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 highlighting important new problems in the early stages of development. 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. Only complete papers with original and previously unpublished material are permitted.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.
