                                                            About ISSS

ISSS is a major international forum presenting emerging techniques for the
system-level design and synthesis of computing systems. Having begun as the
International Workshop on High-Level Synthesis in the mid-80's, it attracts
leading design automation professionals from around the world. The growing
acceptance of commercial synthesis tools, and the unified view of both
hardware and software that such tools enable, has led to the symposium
expanding to now cover hardware/software codesign, programmable
processor-based design, system and high-level synthesis, system-design
methodologies, synthesis for low power and test, and embedded and
real-time software. ISSS96 features 23 papers selected from over 80
submissions. Paper presentations will consist of short talks followed by
poster sessions, allowing ample time for discussion and interaction.

                                                  La Jolla, California

The symposium's location, La Jolla, California, is a widely-acclaimed
San Diego village just 20 minutes north of San Diego International Airport.
Situated along the Pacific Ocean, La Jolla includes several of Southern
California's popular tourist spots, including the La Jolla Cove's
breathtaking ocean views, excellent snorkeling, and caves; the La Jolla
Shores beach; the Stephen Birch Aquarium; Torrey Pines State Reserve;
La Jolla shops and restaurants; hot-air ballooning; the Del Mar Race Track;
and U.C. San Diego (all within reach by complimentary hotel transportation).

Nearby attractions include Sea World, the San Diego Zoo, Seaport Village,
Balboa Park (galleries, museums, and theaters) and Tijuana, Mexico.
Los Angeles is a two-hour drive from La Jolla, Disneyland in Anaheim is a
1.5 hour drive, while San Jose (site of ICCAD96, being held the week after
ISSS) is about an hours flight away.
