SMACD 2017 and PRIME 2017 Special Issue

The top ranked papers in both conferences PRIME and SMACD 2017 will be invited to submit extended versions for a Special Issue of Integration, The VLSI Journal (Elsevier).

SMACD 2017 Best Paper Awards

This year we will have 3 Paper Awards (Best Paper, Runner-up Best Paper and a Honorable Mention) as a recognition not only for the best contributions but also for the best presentations.

SMACD 2017 EDA Competition

Following the last 3 editions, SMACD 2017 will also have an EDA Competition. The candidates must submit a 4 pages paper, similar to regular submissions, but will have additional time during the conference to present a live demo. The work will be evaluated by an independent committee.

The competition is co-sponsored by IEEE CEDA with a prize award of $1000.

SMACD 2017 Paper Publication

The conference is technically co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE CAS and IEEE CEDA.

The conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in IEEExplore.


The 14th International Conference on Synthesis, Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Methods and Applications to Circuit Design (SMACD 2017) will be held from the 12th to the 15th of June 2017 in Giardini Naxos - Taormina, Italy at the Atahotel Naxos Beach Congress Centre.

SMACD is a forum devoted to Design Methods and Tools for Analog, Mixed-signal, RF (AMS/RF) and multi-domain (MEMS, nanoelectronic, optoelectronic, biological, etc.) integrated circuits and systems.

SMACD 2017 is Technically Co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE CEDA and IEEE CAS.

The conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in IEEExplore.
