Embedded computing systems enable highly optimized
special-purpose services provided by host devices.
Though miniaturized and mostly invisible,
embedded systems make up the lion's share
of all computer systems in the world. They pervade everyday life unnoticed.
Due to microscopic sizes and mass production volumes, the driving
system development factor is low unit cost, rather than development cost.
The downsizing of embedded systems goes hand in hand with an unrelenting growth
of memory and storage capacity. Their functionality is growing
proportionally. A continuously expanding range
of new applications with sizable data volumes for embedded systems
is taking shape.
Since "function gravitates to data" (J. Gray, NASD'98),
traditional data management issues and problems are re-emerging for embedded
systems. Solutions for conventional systems and architectures
need to be reconsidered and replanted in the context of embedded systems.
EDACS 2009 will provide a forum for presenting and
discussing state-of-the-art, on-going and innovative research and development
in this exciting new field.
are calling for papers presenting original research results, innovative ideas,
work in progress, industrial experience, case studies or position statements.
