                   ASYNC 2008 Call for Papers

14th IEEE International Symposium on Asynchronous Circuits and Systems
                     7th - 11th April 2008 

                    Newcastle upon Tyne, UK


The International Symposium on Asynchronous Circuits and Systems

a high-quality forum for scientists and engineers to present their

research findings.  Authors are invited to submit full papers on all

of asynchronous design.  Topics of interest include, but are not limited


 * Mixed synchronous/asynchronous architectures, interfaces, and

 * Design, synthesis and Verification techniques for GALS systems.

 * Synchronous-asynchronous interaction at different levels.

 * High-speed/low-power asynchronous logic, memories, and interconnects.

 * High-level design and synthesis of self-timed circuits.

 * Physical design of unclocked logic and pipelines.

 * Formal methods for correctness and performance analysis of
asynchronous designs.

 * Test, reliability, security, and radiation tolerance.

 * CAD for asynchronous design and validation.

 * Asynchronous System-on-Chip (SoC), System-in-Package (SiP).

 * Novel asynchronous architectures.

 * Asynchrony and latency tolerance in system-level design.

 * Motivating case studies, comparisons, and applications.

 * Embedded System Design with asynchronous

 * Asynchronous design for manufacturing.


Papers must be submitted via the conference web site. Papers will be

by the program committee and reviews will be based on scientific merit,

relevance, and presentation.  New idea papers are encouraged, and the

committee recognizes that such papers may contain less evaluation than
papers in

established areas. Accepted papers will be published in an IEEE
proceedings and 

distributed at the symposium.
