NoCArc 2023

16th International Workshop on Network on Chip Architectures
October 28/29, 2023 – Toronto, Canada

To be held in conjunction with the
56th Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture®

Network-on-Chips (NoCs) play a crucial role in determining the overall performance, energy usage, and reliability of many-core processing architectures. NoCs are part of an increasingly large number of products that we use every day – demonstrating that the NoC paradigm is practical, scalable, and can be adapted to support multiple computational paradigms, ranging from multiprocessing and reconfigurable computing to the emerging areas of AI and neuromorphic computing. The goal of the NoCArc Workshop is to provide a forum for researchers and practitioners to present and discuss innovative ideas and solutions related to the design, implementation, testing and application of NoCs and NoC based many-core architectures. Topics of specific interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

# Machine Learning (ML) and NoC-based systems
- ML for modeling and prediction
- ML based algorithms, optimization, and design methodologies
- Novel interconnections for domain specific ML architectures
- Memory access for the NoC-based ML systems

# NoC Architecture and Implementation
- Topologies, routing, and flow control
- Managing QoS
- Reliability and security issues
- Design methodologies and tools

# NoC Analysis, Optimization, and Verification
- Power, energy, and thermal issues
- Benchmarking and experience with NoC-based systems
- Modeling, simulation, and synthesis
- Debug, test and verification of NoCs and NoC-based systems

# NoC Applications
- Mapping of applications onto NoCs
- Real and industrial NoC case studies
- NoCs for FPGAs, structured ASICs, CMPs and MPSoCs
- NoC designs for heterogeneous systems

# NoC at System-level
- NoC support for designing and accessing memory subsystems
- OS support for NoCs
- Existing and novel programming models including shared memory, message passing, etc
- Large-scale systems (datacenters and supercomputers) with NoC-based systems as building blocks

# NoC at System-level
- NoC for quantum architectures
- Wireless, Optical, and RF
- NoCs for 3D and 2.5D packages including Network-in-Package (NiP)
- Approximate computing for NoCs and NoC-based systems
- Chip-to-Chip Interconnects

Besides regular papers, papers describing “work in progress” or incomplete but sound new innovative ideas related to the workshop theme are also encouraged.
