The pursuit of Moore’s Law is slowing and the exploration of alternative devices is underway to replace the CMOS transistor and traditional architectures at the heart of data processing. Moreover, the emergence of stringent application constraints, particularly those linked to energy consumption, require new system architectural strategies (e.g. manycore) and real-time operational adaptability approaches. Such complex systems require new and powerful design and programming methods to ensure optimal and reliable operation. This special issue aims at collating new research along all the dimensions of emerging technologies and architectures for computing in manycores.

The topics of interest include, but are not limited to:
– Emerging on-chip computing technologies and architectures
– Many-core architecture customization, heterogeneous architectures
– Runtime resource management (energy, memory, reliability …)
– Programming models, languages, compilers and virtualization techniques for new computing paradigms

Prospective authors are invited to submit their manuscripts electronically after the “open for submissions” date, adhering to the /IEEE Transactions on Multi-Scale Computing Systems/ guidelines ( Please submit your papers through the online system ( and be sure to select the special issue name. /Manuscripts should not be published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere/. Please submit only full papers intended for review, not abstracts, to the ScholarOne portal.
