IWLS 2007 San Diego Area
16th International Workshop on Logic & Synthesis
Paradise Point Resort & Spa

San Diego, California, USA

May 30 - June 1, 2007 (Co-located with DAC).

The International Workshop on Logic and Synthesis provides a research forum for the exchange of ideas pertaining to all aspects of synthesis, optimization, and verification of integrated circuits and systems. The emphasis is on novelty and intellectual rigour. The workshop encourages early dissemination of ideas and results. Accepted papers are distributed only to IWLS participants.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):

Research on modeling, analysis and synthesis for emerging technologies and platforms is particularly encouraged. The workshop accepts complete papers as well as abstracts, highlighting important new problems in the early stages of development, without providing complete solutions.
