  • Prospective authors are asked to submit their work in two stages for VLSI-DAT 2022.
          → In Stage One (abstract submission), a title, an 80- to 100-word abstract, and a list of all
                 co-authors must be submitted via the conference submission page before Nov. 01, 2021.                   No abstract submissions after the deadline.
            → In Stage Two (paper submission), authors must electronically submit the self-contained                        paper with figures and tables via the same submission page before Nov. 15, 2021. 
  • The submitted manuscript must be 2-4 pages, double-columned, IEEE-style compatible, in PDF format only. Any submissions not adhering to the rules will be rejected immediately without review. 
  • 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 https://www.ieee.org/web/publications/rights/index.html
  • The notices of acceptance will be sent out to authors on December 30, 2021.
  • Any changes on the title and author list or withdrawal 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 register and attend the symposium to present the paper. Note that each accepted paper shall be accompanied by a distinct registration; that is, two 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 limited to 18 minutes, with an additional 2 minutes for Q&A. The final manuscripts 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.
  • Please refer to the detailed information on the conference website for authors: https://expo.itri.org.tw/2022vlsidat
  • Financial supports are available for full-time student presenters living outside of Taiwan.
  • Three best papers will be selected this year through a rigorous evaluation process conducted by the program committee and session chairs.
