Embedded systems with multicore designs are of major focus 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 2017 International Workshop on Embedded Multicore Systems (ICPP-EMS 2017) 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 ICPP-EMS 2017 seeks original unpublished papers focusing on emerging applications, embedded compilers, embedded memory and architecture design, DSP/GPU systems, ESLs, embedded multicore programming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 2017 also welcomes work-in-progress, case studies, visionary idea, new application challenges, and industrial practice studies.

Topics of interest are in all areas of embedded multicore systems, including, but not limited to the following (see workshop web site for a more extensive list):
– Memory architectures for embedded multicore systems
– Embedded multicore processors
– Compilers for embedded multicore systems and DSPs
– Programming models for embedded multicore systems
– Software for multicore, GPU, and embedded architectures
– VM for embedded systems
– 3D IC and multicore architectures
– Real-time system designs for embedded multicore environments
– ESL designs for embedded multicore systems
– Embedded OS designs and performance tuning tools
– Hardware/software co-design frameworks
– Embedded devices + cloud computing frameworks

Papers should present original research and should provide sufficient background material to make them accessible to the community. Authors are requested to follow the standard format as ICPP main conference. Regular full paper (limit to 8 pages) submissions should be made electronically through the workshop web site.
