General Scope

On-chip parallel and network-based system design to achieve functionality
with low energy-speed product requires larger device count SoC design, multi
block function design methodology, architectures and energy evaluation
schemes. Such systems, which are emerging as the architecture of choice for
future high performance processors, require high performance interconnects
which are necessary to satisfy the data supply needs of all cores. This
session is dedicated to research on on-chip communication technology,
architecture, design methods and applications, bringing together scientists
and engineers working on on-chip innovations from related research
communities, including parallel computer architecture, networking, and
embedded systems. Original papers describing new and previously unpublished
results are solicited on all aspects of on-chip parallel and networked
system technology. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

.         On-chip network architecture (topology, routing, arbitration, ...)

.         Network design for 3D stacked logic and memory

.         Processor allocation and scheduling in CMPs    

.         Mapping of applications onto NoCs

.         NoC reliability issues

.         OS and compiler support for NoCs

.         Performance and power issues in NoCs

.         Metrics, benchmarks, and trace analysis for NoCs

.         Multi/many-core workload characterization and evaluation

.         Modeling and simulation of on-chip parallel and networked systems

.         Synthesis, verification, debug and test of SoCs

.         NoC support for memory and cache access

.         SoC and NoC design methodologies and tools

.         Network support for SoC quality of service

.         On-chip systems for FPGAs and structured ASICs

.         NoC support for CMP/MPSoCs

.         Floorplan-aware NoC architecture optimization

.         Application-specific NoC design

.         Networked SoC case studies

.         On-chip parallel programming models and tools

.         Reconfigurable SoCs and NoCs

.         Memory system design and optimizations for SoCs

.         Early reports on system prototypes details

.         SIMD parallel VLSI computing

.         I/O interconnects and support for SoCs


Proceeding and Special Issue 

Proceedings will be published by IEEE Computer Society
<http://www.computer.org/portal/web/cscps/home>  in the same volume of the
main track. Authors of accepted papers are expected to register and present
their papers at the Conference. Conference proceedings will be indexed,
among others, by IEEE explore, DBLP, Scopus ScienceDirect, and ISI Web of

Selected high-quality papers from the session will be considered to appear
in  <http://www.pdp2015.org/specialsessions/ocpnbs/SI.pdf> Elsevier Journal
of Computers & Electrical Engineering


Paper Submissions 

Prospective authors should submit a full paper not exceeding 8 pages in the
l> IEEE Conference proceedings format (IEEEtran, double-column, 10pt).
Double-bind review: the first page of the paper should contain only the
title and abstract; in the reference list, references to the authors' own
work should appear as "omitted for blind review" entries.
