ICCD 2020: Call for Special Sessions and Tutorial Proposals

The International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD) encompasses a 
wide range of topics in the research, design, and implementation of 
computer systems and their components. ICCD's multi-disciplinary 
emphasis provides an ideal environment for developers and researchers to 
discuss practical and theoretical work covering systems and 
applications, computer architecture, verification and test, design tools 
and methodologies, circuit design, and technology. Researchers both from 
academia and industry are invited to submit proposals for special 
sessions. A special session could consist of a set of individual 
presentations or a panel. Special sessions should aim at providing a 
complementary experience with respect to the regular sessions. Hence, 
sessions focusing on hot topics of interest to the community that may 
also go beyond disciplines traditionally represented at ICCD are 
particularly welcome.

ICCD 2020 – Now Taking Place Virtually

The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our 
priority. After evaluating the current COVID-19 situation, the decision 
has been made to transform the in-person component of ICCD 2020 into an 
all-digital conference experience – ICCD 2020 will now be an online 
event. Therefore, ICCD 2020 will no longer take place in Hartford, 
Massachusetts, USA, and will instead take place virtually. The 
conference dates remain the same: October 18-21, 2020.  Proceedings will 
not be canceled, publications will continue as planned, and the 
registration fee will be adjusted accordingly.
Details will be provided in the coming weeks. For questions, please 
contact <khan at uconn.edu>.
