Embedded software must meet demanding criteria for correctness, performance, power consumption, and development cost. EMSOFT aims at covering all aspects of embedded software with a focus on the principles of embedded software development.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

  • Design and implementation of embedded software
  • Modeling and validation
  • Model- and component-based software design and analysis
  • Programming languages and compilers
  • Software engineering and programming methodologies
  • Scheduling and execution time analysis
  • Operating systems and middleware
  • QoS management and performance analysis
  • Hardware-dependent software and interfaces
  • Distributed, networked embedded systems and security
  • Software frameworks for cyber-physical systems
  • Embedded control and communication
  • Software for multiprocessor/multicore embedded systems and systems-on-chip
  • Application areas, e.g., automotive, avionics, energy, health care, mobile devices, multimedia

Submissions and selection

We invite submissions related to the topics outlined above. Submissions from the industry are welcome. Submissions of already published material or concurrent submissions to other conferences with proceedings is not allowed. Submissions will be evaluated according to multiple criteria, including originality, relevance and readability. The review process will include a feedback/rebuttal period where authors will have the option to respond to reviewer comments. Selected papers will be presented at the conference and will be included in the Proceedings published by the Association for Computing Machinery. An ACM SIGBED EMSOFT Best Paper Award will be given.
