ISVLSI 2020 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 such as security, artificial intelligence and cyber-physical systems. The symposium will also emphasize future design methodologies and new CAD tools to support them as key topics. 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 2020 will continue the momentum and carry forward these well-established trends for further growth of the symposium.
