                                                      HICSS-33 Minitrack on
                                    Compilers and Tools in Embedded Systems

                                            Maui, Hawaii - January 4-7, 2000

This minitrack is organized as part of the Software Technology Track of the
                  33rd Hawaii International Conference on Systems Sciences.


Embedded processors are being used in numerous applications like automotive
systems, hand-held devices, set-top boxes, wireless communications etc. Due
to the nature of these applications, processors must satisfy low power
requirements, low price, small memory and yet high computational power.
Traditionally these processors had application specific instruction set
architectures and were programmed in assembly languages. The complexity of
developing, maintaining and time to market considerations of applications
based on these processors is causing a significant effort being devoted to
the development of software tools. This track is a forum for researchers to
present their ideas about these tools for embedded systems specifically on
processor designs, optimizing compilers, debuggers, profilers, development
environments, simulators, verification systems etc. Topics of interest, but
not limited to, for this minitrack are:

      * Software Patterns for embedded applications
      * Programming languages for embedded applications
      * Formal specification and verification of embedded systems
      * Real-Time Operating systems for Embedded Processors
      * Language extensions to exploit architectural features of embedded
      * Optimizations to reduce code size, increase execution efficiency and
          power consumption
      * Compiler techniques to exploit the instruction level and task level
          parallelism in embedded applications
      * Architectural Innovations for producing optimizing compilers for
          embedded applications
      * Profiling and performance evaluation of embedded applications
      * Debugging of embedded applications
      * Formal techniques to predict the performance of embedded applications
      * Testing techniques for embedded applications
      * Project management techniques for embedded software
      * Hardware/software co-design for embedded systems
      * Simulation of embedded processors
      * Program development environments for embedded systems

Important Dates:

      * A 300-word abstract by March 15th, 1999
      * Feedback to author on abstract by April 15th, 1999
      * Eight copies of the manuscript by June 1st, 1999
      * Notification of accepted papers by August 31st, 1999
      * Camera-ready copies of accepted manuscripts are due by October 1st,
