- Jan 20, 2014: CODES+ISSS website is up.
The International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign and System Synthesis is the premier event in the design, modeling, analysis, and implementation of modern embedded systems, from system-level specification and optimization to hardware/software implementation. The conference is a forum for active discussions on various topics of current
and future importance to designers and researchers. The program of the conference brings together the latest and the best in academic and industrial research and development. High-quality original papers will be accepted for oral presentation followed by interactive poster sessions.
CODES+ISSS 2014 is part of the Embedded Systems Week 2014.

Areas of Interest
CODES+ISSS invites contributions on specification specification, modeling, design, analysis, and implementation of embedded systems.
The conference covers a wide range of design issues and applications relevant to important embedded system quality
metrics including performance, cost, power consumption, reliability, security, and usability. The following relevant areas are
representative but not exhaustive. We welcome submissions on novel solutions, new challenges, and emerging
technologies in all these areas:
- Track 1) Hardware/software co-design - Specification and refinement, design representation, system synthesis, partitioning, hardware-software interaction, design space exploration, reconfigurable design, and model-based design.
- Track 2) Domain and application-specific design techniques - Analysis, design, and optimization techniques for
multimedia, medical, automotive, security, and other specialized application domains, cyber-physical systems.
- Track 3) Embedded software - Compilers, memory management, virtual machines, scheduling, operating systems, realtime
support, fault-tolerance, and middleware.
- Track 4) Embedded systems architecture - Architecture and micro-architecture design, exploration and optimization
including application-specific, storage systems, memory and communication, networks-on-chip.
- Track 5) Large-scale system architecture - Multi-cores, GP-GPUs, heterogeneous systems, data centers, cloud computing,
- Track 6) Simulation, validation and verification - Hardware/software co-simulation, verification and validation
methodologies, formal verification, hardware-accelerated simulation, test methodology, design for testability, specification languages/models, and benchmarks.
- Track 7) Power-aware systems - Power- and energy-aware system design and methodologies ranging from low-power
embedded systems to energy-efficient large scale systems such as Green IT and Smart Grid.
- Track 8) Industrial practices and case studies - Practical impact on current and/or future industries with applications of the state-of-the-art methodologies and tools in various application areas including wireless, networking, multimedia, automotive, medical systems, etc.
- Papers must represent original work, not published or submitted for publication in other forums.
- A blind review process will be enforced. Authors must not reveal their identity directly or indirectly.
- Papers must be in PDF format and should not exceed 10 pages in ACM two-column format (9pt on 8.5"x11" letter size paper).
For formatting instructions and templates, visit the ACM
web site. Of note, 10 pages is an upper limit. Authors are encouraged to submit shorter papers if this better fits the nature and content of the paper.
- Formal proceedings will be published on CD-ROM and online (Copyright held by ACM and IEEE).
