ODES-8: 8th Workshop on Optimizations for DSP and Embedded Systems http://www.imec.be/odes April 25, 2010 Toronto, Ontario in conjunction with IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Code Generation and Optimization (CGO) http://www.cgo.org/ Preliminary call for papers Optimizations are crucial to meet the performance, power and cost requirements that DSP and embedded systems have. The aim of the ODES workshop is to give the opportunity to researchers and practitioners working on this, to share their findings and get feedback. We think interacting with the community is crucial to do relevant research, and therefore ODES tries to maximize the interaction by carefully selecting the program committee members that review the submissions and at the workshop itself, reserving enough time for discussion. Topics of Interest Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: + Algorithmic transformations and code/software optimization + Hardware and software optimizations for low-power consumption and/or code density + Coprocessor and hardware accelerators + Compiler techniques and code generation and optimization techniques for algorithms and systems for * Video compression, pre and post processing * Medical signal processing + Frameworks for profiling and scheduling tasks (multiple/concurrent) on various hardware resources (single-core + hardware accelerators, dual-core, system-on-a-chip, etc) + Hardware/software trade-offs with ASICs, FPGA's, DSPs, general-purpose processors, microcontrollers, etc as building blocks + Retargetable compilers and reconfigurable architectures Important dates and deadlines + Submission: February 5, 2010 + Acceptance: February 19, 2010 + Final version: March 2, 2010 Submission guidelines To encourage submissions of early work and more mature work, we are allowing two submission formats: * Either a full paper, not exceeding 10 pages in length, two-column formatting preferred. * Or a set of slides, along with a brief description (1-2 pages) of the main theme of the talk. Include the list of authors and their affiliations, addresses, telephone and fax numbers, email addresses and the name of the corresponding author. Please send the submission/s by the deadline to: Tom Vander Aa and Jagadeesh Sankaran via email at vanderaa@imec.be and sankaran@ti.com Program co-chairs: Jagadeesh Sankaran sankaran@ti.com Texas Instruments Tom Vander Aa vanderaa@imec.be IMEC Program Committee We are currently still composing the TPC, so the following list is incomplete: Francisco Barat NXP Shuvra Bhattacharrya University of Maryland John Cavazos University of Delaware Heiko Falk University of Dortmund Murali Jayapala IMEC Ossi Kalevo Nokia Vijay Narayanan Pennsylvania State University Gary Tyson Florida State University Past Workshops ODES-1: http://www.ece.vill.edu/~deepu/odes/odes-1_program.html ODES-2: http://www.ece.vill.edu/~deepu/odes/odes-2_program.html ODES-3: http://www.ece.vill.edu/~deepu/odes/odes-3_program.html ODES-4: http://www.ece.vill.edu/~deepu/odes/odes-4_program.html ODES-5: http://www.ece.vill.edu/~deepu/odes/odes-5_program.html ODES-6: http://www.imec.be/odes/ ODES-7: http://www.imec.be/odes/ _______________________________________________ HiPEAC Publicity hipeac-publicity@hipeac.ac.upc.edu http://gso.ac.upc.edu/mailman/listinfo/hipeac-publicity
