Pervasive devices and computers are spread throughout the physical environment to create ambient intelligence providing all the time useful services to improve human experience and quality of life.

Embedded systems architectures for pervasive computers and devices will facilitate the integration of computational intelligence in our everyday live surroundings, wearable objects, workplaces, homes, etc.., to allow objects to sense and react efficiently to their changing environments.

Pervasive embedded computers features a host of technical challenges that differs from those faced by conventional computers because they are more tightly integrated with the physical environments, more autonomous, and more constrained in terms of space, power, weight and cost. These embedded computer architectures have to operate, communicate, and adapt in real time. Moreover, they must deal also with energy consumption and fault tolerance and make pervasive computers more efficient. Enabling such progress requires to overcome a number of research challenges.

This workshop aims at providing a forum for researchers, engineers, and practitioners, from academia and industry to discuss their latest research and to exchange new ideas and experiences on embedded architectures for pervasive computers and related issues.

High quality selected papers (best papers) will be considered for publication in AutoSoft Journal - indexed by SCIE, Special Issue on Intelligent Embedded Computing: Embedded System track.
