The deadline for the submissions are extended to the May 22, 2016
The best paper of VARI will be selected for a special issue on the Journal of Low Power Electronics - American Scientific Publishers. The best papers of PATMOS will be selected for a special issue on Integration, the VLSI Journal, by Elsevier.
PATMOS 2016 is co-located with VARI 2016 in Bremen, Germany. PATMOS has a history of more than 20 years and it was one of the first conferences world-wide to focus on low power.
The PATMOS 2016 objective is to provide a forum to discuss and investigate emerging challenges in methodologies and tools for the design of upcoming generations of integrated circuits and systems, including reconfigurable hardware such as FPGAs. The technical program will focus on timing, performance and power consumption as well as architectural aspects with particular emphasis on modeling, design, characterization, analysis and optimization. At the same time, power-efficiency has become extremely important for many more areas spreading far beyond this traditional R&D niche. Energy-efficient ICT (Information and Communication Technology) infrastructures are also a hot-topic that will be specially considered.
VARI 2016 is the 7th European Workshop on CMOS Variability. The increasing variability in CMOS transistor characteristics, as well as its sensitivity to environmental variations has become a major challenge to scaling and integration. This leads to major changes in the way that future integrated circuits and systems are designed. Strong links must be established between circuit design, system design and device technology. VARI meeting answers to the need to have a European event on variability in CMOS circuits and technologies, where industry and academia meet to discuss and investigate the CMOS process and environmental variability issues in methodologies and tools for the design of current and upcoming generations of integrated circuits and systems. The technical program will focus on performance and power consumption as well as architectural aspects like adaptability or resilience, with particular emphasis on modeling, design, characterization, analysis and optimization of variability. Digital, Analog, Mixed Signal and RF circuits are within VARI scope.
