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.

CASES Program Chairs:
Partha Pande, Washington State University, US
Umit Ogras, Arizona State University, US

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 co-design.

CODES+ISSS Program Chairs:
Roman Lysecky, University of Arizona, US
Jason Xue, City University of Hong Kong, HK

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.

EMSOFT Program Chairs:
Timothy Bourke, Inria Paris, FR
Linh Thi Xuan Phan, University of Pennsylvania, US

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 embedded 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.

Special Sessions Chair:
Paul Bogdan, University of Southern California, US
