CASES 2014


  • CASES webpage is up.


CASES is a forum where researchers, developers and practitioners exchange information on emerging technologies and the latest advances in compilers and architectures for high performance embedded systems design and synthesis. CASES uniquely aims to promote synergies across otherwise vertically integrated communities in embedded systems.

CASES seeks original research papers that focus on increasing the efficiency and capabilities of embedded systems via creative approaches that combine compiler, architecture, and synthesis technologies. Such solutions must address the challenges of bringing embedded systems to the market place, including but not limited to new capabilities, faster time-to-market, lower costs, improvements in power consumption, and improvements in real-time behavior. This year, we have expanded the topic areas to cover emerging domains such as IOT and wearables and especially encourage submissions in these new areas.

CASES is part of Embedded Systems Week, and will be held October 4-9, 2015 in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.

Areas of Interest

Previously unpublished papers containing significant novel ideas and technical results are solicited. Conference topics include, but are not limited to, the following:

Embedded Architectures:
  • GPU and accelerator architectures
  • Reconfigurable processors, FPGAs and extensible cores
  • System-on-chip (SoC) architectures
  • Multi-core and many-core processors for embedded computing
  • On-chip communication architectures and networks-on-chip
  • 3D architectures, integration and synthesis
  • Embedded system design space exploration & methodology
Compilers and Embedded Systems Software:
  • Compilation for reliability, power, performance
  • Static and dynamic execution time analysis
  • Specification of embedded systems
  • Compiler support for GPUs, FPGAs and heterogeneous systems
  • Memory system architecture and management
  • Non-volatile and other emerging memory technologies
  • Scratchpad, smart caches and compiler controlled memories
Power, Reliability and Security:
  • Secure architectures and hardware security
  • Modeling & online management of reliability, power, performance
  • Validation, verification & debugging of embedded software
Emerging Application Domains:
  • Architectures/compilers for Internet of Things (IoT) platforms
  • Architectures/compilers for wearables and other small form factor devices
  • Cyber-physical systems architectures
  • Architectures for emerging nanoscale devices
  • Programmable microfluidics
  • Accelerators for data analytics and learning
  • Neuromorphic and cognitive computing

Submission Information

Submissions must be in ACM proceedings format, 9-point type, and may not exceed 10 pages (all inclusive). Word and LaTeX templates for this format are available here. Submissions must be in PDF, printable on US Letter sized paper. To enable double-blind reviewing, submissions must adhere to two rules:

  1. author names and their affiliations must be omitted; and,
  2. references to related work by the authors should be in the third person (e.g., not "We build on our previous work ..." but rather "We build on the work of ...").

Nothing should be done in the name of anonymity that weakens the submission or makes the job of reviewing the paper more difficult (e.g., important background references should not be omitted or anonymized). Papers must describe unpublished work that is not currently submitted for publication elsewhere as discussed here. Authors of accepted papers will be required to sign an ACM copyright release.

If you have questions about the logistics for the double-blind reviewing process, please contact the program chairs or look at this useful FAQ page authored by Michael Hicks. Submissions not adhering to these guidelines may be summarily rejected at the discretion of the chairs.

Papers must be submitted electronically through the CASES 2015 submission site (not yet online). Please note that, as part of your submission, you will be asked to enter a short abstract of 150 words that will help reviewers decide if they want to review your paper. The abstract in the paper itself may be longer than 150 words.


The program committee will evaluate the technical contribution of each submission as well as its general accessibility to the CASES audience. Papers will be judged on significance, originality, 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, and how it relates to previous work. As in the past, the program committee may elect to accept some papers for poster and/or short paper sessions.
