Postponed to 2021.

Due to the corona pandemic, we have decided to postpone the SMACD2020/PRIME2020 conference originally planned for July 2020 by one year. With this step we would like to contribute to reduce the risk of infection, which is difficult to predict from the current perspective.

Authors of already submitted papers will be contacted soon.

We very much regret the postponement and ask for your understanding..



Call For Papers

The 2020 edition of the International Conference on Synthesis, Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Methods and Applications to Circuit Design (SMACD) will be held in Erfurt, Germany, as a forum devoted to modeling, simulation and synthesis for Analog, Mixed-signal, RF (AMS/RF) and multi-domain (nanoelectronics, biological, MEMS, optoelectronics, etc.) integrated circuits and systems. Experiences with modeling, simulation and synthesis techniques including machine-learning and artificial intelligence in diverse application areas are also welcomed. Objective technologies include CMOS, beyond CMOS, and, More-than-Moore such as MEMS, power devices, sensors, passives, etc.

SMACD 2020 will be co-located with the Conference on PhD Research in Microelectronics and Electronics (PRIME 2020).
