The focus of this workshop is to bring together researchers in the areas of compilers, computer architecture, and synthesis to discuss the assembly of future system-on-a-chip designs. A key focus of the workshop is the design of highly customized SoCs to meet challenging cost, power, and performance objectives of future embedded computer systems. Automatic synthesis is expected to be a key technology to reduce non-recurring engineering costs and time-to-market. This workshop will bring together researchers with industrial and academic expertise to examine these issues.
