Call for Papers

The 26th International Workshop on Logic & Synthesis

sponsored by ACM/SIGDA and by the IEEE

June 17 - June 18, 2017
Thompson Conference Center, Austin, TX

Co-located with the Design Automation Conference


The International Workshop on Logic and Synthesis is the premier forum for research in synthesis, optimization, and verification of integrated circuits and systems. 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 encourages early dissemination of ideas and results. The workshop accepts complete papers highlighting important new problems in the early stages of development, without providing complete solutions. The emphasis is on novelty and intellectual rigor.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: hardware synthesis and optimization; software synthesis; hardware/software co-synthesis; power and timing analysis; testing, validation and verification; synthesis for reconfigurable architectures; hardware compilation for domain-specific languages; design experiences. Submissions on modeling, analysis and synthesis for emerging technologies and platforms are particularly encouraged. The workshop format includes paper presentations, posters, invited talks, social lunch and dinner gatherings, and recreational activities. Accepted papers are distributed exclusively to IWLS participants.

Only complete papers with original and previously unpublished material are permitted. Submissions must be no longer than 8 pages, double column, 10-point font. 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.


Paper abstract submission: March 5, 2017
Full paper submission: March 12, 2017 - 11.59pm Anywhere on earth
Notification of acceptance: April 16, 2017
Final version due: May 14, 2017
