The influence of embedded systems is constantly growing. Increasingly powerful
and versatile devices are developed and put on the market at a fast pace. The
number of features is increasing, and so are the constraints on the systems
concerning size, performance, energy dissipation and timing predictability.
Since most systems today use a processor to execute an application program
rather than using dedicated hardware, the requirements can not be fulfilled by
hardware architects alone: Hardware and software have to work together to meet
the tight constraints put on modern devices.

One of the key characteristics of embedded software is that it heavily depends
on the underlying hardware. The reason of the dependency is that embedded
software needs to be designed in an application specific way. To reduce the
system design cost, e.g. code size, energy consumption etc., embedded software
needs to be optimized exploiting the characteristics of the underlying hardware.

SCOPES focuses on the software generation process for modern embedded systems.
Topics of interest include all aspects of the compilation process, starting with
suitable modeling and specification techniques and programming languages for
embedded systems. The emphasis of the workshop lies on code generation
techniques for embedded processors. The exploitation of specialized instruction
set characteristics is as important as the development of new optimizations for
embedded application domains. Cost criteria for the entire code generation and
optimization process include runtime, timing predictability, energy dissipation,
code size and others. Since today's embedded devices frequently consist of a
multi-processor system-on-chip, the scope of this workshop is not limited to
single-processor systems but particularly covers compilation techniques for
MPSoC architectures.

In addition, this workshop intends to put a spotlight on the interactions
between compilers and other components in the embedded system design process.
This includes compiler support for e.g. architecture exploration during HW/SW
codesign or interactions between operating systems and compilation techniques.
Finally, techniques for compiler aided profiling, measurement, debugging and
validation of embedded software are also covered by this workshop, because
stability of embedded software is mandatory.

SCOPES 2009 is the 12th workshop in a series of workshops initially called
"International Workshop on Code Generation for Embedded Processors". The name
SCOPES has been used since the 4th workshop. The scope of the workshop remains
software for embedded systems with emphasis on code generation (compilers) for
embedded processors. SCOPES will be held in cooperation with ACM SIGBED and is
sponsored by EDAA and PREDATOR. SCOPES 2009 is co-located with the DATE conference.



Full paper submission:              Nov 21, 2008
Notification of acceptance:         Jan 21, 2009
Final paper submission:             Mar 02, 2009



Papers should present original research results not published or submitted for
publication in other forums. Papers should not exceed 10 pages (single-spaced,
2 columns, 10pt font; see the DATE website for detailed
guidelines) and must be submitted using the SCOPES paper submission website. To
permit blind review, submissions should not include the author names. Accepted
papers will be published via the ACM digital library.
