Demand for high performance embedded computing and increases in
complexity of embedded software require leveraging diverse
architecture, microarchitecture and compiler research.
Application-specific solutions are needed in embedded areas, such as
digital audio/video, imaging, game consoles, graphics, mobile and web
appliances, and automotive systems. There are new challenges for
embedded systems, such as time-to-market, cost, code size, weight,
power, and real-time behavior.
The CASES conference provides a forum for emerging technology in
embedded computing systems, with an emphasis on compilers and
architectures for embedded systems. CASES is a common forum for
researchers with an interest in embedded systems to reach across
vertically integrated communities and to promote synergies. As evident
from the past CASES meetings, several emerging applications are
critically dependent on these interactions for their sustained growth
This year, the sixth in the CASES series, the conference will focus on
the complexity of system-level design and its associated challenges and
requirements for compilers and architectures.
