Welcome to the International Workshop on Logic and Synthesis (IWLS) web page!

IWLS provides an international, friendly, and relaxed forum to promote research and exchange ideas about all aspects of IC synthesis, optimization, and verification. The workshop encourages early dissemination of ideas and results.

What's New?

Technical Program -- IWLS 2001 has a very exciting program with 34 presentations and 24 posters.

Registration -- Details are now available.

Focus Groups -- Also new this year is a "collaborative problem solving" exercise. Attendees will be divided into groups, each tackling a challenging problem submitted through the web and selected by the focus group chair. The EDA community is encouraged to submit possible logic and synthesis problems through www.iwls.org/Problems.html

10th Anniversary -- We celebrate this year the 10th anniversary of IWLS. Several members of the TPC and the IWLS community are currently planning a book surveying the advancements in the field over the past 20 years.

Name Change -- Our name has changed from the International Workshop on Logic Synthesis to the International Workshop on Logic AND Synthesis. The name change reflects the change in the industry and our paper submission in the past few years. The submissions now spans a wide range of topic related to logic and synthesis. The name change also reflects the workshop organizers desire to expand the workshop to include all aspects of logic and synthesis.

When and Where?

This year's workshop will be held at Granlibakken Conference Center, a wooded 74 acre resort minutes from Lake Tahoe. This location is a favorite among past attendees. The workshop will be June 12-15, 2001, the week right before the Design Automation Conference. This also is a popular time slot for many of the workshop attendees.

For any questions, please contact any members of the technical committee, or send email to webmaster@iwls.org.
Please join us this year and celebrate IWLS's 10th anniversary.
