Conference Overview

The IEEE A-SSCC 2018 (Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference) is an international forum for presenting the most updated and advanced chips and circuit designs in solid-state and semiconductor fields. The conference is supported by the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society and will be held in Asia. Further details on the conference and paper submission guidelines and templates will be available at the A-SSCC official website (or around the beginning of April 2018.

Conference Theme: Silicon Enabling Mobile Intelligence

The miniaturized silicon technology enabled big success in the realization of software solutions such as machine learning, big data, virtual and augmented realty in the image and speech recognition, the medical diagnosis and the autonomous driving automobiles. The current software solutions, however, consume huge power by employing cloud computers along with many graphic processing units and a large amount of memory. Nowadays, the integrated circuit design community tries to develop efficient low-power mobile intelligence solutions by taking challenges in the design of digital and analog circuits, processor architecture, and system for compact IoT devices.

Special Session

  1. Industry Program: This special category accepts only papers based on state-of-the-art industrial products. Strong emphasis on systems realized by silicon chips is encouraged. The papers should cover architecture, circuits, process technology, packaging and testing, including characterization results, die and system photos, as well as product demos.
  2. Student Design Contest: A student design contest is held among the accepted papers with system prototypes or measurement results of which operations can be demonstrated on-site. Refer to the web for further information.
  3. FPGA Session (NEW) : This session accepts papers describing FPGA implementation with novel algorithm and/or architecture. The demo results(eg. video or slide) must be included in the paper submission. The authors of accepted papers are required to participate in demo sessions.

Papers related to integrated circuits for intelligent systems are highly solicited. Papers on low-power and/or low-voltage approaches, signal integrity, noise, test, and manufacturability for all the above categories are welcomed. Measurement results are highly recommended, especially for analog, and RF categories. Design methodologies for SiP, and SoC are included in the scope of the conference; the papers only describing CAD tools and CAD algorithms are not considered. Authors must follow detailed instructions provided within the “Authors” section of the website, including the Authors Guide and Pre-publication Policy. The technical content beyond the abstract of the accepted paper must not be announced, published, or in any way put in the public domain prior to the Conference. Extended versions of selected papers from the Conference will be published in a Special Issue of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits.
