INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON LOW POWER ELECTRONICS AND DESIGN 2007
International Low Power Design Contest
Portland, Oregon, USA; August 27-29,
The International Symposium on Low Power
Electronics and Design is holding the 7th International Low Power Design
Contest to provide a forum for universities and research organizations to
showcase original "power-aware" designs and to highlight the innovations
and design choices targeted at low power. The goal is to encourage and
highlight design-oriented approaches to power reduction.
The best designs will be selected and
invited for presentation at ISLPED 2007, Portland,
on August 27-29, 2007. A special session in the symposium will be devoted to
the Low Power Design Contest.
An industry-sponsored cash award will be
awarded to each selected design entry (up to 5 entries may be selected). This
could be used to defray the travel and living expenses for the speaker.
A call for submissions appears below. The
deadline for submissions is June 18, 2007. Entries should
be submitted electronically (in PDF or Postscript format) to the Design Contest

CONTEST SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
- Submissions of original designs, developed at
universities and independent research organizations are invited. Designs
completed prior to Jan 1, 2005 are not eligible. Designs submitted to the
ISLPED 2001-2006 Design Contests are not eligible.
- Submissions should contain the title of the project, a 60-word
abstract and a complete description of the design, not exceeding 4-6 pages
of text and figures.
- The submission should clarify the originality, distinguishing
features, and the measured performance metrics of the design.
- The power targets for the design, the design choices related to
power, and the specific optimizations, techniques and tradeoffs used to
reduce power need to be highlighted.
- Submissions that present proof-of-implementation in the form of
die, board or system photographs and measurement data will be rated
- Designs can be h/w or s/w based. Entries purely focused on
optimization techniques/algorithms/tools are not suitable for the Design
- Submitted designs should not have received awards in other
- Designs related to regular papers submitted to ISLPED 2007 can
be submitted to the contest. They will be judged independently. However,
in this case the authors need to state that they have submitted a regular
paper as well. The Design Contest entry should also be qualitatively
different from the regular paper and should specifically focus on the
design description, and measurements, and needs to present proof-of-implementation.
For papers accepted as regular papers/posters, a related submission to the
Design Contest may be accepted/rejected based on
the overlap of content with the regular paper/poster and the overall
balance of the technical program of the Symposium.
- Selected designs will be presented at the Symposium (in a
special session and/or as posters).
- Selected entries will not be published in the ISLPED 2007
proceedings and the authors can re-submit related papers to other
- Each submission should include a cover page which includes:
- Name, affiliation and address of each
- A designated contact person, including
his/her telephone number, fax number, and email address
- A designated presenter, should the entry be
- A statement on whether a related paper was
submitted to ISLPED 2007 as a regular submission
- The following signed statement: "All appropriate
organizational approvals for the publication of this paper have been
obtained. If accepted the author(s) will select a designated speaker to
present the paper at the Symposium."
