VLSI '99

X IFIP International Conference on Very Large Scale Integration

Hotel Meridien Park Atlantic
Lisboa, Portugal
December 1-4, 1999

CALL FOR PAPERS

SCOPE:
-----
VLSI '99 is the tenth in a series of biennial international
conferences on Very Large Scale Integration Systems and their design,
sponsored by IFIP TC 10 Working Group 10.5 (VLSI). Previous
conferences have taken place in Edinburgh, Trondheim, Tokyo,
Vancouver, Munich, Grenoble and Gramado.

LOCATION:
--------
VLSI '99 will be held in Lisbon. Lisbon, the capital of Portugal, is
a modern city which is undergoing profound transformations. Known as
the city of the seven hills, mother city of sailors and explorers
of seas, a diamond enchased on the bank of a river, the Tagus, Lisbon
has a lot to offer both in terms of history, culture and social life.
Portugal's geographical location makes Lisbon easily accessible for
travellers from all corners of the world. Its Atlantic climate, with
some Mediterranean influences is such that the thermal amplitude is
rarely high, with lots of sunny days even during the winter.

AREAS OF INTEREST:
-----------------
VLSI '99 will be organized around two tracks:

. VLSI Systems Design & Applications
. VLSI Design Methods and CAD.

Topics of interest include:
1 - Architectures, processor design, parallel architectures, signal
processing, communications, protocols, automotive,application
specific systems, custom circuits, video processing and
compression, multimedia applications.
2 - Hardware/Software Codesign: embedded systems, methodologies,
partitioning, reconfigurable circuits and subsystems.
3 - Mixed Analog-digital Design: data converters, modulators, RF analog
design, high speed analog, design automation tools.
4 - Low Power Design: circuit and system design techniques, CAD,
system applications.
5 - Micromechanical systems: integration of sensors, actuators,
micromachining, packaging and test.
6 - Design Automation Tools: specification, system level synthesis,
verification, simulation, layout synthesis, frameworks,
applications, test, performance.
7 - Implementation Techniques: gate arrays, module generators, FPGA's,
deep submicron.
8 - Wireless Communication Circuits: mobile telephone, wireless LANs,
DECT, GSM, wireless applications.

SUBMISSION OF PAPERS:
--------------------
Prospective authors are invited to submit a draft paper in English
with the following format. The cover page should specify:

- submission to VLSI '99,
- title,
- category (1-8) which most closely matches the paper contents
- authors and affiliation,
- mailing address, phone, fax, and e-mail address of the contact author,
- a brief abstract describing the work,
- at least three keywords which can specify typically the contents
of the work.

Papers should be formatted according to A4 or 8.5"x11", and the length
should not exceed 15 pages excluding the cover page. The technical
expositions should be directed to a specialist and should include an
introduction understandable to a non specialist that describes the
problem studied and the results achieved, focusing on the important
ideas and their significance.

All paper submissions, review and notification of acceptance will be
done electronically through the conference's WWW pages

http://algos.inesc.pt/vlsi99

The proceedings will be published as a book by Kluwer Publishing.
