The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss and investigate the emerging problems in the design methodologies and CAD-tools for the new generation of IC technologies. A major emphasis of the technical program is on speed and low-power aspects with particular regard to modeling, characterisation, design, and architectures. The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to design and CAD aspects of:
  • Low Power design: high performance low power systems, ultra low power systems, special architectures 
  • Modeling and synthesis: timing, power, low-voltage, interconnect, crosstalk 
  • Timing design: clocking, synchronization, asynchronous and self timed systems, adiabatic switching 
  • Optimization: low voltage low power logic families, logic parallelization, pipelining, fast low power arithmetic 
  • Physical design: module generation, library optimization and characterization, area estimation 
  • Physical test and characterization: low VT low voltage process, SOI, IDDQ, models and parameter extraction, experimental design for process control 
  • Design methods and CAD tools: for low voltage low power design, high speed circuits 
  • Trade-offs between devices, architectures and technologies, bench mark comparison. 

Call for Contributions

Contributions are invited for regular presentations and discussion sessions.

Prospective authors for regular presentations are invited to submit their complete paper including a 100-word abstract and illustrations in A4 camera ready format, not exceeding 10 pages. Electronic submission is required and should follow the style for the final submission. Check the web-page for complete author and submission instructions. 
Submitted papers will be reviewed formally and anonymously by several reviewers. Please do not identify the author's names and their affilation on your submission!

Proposals for the panel sessions and special sessions are encouraged and must be received also not later than April 14, 2000.
