- Best Paper Award: "Parallel Programming Models for a Multi-Processor SoC Platform Applied to High-Speed Traffic Management",
by Pierre Paulin, Chuck Pilkington, Michel Langevin, Essaid Bensoudane - Central R&D, STMicroelectronics, Ottawa, Canada;
Gabriela Nicolescu - Ecole Polytechnique de Montreal, Canada
The IEEE/ACM/IFIP International Conference on Hardware/Software Codesign and System
Synthesis (CODES+ISSS 2004) is the premier event in design of embedded systems hardware, software
We are proud to continue the tradition of upholding high quality in
an open forum for promoting active discussion on innovative topics. The program
actively seeks industry participation. High-quality original papers will be
accepted for oral presentation followed by interactive poster sessions.
Proceedings are published by ACM SIGDA, and selected papers from the conference
proceedings will be targeted for journal publication in a special issue.

emerging technologies, experience maintaining benchmark suites, representation,
interchange format, tools, copyrights, maintenance, reference implementations,
- New topics
New challenges for next generation semi-custom heterogeneous computing systems,
arising from new technologies (e.g., nanotechnology) or new applications (e.g.,
ubiquitous computing). Studies of how technology and applications interact to
motivate new solutions and design approaches, e.g., on-chip heterogeneous
multiprocessing and user-friendly HCI leading to new programmerís views in
system-level design and resulting in new benchmarks, models, architectures,
design tools and methodologies.
- Design track: new solutions for the design of embedded systems (New for 2004!)
This track will be devoted to contributions that highlight design experiences
of great interest to the community, by demonstrating the application of new
theoretical approaches as well as state-of-the-art methodologies and tools to
