ICCD 2015: Call for Special Sessions

ICCD 2015: Call for Special Sessions

The International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD) encompasses a wide range of topics in the research, design, and implementation of computer systems and their components. ICCD's multi-disciplinary emphasis provides an ideal environment for developers and researchers to discuss practical and theoretical work covering system and computer architecture, test, verification and security, design and technology, and tools and methodologies.

ICCD 2015 will be held in New York City, NY, USA (October 19-21, 2015).

Researchers both from academia and industry are invited to submit proposals for special sessions. A special session could consists of a set of individual presentations or a panel. The special sessions should aim at providing a complementary experience with respect to the regular sessions. Hence, sessions focusing on hot topics of interest to the community that may also go beyond disciplines traditionally represented at ICCD are particularly welcome.

The theme for ICCD 2015 is "Hardware and Embedded Security".
Organizers are encouraged to incorporate this theme into the rationale for their proposals.

Submission details:

A single PDF file including the following information:

  • Title of the special session.
  • Rationale of the need for the special session at ICCD. The rationale should stress the novelty of the topic and/or its multidisciplinary flavor, and must explain how it is different from the subjects covered by the regular sessions.
  • Short biography of the organizers.
  • List of three (3) contributed presentations (including titles, presenters, contact information of the corresponding presenter, and an abstract of each contribution). For panel proposals, list three to five panelists and their area of expertise.

Proposals are due on or before June 21, 2015 11:59pm and should be sent via e-mail to both ICCD-2015 Special Session Chairs:

  •    Luca Carloni, Columbia University, US, <luca@cs.columbia.edu>
  •    Christian Pilato, Columbia University, US, <pilato@cs.columbia.edu>

Each presenter of accepted special sessions will have the opportunity to submit a 4-page paper to be included in the proceedings.

Important dates:

  • Special Session proposal due: June 21, 2015
  • Acceptance notification: July 21, 2015
  • Camera-ready version due: August 22, 2015
