The First International Workshop on Smart Embedded Systems

SES 2014

     Smart embedded systems are becoming more and more ubiquitous in our daily lives, such as mobile devices, healthcare, automotive, public safety and security. Compared to classical embedded systems, these systems are distinctive with their smartness, i.e., the ability to intact with human being or the surrounding physical environment based on the previous experience. Therefore, it becomes critical to properly revisit and co-optimize hardware/software architectures, learning methods and specific applications to adapt with the emerging smart embedded systems, especially when these systems are adopted in critical environments or when integrating with emerging technologies. To address such challenges, the goal of SES 2014 is to provide a forum for scientists, engineers, and researchers to discuss and exchange their new ideas, novel results, work in progress and experience on all aspects of smart embedded systems. Topics of particular interest include, but are not limited to:

  • Innovative architectures and emerging technologies in smart embedded systems
  • Smart embedded systems integrating with emerging technologies (e.g., emerging memory technologies, emerging hardware design)
  • Machine learning and artificial intelligence techniques for smart embedded systems
  • Software optimization techniques for power, timing, memory minimization
  • Code size optimization techniques for smart embedded systems
  • Software design and optimization for multi-core, parallel and heterogeneous smart embedded systems
  • Software optimization for memory systems in smart embedded systems
  • Real-time software design and optimization
  • Trustworthy computing in embedded software
  • Secure software design in smart embedded systems
  • Application-specific embedded software design and optimization
  • Code generation and optimization for embedded processors
  • Design space exploration and minimization
  • Profiling and analysis techniques for smart embedded software
  • Verification and testing techniques for smart embedded software
  • Power/energy estimation tools for smart embedded systems
  • System-level power/energy management
  • Case studies and specific applications of smart embedded systems (e.g., smart transportation, smart environment, smart devices, smart cars, smart buildings, smart medicine and so on)
Important Dates
  • Submission: 20 August 2014   15 September 2014
  • Notification: 15 September 2014   30 September 2014
  • Camera-ready: 30 September 2014   10 October 2014
Submission Guidelines
     Paper submissions should be no longer than 6 pages with a font size of 10 using the IEEE conference template. Papers must be submitted electronically as PDF files. All submitted papers will be subject to peer reviews by Technical Program Committee members and other experts in the field. All presented papers in the conference will be published in the proceedings of the conference and submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. Authors are requested to first register their submissions and submit their manuscripts in PDF format via EDAS. Please, note that at least one author of each accepted paper must register and attend the workshop to present the paper. Failure to present the paper at the workshop will result in the withdrawal of the paper from the Proceedings.

     For any questions regarding SES2014, please feel free to contact the workshop program co-chair Duo Liu ( for more information.
