Sixth International Workshop on Power and Timing Modeling, Optimization and Simulation

September 23-25, 1996

DEIS UniversitÓ di Bologna, Bologna, Italy

Call for Papers

Paper deadline April 5, 1996

The workshop is the sixth one of a series of international workshops having been held in Kaiserslautern, Germany, 1991, Paris, France, 1992, Montpellier, France, 1993, Barcelona, Spain, 1994, and Oldenburg, Germany, 1995. PATMOS has over the years evolved into a well established and outstanding series of open European events on power and timing at the logical and physical level of integrated circuit design. The recently increased interest especially in low-power design gives an additional momentum to the interest in this workshop. Despite its growth, the workshop can still be considered as an informal but very focused conference featuring high level scientific presentations together with open discussions and panel sessions in a free and easy environment. In 1996 the venue will be Bologna, northern Italy.


The objective of this workshop is to provide a forum to discuss and investigate the emerging problems in the design methodologies and CAD-tools for the new generation of IC technologies. A major emphasis of the technical program is on speed and low-power aspects such as timing, power and low-voltage modeling, characterisation, logic and layout design, allowing performance driven design for advanced technologies. The scope of the workshop includes, but is not limited to design and CAD aspects of:

Call for Contributions

Contributions are invited for regular presentations and discussion sessions. Prospective authors are invited to submit, by April 5, 1996, 6 copies of a complete paper not exceeding 10 pages including a 100-word abstract and illustrations, A4 camera-ready format, Times 14, 1 1/2 space, without any indication of the author's name or affiliation.
