♣ General Instructions

Prospective authors must submit a self-contained paper with figures and tables electronically through the conference website by October 19, 2018  (23:59 GMT+8) 

The length of a submitted paper must be 2-4 pages. Any submissions not adhering to the length constraint will be returned immediately without review.

In addition to the paper and camera-ready manuscript , the submission should be included with a 80~100 Word ABSTRACT, which will be published in the advance and final program if the paper is accepted.

VLSI-DAT adopts the DOUBLE BLIND REVIEW process; please DO NOT reveal your name(s) or affiliation(s) anywhere in the submitted manuscript for the first paper submission.

Before submitting your abstract/paper, please review the information on IEEE Intellectual Property Rights at http://www.ieee.org/web/publications/rights/index.html

The notices of acceptance will be sent out to authors on December 28, 2018.

Any changes on title and author list or withdraw after acceptance must be approved by Technical Program Co-Chairs.

For an accepted paper to be published in the proceedings, one of its co-author(s) MUST pay the full registration fee by February 28, 2019 23:59 (GMT+8) and attend the symposium to present the paper. Note that each accepted paper shall be accompanied by a different full registration; that is, two full registrations are required for presenting two papers even if the presenter is the same.

Presentation of accepted papers at the symposium must be in English and will be limited to 18 minutes with an additional 2 minutes for Q&A. The final manuscript of all accepted papers will be published as submitted in the proceedings.

No-show papers will not be included in the symposium proceedings and will not be submitted to the IEEE Xplore database.

   Student Subsidy 
All students are entitled to get a discount of up to 85% on the registration fee.
Financial supports are available for full-time student presenters living outside of Taiwan.
 
  Special Session Submission
To encourage industry and research institutes to share their experiences on system and product development, 1 or 2-page papers on system prototyping and product development are solicited. Submission to this special session should specifically select the paper category of System Prototyping / Product Development to be reviewed separately from the regular submissions.
 
  Best Paper Award 

Two best papers will be selected this year through a rigorous evaluation process, which is conducted by the program committee and session chairs.
