Late Breaking News

Print the Call for Paper (PDF)

The ISCAS 2016 Organizing Committee invites proposals for Call for Late Breaking News one-page paper at ISCAS 2016. The world of Circuits and Systems is rapidly changing as designers battle with the end of Moore’s law, the push toward both dense and distributed systems, and an increasingly complex world with rising user transparency. IEEE ISCAS is responding to this fast pace of changes in Circuits and Systems with the addition of a new track called “Late Breaking News”. Late Breaking News (LBN) is a venue for fast dissemination of novel and new results in the field for which timeliness of disclosure with the community is critical. ISCAS, as the flagship conference of the Circuits and Systems Society, now solicits contributions through a new venue for post-deadline, late-breaking and high profile results of particular interest to the CASS audience to be highlighted in a spotlight session called “Latest News”. In an effort to assure the very highest quality, and to create a session of high prestige papers deserving of particular attention and of specifically high interest, a thorough review process will be conducted and a partnership between ISCAS and TCAS-II has been initiated. A Special Issue of TCAS-II has been created to highlight this very select group of LBN papers to be selected based on this open solicitation of ISCAS papers with a deadline of Feb 15, 2016.

All accepted ISCAS LBN papers are assumed to be of such high quality that their extended versions are automatically solicited for publication, pending review, in this Special Issue of TCAS-II. The aim of this new venture is to publish technical papers reflecting the most recent and highest impact research and application results in the broad area of Circuits and Systems. All topical areas spanning the technical breadth of CASS are encouraged in this special issue, including cross-cutting topics and those that reach beyond disciplines traditionally represented at ISCAS.

Authors are invited to submit a one-page document using epapers following the schedule and characteristics below. Authors of accepted submissions should present their results in ISCAS 2016, and follow the normal IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems-II guidelines for their full paper submission to TCAS-II website, but please choose “Special Issue ISCAS Latest News”. Original research with significant novelty and experimental results is sought. Papers already accepted or published in conferences will not be considered for this special issue.

Authors are invited to prepare their one-page Late Breaking News (LBN) contributions to be submitted for this activity of ISCAS 2016. An example of the 1-page paper is provided here.
