Embedded Multicore Conference in Fukushima Postponed
LOS ALAMITOS, Calif., 30 March, 2011 – The Japanese earthquake and its aftermath have caused postponement of a second IEEE Computer Society conference.
The International Symposium on Embedded Multicore Systems-on-chip (MCSoC-11) was originally scheduled for 21-23 September, 2011, however has now been postponed until September 2012. Besides the IEEE Computer Society, the conference is sponsored by IEEE, the IEEE Technical Committee on Microprocessors and Microcomputers, and the IEEE Sendai Section.
The conference was slated for University of Aizu, Japan’s first computer science university, located in Aizu-Wakamatsu, in Fukushima prefecture, home to the stricken nuclear reactors. The university is open to its student researchers, however many are involved in earthquake relief efforts. The facilities sustained some damage in the quake, which prompted cancellation of commencement ceremonies and classes until the end of April.
MCSoC is the world's premier forum of leading researchers in the embedded multicore SoCs software, tools and applications design areas for academia and industries.
The 10th International Symposium on Autonomous Decentralized Systems (ISADS 2011), scheduled for 23-27 March in Tokyo and Hiroshima, Japan, has also been postponed. A new date has not been set. The conferences staff is monitoring other scheduled events in Japan and will provide updates as warranted.
