Call For Papers

23rd International Conference on Power and Timing Optimization and Simulation
Karlsruhe, Germany,
September 9 - 11, 2013

Call for Paper

co-located with VARI 2013, the 4th European Workshop on CMOS Variability.


PATMOS is the premier event covering all aspects of power-efficient circuits, microchips, computers and ICT infrastructures. PATMOS allows attendees to benefit from a wide range of topics covering research & development power-efficient methods of designing and running computing and sommunication architectures, subsystems, systems and infrastructures, also including heterogeneous systems.

Meanwhile, power-efficiency has become extremely important for many more areas far beyond the microchip and processor design. Energy-efficient ICT (Information and Communication Technology) infrastructures have become a critical economic factor. Already now, not only for data centers and extreme-scale supercomputers electricity consumption is often the largest cost factor. It has been predicted that during next decade, the electricity cost of running ourICT infrastructures will become unaffordable through growing by substantially more than an order of magnitude, if current trends continue.

The progress of traditional power efficiency R&D is by far too slow to break these current trends. We must discuss, how to extend our R&D landscape to detect and remove performance-efficiency barriers also by across layer approaches at and between abstraction layers and paradigm domains.
