GLSVLSI 2010, Providence, Rhode Island, USA


Coming Soon!








The 20th edition of GLSVLSI will be held in Brown University Campus, Providence, Rhode Island, on May 16-18, 2010. Original, unpublished papers, describing research in the general area of VLSI are solicited.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 electronically and will be accessed by ACM Digital library.


The GLSVLSI advanced registration deadline is fast approaching! Please be sure to register by April 18th to obtain the discounted rate. Also, please note that HOTEL RESERVATIONS should be made by FRIDAY, April 30th, to secure the discounted rate of $99/night at the Providence Hilton Hotel (click on "Hotel Reservation Information" on the left menu). This rate of $99/night is SIGNIFICANTLY CHEAPER than advertised rates at any other hotel walking distance to the conference. Plus, by staying at the Hilton, you will receive complementary shuttle service to/from the conference site (on Brown campus) should you decide not to walk.

We will have easels set up for presenters to place their posters. 

Included with each easel will be a foam board 100 X 150 cm in size.  You can use pushpins to attach your poster to the foam board.  Pushpins will be provided by the conference organizers.

NEW: Student Travel Grants available! Eligible students must be presenting a paper at the Conference, and should submit a request to the General Chair of the Conference (Professor Iris Bahar) including an itemized list of all expenses, the paper that the student will present (title and ID), and any additional funds potentially available from other sources.

Successful Applicants should fill out the following form and submit it to the General Chair.


Program Tracks

  • VLSI Design: design of ASICs, microprocessors/micro-architectures, embedded processors, analog/digital/mixed-signal systems, NoC, interconnects, memories, and 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, CNT, SET, RTD, QCA, VLSI aspects of sensor and sensor network, and CAD tools for emerging technology devices and circuits.

  • Post-CMOS VLSI: evolutionary computing, optical computing, quantum computing, reversible logic, spin-based computing, biological computation, nanotechnology, molecular electronics, quantum devices, biologically-inspired computing. Emphasis should be on the analysis, novel circuits and architectures, modeling, CAD tools, and design methodologies.


  • Acceptance Notification: (tentative) February 12th, 2010 EXTENDED.
  • Camera-Ready Paper Due: March 8th, 2010 (FINAL!)


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. Previously published papers or papers currently under review for other conferences/journals should not be submitted and will not be considered. Electronic submission in PDF format to the website is required. Author and contact information (name, street/mailing address, telephone, fax, e-mail) must be entered during the submission process.

Paper Publication and Presenter Registration: Papers will be accepted for regular or poster presentation at the symposium. Every accepted paper MUST have at least one author registered to the symposium by MARCH 19th, 2010; the author is also expected to attend the symposium and present the paper.

Paper Format: Submissions should be in camera-ready two-column format, following the ACM proceedings specifications located at: and
the classification system detailed at:
