The IEEE Symposium on VLSI (ISVLSI) 2019 explores emerging trends, novel ideas and basic concepts covering a broad
range of VLSI-related topics: from VLSI systems, tools and design methods at different abstraction levels, to bringing VLSI
design and methods into new technologies such as nano and molecular devices and burgeoning application areas, such as
hardware security, and artificial intelligence. 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 ISVLSI 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 ISVLSI proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society Press. Selected papers from
past editions have been subsequently published in special issues of top archival journals. ISVLSI has a good reputation of
bringing together well-known international scientists as invited speaks. ISVLSI 2019 will continue the momentum and
carry forward these well-established trends for further growth of the symposium.
