ESA 2009 - The 2009 International Conference on Embedded Systems and Applications is a premium forum for the researchers, students and other professionals related to this sector. It will give a wonderful chance to talk on new developments and exchange their experiences, innovative ideas and research results on the allied field.
ESA 2009 will discuss on the following topics:
- Real-time systems: all real-time related aspects such as software, distributed real-time systems, task scheduling, multitasking design, real-time kernels, real-time OS
- Embedded system architecture: multiprocessors, memory management support, communication, protocols, reconfigurable platforms, network-on-chip, real-time systems, embedded microcontrollers
- Embedded computing education: curriculum issues, teaching tools and methods.
- Embedded hardware support: system-on-a-chip, DSPs, hardware specification, modeling, synthesis, simulation and analysis at all levels for low power, power-aware, testable, reliable, validation, real-time behavior, verifiable systems, performance modeling, security issues, safety critical systems
- Testing techniques: all aspects of testing including design-for-test, embedded test, test synthesis, built-in self-test for embedded and system-on-a-chip systems.
- Hardware/software co-design: methodologies, test and debug strategies, real-time systems, partitioning, estimation, design representation, specification and modeling synthesis, design space exploration beyond traditional hardware/software boundary and algorithms
- Embedded software: compilers, assemblers and cross assemblers, programming, virtual machines, memory management, object-oriented aspects, scheduling, concurrent software for SoCs, OS and middleware support, distributed/resource aware OS
- Emerging new topics: new challenges for next generation embedded computing systems, new applications (e.g., pervasive or ubiquitous computing, embedded internet tools), arising from new technologies (e.g., nanotechnology), new principle (e.g., embedded Engineering)
- Industrial practices and benchmark suites: system design, processor design, software, tools, case studies, trends, experience maintaining benchmark suites, emerging technologies, representation, interchange format, tools, copyrights, maintenance, metrics
- Application-specific processors and devices: network processors, low power embedded processors, bio/fluidic processors, application specific hardware accelerators, real-time processor, media and signal processors, reconfigurable processors, bluetooth, hand-held devices, flash memory chips
