The 2nd IEEE International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip
The International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS) provides a high quality forum for scientists and engineers to present their latest research findings in the area of NoC-based systems at all levels, from the physical on-chip link level through the network level, and ranging up to systems architecture and application software.
NOCS’08 will be collocated with the 14th IEEE International Symposium on Asynchronous Circuits and Systems (ASYNC’08) http://async.org.uk/async2008 and the organization and the programs of both symposia will be jointly coordinated, including keynote lectures, tutorials, exhibitions and social events. One of the highlight topics of joint interest will be Low Power.

Papers should be submitted via the conference web site. The submission should not exceed ten pages in IEEE double column format. Papers that exceed the length limit may not be reviewed. To permit blind review, submissions should not include the author names. Papers will be evaluated by the program committee and reviews will be based on scientific merit, innovation, relevance, and presentation. New-idea papers are encouraged and should be submitted in the specific Seminal Work category. The program committee recognizes that such papers may contain fewer experimental results than papers in established areas. Normal and Seminal Work papers can be accepted either as full papers or as posters. Accepted papers will be included in the conference proceedings published by the IEEE Computer Society.
The authors of the papers accepted for NoCS'08 will be particularly encouraged to submit the extended versions of their papers to the Special Issue of IET Computers and Digital Techniques.
