Call for paper: ARCS 2016


*C A L L   F O R   P A P E R S*

29th GI/ITG International Conference on *Architecture of Computing Systems* (ARCS 2016)
Nuremberg, Germany, April 4–7, 2016

Paper Submission Deadline: October 26, 2015


The ARCS series of conferences has a long tradition reporting high quality results in
computer architecture and operating systems research. The focus of the 2016 conference
will be on *Heterogeneity in Architectures and Systems – From Embedded to HPC*.

In 2016, ARCS will be organized by the Department of Computer Science at the
Friedrich-Alexander University Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU).

The ARCS 2016 proceedings will be published in the Springer Lecture Notes on Computer
Science (LNCS) series. After the conference, it is planned that the authors of
selected papers will be invited to submit an extended version of their contribution
for publication in a special issue of the Journal of Systems Architecture (JSA).
In addition, the best paper and the best presentation will be awarded during the conference.

*Topics of ARCS include, but are not limited to*
o  Architectures and design methods/tools for robust, fault-tolerant,
real-time embedded systems
o Generic and application-specific accelerators in heterogeneous architectures,
heterogeneous image systems
o Distributed computing architectures, high-performance computing (HPC), and
cloud computing
o Cyber-physical systems, internet of things (IoT), Industrie 4.0, and
their applications
o Multi-/manycore architectures, memory systems, and interconnection networks
o Programming models, runtime systems, middleware, verification, and
tool support for manycore systems
o Operating systems including but not limited to scheduling, memory management,
power management, and RTOS
o Adaptive system architectures such as reconfigurable systems in hardware and software
o Organic and autonomic computing including both theoretical and
practical results on Self-X techniques
o Energy awareness and green computing
o System aspects of ubiquitous and pervasive computing such as sensor nodes, novel input/output
devices, novel computing platforms, architecture modeling, and middleware
o Architectures for robotics and automation systems
o Performance modeling and engineering
o Approximate computing
