Sponsored by the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) and the ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (SIGDA).

The International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design (ISLPED) is the premier forum for presentation of innovative research in all aspects of low power electronics and design, ranging from process technologies and analog/digital circuits, simulation and synthesis tools, system-level design and optimization, to system software and applications. Specific topics include, but are not limited to, the following three main tracks and sub-areas:

1. Technology, Circuits, and Architecture

1.1. Technologies
Low-power technologies for Device, Interconnect, Logic, Memory, 2.5/3D,
Cooling, Harvesting, Sensors, Optical, Printable, Biomedical, Battery, and Alternative energy storage devices.

1.2. Circuits
Low-power digital circuits for Logic, Memory, Reliability, Clocking, Power
gating, Resiliency, Near-threshold and Sub-threshold, Variability, and Digital
assist schemes; Low-power analog/mixed-signal circuits for Wireless, RF, MEMS,
AD/DA Converters, I/O, PLLs/DLLS, Imaging, DC-DC converters, and Analog assist

1.3. Logic and Architecture
Low-power logic and microarchitecture for SoC designs, Processor cores
(compute, graphics and other special purpose cores), Cache, Memory,
Arithmetic/Signal processing, Cryptography, Variability, Asynchronous design,
and Non-conventional computing.

2. CAD, Systems, and Software

2.1. CAD Tools and Methodologies
CAD tools and methodologies for low-power and thermal-aware design addressing
power estimation, optimization, reliability and variation impact on power, and
power-down approaches at all levels of design abstraction: physical, circuit,
gate, register transfer, behavior, and algorithm.

2.2. Systems and Platforms
Low-power, power-aware, and thermal-aware system design and platforms for
microprocessors, DSPs, embedded systems, FPGAs, ASICs, SoCs, heterogeneous
computing, data-center power delivery and cooling, and system-level power
implications due to reliability and variability.

2.3. Software and Applications
Energy-efficient, energy-aware, and thermal-aware system software and
application design including scheduling and management, power optimizations
through HW/SW interactions, and emerging low power applications such as
approximate and brain-inspired computing, the Internet-of-Things (IoT),
wearable computing, body-area/in-body networks, and wireless sensor networks.

3. Industrial Design Track (New Initiative for 2015)

3.1. Industry Perspectives
For the first time, ISLPED’15 solicits papers for an “Industrial Design” track
to reinforce interaction between the academic research community and industry.
Industrial Design track papers have the same submission deadline as regular
papers and should focus on similar topics, but are expected to provide a
complementary perspective to academic research by focusing on challenges,
solutions, and lessons learnt while implementing industrial-scale designs. In
addition to purely hardware-focused papers, papers describing power
optimizations through an interaction of hardware and software are also welcome.

Submissions should be full-length papers of up to 6 pages (PDF format, double-column, US letter size, using the IEEE Conference format, available at, including all illustrations, tables, references, and an abstract of no more than 250 words. Submissions must be anonymous. Submissions exceeding 6 pages or identifying the
authors, either directly or through explicit references to their prior work, will be automatically rejected. More information on paper submission can be found at

Submitted papers must describe original work that has not been published/accepted or currently under review by another journal, conference, symposium, or workshop at the same time. Accepted papers will be published in the Symposium Proceedings and included in IEEE Xplore and the ACM Digital Library. ISLPED’15 will present two Best Paper Awards based on the ratings of reviewers and a panel of judges.

There will be several invited talks by industry and academic thought leaders on key issues in low power electronics and design. The Symposium may also include embedded tutorials to provide attendees with the necessary background to follow recent research results, as well as panel discussions on future directions in low power electronics and design. Proposals for invited talks, embedded tutorials, and panels should be sent by email to the ISLPED’15 Technical Program Co-Chairs, Vijay Raghunathan ( and Ruchir Puri ( by the deadline listed above.
