Embedded Systems:

Advances along the Hardware/Software Borderline

The special track on Embedded Systems (EMBS) at ACM SAC has come to its 11th edition.

Following the experience of the last year, the EMBS track will take part in a coordination effort with the track on Operating Systems (OS): In ACM SAC, sessions for these two tracks will be scheduled to let attendees follow all presentations on such closely related topics.

The focus of the EMBS track is on the application of both novel and well-known techniques to the embedded systems development. Particular attention is paid to solutions that require expertise in different fields (e.g. computer architecture, OS, compilers, security, software engineering, simulation).

The track will benefit also from direct experiences in the employment of embedded devices in “unconventional” application areas, so to show up new challenges in the system design/development process.

In this setting, researchers and practitioners from academia and industry will get a chance to keep in touch with problems, open issues and future directions in the field of development of dedicated applications for embedded systems.

For the first time, ACM SAC hosts "Student Research Abstracts," to let graduate students present their in-progress research and receive feedback from the scientific community. Please refer to the CFP for further details.
