This Symposium explores emerging trends and novel ideas and concepts in the area of VLSI. The Symposium covers a range of topics: from VLSI circuits, systems and design methods to system level design and system-on-chip issues, to bringing VLSI experience to new areas and technologies like nano- and molecular devices, MEMS, and quantum computing. Future design methodologies will also be one of the key topics at the workshop, as well as new CAD tools to support these technologies. For the past two decades, the conference has been a unique forum for promoting visionary approaches to VLSI design process and has been an esteemed venue for presenting multidisciplinary research. The Symposium is bringing together leading scientists and researchers from academia and industry. The papers from this symposium have been published as the special issues of top archival journals. This fact indicates a very high quality of the symposium papers, and we are determined to keep a strong emphasis on this critical aspect of the conference. The symposium proceedings are published by IEEE Computer Society Press. The Symposium has established a reputation in bringing well-known international scientists as invited speakers, and this trend will continue.


Contributions are Sought in the Following Tracks

1.       Analog and Digital Circuits: analog/digital/mixed-signal circuits, RF and communication circuits, chaos/neural/fuzzy-logic circuits, high-speed/low-power circuits, interconnects, memory, PUF circuits, TRNG and security oriented circuits

2.       Computer-Aided Design (CAD) and Verification: Hardware/software co-design, logic and behavioral synthesis,  simulation and formal verification, physical design, signal integrity, power and thermal analysis

3.       Emerging and post-CMOS Technologies: nanotechnology, molecular electronics, quantum devices, optical computing, spin-based computing, biologically-inspired computing, CNT, SET, RTD, QCA, reversible logic, VLSI aspects of sensor and sensor network, and CAD tools for emerging technology devices and circuits.

4.       System Design and Security: Structured and Custom Design methodologies, microprocessors/micro-architectures for performance and low power, embedded processors, analog/digital/mixed-signal systems, NoC, power and temperature aware designs, Hardware security, Cryptography

5.       Testing, Reliability, Fault-Tolerance: digital/analog/mixed-signal testing, design for testability and reliability, online testing techniques, static and dynamic defect- and fault-recoverability, and variation-aware design.

The Symposium Program will include contributed papers and speakers invited by the Program Committee, as well as a poster session. The keynote addresses, panels and special sessions are planned as well. Authors should submit their original work using the web based submission system. Initial submissions to the conference are limited to six pages. All submissions should be in PDF format.

For Questions and Requests, please contact the Conference Organizers.

Paper Submission: Authors are invited to submit full-length (6 pages maximum), original, unpublished papers along with an abstract of at most 200 words. To enable blind review, the author list should be omitted from the main document. Papers violating length and blind-review criteria would be withdrawn from the review process.  Previously published papers or papers currently under review for other conferences/journals should not be submitted and will not be considered for publication.
