Late Breaking Results Submissions

DAC is adding a new Late-Breaking-Results (LBR) submission category. LBR provides authors an opportunity to announce new findings that were not available during DAC’s regular paper submission process.

LBR broadly covers all seven technical categories at DAC: (1) automotive electronics design and design automation, (2) design of electronics and systems, (3) embedded systems and software, (4) electronics design automation, (5) Internet of Things, (6) machine learning and artificial intelligence, and (7) security and privacy. Authors should submit a 2-page summary describing the motivation, the proposed approach, and the significant findings. The summary should emphasize the technical novelty of the work and demonstrate its feasibility and efficacy by experimental results. To facilitate blind review, no author information should be disclosed on the 2-page summary.

Prospective authors are invited to submit a late breaking results (LBR) paper (2 pages, two-column format) describing original work. LBR papers should cover new research in any area relevant to the normal paper submission for DAC. Sufficient work must have been completed to indicate viability of the work, but by their nature LBR papers typically outline new and exciting results. Papers must use the template provided on the DAC web site.  Accepted LBR submissions will be presented at a poster session where the LBR poster presenters will showcase their work and get timely feedback from professionals including academia, EDA industries, designers, and makers. At least one author must be present at the poster session. Publication in IEEE Xplore is contingent on registration for the conference and presentation at the poster session. If a paper is chosen to be included in LBR it will also be included in the DAC proceedings.
