Journal of Application Developer News

The Journal for Developers of Heterogeneous Computing System


Submit now!
Publishing takes around three weeks

Rapid-decision, peer-reviewed publishing of commercial and academic research, technical, short, overview and other type of papers


Please vist the ADN website, links are given below.

“ The Application Developer News - ADN” is a new Open Access Journal for industrial and academic researchers, commercial entrepreneurs, and developers. The journal is focusing on challenges in development of emerging applications in all areas of computing technologies. The scope covers software and hardware; runs from complex, heterogeneous, reconfigurable, high-performance computing systems to networks, Internet of Things and wearables.

Besides technical papers, ADN publishes whitepapers, product information and advertisements from companies.

New Journal: Currently there is no industrial or developers’ journal focused on commercial application development, challenges, tools and available technologies. The new journal, “Application Developer News” aims to fill this gap.

Distributing: The ADN Journal and his Newsletter distributed over several mailing lists with around 40,000 email recipients. In addition, we use several professional networks, and groups with around 200,000 members.

Contributing: We are reaching out to seek your contributions, submitting papers, advertisements and companies’ info, and as well, your sponsorship for the journal of “Application Developer News”.

Call for Papers and Special Issues:

Journal of Application Developer News invites students, researchers, academic and industrial professionals to submit:

  • Manuscripts of academic and industrial research and technical papers, short papers, overviews, advertisements, whitepapers, product descriptions, ...
  • Proposals for organizing special issues of ADN. These may be special issues devoted for some particular application area, design methods, or discussions, and overviews of your work and, academic and industrial projects, including University Programs.

Each special Issue has up to three guest co-editors.

  • Interested parties should submit half page introduction, names, affiliations and short bios (half page) of co-editors
  • Co-editors are called to submit an Invited Paper, in addition, they may call authors to submit invited papers, up to 30% from the total number of accepted papers
  • Publishing Invited Papers is Free
  • For further details, contact the Editor-in-Chief

Publishing research and technical papers takes around three weeks. This includes reviewing, making decision and submitting final version. If the paper requires revision, you should add additional weeks for review and providing the final version.

Developing complex, commercial applications:

Developing complex, commercial applications is a main trend in all areas of computing technologies. Now, the developing of complex applications often migrates from purely software systems to software/hardware codesigned systems, into heterogeneous system, consisting of traditional processors, multi-core processors and reconfigurable fabric. This migration facilitates development of high-performance applications, often in a size of mobile devices. As a result, this new opportunity in computing system design technology makes it possible to develop new applications that amaze with their possibilities and that have not been possible in the past.

The next big things are Internet of Things (IoT) and Wearables. The Internet of Things and Wearables change our life. The number and range of connected devices is steadily increasing. The technologies conceived in the mobile industry are driving a convergence of several other industries — from machine-to-machine (M2M) to automotive and government. As the Internet of Things continues to grow, it is changing the nature of the devices that are attached and the design methods we use.

Developing complex systems requires multidisciplinary research and new visionary approaches.

Topics of interests include but are not limited to:

  • Design Methods
    • Heterogeneous Systems Architecture: Multicore, CPU, DSP, FPGA, …
    • High Level Design Tools for Heterogeneous Systems: OpenCL, Cuda, ImpulseC, Space Codesign, SystemC, ...
    • Design Systems, Tools and Models for Complex Applications, in Cloud Computing, Networking, Security, Internet of Things and in other Application Areas
    • Embedded Systems: Models of Embedded Reconfigurable and Heterogeneous Systems, Adaptable and Distributed Embedded Systems, High-Performance Embedded Systems
    • And more
  • Application areas
    • Defence, Military and Space Applications, Mobile Computing, Networking and Communication Systems
    • Hardware Accelerators and Software Support for Big Data, Internet Security, and Cryptography
    • Cloud Computing, Networking, Security, Internet of Things
    • High-Performance Systems in Oil and Gas Industry
    • High-Performance Heterogeneous Systems in Scientific Research
    • Digital Media and Digital Signal Processing, Automotive Industry and Autotainment
    • High-Performance Systems and Ultra-efficient Exascale Computing
    • High-Performance and Low-power Systems
    • High-Performance systems in Bio-sciences, Medical systems and Bio-Inspired Architectures
    • Applications and High-Performance Comptuting in Finance and Banking Sector
    • And more
