LCTES provides a link between the programming languages and embedded systems engineering communities. Researchers and developers in these areas are addressing many similar problems, but with different backgrounds and approaches. LCTES is intended to expose researchers and developers from either area to relevant work and interesting problems in the other area and provide a forum where they can interact.

LCTES 2014 is co-located with PLDI 2014, in Edinburgh, UK, June 12 -- 13, 2014. This will be the fifteenth conference in the LCTES series.

Call for Papers

Embedded system design faces many challenges both with respect to functional requirements and nonfunctional requirements, many of which are conflicting. They are found in areas such as design and developer productivity, verification, validation, maintainability, and meeting performance goals and resource constraints. Novel design-time and run-time approaches are needed to meet the demand of emerging applications and to exploit new hardware paradigms, and in particular to scale up to multicores (including GPUs and FPGAs) and distributed systems built from multicores.

LCTES 2014 solicits papers presenting original work on programming languages, compilers, tools, theory, and architectures that help in overcoming these challenges. Research papers on innovative techniques are welcome, as well as experience papers on insights obtained by experimenting with real-world systems and applications.

Papers are solicited on, but not limited to, the following topics in embedded systems:

Programming language challenges, including:

Compiler challenges, including:
Tools for analysis, specification, design, and implementation, including:
Theory and foundations of embedded systems, including:
Novel embedded architectures, including:
