Embedded systems with multicore designs are of major focuses from both industry and academia. While embedded multicore systems will look to play an important role ahead for system designs, many challenging issues remain. Applications, programming models, architecture designs, emerging memory architectures, and software tools all need to help for the advance of embedded multicore computing ahead.

The 2018 International Workshop on Embedded Multicore Systems (ICPP-EMS 2018) will bring researchers and experts together to present and discuss the latest developments and technical solutions concerning various aspects of embedded multicore computing.

ICPP-EMS 2018 seeks original unpublished papers focusing on emerging applications, embedded compilers, embedded memory and architecture design, DSP/GPU systems, ESLs, embedded multicore programming models, and WCET analysis. Moreover, ICPP-EMS 2018 also welcomes work-in-progress, case studies, visionary idea, new application challenges, and industrial practice studies.

Topics of interest are in all areas of (or related to) embedded multicore systems, including, but not limited to:
– Memory Architectures for embedded multicore systems
– Design for emerging embedded memory systems
– Compilers for DSP processors
– Embedded multicore processors
– Compilers for heterogeneous embedded multicore systems.
