COOL Chips is an International Symposium initiated in 1998 to present advancement of low-power and high-speed chips and systems. The symposium covers leading-edge technologies in all areas of microprocessors  and their applications. The COOL Chips 25 is to be held in Tokyo on April 20-22, 2022, and is targeted at the architecture, design and implementation of chips with special emphasis on the areas listed below. All papers are published online via IEEE Xplore. Especially, selected papers are encouraged to submit to the IEEE Micro and the special section in the IEICE Transactions on Electronics.

Contributions are solicited in the following areas:

  • Low Power-High Performance Processors for AI, IoT, Multimedia, Digital Consumer Electronics, Mobile, Graphics, Encryption, Robotics, Automotive, Networking, Medical, Healthcare, and Biometrics.
  • Novel Architectures and Schemes for Single Core, Multi/Many-Core, NoC, Embedded Systems, Reconfigurable Computing, Grid, Ubiquitous, Dependable Computing, GALS and 3D Integration.
  • Cool Software including Parallel Schedulers, Embedded Real-time Operating System, Binary Translations, Compiler Issues and Low Power Application Techniques.

Proposals should be organized  in a full paper format (6 pages) or an extended abstract format (up to 3 pages) describing the topic to be presented.  Both full papers and extended abstracts will be reviewed and judged under the same criteria (originality, significance, technical soundness, and superiority of results) and selected to deliver a more attractive program for the audience.

If the proposal is a not-yet-announced product, and you would like to keep the submission confidential, please indicate it. We will do our best to maintain confidentiality.  Proposals will be selected by the program committee’s evaluation of interest to the audience.  Please prepare the proposal using the given guidelines and template.  Submission should be made through website.

Call for Posters

You are invited to submit proposals for a poster session. Submission should be made through website. Detailed instructions will be uploaded here.

Before finishing the submission process, please make sure that it is set to the submission for poster presentation.

Extended abstract submissions should be ONE page, formatted using standard two-column IEEE format. In addition, one page may be added optionally for figures or tables only. Please be careful not to put the main text of your abstract into the additional second page.

They are refereed primarily based on their relevance to the conference. We welcome submissions presenting works in progress or reporting preliminary results, in any of the conference themes. Accepted abstracts will be published in the Proceedings of the COOL Chips 25.

All poster presenters will be given the opportunity to present their work in short talks at Lightning Talk Session. Therefore, at least one of the authors must be registered at the conference.

  • March 25, 2022 Poster Abstract Submission (through website)
  • March 28, 2022 Poster Acceptance Notified (by e-mail)
[Best Poster Award]

Speaker of the best poster of COOL Chips, IEEE Symposium on Low-Power and High-Speed Chips, will be awarded as the “Best Poster Award of COOL Chips.”

Award Committee:
Chaired by COOL Chips Poster Chair
Members:
PC Chairs, Vice Chair and Poster Chair
(Ryusuke Egawa, Yasutaka Wada, Ryohei Kobayashi, Ryuichi Sakamoto and Koji Hashimoto)

Award Selection:
We would like to select the best poster award from the poster presentations presented during the Lightning Talk session and actively engaged in interactive discussions.
Award winner is selected based on voting of the attendees, and the Award Committee will finalize the Award winner.
