Call for papers
March 25, 2002
workshop is the twelfth in a series of international workshops having
been held in several places in Europe (visit the web site http://www.patmos-conf.org).
PATMOS has over the years evolved into a well established and outstanding
series of open European events on power and timing aspects of integrated
circuit design. The increased interest, especially in low-power
design, adds further momentum to the interest in this workshop.
Despite its growth, the workshop can still be considered as an informal
but very focused conference, featuring high-level scientific presentations
together with open discussions and panel sessions in a free and
easy environment. In the year 2002, the venue will be in Sevilla,
Spain, organized by the Microelectronics Spanish Center (IMSE-CNM)
and the University of Seville. Seville is the major city in the
south-west of Spain and one of its richest historic, cultural and
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, characterization, design, and architectures.
The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to design
and CAD aspects of:
power design: high performance low power systems, ultra low
power systems, special architectures.
timing, power, low-voltage, interconnect, crosstalk.
design: clocking, synchronization, asynchronous and self timed
systems, adiabatic switching.
low voltage low power logic families, logic parallelization, pipelining,
fast low power arithmetic.
design: module generation, library optimization and characterization,
test and characterization: low VT low voltage process, SOI,
IDDQ, models and parameter extraction, experimental design for
methods and CAD tools: for low voltage low power design, high
between devices, architectures and technologies, benchmark comparison.
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 publication. Check the
for complete author and submission instructions. Submitted papers
will be reviewed formally and anonymously by several reviewers.
for the panel sessions and special sessions are encouraged and must
be received also not later than March 25, 2002.
