Call For Papers

Fifth International Workshop on
Network on Chip Architectures (NoCArc)
To be held in conjunction with the
45th Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture
December 4 (or 5), 2012
Vancouver, BC, Canada

NEWS: We are coordinating a special issue on NoCArc topics at a
journal for selected papers from NoCArc workshop.

General Information
By entering into the ultra deep sub-micron (UDSM) era, the role played by the on-chip communication system is getting more and more relevance. In fact, as technology shrinks, gates become faster and more power efficient whereas wires become slower and more power hungry. Thus, the on-chip communication system represents one of the most important elements which determine the overall performance, cost, reliability, and energy consumption of a modern multi-processor system-on-chip (MPSoC). If the raw computation horsepower seems to be unlimited thanks to the ability of instancing more and more cores in a single silicon die, scalability issues, due to the need of making efficient and reliable the communication between the increasing number of cores, becomes the real problem. Several phenomena like communication errors (due to crosstalk, electromagnetic interference, inter-symbol interference, etc.), link latency, link power dissipation, etc., that were considered negligible in the previous technologies, are dominant in current and next generation MPSoC. The network-on-chip (NoC) paradigm is considered as the most viable solution for designing on-chip communication systems able to tackle with the above issues. The goal of the workshop is to provide a forum for researchers to present and discuss innovative ideas and solutions related to design and implementation of multi-core systems on chip.

Areas of Interest
This workshop focuses on issues related to design, analysis and testing of on-chip networks. The topics of specific interest for the workshop include, but are not limited to:

Topologies selection and synthesis for NoCs and MPSoCs
Routing algorithms and router micro-architectures
QoS in on-chip communication
Mapping of cores to NoC slots
Power and energy issues
Fault tolerance and reliability issues
Memory architectures for NoC
Dynamic on-chip network reconfiguration
Modeling and evaluation of on-chip networks
On-chip interconnection network simulators and emulators
Analytical analysis methods for NoC performance and other properties
Verification, debug and test of NoC
3D NoC architectures
Emerging technologies and new design paradigms
Industrial case studies of SoC designs using the NoC paradigm

Submission Guidelines
Both research and application-oriented papers are welcome. All papers should be submitted electronically by EasyChair. Submissions must be limited to 6 pages. Please, visit the workshop webpage ( for additional information about the submission process.
