AISB event Bulletin Item


Dear Colleague:

We would like to invite you to submit a paper to EvoHOT 2008, the 4th
European Workshop on Hardware Optimization Techniques.

********** DEADLINE HAS BEEN EXTENDED TO NOVEMBER 11 **************

EvoHOT focuses on innovative heuristics, game theory and bio-inspired
techniques (eg. EA, SA, AIS, NN, ants) applied to the Electronic
Design Automation.

The workshop goal is to show the latest developments; industrial
experiences; successful attempts to /evolve/ rather than /design/ new
solutions; hybridizations of traditional methodologies.

EvoHOT topics include, but are not limited to:
  * Analog circuit design
  * Automatic test pattern generation
  * Built-in self test
  * Evolutionary design of electronic circuits
  * Evolutionary hardware design methodologies
  * Evolutionary robotics
  * Evolvable hardware
  * Floorplanning
  * Hardware/Software co-design
  * Hybrid evolutionary/exact approach
  * Hardware accelerated methodologies
  * Logic synthesis
  * Routing
  * Test program generation

Submissions should be formatted according to the LNCS guidelines and
must not be longer than 10 pages.

EvoHOT is part of Evo*, Europe premier event in the field of
evolutionary computing. Evo* incorporates 3 conferences and 11
workshops; its proceedings are published by Springer in the LNCS
series. The 2008 event will take place in Napoli (Italy) on 26-28
March 2008.

The website offers updated information about
EvoHOT and all other Evo* events, including call for papers,
organising committees and submission requirements. A one page brochure
is also available to download at that website.

Thanks for your patience and interest
Rolf Drechsler & Giovanni Squillero (EvoHOT chairs)
