The 26th edition of GLSVLSI will be held in Boston,
Massachusetts, USA. Original, unpublished papers describing
research in the general areas of VLSI and hardware design are
solicited. Both theoretical and experimental research results
are welcome. Proceedings will be published by the ACM and will
be available through the ACM Digital Library. Please visit
for more information.
addition to the traditional topic areas of GLSVLSI listed below,
papers are solicited for a
special theme of "Hardware and System Design for Security and
We anticipate a special issue of a journal on the same topic for
which selected papers related to the special theme will be
invited to submit extended versions for consideration.

February 12, 2016
Camera-Ready Paper Due: March
Paper Submission: Authors
are invited to submit full-length (6 pages maximum), original,
unpublished papers along with an abstract of at most 200 words.
To enable blind review, the author list should be omitted from
the main document. Previously published papers or papers
currently under review for other conferences/journals should not
be submitted and will not be considered. Electronic submission
in PDF format to the
website is required. Author and contact information (name,
street/mailing address, telephone, fax, e-mail) must be entered
during the submission process.
Publication and Presenter Registration: Papers will be
accepted for regular or poster presentation at the symposium.
Every accepted paper MUST have at least one author registered to
the symposium; the author is also expected to attend the
symposium and present the paper.
Format: Submissions should be in camera-ready two-column
format, following the ACM proceedings specifications located at:
