Call For Papers

January 4-8, 2016, Kolkata, India

Apologies if you receive multiple copies of this email. The 29th International Conference on VLSI Design and the 15th International Conference on Embedded Systems will bring together industry and academia to present front-end technology under the theme of "Technologies for a Safe and Inclusive World (TSIW)".

The convergence of technology with modern life has reached a state where dependence of human life on semiconductor technology is ubiquitous. Today semiconductor technology is poised to look beyond its traditional bastions of application with pervasive impact on transportation, energy, disaster management, environment, and healthcare.

The Technical tracks will be grouped under the theme track and the three broad categories namely, Design Methodologies and Technology, Design Tools and EDA and Embedded System Design and Tools. The conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society Press. Selected papers from this conference will also be published as special issues of top archival journals.

Authors are invited to submit full-length (6 pages maximum) in IEEE CS proceedings format, original, unpublished papers with an abstract (200 words maximum) under the tracks listed below. To enable double blind review, the author list should be omitted from the main document. Papers violating length and blind-review criteria would be excluded from the review process. Previously published papers or papers currently under review for other conferences/journals should not be submitted and will not be considered for publication.
