Call for Papers (.pdf)

The 11th IEEE MCSoC-17 (11th IEEE International Symposium on Embedded Multicore/Many-core Systems-on-Chip) aims at providing the world’s premier forum of leading researchers in the embedded Multicore/Many-core SoCs software, tools and applications design areas for Academia and industries. Prospective authors are invited to submit papers of their works. Submission of a paper implies that at least one of the authors will have a full registration to the symposium upon acceptance of the paper.
