“GLSVLSI 2020 is postponed to September 8-11 due to the outbreak of coronavirus in China and various travel restrictions. The conference will be held as an online conference.”

The 30th edition of the ACM Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI (GLSVLSI) will be held in Beijing, China. Original, unpublished papers describing research in the general areas of VLSI and hardware design are solicited. Stay tuned for more information.

In addition to the traditional topic areas of GLSVLSI listed below, papers are solicited for a special theme of “In-Memory Processing for Future Electronics”.

Author Guidelines

Paper Submission: Authors are invited to submit full-length (6 pages maximum), original, unpublished papers along with an abstract of at most 200 words.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, affiliation, mailing address, telephone, fax, e-mail) must be entered during the submission process.

Paper Format (camera-ready): Submissions should be in camera-ready two-column format, following the ACM proceedings specifications located at: ACM Template and the classification system detailed at: ACM 2012 Class

For LaTeX users, please use the ACM sigconf template.

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 the time the camera-ready paper is submitted; at least one of the authors is also expected to attend the symposium and present the paper.
