Innovation Themes

The ISCAS 2017 technical program will highlight circuits and systems contributions related to the following cross-cutting, interdisciplinary innovation themes.  These themes will be used to organize supertracks throughout the technical program linking thematically organized technical sessions, special sessions, invited speakers, plenary lectures, mini-tutorials, and other special events.  Internet of Things, Hardware Security, and Cognitive Computing & Deep Learning have been additionally designated as day themes, with the intention of featuring one of these innovation themes on each day of the technical program.  At the time of paper submission, submitting authors will be invited to indicate thematic alignment of their paper (with up to three themes, although none are required). The technical program will comprise a mix of themed sessions with traditional sessions organized by Track and subtrack topics.

The ISCAS 2017 technical program will highlight Circuits and Systems contributions related to the following innovation themes:

  • Internet of Things
  • Cognitive Computing & Deep Learning
  • Hardware Security
  • Brain: Innovative NeuroTechnologies 
  • Analog and Digital Senses
  • Autonomous Vehicles, Robotics, and UAVs
  • Smart Buildings and Cities
