Future Trends in Emerging Technologies (FTET)

Special Session Scope

The Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD) addresses all aspects of digital and mixed HW/SW system engineering for advanced embedded, high-performance and cyber-physical applications, covering the whole design trajectory from system specification down to micro-architectures, digital circuits and VLSI implementations.

Emerging technologies promise to revolutionize the way computations are carried out: Quantum computers, promoted by companies such as IBM or Google, are expected to outclass classical computers in the near future and threaten to break state-of-the-art encryption schemes. Approximate Computing is a new computation paradigm that optimizes non-functional aspects such as latency, energy consumption, or area by allowing for incorrect computations. Microfluidic devices try to revolutionize laboratory processes by shrinking them to the size of a chip ("lab-on-a-chip").

This special session aims to provide a forum to present recent research results and to discuss current and upcoming trends in the different fields of emerging technologies with a focus on Quantum Computing. Of interest for this special session are contributions on new devices and technologies, synthesis approaches for these technologies and the corresponding design automation. Within the scope of this special session, practical results, such as novel hardware implementations, heuristics/algorithms, application case studies, and software tools, as well as theoretical results are highly welcomed. The topics of interest for this special session include but are not limited to:

  • Quantum Computing
  • Quantum Dot Cellular Automata
  • Approximate Computing
  • Reversible Logic
  • Microfluidics / Biochips
  • Memristors
  • Polymorphic / Ambipolar circuits
  • Nano-Emerging Technologies
  • Optical Circuits / Computing
  • DNA Computing

Submission Guidelines

Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts via EasyChair web service at web page . Each manuscript should include the complete paper text, all illustrations, and references. The manuscript should conform to the IEEE format: single-spaced, double column, US letter page size, 10-point size Times Roman font, up to 8 pages. In order to conduct a blind review, no indication of the authors' names should appear in the manuscript, references included.
