Our apologies for multiple emails on this CFP.

                                 CALL FOR PAPERS
                    27th IEEE Symposium on Computer Arithmetic
                       June 7 - 10, 2020, Portland, OR, USA


=== Scope ====

Since 1969, the ARITH symposia have served as the flagship conference for 
presenting scientific work on the latest research in computer arithmetic. 
Computer arithmetic is now driving the most important innovations and product 
directions in our industry, such as artificial intelligence and security.

Authors are invited to submit papers describing recent advances on all aspects
related to computer arithmetic, its applications or implementations. This 
includes, but is not restricted to, the following topics:

 * Foundations of number systems and arithmetic
 * Arithmetic processor design and implementation
 * Arithmetic algorithms and their analysis
 * Floating-point units, algorithms, and numerical analysis
 * Elementary and special function implementations
 * Test, validation, and formal verification techniques for arithmetic implementations
 * Power-efficient or low-energy arithmetic units and processors
 * Industrial implementation of arithmetic units and processors
 * Fault/error-tolerance in arithmetic implementations
 * Arithmetic for FPGAs and reconfigurable logic
 * Design automation for computer arithmetic implementations
 * Arithmetic, datapath design and numerics for artificial intelligence, machine/deep learning
 * Computer arithmetic for approximate computing
 * Computer arithmetic for security and cryptography
 * Arithmetic to enhance accuracy or reliability (multiple-precision, interval arithmetic, ...)
 * Arithmetic challenges in HPC and exascale computing (accuracy, reproducibility, ...)
 * Arithmetic for specific application domains (big-data analytics, signal processing, computer graphics, multimedia, computer vision, finance, ...)
 * Computer arithmetic in emerging technologies
 * Non-conventional computer arithmetic and applications

=== Specific Sessions ===

Besides inviting submissions for regular sessions (8 pages maximum papers),
ARITH-2020 will also propose specific sessions. All accepted submissions, 
whether regular full papers, specific topics, short or industry papers or 
student forum presentations, will have a presentation slot scheduled.

-- Short and Industry Papers --

For ARITH-2020, we are also inviting short papers (4 pages maximum) to 
describe industry applications, work-in-progress ideas, or interim results. 

-- Specific Topic Sessions --

We are also inviting people to co-organize a few sessions on specific topics. 
Please identify the targeted session for submissions (e.g. use the 
anonymous author field). Submissions (4-page and 8-page) must comply to 
the procedure below and will be reviewed as all other types of sessions.

          Co-organizers have to contact the PC Chairs 
           before Dec. 30th, 2019 to propose a topic.

-- Student Forum --

We invite students at any level to present their work in an informal 
session without papers in the proceedings.

=== Procedure for submission for all sessions ===

An abstract submission deadline has been set to January 8th. This
initial submission must include title, author(s), keywords and abstract.
The full paper is due on January 22nd.

Submission site: https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=arith2020

Papers under review elsewhere are not acceptable for submission to
ARITH-2020. A double-blind peer review policy will be enforced. Please,
remove authors' names, acknowledgments or any obvious references to the
authors before submission. By submitting a paper you implicitly confirm
you are solely submitting it to ARITH-2020. The final submissions of
accepted regular session papers cannot exceed 8 pages (NO extra pages)
using the IEEE Computer Society Conference format (two columns).
However, for review, authors may submit a paper with a maximum of 20
pages, 12pt font size, single column and double spacing. The final
submissions for short and industry papers cannot exceed 4 pages (NO
extra pages) using the IEEE Computer Society Conference format (two
columns). For review, the paper may have up to 10 pages, in 12pt font
size, single column and double spacing.
