Fifth ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip

May 1-4, 2011

Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA

Conference Web Site:

The International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS) is the premier event dedicated to interdisciplinary research on on-chip and in-package communication technology, architecture, design methods and applications. NOCS aims at bringing together scientists and engineers working on NoC innovations from inter-related research communities, including computer architecture, networking, circuits and systems, embedded systems, and design automation.

Original papers describing new and previously unpublished results are solicited on all aspects of NoC technology. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

Network architecture (topology, routing, arbitration) NoC design methodologies and tools
Network design for 3D stacked logic and memory NoC Quality of Service
Mapping of applications onto NoCs NoCs for FPGAs and structured ASICs
Power and energy issues NoC support for CMP/MPSoCs
Timing, synchronous/asynchronous communication Novel interconnect links/switches/routers
NoC reliability issues Optical & RF for on-chip/in-package interconnects
OS support for NoCs and programming models Signaling and circuit design for NoC links
Workload characterization & evaluation Physical design of interconnect and NoC
Network interface issues Verification, debug & test of NoCs
Modeling, simulation, and synthesis of NoCs Metrics and benchmarks for NoCs
NoC support for memory and cache access NoC case studies, application-specific NoC design

Electronic paper submission requires a full paper, up to 8 double-column IEEE format pages, including figures and references. Papers will be evaluated by the program committee in a blind review process based on scientific merit, innovation, relevance, and presentation. Proposals for tutorials, special sessions, panels are also invited. Detailed instructions for paper, tutorial, special sessions, and panel proposals are available separately.

A special section related to the conference will be organized in collaboration with one of the IEEE journals.
