VLSI-SoC 2018 is the 26th in a series of international conferences sponsored by the International Federation for Information Processing Technical Committee 10 Working Group 5, IEEE CEDA and IEEE CASS, which explore the state-of-the-art in the areas of Very Large Scale Integration (VLSI) and System-on-Chip (SoC) design. The purpose of VLSI-SoC is to provide a forum to exchange ideas and showcase academic as well as industrial research in architectures, circuits, devices, design automation, verification, test, and security, within digital, analog, and mixed-signal systems.

VLSI-SoC 2018 will be held under the theme “Design and engineering of electronics systems based on new computing paradigms” by addressing cutting-edge research fields like heterogeneous, neuromorphic and brain-inspired, biologically-inspired, approximate computing systems. VLSI-SoC 2018 will be held in Verona, Italy. Verona, which has been awarded World Heritage Site status by UNESCO because of its urban structure and architecture, is the set of the Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet play, one of the most visited Roman imperial city in Northern Italy, the capital of the opera lyrics with its Arena roman amphitheater, the land of the Amarone della Valpolicella vineyards.
