GLSVLSI 2011, EPFL, Lausanne, Switzerland


Coming Soon!








The 21st edition of GLSVLSI will be held in EPFL Campus, Lausanne, Switzerland, on May 2-4, 2011. Original, unpublished papers, describing research in the general area of VLSI are solicited.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.


  • Some slides from the Conference Program have been posted online! Check the Program Schedule to download the PDF slides.


  • The Keynotes from Monday and Tuesday have been posted online! Click on the Program Schedule to download the PDF slides.



  • The Conference Program has been updated with the rooms for all technical sessions, keynotes, etc. Please visit the Program to find the room of the session for which you are interest.


  • Information about Parking, and how to reach the rooms from the parking as well as the Metro, has been posted on the Visa, Travelling, Venue and Parking link on the left menu.


  • Hotel information has been posted (hotel link on the left menu).


  • For poster presentations at GLSVLSI 2011, we will have easels set up for presenters to place their posters. Included with each easel will be a foam board of 100 X 150 cm in size. Thus, pushpins can be used to attach your poster to the foam board. Pushpins will be provided by the conference organizers. You can design your poster to be horizontal or vertical, but the best layout will be provided if the design of the posters have a height of 150cm and width of 100cm.


  • The conference program is now online!  A detailed PDF version is also here. NEW


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.


  • Paper Submission Deadline: December 12th, 2010, Midnight Hawaii Time (GMT-12)
  • Special Session Proposals Deadline: November 28th, 2010
  • Acceptance Notification: February 15th, 2011
  • Camera-Ready Paper Due: March 1st, 2011
  • GLSVLSI 2011 Submission Site:

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; the author is also expected to attend the symposium and present the paper.

A selection of the best papers of GLSVLSI 2011 will be published in a special issue of Integration, The VLSI Journal. The selection will consider the reviews of the paper and the quality of the presentation at the conference.


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