The past few decades have witnessed rapid advances in sophisticated circuits, algorithms and systems to tackle many difficult problems and the hardware/software platforms to realize these solutions in physical form. Many of these solutions have been in the form of portable, embedded or wearable devices and systems while others have been distributed, decentralized and massively networked. A system on Chip (SoC) technology embodies and symbolizes much of these advances. A SoC system comprises of several cooperating, interacting, potentially heterogeneous hardware/firmware/software sub-systems.

The objective of the 8th International Symposium on Embedded computing and system Design (ISED) is to provide a congenial yet serious platform for experts from academia and industry to interact with young researchers in Computer Electrical and Electronics Engineering. Developments in these domains will have a large role to play in future electronic system design and technologies focusing on being user-friendly, eco-sensitive and energy efficient. The symposium would enable fruitful discussions between experts and other delegates leading to concrete contributions towards advancing the state of the art. Original, unpublished research papers are solicited from industrial and academic researchers. ISED strives to spur and share, examine and accelerate innovations and studies in a range of related areas, including but not limited to the following conference tracks:


  • Embedded System Design (ESD)
  • Software System and Application Design (SSD)
  • Real-time systems and Applications (RTA)
  • Signal Processing and Applications (SPA)
