The 6th International Workshop on Unique Chips and Systems (UCAS-6)


To be held in conjunction with
the 43rd Annual IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Microarchitecture (

December 4, 2010

Atlanta, GA, USA





This workshop looks forward to bring together unique research in all areas of chip and system design. We are looking forward to assembling a program with unique technologies, circuits and architectures that your academic or industry team is working on.


UCAS-6 will have Regular sessions (2 main topics: computer architecture and VLSI design) and WIP (Work in Progress) session.


Subcategories Topics of interest include but not limited to unique aspects of:
  I.   Computer Architecture




  II.  VLSI design



-VLSI Systems

-Nanoelectronics and Gigascale Systems

-Software Systems

-Grid computing

-Mobile Cloud Computing


-Pervasive Computing

-Radiation hardened systems

-Low Power Architectures and Systems

-Fine-grain parallel architectures

-Many-core architectures

-Multimedia and Mobile processors

-Performance Evaluation and Workload Characterization

-Unique technologies (quantum well optoelectronic, biologically inspired circuits systems, RF and high frequency, etc.)


WIP (Work in Progress) session


The Work in Progress session is devoted to the presentation of new and on-going research in computer architecture and VLSI design. The primary purpose of the WIP session is to provide researchers with an opportunity to discuss their evolving ideas and get feedback in the workshop.



Submission Guideline: Prospective authors are invited to submit papers in standard IEEE two-column format

   -Regular sessions: not exceeding 8 pages (6~8 pages)

   -WIP (work-in-progress) session: 4 pages
