The 23rd edition of GLSVLSI will be held in Paris, France, on May 2-3, 2013. Original, unpublished papers, describing research in the general area of VLSI are solicited.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.

ACM Europe is organizing an event similar to the Federated Computing Research Conference (FCRC) that is held in the US every four years. The goal of the ACM European Computing Research Congress (ACM ECRC) is to co–locate multiple (ACM) European research conferences, workshops, and/or research meetings to create a significant gathering of European computing researchers. The ACM ECRC general plenary sessions address important issues in European computing research. The general receptions will foster an enhanced level of networking among European researchers, a tangible contribution of ACM Europe to the computing community.

ACM ECRC is being built around SIGCHI's 2013 CHI conference that will be held at the Palais des Congrès in Paris. CHI'13 begins Saturday, April 27, 2013 and runs through Thursday, May 2, 2013.

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 15th, 2012 EXTENDED: December 22nd (Abstract), December 28th (FINAL VERSION).
  • Acceptance Notification: February 15th, 2013
  • Camera-Ready Paper Due: February 27th, 2013
  • GLSVLSI 2013 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.

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