This track aims to bring together researchers from academia and industry to discuss technical challenges, exchange novel ideas, and report on their latest research in the VLSI design of integrated circuits and systems, with particular emphasis on emerging application trends such as IoT, AI, Industry 4.0, and the digital transformation. The track covers a broad range of VLSI areas including design, design methodologies, tools, testing, verification, reliability, and emerging technologies. The main topics of this track include, but are not limited to:


• Logic and high-level synthesis
• Physical design
• Embedded systems and processors
• System-on-Chip (SoC)
• FPGA prototyping
• Hardware/software co-design
• Processor architectures and multicore systems
• In-memory computing
• Approximate and stochastic computing
• AI and machine-learning hardware accelerators
• Neuromorphic computing
• Circuits and systems for signal processing and communication
• Adaptive and reconfigurable computing
• Analog, mixed-signal, and RF designs
• Testing, reliability, and fault tolerance
• Low-power and thermal-aware IC design
• IoT and micro-sensor interfaces
• Hardware security
• EDA algorithms, methodologies and tools
• Post-CMOS technologies and architectures
