Call For Papers:

Embedded systems with multi-core designs are becoming increasingly important for signal processing, machine learning, and multimedia applications in recent years. While embedded multi-core systems will look to play an important role ahead for application designs, many challenging problems remain to be resolved. Applications, programming models, compilers, API designs, architecture designs, and software tools all need to contribute to the advance of embedded multi-core computing for signal processing, pixel processing, machine learning, and multimedia applications. 


In this special issue, we aim to bring together researchers in the related areas to present the latest developments and technical solutions concerning various aspects of embedded multi-core computing for signal processing and AI applications. This special issue seeks original unpublished papers focusing on emerging signal processing applications, embedded compilers, AI compilers, embedded memory and architecture design, DSP/GPU systems, and embedded multi-core programming models.


The topics of this special issue include but not limited to:


• Architectures for embedded multi-core signal processing systems

• Compilers for DSP processors

• Compilers and optimizations with embedded multi-core supports

• Special instructions for architectures to support post processing and pre-processing models

• AI compilers for DSP architectures 

• Low-power numeric supports with DSP systems for AI applications

• Partitioning and scheduling with AI compilers for AI models

• TVM and MLIR Optimizations

• Auto-Tuning for AI compiler Optimizations

• OpenVX Optimizations

• Compilers optimizations for Subword SIMD computations

• Compilers for heterogeneous embedded multi-core systems

• Programming models for embedded multi-core systems

• Signal processing and machine learning on embedded multi-core systems

• Multimedia signal processing algorithms on embedded multi-core systems

• Multimedia applications on embedded multi-core systems

• OpenCL compilers and applications on multi-core systems

• Augmented reality applications on multi-core systems

• OpenCL programming models with graph
