GLSVLSI 2012, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA


Coming Soon!








The 22nd edition of GLSVLSI will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA, on May 3-4, 2012. Original, unpublished papers, describing research in the general area of VLSI are solicited.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.





For poster presentations at GLSVLSI 2012, we will have foam-core boards and easels set up for presenters to place their posters. Included with each easel will be a foam board of A0 (48in x 34in) 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.


  • Updated information for authors of accepted papers:

The organizers would like to thank the authors of accepted papers for uploading their papers on, using the instructions they received through email. Sheridan Printing will review the files and will request any additional information necessary (including updates on the copyright codes). Furthermore, Sheridan will send an email to the authors with links to an online copyright form (before March 5), with tentative deadline for submitting the copyright form by March 11th, 2012. Here are a few formatting instructions:


1. Please, verify that your paper follows the template and instructions included in

2. In particular, your camera-ready version must include the Copyright information on the first page. The Latex code for that is:

\conferenceinfo{GLSVLSIí12,} {May 3--4, 2012, Salt Lake City, Utah, USA.}
\widowpenalty = 10000

3. After that, please expect an email from with your unique assigned ID#, individual link to submit, and a list of items to address/fix on your paper.


  • Congratulations to the authors of accepted papers and posters. We will use for the authors to submit the final camera ready paper. When the authors login to the GLSVLSI 2012 web site now, they should see an additional tab at the top of the page labeled "Proceedings." Under that Proceedings tab, there will be an option to upload the final paper.

  • Please let us know if there are any problems accessing the site.

  • Instructions for conference registration will follow shortly when ACM has the registration web page available.

  • We also expect that information on the copyright form will follow shortly. Please also contact us if you may need an invitation letter for a visa to attend the conference.

  • Please still try to upload your paper by March 1, 2012. There is an extension on the author registration. You will receive an email when this is ready.

  • Paper submission deadline extended by one week. New Deadline : December 21st, 2011.

  • The preliminary call for papers has now been posted!

  • You can submit your papers here: Paper Submission Site

  • The 22nd GLSVLSI will be held in Salt Lake City, Utah, between May 3-4 in 2012!

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: 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.



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