|15th International Workshop on Logic & Synthesis|
|Vail Cascade Resort & Spa|
Vail, Colorado, USA
|June 7-9, 2006|
The International Workshop on Logic and Synthesis provides an international forum to promote research and exchange ideas about all aspects of integrated circuit and system synthesis, optimization, and verification. The workshop encourages early dissemination of ideas and results. Accepted papers are distributed only to IWLS participants.
Topics of interest include architectures and compilation, synthesis and optimization, power and timing analysis, design validation and verification, and design experiences, all applied at system description levels ranging from transistor-level to hardware-software interfaces. Implementation might be in synchronous or asynchronous CMOS, or any emerging technology. Submissions on modeling, analysis and tools targeting emerging technologies and platforms are particularly encouraged.
Authors may submit complete papers for their proposed presentation. These
must be no longer than 8 pages, double column, and in a 10-point font.
We also encourage submissions of extended abstracts in the early stages
of research that highlight important new problems, perhaps without providing
complete solutions. Only electronic submissions will be accepted: submission
will be accepted at this website. For questions, contact IWLS_pcchair at sigda.org.
For travel grants, apply to ACM/SIGDA travel grant
For the first time, the workshop includes a programming challenge sponsored by IEEE CEDA for students. The challenge is to implement one or more logic optimization algorithms on the industrial EDA database OpenAccess and to use the OA Gear infrastructure. A jury will select significant contributions which are awarded with travel grants and one cash prize. For more information, see the programming challenge home page.
