The 31st edition of GLSVLSI will be held as an online conference.
Original, unpublished papers describing research in the general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 “Machine learning in CAD, EDA, and VLSI Design and Security”.
VLSI Design: ASIC and FPGA design, microprocessors/micro-architectures, embedded
processors, analog/digital/mixed-signal systems, NoC, SoC, IoT, interconnects, memories,
bio-inspired and neuromorphic circuits and systems, BioMEMs, lab-on-a-chip, biosensors,
implantable and wearable devices.
VLSI Circuits and Power Aware Design: analog/digital/mixed-signal circuits,
RF and communication circuits, chaos/neural/fuzzy-logic circuits, high-speed/low-power
circuits, temperature estimation/optimization, power estimation/optimization, machine-learning
for design and optimization of analog/digital/mixed-signal circuits, clock and power network optimization
through applied machine-learning.
Computer-Aided Design (CAD): hardware/software co-design, high-level synthesis,
logic synthesis, simulation and formal verification, layout, design for manufacturing,
CAD tools for biology and biomedical systems, algorithms and complexity analysis.
Testing, Reliability, Fault-Tolerance: digital/analog/mixed-signal testing,
reliability, robustness, static and dynamic defect- and fault-recoverability,
Emerging Computing & Post-CMOS Technologies: nanotechnology, molecular and quantum
computing, approximate and stochastic computing, sensor and sensor networks, post CMOS VLSI.

Paper Submission: Authors are invited to submit full-length (6 pages maximum), original, unpublished papers along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 http://www.glsvlsi.org
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.
