Symposium Scope:

The Symposium explores emerging trends and novel ideas and concepts covering a broad range of topics in the area of VLSI: from VLSI circuits, systems and design methods, to system level design and system-on-chip issues, to bringing VLSI methods to new areas and technologies like nano- and molecular devices, MEMS, and quantum computing. Future design methodologies are also one of the key topics at the Symposium, as well as new EDA tools to support them. Over three decades the Symposium has been a unique forum promoting multidisciplinary research and new visionary approaches in the area of VLSI, bringing together leading scientists and researchers from academia and industry.

The Symposium Proceedings are published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Papers from past ISVLSI editions have been subsequently published in special issues of top archival journals which indicates the general high quality of the papers. The Symposium has established a reputation in bringing together well-known international scientists as invited speakers; the emphasis on high quality will continue at this and future editions of the Symposium.


Contributions are Sought (but not limited to) in the Following Areas:

Emerging Trends in VLSI, Nanoelectronics, Molecular, Biological and Quantum Computing, MEMS, VLSI Circuits and Systems, Field-programmable and Reconfigurable Systems, System Level Design, System-on-a-Chip Design, Application-Specific Low Power, VLSI System Design, System Issues in Complexity, Low Power, Heat Dissipation, Power Awareness in VLSI Design, Test and Verification, Mixed-Signal Design and Analysis, Electrical/Packaging Co-Design, EDA, Physical Design, creating and sharing IP.
The Symposium Program will include contributed papers and speakers invited by the Program Committee, as well as a poster session. 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Paper Submission: Authors are invited to submit full-length (6 pages maximum), original, unpublished papers along with an abstract of at most 200 words.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 Papers violating length and blind-review criteria would be withdrawn from the review process.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.


European Projects Section: The ISVLSI 2017 conference will include an extra section of the Proceedings dedicated to European Projects. Coordinators of EU funded projects addressing ISVLSI relevant topics are invited to submit a paper describing the recent accomplishments, preliminary ideas, or work in progress scenarios of the projects. Papers will be peer-reviewed as regular ISVLSI submissions. The deadline for European Projects papers is the deadline of the conference. During the submission, the “Research Projects” track should be selected. For more information, please contact: Georgios Keramidas (
