About Embedded Systems Week (ESWEEK)


Embedded Systems Week (ESWEEK) is the premier event covering all

aspects of hardware and software design for smart, intelligent and

connected computing systems. By bringing together three leading

conferences (CASES, CODES+ISSS, EMSOFT), one symposium (NOCS), and

several workshops and tutorials, ESWEEK allows attendees to benefit

from a wide range of topics covering the state of the art in embedded

systems research and development.




Registered attendees can attend sessions in any of the ESWEEK

conferences (CASES, CODES+ISSS, EMSOFT). Please note that tutorials,

symposium (NOCS), and workshops may require separate registration.

Paper Process


ESWEEK 2020 continues a dual publication model comprising the Journal

track and the Work-in-Progress (WiP) track. Journal track papers, which

are full-length papers describing mature work, will be published in the

IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design of Integrated Circuits and

Systems (TCAD). The WiP track papers, which are short (2-page) papers

representing not-yet-mature but promising research, will be published in

the ESWEEK proceedings and will be listed as regular publications within

the IEEE and/or ACM digital libraries. Authors of WiP papers have the

opportunity to publish the extended form of their work in any conference

or journal they prefer. Journal and WiP papers are mutually exclusive,

i.e., a work can only be in submission in one of the two tracks.

For more information on the publishing process, refer to





CASES: International Conference on Compilers, Architectures,

and Synthesis for Embedded Systems


CASES is a premier forum where researchers, developers and practitioners

exchange information on the latest advances in compilers and

architectures for high-performance, low-power embedded systems. The

conference has a long tradition of showcasing leading edge research in

embedded processor, memory, interconnect, storage architectures and

related compiler techniques targeting performance, power, predictability,

security, reliability issues for both traditional and emerging application

domains. In addition, we invite innovative papers that address design,

synthesis, and optimization challenges in heterogeneous and accelerator-

rich architectures.

CODES+ISSS: International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign

and System Synthesis


The International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign and System

Synthesis is the premier event in system-level design, modeling,

analysis, and implementation of modern embedded and cyber-physical

systems, from system-level specification and optimization down to system

synthesis of multi-processor hardware/software implementations. The

conference is a forum bringing together academic research and industrial

practice for all aspects related to system-level and hardware/software





CODES+ISSS Program Chairs:

EMSOFT: International Conference on Embedded Software


The ACM SIGBED International Conference on Embedded Software (EMSOFT)

brings together researchers and developers from academia, industry, and

government to advance the science, engineering, and technology of

embedded software development. Since 2001, EMSOFT has been the premier

venue for cutting-edge research in the design and analysis of software

that interacts with physical processes, with a long-standing tradition

for results on cyber-physical systems, which compose computation,

networking, and physical dynamics.

Special Day on Trustworthy Internet-of-Things


The Internet of Things (IoT) promises to revolutionize the world by

connecting the Internet to physical things. Trust, security, and privacy

are central to the achievement of the IoT vision: advanced computation,

communication, and storage must be delivered in a safe, secure, and

reliable manner. Trustworthy IoT special day will provide a forum for

academia and industry to present and discuss innovative ideas and

solutions related to all facets of trustworthy internet-of-things.

Submissions to the Trust-worthy IoT day are via the three conferences.





Call for Workshop Proposals


ESWEEK 2020 will host several workshops on Oct. 15/16. ESWEEK workshops

are excellent opportunities to bring together researchers and

practitioners from different communities to share their experiences in an

interactive atmosphere. We invite you to submit workshop proposals on any

topic related to the broad set of research, education, and application

areas in em-bedded systems before April 17, 2020.




Workshop Chair:

Patricia Derler, National Instruments, US



Call for Tutorial Proposals


ESWEEK 2020 is looking for high-quality tutorials that will take place

on Oct. 11. Tutorials offer a unique opportunity where presenters can

interact with attendees and attendees can gain in-depth knowledge on

specific topics. Tutorials on all topics related to embedded system

design, analysis and development are welcome and can be either half

or full day, lecture style or hands on.

We invite you to submit tutorial proposals before May 1, 2020.




Tutorial Chair:

Siddharth Garg, New York University, US



Call for Special Session Proposals


ESWEEK 2020 will host several special sessions. They should cover hot,

contemporary topics that are complementary to regular sessions and can

constitute individual presentations, panels or other formats.

Participants of each accepted special session will have the opportunity

to co-author an overview paper (maximum 10 pages) of the session,

published in the ESWEEK proceedings. We invite you to submit special

session proposals on any topic related to the broad areas of interest

of the conference or beyond before May 1, 2020.
