NOCS 2021
15th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip
October 10 - 15, 2021, Virtual Conference
(Co-located with Embedded Systems Week 2021)



The International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS) is the premier
event dedicated to interdisciplinary research on on-chip,
package-scale, chip-to-chip, and datacenter rack-scale communication
technology, architecture, design methods, applications and systems.
NOCS brings together scientists and engineers working on
network-on-chip (NoC) innovations and applications from inter-related
research communities, including discrete optimization and algorithms,
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)
- Timing, synchronous/asynchronous communication
- NoC reliability issues and solutions
- Security issues and solutions in NoC architectures
- Power/thermal issues at NoC un-core and system-level
- Network interface issues and solutions
- Signaling and circuit design for NoC links and routers

### Communication Analysis, Optimization, & Verification
- NoC performance analysis and Quality of Service
- Modeling, simulation, and synthesis of NoC
- Verification, debug and test of NoC
- NoC design and simulation methodologies and tools
- Benchmarks, experiences on NoC-based hardware
- Communication-efficient algorithms
- Communication workload characterization & evaluation

### Novel NoC Technologies
- Optical, wireless, CNT, and other emerging technologies
- NoC for 2.5D and 3D packages
- Package-specific NoC design
- Network coding and compression solutions
- Approximate computing for NoC and NoC-based systems

### NoC for Intelligent Physical Systems
- NoC design for Deep Learning
- Mapping of existing and emerging applications onto NoC
- NoC case studies, application-specific NoC design
- NoC for FPGA, structured ASIC, CMP and MPSoC
- NoC designs for heterogeneous systems
- NoC for CPU-GPU and data-center-on-a-chip (DCoC)
- Scalable modeling of NoC
- Machine learning for NoC and NoC-based Systems

### NoC at the Un-Core and System-level
- Design of memory subsystem (un-core) including memory controllers,
caches, cache coherence protocols in NoC
- NoC for new memory/storage technologies
- NoC support for processing-in-memory
- OS support for NoC
- Programming models for NoCs
- Interactions between large-scale systems (datacenter, edge and fog
computing) and NoC-based building blocks

### Inter/Intra-Chip and Rack-Scale Network
- Unified inter/intra-chip networks
- Hybrid chip-scale and datacenter rack-scale networks
- All aspects of inter-chip and rack-scale network design


Electronic paper submission requires a full paper, up to 8
double-column ACM (sigconf) format pages, including figures and
references. The program committee will use a double-blind review
process to 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. Proposals for special sessions and demos are
invited. Paper submissions and demo proposals by industry researchers
or engineers to share their experiences and perspectives are also

**New in 2021**
Journal Special Issue: A selected number of accepted papers will be
invited to be published in an ACM JETC Special Issue.

The CFP for the follow-on special issue is here:

Please find the detailed submission instructions for paper submission,
special session, and demo proposals at the submission webpage.
