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..



Special Sessions

The 2020 SMACD Conference will hold the following Special Sessions on relevant and emerging topics.

WIRELESS POWER TRANSFER SYSTEMS: ENHANCED MODELING, SIMULATION AND DESIGN

In the last decade, the growing number of personal electronic devices that the average person relies on has created a large demand for Wireless Power Transfer (WPT). The development and commercialization of this technology for consumer applications have also opened opportunities in several markets, such as wearable electronics, RF energy harvesters, healthcare and automotive industry.

Suitable models and methods are needed to accomplish such a challenging task, considering also the impact of uncertainties and tolerances. Therefore, this Special Session aims to bring together original contributions on enhanced modeling, simulation, design and testing of WPTcharging systems.


MACHINE LEARNING FOR MIXED-SIGNAL EDA:
ENABLING DESIGN ENGINEERS WITH LEARNING TOOLS AND ALGORITHMS

Machine Learning (ML) is very hot topics nowadays showing the ability to distill knowledge from existing data, create models or even generate new variants.

Such techniques can help engineers during the design process of many applications that drive the microelectronics industry. These techniques are more and more used on all levels of electronic designs.

This Special Session aims to bring together original research that advances analog and mixedsignal EDA using machine learning methods for broad applications such as device modeling, circuit sizing, circuit layout, system-level synthesis and others.
