Special Issue in Electronics: Hardware Accelerators for Deep Neural Networks
Last generation embedded systems have evolved from traditional standalone systems to become a complex environment where computational elements tightly interact with physical entities such as sensors networks and I/O devices.
The mobility and pervasive requirements of such environments impose power and energy consumption constraints that must be met in the context of increasing computational needs, due to the processing of large amounts of data from sensing and input devices.
This Special Issue will explore emerging approaches, ideas, and contributions to address the challenges in the design of energy efficient computational-centric embedded systems and on-chip networks.
Potential topics include, but are not limited to:
- Approximate computing for energy-efficient applications
- Novel architectures for embedded low power computing
- Communication infrastructures for energy efficient IoT environments
- Energy efficient neural networks
- Energy-aware parallel architectures for high-performance computing
- Design Platforms and Tools for optimizing energy/performance trade-offs

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Electronics is an international peer-reviewed open access semimonthly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 1800 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
