The 16th edition of GLSVLSI will be held on April 30, 2006 - May 2, 2006 in Philadelphia, Pennsylavnia. Original, unpublished papers, describing research in the general area of VLSI. Both theoretical and experimental research results will be presented at this year's conference. Proceedings will also be published by the ACM and will be included on the SIGDA compendium CD-ROM.

Program Tracks

  • VLSI Design: design of ASICs, microprocessors and micro-architectures, embedded processors, analog/digital/mixed-signal systems, multi-chip modules, FPGAs.
  • VLSI Circuits: analog/digital/mixed-signal circuits, RF and communication circuits, chaos/neural/fuzzy-logic circuits, high-speed/low-power circuits.
  • Computer-Aided Design (CAD): hardware/software co-design, logic and behavioral synthesis, logic mapping, simulation and formal verification, layout (partitioning, placement, routing, floorplanning, compaction), algorithms and complexity analysis.
  • Low Power and Power Aware Design: circuits, micro-architectural techniques, thermal estimation and optimization, power estimation methodologies, and CAD tools.
  • 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.
  • Emerging Technologies: nanotechnology, molecular electronics, quantum devices, biologically-inspired computing, single electron transistors, resonant tunneling devices, VLSI aspects of sensor and sensor network, and CAD tools for emerging technology devices and circuits.

Best Student Paper Award

A "Best Student Paper Award" will be voted on by the technical program committee. Only papers with a student as first author will be eligible. A laptop, generously donated by Intel, will be awarded to the winner at the symposium.


The conference is held at the Holiday Inn in historic downtown Philadelphia; one of the Nation's most historic areas and birthplace to US history. Please make sure you make your reservations early and that you use "ACM" as your group code to receive a discount.
