Third International Symposium on
Advanced Research in
Asynchronous Circuits and Systems
April 7-10, 1997, Eindhoven, The Netherlands
PRELIMINARY CALL FOR PAPERS
Third International Symposium on Advanced Research in Asynchronous
Circuits and Systems,
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,
i.e. on (not exclusively):
- ASYNCHRONOUS CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS,
- including processors, controllers, buses
and bus interfaces, hybrid synchronous-asynchronous systems, and arbiters.
- ARCHITECTURES, CIRCUITS, AND TECHNIQUES FOR LOW POWER OR HIGH SPEED.
- TESTABILITY OF ASYNCHRONOUS CIRCUITS,
- including fault modeling,
design-for-testability, and test-pattern generation.
- QUALITY, RELIABILITY, AND ROBUSTNESS OF ASYNCHRONOUS CIRCUITS,
- including noise immunity, EM radiation, and metastability.
- CAD FOR ASYNCHRONOUS CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS,
- including high-level
(architectural) synthesis, sequential-circuit synthesis, (hazard-free)
logic synthesis, optimization, technology mapping, analysis (performance,
power), and use of commercially available ("synchronous") tools.
- NOVEL TECHNIQUES AND FUTURE OPPORTUNITIES FOR ASYNCHRONOUS CIRCUITS,
- including completion-detection techniques, deep sub-micron CMOS, exotic
implementation technologies, optical computing, and neural networks.
- FORMAL TECHNIQUES FOR ASYNCHRONOUS CIRCUITS AND SYSTEMS,
- including models
(Petri-nets, trace theory, etc.), calculi, design methods, and verification
Submitted papers should be no more than 15 pages in 11-point font
(or equivalent) with a 60-word abstract,
and should include a cover page with authors'
physical and e-mail addresses, phone, and FAX numbers.
should submit papers by October 18 (extended deadline), 1996
in one of the following forms:
