CLEAN Workshop



The 17th edition of ACM Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI (GLSVLSI) will be held in Stresa - Lago Maggiore, Italy, the first time in Europe. Original, unpublished papers, describing research in the general area of VLSI are solicited. Both theoretical and experimental research results are welcome. Proceedings will be published by the ACM and will be included in 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.
