Paper submissions must be made through the online submission system at the ICCAD
web site: https://www.softconf.com/i/iccad2019
Regular papers will be reviewed as finished papers; preliminary submissions will be at a
Authors are asked to submit their work in two stages. In stage one (abstract
submission), a title, abstract, and a list of all co-authors must be submitted via the
ICCAD web submission site. In stage two (paper submission), the paper itself is
submitted. Authors are responsible for ensuring that their paper submission meets all
guidelines, and that the PDF is readable.
Deadline for Abstract Submissions
The submission abstract deadline is 5:00 pm Pacific Daylight Time (GMT -07:00),
Monday, April 1, 2019. No abstract submissions will be possible after this deadline.
Deadline for Paper Submissions The submission paper deadline is 5:00 pm Pacific
Daylight Time (GMT -07:00), Monday April 8, 2019.
We always have several authors contact the ICCAD office asking for a deadline
extension. Due to the limited review cycle, NO extensions are granted for ANY reason.
• All papers must be in PDF format only, with savable text.
• Each paper must be no more than 8 pages (including the abstract, figures,
tables, and references), double-columned, 9pt or 10pt font.
• Your submission must not include information that serves to identify the authors
of the manuscript, such as name(s) or affiliation(s) of the author(s), anywhere in the
manuscript, abstract, or in the embedded PDF data. References and bibliographic
citations to the author(s) own published works or affiliations should be made in the third
• Submissions not adhering to these rules, or determined to be previously
published (this includes pre-prints publicly available on personal or other websites, such
as arXiv, or publicly available internal memoranda with author names divulged) or
simultaneously submitted to another conference, or journal, will be summarily rejected.
Internal memoranda with full content not publicly available, and with author names not
divulged, may be submitted.
IMPORTANT: Final camera-ready versions must be identical to the submitted papers
with the following exceptions; inclusion of author names/affiliation, correction of
identified errors, addressing reviewer-demanded changes. No other modifications of
any kind are allowed including modification of title, change of the author list,
reformatting, restyling, rephrasing, removing figures/results/text, etc. The TPC Chairs
reserve the right to finally reject any manuscripts not adhering to these rules. A report
detailing all the revisions made must be submitted together with the final camera-ready
manuscript once any revision is conducted.
Paper templates are available at the ICCAD website; authors are recommended to
format their papers based on the templates. NOTIFICATION OF ACCEPTANCE
Authors will be notified of acceptance on or before Friday, June 21, 2019. Final paper
guidelines will be sent at that time.
The deadline for final papers is Friday, July 26, 2019. Accepted papers are allowed six
pages in the conference proceedings free of charge. Each additional page beyond six
pages is subject to the page charge at $150.00 per page up to the eight-page limit.
IEEE will hold the copyright for ICCAD 2019 proceedings. Authors of accepted papers
must sign an IEEE copyright release form for their paper.
At least one author per accepted paper must register by Friday, July 26, 2019, at the
discounted speaker’s registration rate. Failure to register will result in your paper being
removed from the conference proceedings. IEEE reserves the right to exclude a paper
from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not
presented at the conference.
Two papers, one from front-end and one from back-end, will be awarded with this
prestigious award. The winners will be chosen from nominated papers after a thorough
and competitive process by area-specific selection committees and announced at the
opening session.
One paper from 2009 and 2010 editions of ICCAD will be selected for this outstanding
recognition as evidenced by impact on the research community reflected in citations, on
the vendor community via its use in an industrial setting, or by initiating new research
venues during the past decade. Nominations from the community are welcome and can
be sent to to Rolf Drechsler, Technical Program Vice-Chair at drechsler@unibremen.de.

Chair Evangeline Young, at fyyoung@cse.cuhk.edu.hk
All ICCAD tutorials are embedded in the main technical program and free to conference
attendees, providing value to attendees and a good audience for presenters. Typical
tutorials run 1.5-2 hours, although longer tutorials (consisting of two session blocks of
1.5-2 hours each) may be considered. Tutorial suggestions should not exceed two
pages, should describe the topic and intended audience, and must include a list of
suggested participants with biographical data. Proposals should focus on the state-ofthe-art in a specific area of broad interest amongst ICCAD attendees. All tutorial
proposals should be sent to Tulika Mitra, Tutorial and Special Sessions Chair, at
Special Sessions typically run 1.5-2 hours. Special session proposals should focus on
in-depth treatment on a topic of timely interest to the ICCAD audience. Special session
proposals should not exceed two pages, should describe the topic and intended
audience, and must include a list of suggested participants with biographical data. All
special session proposals should be sent to Tulika Mitra, Tutorial and Special Sessions
Chair, at tulika@comp.nus.edu.sg.
Panel suggestions should not exceed two pages, should describe the topic and
intended audience, and should include a list of suggested participants. Panel
suggestions must include a bulleted outline of covered topics. All panel proposals
should be sent to Yuan Xie, Technical Program Chair at yuanxie@ucsb.edu.
Keynote proposals should include descriptions of suggested keynote speakers, and the
importance of the speech to the ICCAD audience. All keynote proposals should be sent
to David Pan, General Chair, at dpan@ece.utexas.edu.
ICCAD reserves the right to restructure all panel, special session, and tutorial
