INTERNATIONAL SYMPOSIUM ON LOW POWER ELECTRONICS AND DESIGN 2004
International Low Power Design Contest
Newport Beach, California; August 9-11, 2004
The International Symposium on Low Power Electronics and Design is holding
the 4th 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
2004, Newport Beach, August 9-11, 2004. 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 revised deadline for submissions
is June 14th, 2004. Entries should be submitted
electronically (in PDF or Postscript format) to the Design Contest Chairs:

CONTEST SUBMISSION GUIDELINES
- Submissions of original
designs, developed at universities and independent research
organizations are invited. Designs completed prior to Jan 1, 2001 are not eligible. Designs
submitted to the ISLPED 2001/2002/2003 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 higher.
- Designs can be h/w or s/w
based. Entries purely focused on optimization techniques/algorithms/tools
are not suitable for the Design Contest.
- Submitted designs should not
have received awards in other contests.
- Designs related to regular
papers submitted to ISLPED 2004 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
- 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 2004 proceedings and the authors can re-submit
related papers to other conferences.
- Each submission should
include a cover page which includes:
- Name, affiliation and
address of each author
- A designated contact person,
including his/her telephone number, fax number, and email address
- A designated
presenter, should the entry be accepted
- A statement on whether
a related paper was submitted to ISLPED 2004 as a regular submisison
- The following signed
- "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"
