REMINDER: the deadline for CASES'99 submissions is right around
the corner (July 15th).

CASES'99 Publicity Chair


                                                Call for Participation

                                  The Second International Workshop on
                Compiler and Architecture Support for Embedded Systems

                                                    October 1-2, 1999
                                                  Wyndham City Centre
                                                      Washington, D.C.

    CASES'99 provides a forum for researchers to discuss ideas
at the crossroads of domain-specific embedded system design,
compiler and architecture research for high-performance computing,
high-level synthesis, and emerging application domains enabled by
these technologies. Growing demand for high performance in embedded
systems creates new opportunities to leverage instruction-level
parallelism (ILP) and explicitly parallel instruction computing (EPIC)
in emerging application domains.

This year, the workshop will focus on these emerging application
domains, enabled by high performance embedded processors, and the
challenges and requirements for compilers and architectures needed to
support these domains. Constraints on power consumption, code size,
weight, and cost place stringent requirements on embedded processors
and the software they execute. Real-time image and video processing,
graphics, and speech recognition and multi-media are among the many
compute-intensive applications being enabled in the embedded space
by advances in application-specific designs based on COTS

Technical as well as position papers espousing significant novel
ideas and achievements are solicited. Topics of interest include,
but are not limited to:

      * Novel requirements and constraints such as power consumption,
          from emerging application domains in compilers and architectures

      * Challenges and solutions in microarchitecture design for
          embedded systems using ILP

      * Techniques for the design and synthesis of domain-specific
          embedded processors based on high-level synthesis

      * Exploiting interactions between hardware and software layers,
          spurred by innovation in reconfigurable or adaptive computing

      * Methods or directions for adapting EPIC/VLIW technology for
          use in domain-specific computing

      * Technologies supporting temporal predictability and performance
          such as compiler controlled memory hierarchies

Presentation of ongoing work is encouraged. The workshop has no
formal proceedings. Results presented at the workshop can be
subsequently published in archival journals. We plan to invite
high-quality papers from the workshop to be submitted for a special
monograph that reflects the workshop's theme.

In addition to presentations, the workshop will feature

      * Two keynote lectures by experts:

            - Lecture 1: "Improving embedded system performance through
                                            application-specific instruction extension"

                By Albert Wang, Tensilica, Inc.

            - Lecture 2: "Military Applications Requiring High Performance
                                            Embedded Signal Processors"

                By David Martinez, MIT

      * Two expert panels from industry, government and academia to
          discuss the following topics:

            - Panel 1: "Where are the Challenges for Emerging Embedded

                Coordinator: Tom Conte, North Carolina State University

            - Panel 2: "Where are the Answers to the Challenges of
                                          Emerging Embedded Applications?"

                Coordinator: Mary Hall, USC-ISI
