Networked Embedded Systems (NES) find their ways into an increasing diversity of domestic and societal applications. Smart houses, next-general transportation systems, wireless multimedia sensor networks, ICT-enabled health systems, etc., all contain certain forms of parallel or distributed embedded sensors, controllers or computers in general. Originating from the resource limitation and time-to-market pressure, NES needs to be scalable in terms of physical overhead, energy efficiency and design effort. Scalability can also be considered from the application’s point of view- to obtain deployment services for distributed applications regardless of the platform, and the platform’s point of view- to provide mechanisms for adding and removing any networked computational resources at run time. In addition to scalability, since processing, communication and control components may all potentially be integrated, research efforts are needed on the specification, modeling and characterization, partitioning, architecture and design flow for such heterogeneous computing platforms.

This issue calls for novel contributions to address the scalable design and/or heterogeneous computing in networked embedded systems. All forms of NES are relevant, including but not limited to, wireless sensor network, distributed control systems, massive parallel on-chip computing, Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS), or any hybrid or potential NES architectures. Both software and hardware design layers are of interest- application design, operating system, middleware, hardware, etc. Application case studies or commercial systems are very welcome.
