PDF format of the Call for Presentations

The High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) technical committee announces the Eleventh Annual HPEC workshop to be held 18–20 September 2007 at MIT Lincoln Laboratory in Lexington, MA. The workshop will give U.S. government-funded researchers from academia, industry and government, working in this important area, an opportunity to discuss techniques, approaches and ongoing developments with relevance to real-time embedded computing and related military applications. During this eleventh year, the HPEC 2007 workshop will have as its theme “Multicore processors and their impact on DoD HPEC systems.” The technical committee seeks new presentations that clearly describe advances in high performance embedded computing technologies, emphasizing one or more of the following topics:

Automated Design Tools

Advanced Middleware and Software Technology

Mapping and Scheduling of Parallel and Real-Time Applications

Case Studies and Benchmarking of HPEC Applications

Signal Processing Techniques

Computing Technologies for Challenging Form Factors

ASIC and FPGA Advances

Parallel and Distributed System Architectures

Networking and Interconnects

Fault-Tolerant Computing

Digital Front-Ends

Technology Trends

All submittals will be competitively reviewed and judged on their technical merit, novelty and relevance to the technical program. Preference will be given to papers with strong, quantitative results. The workshop will have both Open Sessions and Unclassified/U.S. Only sessions, as well as poster presentations. Presenters with significant hardware demonstrations are encouraged to apply to the poster sessions. Since the presentations themselves will constitute the published proceedings, speakers are requested to prepare charts of the highest quality. Electronic copies of the charts presented at the workshop will be included in the workshop proceedings.
