ISSS'99 is the 12th in a very successful series of symposia oriented
towards professionals in design automation and system level
design. The symposium provides the ideal forum for discussions on the
latest technologies and results in areas of system level design and
synthesis. This year's ISSS will be co-located with ICCAD in the same
hotel. ICCAD's technical sessions will be Nov. 7-10 while ISSS's
technical sessions will start on the afternoon of Wed. Nov. 10. The
Wednesday (Nov. 10) afternoon sessions of ISSS will be integrated in
the ICCAD afternoon program (in one of the ICCAD tracks) and will
contain special topics. Registrants for either ICCAD or ISSS will be
allowed to attend the joint Wednesday afternoon sessions. Thursday and
Friday (Nov. 11-12) will be devoted to the normal ISSS paper
presentations (for ISSS registrants only) separately of ICCAD. Topics
covered in the Symposium include:


System-level synthesis
Hardware-software co-design
Programmable (multi-) processor-based design and synthesis
System design experience and methodologies.
Embedded and real-time system software
High-level and architectural synthesis
Synthesis for low power, testability and verifiability in the above areas.


In addition to the technical papers presented by leading system-level
CAD researchers and practitioners, this year's ISSS features an
exciting array of special sessions. Several invited speakers from
industry will discuss system-level applications and trends. Embedded
tutorials are presented on Java compilation technology and software
for real-time systems. Finally, a panel on system level design tools
will include key experts from leading system level design houses to
discuss the current state-of-the-art design and corresponding tool
needs. Authors of papers accepted for ISSS'99 and other conferences
are encouraged to submit an extended version of their papers for
possible inclusion in a Special Section of the IEEE Transactions on
VLSI on System Level Synthesis and Design. Submissions of relevant
work not presented at ISSS'99 are also welcome. The call for papers
will be posted on the ISSS'99 Website.
