Third International Symposium on Advanced Research in Asynchronous Circuits and Systems

Eindhoven University of Technology

April 7-10, 1997, Eindhoven, The Netherlands

Async97 is a successor to Async94 (Utah, USA) and Async96 (Aizu, Japan). Async97 is organized by Eindhoven University of Technology in cooperation with Philips Research Laboratories Eindhoven. Sponsorship of the IEEE Computer Society Technical Committee on VLSI and Esprit Working Group 21949 (ACiD-WG), and the cooperation of IFIP Working Group 10.5 are anticipated.

A major goal of the conference is to identify application domains where asynchronous circuit techniques are of practical interest and to articulate, quantify, and demonstrate their potential advantages (such as high speed, low power, low EM radiation, and high reliability). Special emphasis will be given to (industrial) applications, functional ICs, and mature CAD tools. Furthermore, we are interested in exploring technical innovations that may help improve the cost, quality, performance, or testability of the final product. To this end, papers are being sought on all aspects of the specification, design, verification, and testing of asynchronous circuits and systems.

TACAS'97 is the third of a series of international workshops on Tools and Algorithms for the Construction and Analysis of Systems. The previous editions were in Aarhus (DK, 1995) and Passau (D, 1996). As the name suggest, TACAS is focussed on software tools, architectures, and algorithms for specification, verification, analysis and construction of distributed and embedded systems. Participants of ASYNC97 may consider to attend TACAS'97 as well, which will take place at the University of Twente, The Netherlands from April 2-4, 1997.
