Special Issue Information

Embedded computing permeates our daily life in different forms, from electronic devices at our homes to mobile devices such as smartphones. Most computing devices in embedded systems impose strict constraints that require special development and design efforts. Reducing power dissipation and/or energy consumption is in many cases needed to obey those constraints and contribute to the success of many embedded systems. This Special Issue will be devoted to recent research achievements regarding energy-efficient software and hardware techniques for embedded computing. Specifically, articles about the following topics, all addressing embedded computing, are welcome:

  • Software-based optimizations for saving energy consumption;
  • Hardware-based optimizations for saving energy consumption;
  • Trade-offs between QoS/QoE and energy consumption;
  • Optimizing for power dissipation and energy consumption;
  • Runtime autotuning techniques for energy efficiency;
  • Runtime adaptability for energy efficiency;
  • Impact of data structures and types on energy efficiency;
  • Educational approaches regarding energy efficiency;
  • Best software/hardware practices for energy efficiency;
  • AI for energy-efficient software/hardware systems;
  • Energy-efficient computing using emerging non-volatile memory technologies;
  • Energy-efficient in-memory or near-memory computing.

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. Journal of Low Power Electronics and Applications is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly 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 1000 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.
