VLSI-SoC 2024 is the 32th in a series of international conferences sponsored by IFIP WG 10.5, IEEE CEDA, and IEEE CASS, which explore the state-of-the-art in the areas of Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) and System-on-Chip (SoC) design. The purpose of VLSI-SoC is to provide a forum to exchange ideas and showcase academic as well as industrial research in architectures, circuits, devices, design automation, verification, test, and security, within digital, analog, and mixed-signal systems. VLSI-SoC’24 will take place at hotel Barcelo, Tanger, Morocco, and it is organized by the Delft University of Technology.

VLSI-SoC 2024 will be held under the theme "SoCs for 5G Evolution and 6G"
exploring the design and optimization challenges around 5G+6G communication systems and devices embedded systems, security, low power circuits, powered by CMOS and beyond CMOS-technologies.

Areas of interest include (but not limited):

  • Analog, mixed-signal, RF, and sensors
  • Digital circuits, low-power design, SoC, NoC, and reconfigurable architectures
  • Design for AI acceleration and machine learning for SoC design
  • Circuits and systems for signal processing and communications
  • Modelling, simulation, verification, and prototyping
  • EDA tools and methodologies for IC design
  • Design for testability, reliability, and fault tolerance
  • Hardware security
  • IoT, embedded and cyber-physical systems: Architecture, design, and Software
  • Emerging computing paradigms: Quantum computing, cryogenic processors
  • 5G / 6G emerging technologies

Eligibility for Ph.D. Forum: The author must have completed at least one year of a Ph.D. program. Past Ph.D. scholars who have defended their thesis in or after June 2023 are also encouraged to submit.

Presentation: Posters will be introduced in the Ph.D. Forum Session (two minute time slot, one slide) and next will be presented in a full one hour Poster Session.

Publication: Accepted posters will be given two pages in the informal proceedings.

Grants for Ph.D. students: VLSI-SoC 2024 will provide a limited number of travel grants through the Technical Committee TC-10 and WG-10.5 of the IFIP. Grants are intended to support students from emerging and underdeveloped countries (by UN classification), who cannot be fully supported by their institutions.

How to Apply: Submit a two-page extended abstract of your research work in PDF format. Send submissions via the Molesystems platform of VLSI-SoC 2024.

Paper Format: Papers should be compliant with the guidelines for regular papers.
