Call For Papers







The 24th edition of GLSVLSI will be held in Houston, USA.  Original, unpublished papers, describing research in the general area of VLSI are solicited.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.


  • Please find a map of Rice Campus here - indicates the locations of Hilton hotel and BRC (Conference Venue).

  • A PDF file with the program schedule, the rooms and a map of the facilities has been posted under the program schedule.

  • Dinner/Lunch: The Conference will provide at least 2 lunches on Wednesday and Thursday and a Dinner/Banquet on Wednesday night, included in the registration fee.

  • POSTERS: The organizers will provide boards, sized 8ft x 4ft, one side with cork and the other magnetic whiteboards. There will be space for 1 poster on each side of the board. The organizers will provide pushpins and magnets for the posters.

  • ADVANCED REGISTRATION RATE EXTENDED: *** Due to many requests, Advanced Registration Rates are Extended One Week through April 28 ***

  • HOTEL INFO: The Houston Hilton Medical Center rate of $140/night (plus tax) will end on April 27. Please reserve soon as this hotel fills up quickly!!!  We negotiated a very competitive area rate of $140 for GLSVLSI. The regular rate is almost twice at $275!! There is more complete info on the Hotel Information page. Please register with the GLS Group Code. See you soon in Houston!!

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 & Post-CMOS VLSI: nanotechnology, molecular electronics, quantum devices, biologically-inspired computing, spintronic technology, CNT, SET, RTD, QCA, VLSI aspects of sensor and sensor networks, etc. Emphasis should be on the analysis, novel circuits and architectures, modeling, CAD tools, and design methodologies for emerging technologies.
