The International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign and System Synthesis (CODES+ISSS) is the premier conference in system-level design, hardware/software co-design, modeling, analysis, and implementation of modern Embedded Systems, Cyber-Physical Systems, and Internet-of-Things, from system-level specification and optimization to synthesis of system-on-chip hardware/software implementations. CODES+ISSS is part of Embedded Systems Week (ESWEEK), the premier event covering all aspects of hardware and software design for smart, intelligent, and connected computing systems.

CODES+ISSS 2023 solicits the submission of original research articles for full-length research papers that will be published in the ACM Transactions on Embedded Computing Systems (TECS). CODES+ISSS solicits submissions on the following topics. More information about the submission is at
