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 and evolution.

CASES is part of the 2009 Embedded Systems Week.

Paper Submission

Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format. Submissions should be around 5000 words and no more than 10 double-column pages, with 1 inch margins and 11 pt font or larger. Include a 100 word single spaced abstract in the first page of the paper. Please make sure your paper prints satisfactorily on the 8.5"x11" (letter) format, this is especially important for countries where A4 paper is standard.

Reviewing will be double blind and authors must conceal their identity. Submissions not adhering to these guidelines may be summarily rejected at the discretion of the chair.

As in the past, the Program Committee may elect to accept some papers for poster and/or short paper sessions.
