Call for Papers & Programming Contest Contributions

The 27th International Workshop on Logic & Synthesis (IWLS 2018)
June 23 – June 24, 2018, San Francisco, CA
(co-located with DAC 2018)

Abstract Deadline: March 4, 2018
Paper Deadline: March 11, 2018


The International Workshop on Logic & Synthesis is the premier forum for research in synthesis, optimization, and verification of integrated circuits and systems. Research on logic synthesis for emerging technologies and for novel computing platforms, such as nanoscale systems and biological systems, is also strongly encouraged. The workshop encourages early dissemination of ideas and results. The workshop accepts complete papers highlighting important new problems in the early stages of development, without providing complete solutions. The emphasis is on novelty and intellectual rigor.

Topics of interest include, but are not limited to: hardware synthesis and optimization; software synthesis; hardware/software co-synthesis; power and timing analysis; testing, validation and verification; synthesis for reconfigurable architectures; hardware compilation for domain-specific languages; and design experiences. Submissions on modeling, analysis and synthesis for emerging technologies and platforms are particularly encouraged.

===== Important Dates =====
- Paper abstract submission March 4, 2018
- Full paper submission March 11, 2018 - 11.59pm Anywhere on Earth
- Notification of acceptance April 15, 2018
- Final version due May 13, 2018

===== Paper submission =====
Only complete papers with original and previously unpublished material are permitted. Submissions must be no longer than 8 pages, double column, 10-point font. Accepted papers are distributed only to IWLS participants.

The submission system is available at:

===== Programming Contest =====

Also in 2018, the IWLS organizing committee set up a programming contest and is seeking for contributions. This year’s contest runs under the theme “All the Best!” More information is available at
