ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES)

Special Journal Issue on Advances in Physical Design Automation - Call for Papers

The extensions of other conference papers and original works are welcome.

This special issue seeks recent advances and innovations for More Moore and More-than-Moore in a physical design context. In addition to submissions from academia, submissions from industry are also welcome. Research papers with an emphasis on the following topics are of particular interest: placement, routing, and ECO; advances towards analog design automation; physical design for heterogeneous integration; physical design for advanced lithography technology; hardware security-related physical design; physical design with multicore, GPU, FPGA, and AI hardware acceleration; and physical design for emerging technologies (autonomous systems, bio-chips, quantum circuits, superconducting circuits, etc.).

Full Call for Papers

Authors are encouraged to submit high-quality original research contributions that will not require major revisions. Please identify clearly the additional material from any original conference paper or workshop paper in your submitted manuscript. Submissions of relevant original work not previously presented at any conference are especially welcome.
