Call for Papers
*9th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on *
*Networks-on-Chip *

*September 28 – 30, 2015*
*Vancouver, Canada*

The International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS) is the premier event
dedicated to interdisciplinary research on on-chip, chip-scale, and
multichip package scale communication technology, architecture, design
methods, applications and systems. NOCS brings together scientists and
engineers working on NoC innovations and applications from inter-related
research communities, including computer architecture, networking, circuits
and systems, packaging, embedded systems, and design automation. Topics of
interest include, but are not limited to:

*NoC Architecture and Implementation*

   - Network architecture (topology, routing, arbitration)
   - NoC Quality of Service
   - Timing, synchronous/asynchronous communication
   - NoC reliability issues
   - Network interface issues
   - NoC design methodologies and tools
   - Signaling & circuit design for NoC links

*NoC Analysis and Verification*

   - Power, energy & thermal issues(at the NoC, un-core and/or system-level)
   - Benchmarking & experience with NoC-based hardware
   - Modeling, simulation, and synthesis of NoCs
   - Verification, debug & test of NoCs
   - Metrics and benchmarks for NoCs

*Novel NoC Technologies*

   - New physical interconnect technologies, e.g., carbon nanotubes,
   wireless NoCs, through-silicon, etc.
   - NoCs for 3D and 2.5D packages
   - Package-specific NoC design
   - Optical, RF, & emerging technologies for on-chip/in-package

*NoC Application*

   - Mapping of applications onto NoCs
   - NoC case studies, application-specific NoC design
   - NoCs for FPGAs, structured ASICs, CMPs and MPSoCs
   - NoC designs for heterogeneous systems, fused CPU-GPU architectures, etc
   - Scalable modeling of NoCs

*NoC at the Un-Core and System-level *

   - Design of memory subsystem (un-core) including memory controllers,
   caches, cache coherence protocols & NoCs
   - NoC support for memory and cache access
   - OS support for NoCs
   - Programming models including shared memory, message passing and novel
   programming models
   - Issues related to large-scale systems (datacenters, supercomputers)
   with NoC-based systems as building blocks

*On-Chip Communication Optimization*

   - Communication efficient algorithms
   - Multi/many-core communication workload characterization & evaluation
   - Energy efficient NoCs and energy minimization

Electronic paper submission requires a full paper, up to 8 double-column
IEEE format pages, including figures and references. The program committee
in a double-blind review process will evaluate papers based on  scientific
merit, innovation, relevance, and presentation.Submitted papers must
describe original work that has  not been published before or is under
review by another conference or journal at the same time. Each  submission
will be checked for any significant similarity to previously published
works or for simultaneous  submission to other archival venues, and such
papers will be rejected. Please see the paper submission  instructions for
details.This year will also include one or more industrial sessions on the
architecture of future  NoC platforms. The objective of these sessions is
to provide a forum for industry leaders to share their  experiences and
perspectives on the technical challenges facing future platforms and
discuss potential  solutions. Check the submission page for details on
submissions to this session. These sessions will feature a  small number of
papers (4-6) covering experiences from industrial design and development.
Proposals for tutorials, special sessions, and panels are also invited.
Please see the detailed submission  instructions for paper, tutorial,
special sessions, and panel proposals at the submission page.
