Workshop Focus

With increasing levels of integration, embedded microelectronic systems have turned into an indispensable part of our society. While some systems such as smart phones or tablets appear very prominently and participate directly in our daily lives, others remain silently in the background to provide for functions, such as health or environmental monitoring. What almost all of these systems have in common is that they earn most of their value from mobility and require independence from the mains. Hence, they are often powered either from batteries or even through energy harvesting. As such, they must operate in a regime, where mW or even uW of power consumption are necessary to meet user expectations on battery lifetime. 

The objective of this workshop is to bring together experts, from both industry and academia, in system architecturecircuit design, and technology to discuss the challenges and the latest trends in the development of low-power and ultra-low-power embedded systems. In particular, the workshop covers areas such as 

  • Low-power embedded systems and computing architectures 
  • Ultra-low power and sub-threshold circuit design 
  • Variability and reliability issues in modern process technologies and corresponding new design paradigms 
  • Advanced CMOS and More-than-Moore Technologies 

for mobile, wearable, and embedded applications. 

The workshop features a number of Keynote presentations, followed by extensive Q&A sessions for interactive discussions. Furthermore, we will have a number of invited technical presentations from experts in the field. PhD students will have the opportunity to present their research in poster sessions.We expect a mixed audience from industry and academia and hope to thereby strengthen the link between companies and research institutions.
