Call for Papers

Special Issue on: "Latest Advances in Embedded Systems Research in Latin America"

Guest Editors:

  • Dr. Maximiliano Antonelli, University of Mar del Plata (UNMDP), Argentina
  • Dr. Maria Liz Crespo, Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP), Italy
  • Dr. Luciana De Micco, National University of Mar del Plata (UNMDP), Argentina
  • Dr. Carlos Meza Benavides, Hochschule Anhalt (Germany) and Inst.Tecnológico de Costa Rica, Costa Rica
  • Dr. Rosa Maria Woo Garcia, Universidad Veracruzana, México.

In Latin America, a large number of researchers work in the field of Embedded Systems. Their valuable results got published across their universities and geographical region, though not abroad. Recently, that started to change with events like the Argentine Conference on Embedded Systems (CASE) and their partnership with international publications. In our experience, advances in Embedded Systems made in the region are an exciting contribution to the worldwide scientific community. The potential readers of this Special Issue are researchers, professors, students, and engineers interested in the latest advancements in embedded systems. This Special Issue aims to request the latest unpublished work on embedded systems from academia and industry from Latin America.

The objectives are:

  • To disseminate the scientific and technological development done in Latin America to worldwide.
  • To promote the development of Embedded Systems worldwide.
  • To allow a more fluid exchange between academia and industry in Latin America and worldwide.
  • To focus on the latest scientific results and advances in the Embedded Systems.

Subject Coverage:

Suitable topics include, but are not limited, to the following:

  • Embedded software
  • Digital Signal Processing for embedded applications
  • Modeling of Embedded Systems
  • Embedded Systems’ Methods and Tools
  • Implementation and design of Embedded Systems

Notes for Prospective Authors

Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere (N.B. Conference papers may only be submitted if the paper has been completely rewritten, appropriate written permissions have been obtained from any copyright holders of the original paper, and the paper has been extended conceptually by at least 30%.).

All papers are refereed through a peer review process.

All papers must be limited to 4 pages written in English. Accepted papers will be required to submit a 3-minute Video Preview, introducing and motivating the paper. For more information, please read the IEEE ESL website.

Important Dates

  • Submission deadline: 15 November 2022
  • Notification to authors: 15 December 2022

Call for Special Issue Proposals

IEEE Embedded Systems Letters (ESL) is inviting proposals for special issues in the broad domain of embedded systems and software, cyber-physical systems, and the Internet of Things. Special issue proposals can focus on any research area that is consistent with the scope of ESL. The idea of the special issue is to provide an opportunity to capture a snapshot of the state-of-the-art on a specific theme, share new perspective, or enable a new research direction.

The prospective guest editor(s) should submit a short written proposal of up to four pages including the following information:

  • Title of the Special Issue
  • The Guest editor(s) name and affiliation
  • The motivation and importance of the theme in the context of ESL
  • The scope of the topics for the special issue
  • Proposed schedule
  • Potential contributors (IEEE rules disallow paper submissions to special issues by authors who have conflict-of-interest with the guest editors)
  • Short bio of the guest editor(s)
  • A draft one-page call for papers for the special issue

Proposals will be competitively selected through a rigorous review process in response to this public Call for Proposals. The selection of the proposals will be made by the Editor-in-Chief in consultation with the editorial board of the journal. Each submitted proposal will be evaluated based on the following criteria:

  • Timeliness, relevance, and coherence of the theme
  • Originality of the theme compared to recent special issues in ESL and other related journals
  • Credential of the prospective Guest Editor(s)

There is no specific deadline for the submission of special issue proposals. Each proposal will be evaluated as and when it is submitted.

Current Call for perspective papers

IEEE Embedded Systems Letters (ESL) is inviting perspective papers in the broad domain of embedded systems and software, cyber-physical systems, and the Internet of Things. A perspective paper could present a grand challenge problem in the field that needs to be addressed, charter a new direction of research, express a contradictory viewpoint, or promote an interdisciplinary research area. The journal hopes that the perspective papers will be of lasting value to the community, and of the highest quality.

The perspective papers will go through the same rigorous peer-review process as the regular papers. However, the prospective authors may choose to first submit (at most) one-page title and abstract to the ESL Deputy Editor-in-Chief Aviral Shrivastava at [email protected] for quick feedback on the suitability of the proposal as a perspective paper. Given a positive assessment, the author may then proceed to expound upon the topic and submit the full perspective paper to

Note that the first step is not mandatory and is only meant to guide the authors. A positive assessment of the abstract does not imply acceptance of the paper. The full perspective paper will be evaluated by an Associate Editor of the journal and selected peer reviewers just like regular papers.

There is no specific deadline for the submission of perspective papers. Each paper will be evaluated as and when it is submitted.
