Mission: The International Workshop on Logic and Synthesis is dedicated to research in synthesis, optimization, and verification of integrated circuits. Research on logic synthesis for emerging technologies and for novel computing platforms, such as nanoscale systems and biological systems, is also strongly encouraged. The workshop accepts complete papers as well as abstracts highlighting important new problems in the early stages of development. The emphasis is on novelty and intellectual rigor.
The International Workshop on Logic and Synthesis is the premier forum for research in synthesis, optimization, and verification of integrated circuits. Research on logic synthesis for emerging technologies and for novel computing platforms, such as nanoscale systems and biological systems, is also strongly encouraged. The workshop accepts complete papers as well as abstracts, highlighting important new problems in the early stages of development, without providing complete solutions. The emphasis is on novelty and intellectual rigor.
Topics of interest include (but are not limited to): synthesis and optimization; power and timing analysis; testing, validation and verification; architectures and compilation; and design experiences. Submissions on modeling, analysis and synthesis for emerging technologies and platforms are also encouraged. Both complete papers as well as extended abstracts highlighting new problems and new topics of research are welcomed. Only original and previously unpublished material is permitted.
Accepted papers are distributed only to IWLS participants. The workshop format includes paper presentations, posters, invited talks, social lunch and dinner gatherings, and recreational activities.
The workshop will be held in Wozniak Lounge (Room 430-8 Soda Hall) at the University of California, Berkeley, Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Department.
This map has the location of the workshop and of the parking facility marked. We have arranged for a limited number of parking permits for Friday to park in the structure. You can also park without permit at Lower Hearst Structure, further west on Hearst Ave. (not too far away), or do street parking (max 2 h).
The workshop is on 3rd floor, which, if you enter on the east side of Soda, is entrance floor. You can also access Woziniak lounge (which we will be using) from the terrace on the northern side of Soda, accessible from Le Roy Ave.
The technical program consists of 22 regular talks, 3 invited talks, 1 special session and 4 poster presentations.
Special Session: "Software Verification and Testing"
