Call for Nomination
The Design Automation Conference (DAC) annually awards a scholarship in memory of Dr A. Richard Newton to support graduate research and study in electronic design automation (EDA). The $24K scholarship supports graduate students or young faculty investigators embarking on new research in the field of EDA. The successful applicants will be announced at the 49th DAC, which will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, from June 3-7, 2012.
Richard Newton was a professor and dean of the College of Engineering at the University of California, Berkeley, a pioneer in electronic design automation and integrated circuit design, and a visionary leader in the technology industry. His teaching and research interests include all aspects of the design of electronic systems and the application of information and communication technologies (ICT) to the solution of societal problems.
Dr. Newton understood the power of engineering and technology in entirely new ways, and he connected them to addressing society's toughest problems. The vibrancy of his thinking helped shape an industry on what engineering is and what it can be. The A. Richard Newton Graduate Scholarship honors Dr. Newton and supports entrepreneurship with the same vision and spirit for engineering.
Scholarships will be awarded based on the following criteria:
- Quality and applicability of the proposed research
- Impact of the award on the program at the faculty investigator's institution
- Academic credentials of the student(s)
- Financial need. Preference will be given to students and programs that can demonstrate financial need.
Applications must be submitted electronically by March 18th, 2012. Full details are on the DAC website at www.dac.comCall for PapersInternational Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design

Abstract Registration Due Mar 2, 2012
Submission Deadline Mar 9, 20122nd Workshop on the Intersections of Computer Architecture and Reconfigurable Logic
Portland, Oregon - Sunday, June 10, 2012 Co-located with ISCA-39 http://www.ece.cmu.edu/calcm/carl
The Workshop on the Intersections of Computer Architecture and Reconfigurable Logic (CARL) is a new forum for presenting FPGA and reconfigurable logic research relevant to a computer architecture audience.
This full-day workshop will be held on Sunday, June 10, 2012, co-located with ISCA-39 in Portland, Oregon. The meeting will include keynote presentations, research presentations, "quick-pitches," and a brainstorming panel. Please visit the website (www.ece.cmu.edu/calcm/carl) for more information.
We invite research papers from all areas of FPGA and reconfigurable logic that impact the computer architecture community. Major areas of interests include, but are not limited to:
1. New FPGA architectures and reconfigurable fabric designed to support computing 2. Heterogeneous computing processors and systems that incorporate reconfigurable logic 3. Computation models and programming tools for reconfigurable and heterogeneous computing 4. State-of-the-art (ready-for-use) reconfigurable computing platforms and infrastructure 5. Algorithms and applications for reconfigurable computing (including FPGA-based prototyping and simulation of computer systems) 6. Evaluations of reconfigurable computing in terms of performance, power/energy, flexibility and cost, especially in comparison to other hardware paradigms (multicore, GPU, ASICs, etc.).
We will accept submissions in two categories: (1) new unpublished manuscripts, and (2) audience-appropriate revisions of papers already published or under review outside of traditional computer architecture forums. Papers selected for presentations will not be published in any formal proceedings.
A submission should be 4~6 pages in double-column format. The review process is not blind; please include authors' names and affiliations. Please clearly indicate whether a submission is category 1 or 2 in the header area of the submission. If category 2, the source materials must be explicitly introduced in both the abstract and introduction.
In addition to formal research presentations, CARL 2012 will have a "quick-pitch" session for short 8-minute informal presentations to pitch a new idea, make an announcement, etc. The presenter's goal is to engage the CARL audience so they will want to find out more from a website. Interested presenters should submit a 1-page proposal that includes a title; presenter's name and affiliation; an abstract of the presentation; and a web-link to the website being pitched. Preference will be given to topics that are current and has a broad appeal to the CARL audience.
Please visit the workshop website (www.ece.cmu.edu/calcm/carl) for submission. Please email questions firstname.lastname@example.org.
Submission Deadline: March 30, 2012
Notification of Selection: May 1, 2012
Final Paper Submission: May 28, 201225th Symposium on Integrated Circuits and System Design - SBCCI2012
Chip in Brasilia Brasília - Brazil August 30th to September 2nd, 2012 www.sbcci.org.br
SBCCI is an international forum dedicated to integrated circuits and systems design, test and CAD, held annually in Brazil.
The 25th SBCCI will take place in Brasilia, Brazil. The goal of the symposium is to bring together researchers in the areas of computer-aided design, design and test of integrated circuits and systems. The scope of the symposium includes technical sessions, tutorials and panels, as well as exhibition and working group meetings. The proceedings will be published by the ACM Press and will remain available at the ACM
Digital Library and IEEE Xplore. The best papers presented at the symposium will be invited to resubmit an extended version to be considered for publication at the IEEE Design & Test and at the JICS - Journal of Integrated Circuits and Systems.
Please find more information on the SBCCI website.
