Call for Papers

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is driving the new revolution of not only the information technology but also all other industries. New algorithms and application systems are introduced with the power of AI. New computing platforms are required to support the emerging AI algorithms and applications, from cloud servers to edge devices, from system level to circuit level. Facing this new challenge and opportunity, the 1st AICAS Conference is established to facilitate the state-of-the-art research, innovation and development activities at the frontiers of Artificial Intelligence circuits and systems. It serves as the best platform allowing scholars, technological researchers and industry from both domestic and international communities to exchange experiences, demonstrate their studies and further advance AI technologies on circuits and systems.

This conference brings together members of our communities to broaden their knowledge in emerging areas of research at the field of Artificial Intelligence and the circuits and systems. The three-day program for AICAS 2019 is multidisciplinary in topics including but not limited to:

  1. Circuits and systems for AI
  2. Deep learning/machine learning/AI algorithms
  3. Tools/Platforms for AI
  4. Architecture for AI computing
  5. Edge and cloud AI computing platforms
  6. Hardware accelerators
  7. Neuromorphic processors
  8. Hardware/software co-design and design automation for AI systems
  9. Advanced neural network design
  10. Emerging applications: Deep learning for Internet-of-Things
  11. Emerging applications of AI: Medical AI
  12. Emerging applications of AI: Autonomous Vehicle
  13. Emerging applications of AI: Smart Factory and Environment

Authors of selected best papers will be invited to submit extended versions of their work for publication in IEEE JETCAS & IEEE TBioCAS special issues
