The International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design (ISLPED) is the premier forum for presentation of recent advances in all aspects of low power design and technologies, ranging from process and circuit technologies, to simulation and synthesis tools, to system level design and optimization. Specific topics include, but are not limited to, the following two main areas, each with three sub-areas:

1. Architecture, Circuits, and Technology 2. Design Tools, System and Software Design
1.1.Technologies and Digital Circuits

Emerging logic and memory technologies, Device design, Low power circuits, Memory circuits, Cooling technologies, Battery technologies

2.1. Simulation and Estimation Tools

Energy simulation and estimation tools that operate at the circuit/gate level, RT level, behavioral level, and algorithmic level

1.2. Logic and Microarchitecture Design

Processor core design, Cache design, Logic and RTL design, Arithmetic and signal processing circuits, Encryption technologies, Asynchronous design.

2.2. Physical Design, Synthesis and Optimization Tools

Physical design tools, Interconnect modeling and optimization tools, Logic and RT level synthesis, Behavioral and system level design aids.

1.3. Analog, MEMS and Mixed Signal Electronics

RF circuits, Wireless systems, MEMS circuits, AD/DA Converters, Mixed-signal circuits, DC-DC conversion.

2.3. System and Software Design

Microprocessor, DSP and embedded systems design, ASIC and FPGA designs, Power aware compiler and operating system design, Application level optimizations
