Call for Papers (.pdf)

The IEEE 11th International Symposium on Embedded Multicore/Many-core Systems-on-Chip aims to provide the  world’s premier forum of leading  researchers in the embedded Multicore/Many-core SoCs software, tools and  applications design areas for academia and industries. Prospective authors are invited to submit their contributions. Submission of a paper implies that at least one of the authors will have a full registration to the symposium upon  acceptance of the paper.
