Call For Papers

DIPES 2008 - Call for Papers
IFIP Working Conference on Distributed and Parallel Embedded Systems
Milano, Italy
September 7th - 10th, 2008
hosted as part of the IFIP World Computer Congress


Conference Theme

Embedded systems build the key technological components of all kinds of
complex technical systems, ranging from telecommunications devices to
automobiles, aircraft and even complete production lines. Traditionally,
such embedded control systems have been implemented in a monolithic,
centralized manner, but distributed solutions have steadily been gaining
popularity. In a distributed setup, the control task is carried out by a
number of controllers distributed over the entire system and
interconnected as a network by communication components such as field
buses. The individual nodes of such a network usually consist of a
processor (microcontroller) together with some sensors and actuators.
More demanding local control applications require more powerful
controllers based on parallel architectures such as multiprocessor
systems-on-chips (MPSoCs) or VLIW. Distribution and parallelism in
embedded system design increase the engineering challenges and demand
new development methods and tools. Also, the increasing relevance of
intelligent applications like autonomous systems or systems with self-x
properties calls for new design methods and tools. Due to the growing
complexity of these kinds of embedded systems, their development
requires new, consistent and integrated design methodologies, covering
the path from specification to implementation.

DIPES will be an ideal opportunity to present exchange and discuss the
state of the art, novel ideas, actual research results, and future
trends in the field of distributed embedded systems. Contributors and
participants from both industry and academia are encouraged to take
active part in this conference.

Authors are invited to submit manuscripts of original unpublished
research work in all areas. Relevant topics include (but are not limited

1. Specification and modelling of complex embedded systems
2. Design methodology for distributed and parallel embedded systems
3. Design support for intelligent features in embedded systems
4. Validation and verification of embedded systems
5. Novel programming techniques for distributed real-time systems
6. Operating systems and middleware for distributed real-time systems
7. Self-x properties in distributed embedded systems
8. Partitioning and allocation of tasks
9. Distributed real-time operating systems
10. Real-time communication systems
11. Software synthesis for real-time applications
12. Mixed continuous/discrete systems
13. HW/SW co-design for distributed embedded systems
14. Specific (parallel) architectures for distributed embedded systems
15. Dependability and fault tolerance of distributed embedded systems
16. Low power design of embedded systems
17. Case studies of distributed embedded systems

Important dates

December 1st, 2007: Submissions due
February 20th, 2008: Notification of acceptance
March 20th, 2008: Final papers due

Paper Submission

You may submit full papers up to 10 pages or extended abstracts (3 - 5
pages) describing original work on the topics above or related ones via
the DIPES conference URL Extended abstracts
should provide a summary of the main results and some details to allow
the program committee to assess their merits and significance, including
references and comparisons. The contribution must be unpublished and not
submitted for publication elsewhere, including journals and the
proceedings of other symposia or workshops. One author of each accepted
paper has to present it at the conference. The proceedings will be
published by Springer Science and Business Media, the official IFIP
publisher. The final paper may be up to 10 pages in 11 point or larger
with a text area of 7" x 4.75". Further formatting guidelines can be
found at the publisher\222s website or at
the DIPES website.
