CASES is a forum where researchers, developers and practitioners
exchange information on emerging technologies and the latest advances
in compilers and architectures for high performance embedded systems
design and synthesis. CASES uniquely aims to promote synergies across
otherwise vertically integrated communities in embedded systems.
CASES seeks original research papers that focus on increasing the
efficiency and capabilities of embedded systems via creative approaches
that combine compiler, architecture, and synthesis technologies. Such
solutions must address the challenges of bringing embedded systems to
the market place, including but not limited to new capabilities, faster time-to-market, lower
costs, improvements in power consumption, and improvements in real-time behavior.
CASES 2012 is part of Embedded Systems Week,
and will be held October 7-12 in Tampere, Finland.
Program Chairs: Vincent Mooney
(Georgia Institute of Technology), and Rodric Rabbah (IBM Research).
Areas of Interest
Previously unpublished papers containing significant novel ideas and
technical results are solicited. Conference topics include, but are
not limited to, the following:
- models of computation and compilers for heterogeneous systems including GPUs and FPGAs
- heterogeneous system-on-chip
- on-chip communication architectures
- extensible, customizable ASIPs
- run-time and design time reconfigurable processors
- novel nano-based architectures
- 3D architectures, integration and synthesis
- domain specific embedded applications
- memory management
- smart caches and compiler controlled memories
- static and dynamic timing analysis
- specification and design of embedded systems
- compilation and/or synthesis for reliability, power, performance
- modeling & management for reliability, power, performance
- validation, verification, & debugging of embedded software
- analysis techniques for embedded system including design space exploration, co-simulation
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 here.
Submissions must be in PDF, printable on US Letter 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 ...").
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
of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright
If you have questions about the logistics for the double-blind
reviewing process, please contact the program chairs or look at this
useful FAQ page authored by Michael Hicks.
Submissions not adhering to these guidelines may be summarily rejected at the
discretion of the chairs.
Papers must be submitted electronically through
the CASES 2012 submission site (not yet online). Please note that, as part of your
submission, you will be asked to enter a short abstract of 150 words
that will help reviewers decide if they want to review your
paper. The abstract in the paper itself may be longer than 150
The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as
its general accessibility to the CASES audience. Papers will be judged
on significance, originality, and clarity. The paper must be
organized so that it is easily understood by an audience with varied
expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been
accomplished, why it is significant, and how it relates to previous
work. As in the past, the program committee may elect to accept some
papers for poster and/or short paper sessions.
