================================================== ========
Special session: Design, Analysis and Tools for Integrated Circuits
and Systems

DATICS 2008

July 22-24, 2008 (Crete Island, Greece)

================================================== ========

Aims and Scope
--------------------------
The main target of the Special Session: DATICS 2008 of the WSEAS CSCC
multi-conference
(http://www.wseas.org/conferences/2008/greece/icc/) is to bring
together software/hardware
engineering researchers, computer scientists, practitioners and people
from industry to
exchange theories, ideas, techniques and experiences related to all
areas of design, analysis and
tools for integrated circuits (e.g. digital, analog and mixed-signal
circuits) and
systems (e.g. real-time, hybrid and embedded systems).
The special session also focuses on the field of formal methods and
low power design methodologies for integrated circuits.

Topics
----------
Topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:
* digital, analog, mixed-signal designs and test
* RF design and test
* design-for-testability and built-in self test methodologies
* reconfigurable system design
* high-level synthesis
* EDA tools for design, testing and verification
* low power design methodologies
* network and system on-a-chip
* application-specific SoCs
* specification languages: SystemC, SystemVerilog and UML
* all areas of modelling, simulation and verification
* formal methods and formalisms (e.g. process algebras, petri-nets,
automaton theory and BDDs)
* real-time, hybrid and embedded systems
* software engineering (including real-time Java, real-time UML and
performance metrics)
