Call for papers: "Reconfigurable Architectures and Self-Adaptive Autonomic Systems"

For a special issue of the International Journal of Embedded Systems.

New application domains demand ever-increasing adaptability and performance. Today, research is pushing forward, looking for complex heterogeneous, reconfigurable multi-cores architectures. Reconfigurability allows efficient hardware acceleration and virtually unlimited adaptability. Self-adaptive and autonomic computing systems are able to configure, heal, optimise and protect themselves without the need for human intervention.

This special issue aims to collect quality research articles with a solid background in both theoretical and practical aspects of reconfigurable architectures and self-adaptive autonomic systems.

The issue will carry revised and substantially extended versions of selected papers presented at the Third International Conference on Advances in Computing, Communications and Informatics (ICACCI-2014). However, we also strongly encourage researchers unable to participate in the conference to submit articles for this call.

Suitable topics include, but are not limited to, the following:
  • Coarse-grained reconfigurable architecture
  • Collective adaptive systems/systems-of-systems
  • Compilation techniques for reconfigurable architectures
  • Design space exploration
  • Energy efficiency, dependability and security
  • Engineering self-adaptive systems
  • Evaluations of reconfigurable computing
  • Evolvable hardware and dynamic reconfiguration
  • Handling uncertainty in autonomic systems
  • High-performance reconfigurable computing
  • Interconnected architectures for reconfigurable computing systems
  • Modelling and formal methods for self-adaptation and context-awareness
  • Multiprocessor systems and networks on chip
  • New FPGA architectures and reconfigurable fabric
  • Programming languages and paradigms for reconfigurable computing
  • Reconfigurable architectures for embedded systems
  • Reconfigurable computing education
  • Reconfigurable computing for DSP and communications
  • Reconfigurable computing for security and cryptography
  • Reconfigurable fabric architectures
  • Resilience through reconfiguration
  • Decision making techniques in self-* systems
  • Design and architectural language support for self-* systems
  • Robustness and dependability of self-* systems
  • Self-* requirements
  • Self-adaptive many-core systems, distributed systems
  • Self-adaptive networked embedded systems
  • Self-adaptive software and middleware design
  • Software engineering for self-adaptive systems
  • Techniques and tools for resilient computing
  • Verification and validation of self-* systems
  • Application frameworks for reconfigurable embedded systems
