Languages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems

(in conjunction with PLDI’06)

Ottawa, June 14-16, 2006


Call For Papers: Special Issue on Languages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems

As the complexity of embedded systems increases, new research challenges are encountered for achieving the desired performance goals, such as speed, timing constraints, size, energy, power, time to market, reliability, security, and scalability. Furthermore, embedded systems are increasingly used in networked (wired, wireless, as well as mobile) environments and advances in hardware motivate the use of a combination of hardware and software techniques to build them. The aim of LCTES is to provide a forum for discussing the latest research related to the above trends and to allow researchers and developers working on different aspects to get together and interact.

Call for papers


Special Issue on Languages, Compilers, and Tools for Embedded Systems

Important dates

Topics of interest

Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following aspects of embedded systems design.


Prospective authors must submit their anonymous papers electronically via this web site. Papers must be formatted according the ACM proceedings format and should be no longer than 10 pages in this format. Templates for ACM format are available for Word Perfect, Microsoft Word and Latex and are located at

Submissions should be in PDF and printable on US Letter and A4 sized paper. Authors of accepted papers must sign a copyright release form. The best papers may be considered for publication in ACM TECS as extended versions.

Papers must describe unpublished work. The program chair will automatically reject papers that exceed the length requirement, that are submitted late, that are found to have been previously published, or that are currently in submission elsewhere.

Student Poster Session

This session provides an opportunity for graduate and undergraduate students attending LCTES'06 to present and discuss their research. This one hour event will feature concurrent short presentations by student participants organized in poster formats. Click here for more information. Submission deadline is moved to May 12, 2006.


The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the LCTES audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, relevance, correctness, and clarity. The paper must be organized so that it is easily understood by an audience with varied expertise. The paper should clearly identify what has been accomplished, why it is significant to embedded systems design, and how it compares with previous work.
