PAPER SUBMISSION : MARCH 15, 2013 (Extended!!!)

This is a CFP for a special session that will be organized at the 2013 IEEE Congress on Evolutionary Computation (

Aim and Topics:

Over the last two decades substantial attention of electronic circuits designers has been, and continues to be focusing on applications of optimization techniques to design, size and synthesise such circuits and systems.

Actually, such fields, like the analogue, the radio-frequency, the mixed signal, and the related ones, have long been considered as knowledge intensive, iterative, and multiphase tasks. Designers have to show a large portfolio of skills in order to be able to synthesize and design such high performance circuits/systems.

The overabundance of such different and complex applications, the greedy need in performances, added to that the fact that in such circuits/systems generally coexist large numbers of complicated constraints to be satisfied, correlated performance functions to be optimized, and parameters to be handled, automating the design task became mandatory.

Optimisation techniques were/are used for that purpose. However, and due to the aforementioned facts, the field is, arguable, very often considered as an NP-hard one. The use of classical optimisation techniques is no longer satisfactory. Metaheuristics bid good spare solutions. The corresponding literature is becoming fertile in terms of applications of metaheuristics, such as evolutionary algorithms, bio-inspired techniques, and very recently hybrid approaches.

Thus, the aim of this special session is to bring together specialists in order to present their recent works and discuss faced difficulties, realized improvements, and future trends in the related fields.

Topics of interest of the special session include but are not limited to the following:

* Evolutionary algorithms and their application to the electronic circuit design and synthesis.
* Swarm intelligence in the design automation of electronic circuits.
* Metaheuristics applied to circuit sizing.
* Optimization methods for low voltage/power analog circuits.
* Electromagnetic optimization.
* Signal processing.
* Sensor networks.
* Telecommunications systems.
* Power systems.
* Circuit, Filter and network synthesis.
* Application of metaheuristics to VLSI layout design
* Hybrid techniques.
