Special Issue on Languages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems

As the complexity of the application domains for the embedded systems increases, new research challenges are encountered for achieving desired level of performance goals (which could be diverse such as speed, real time constraints, code size, power, reliability, and scalability). Due to limited resources locally available, embedded systems are increasingly used in a networked (wired, wireless, as well as mobile) environment. In addition, advances in hardware reflect into solving issues using a combination of hardware and software techniques. The aim of this special issue is to provide present recent advances and the state-of-the-art in languages, compilers, and tools for embedded systems. Submissions are being solicited by the guest editors (see below) in areas relevant to this theme.

Examples of areas/topics of interest include

A selected number of top papers from LCTES'06 are invited by the guest editors. Authors of these papers are asked to extend their work for a TECS journal publication, which is then subjected to a second, rigorous review process. Notified authors of the top LCTES should submit their journal version at Manuscript Central adhering to the formatting instructions on the TECS Web page and indicate that you are submitting to the Special Issue on Languages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems.
