performance evaluation
   - Architecture support for new language features, virtualization,
   compiler techniques, debugging tools

Important Dates

- Paper submission:      *Friday, January 31, 2014*
- Author notification:      Friday, March 14, 2014


Submissions must be in ACM proceedings format, 9-point type, and may not
exceed 10 pages (all inclusive).
Word and LaTeX templates for this format are available at
Submissions must be in PDF, printable on US
Letter and A4 sized paper. To enable double-blind reviewing, submissions
must adhere to two rules:

    author names and their affiliations must be omitted; and,
    references to related work by the authors should be in the third person
(e.g., not "We build on our previous work ..." but rather "We build on the
work of ...").

 However, nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the
submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult (e.g.,
important background references should not be omitted or anonymized).
Papers must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for
publication elsewhere as discussed here:
Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright

Very Best Regards,

Lei Jiang
