CODES+ISSS 2009 : International Conference on Hardware-Software Codesign and System Synthesis
Call For Papers
Call for Paper
The IEEE/ACM/IFIP International Conference on Hardware-Software
Codesign and System Synthesis is one of the premier events in design
of embedded systems hardware, software, and tools. The conference
proudly continues the tradition of being a high-quality forum for active
discussion on current and innovative topics. The program will bring
together the latest in academic and industrial research and
development. High-quality original papers will be accepted for oral
presentation followed by interactive poster sessions. Selected papers
from the conference proceedings will be targeted for journal
Areas of Interest
The Conference invites papers on all aspects of the design and
architecture of embedded computing systems, from application specific
to heterogeneous systems, from custom to FPGA implementations, from
handheld to high-performance systems. Topics of interest include, but
are not limited to:
1) High-level, architectural and system-level synthesis
Synthesis algorithms and tools, integration and design flow, specification
and modeling, design representation, partitioning, estimation.
2) Hardware-software co-design
Co-design methodologies, interaction between architecture and software
design, HW/SW partitioning, design space exploration, HW/SW interface.
3) Specification languages and models
System-level models and semantics, requirements engineering, formal
properties, heterogeneous systems and components, design flow.
4) Simulation and verification
Hardware-software co-simulation, verification methodology, formal
verification, HW acceleration, test methodology, design for testability
5) Power-aware design methodology
Power and performance modeling, analysis and estimation techniques,
power management approaches, low-power design methodologies
6) Embedded systems architecture
