ACM Transactions on Design Automation of Electronic Systems (TODAES) publishes recent significant results of research and development efforts in the area of design automation of electronic systems. The TODAES editorial board invites submissions of technical papers describing recent results of research and development efforts in the area of design automation of electronic systems. The journal intends to provide a comprehensive coverage of innovative works concerning the specification, design, analysis, simulation, testing, and evaluation of very large scale integrated electronic systems, emphasizing a computer science/engineering orientation.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

Analog/Digital Design, Analysis, Simulation, and Synthesis

  • Analog/digital design, analysis, and simulation
  • Logic, RTL, behavioral synthesis, and FPGA synthesis

Design Automation of Things

  • New/emerging device technologies and CAD applications
  • Design automation of bio, energy and cyberphysical systems

Embedded System Software and Cyberphysical Systems

  • Embedded software and real-time systems
  • Embedded system-level design and design methodologies
  • Embedded storage and I/O systems
  • Reliable and dependable computing systems

Low-Power Circuits and Systems

  • Low-power devices and circuits
  • High-level/cross-layer power and thermal management

On-Chip and System Architectures and Design

  • On-chip and system-level communication architecture and design
  • Micro-architectures, processor architectures, and system-on-chip
  • Reconfigurable systems and embedded systems architectures

Physical Design and Design for Manufacturability/Reliability

  • Physical design
  • Design for manufacturability and yield
  • Reliability, signal/power integrity

Security for Design Automation

  • Hardware and cross-layer security
  • Cyber security

Testing, Validation and Verification

  • Testing and design for testability
  • Simulation, validation, and formal verification

TODAES publishes research papers (approximately 20-25 printed pages each; single column), tutorial and survey papers (approximately 30-40 printed pages each; single column), and short technical notes (approximately 10-15 printed pages each; single column). Each accepted paper will be considered for the ACM TODAES Best Paper Award. The award will be presented during the opening ceremony at the Design Automation Conference (DAC).
