Embedded Systems for Pervasive Computing

Pervasive computing (also ubiquitous computing) creates a smart environment through a network of embedded smart devices that collect, process, and transmit information in cooperative and autonomous manner. This special issue, originated from the 2015 IEEE Embedded and Ubiquitous Computing Conference (EUC), focuses on hardware and software design aspects of embedded systems for pervasive spaces. This special issue is open to public and we invite authors to contribute research articles on hardware design and software tools in order to enhance connectivity, mobility, context-awareness, reliability, and privacy/security in pervasive spaces under stringent power and energy constraints and limited resources for computing and connectivity.

    Real-time semi-partitioned scheduling of fork-join tasks using work-stealing

    This paper extends the work presented in Maia et al. (Semi-partitioned scheduling of fork-join tasks using work-stealing, 2015) where we address the semi-partitioned scheduling of real-time fork-join tasks on ...
