Submissions on new topics: emerging technologies, architectures/platforms, and applications are particularly encouraged. Submissions should be full-length papers of up to 6 pages (double-column, ACM SIG Proceedings format, available at, including all illustrations, tables, references and an abstract of no more than 100 words. Papers exceeding the six-page limit will not be reviewed. Submission must be anonymous: papers identifying the authors and/or with explicit references to their prior work will be automatically rejected. Electronic submission in pdf format only via the web is required. More information on electronic submission to ISLPED’14 can be found later at this website.
