Conference Location
Call For Papers
 The International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS) is the premier event dedicated to interdisciplinary research on on-chip, chip-scale, and multichip package scale communication technology, architecture, design methods, applications and systems. NOCS brings together scientists and engineers working on NoC innovations and applications from inter-related research communities, including computer architecture, networking, circuits and systems, packaging, embedded systems, and design automation. Topics of interest include, but are not limited to:

NoC Architecture and Implementation

    Network architecture (topology, routing, arbitration)
    NoC Quality of Service
    Timing, synchronous/asynchronous communication
    NoC reliability issues
    Network interface issues
    NoC design methodologies and tools
    Signaling and circuit design for NoC links

NoC Application

    Mapping of applications onto NoCs
    NoC case studies, application-specific NoC design
    NoCs for FPGAs, structured ASICs, CMPs and MPSoCs
    NoC designs for heterogeneous systems, fused CPU-GPU architectures, FPGA-based systems, etc
    Scalable modeling of NoCs

Novel NoC Technologies

    New physical interconnect technologies, e.g., carbon nanotubes, wireless NoCs, through-silicon, etc.
    NoCs for 3D and 2.5D packages
    Package-specific NoC design
    Optical, RF, & emerging technologies for on-chip/in-package interconnects
    In-memory network and NoCs for new memory technologies

NoC at the Un-Core and System-level

    Design of memory subsystem (un-core) including memory controllers, caches, cache coherence protocols in NoCs
    NoC support for memory and cache access
    OS support for NoCs
    Programming models including shared memory, message passing, and novel programming models
    Issues related to large-scale systems (datacenters, supercomputers) with NoC-based systems as building blocks

NoC Analysis and Verification

    Power, energy and thermal issues (at the NoC, un-core and/or system-level)
    Benchmarking & experience with NoC-based hardware
    Modeling, simulation, and synthesis of NoCs
    Verification, debug, and test of NoCs
    Metrics and benchmarks for NoCs

On-Chip Communication Optimization

    Communication efficient algorithms
    Communication workload characterization and evaluation
    Energy efficient NoCs and energy minimization

Off-Chip and Rack-Level Communication

    All aspects of inter-chip network design
    All aspects of rack-level network design


Electronic paper submission requires a full paper, up to 8 double-column IEEE format pages, including figures and references. The program committee in a double-blind review process will evaluate papers based on scientific merit, innovation, relevance, and presentation. Submitted papers must describe original work that has not been published before or is under review by another conference or journal at the same time. Each submission will be checked for any significant similarity to previously published works or for simultaneous submission to other archival venues, and such papers will be rejected. Proposals for special sessions and demos are invited. Paper submissions and demo proposals by industry researchers or engineers to share their experiences and perspectives are also welcome. Please refer to the submission page for more detailed submission instructions for paper submissions, special session, and demo proposals.
