TAU 2016

ACM International Workshop on Timing Issues in the Specification and Synthesis of Digital Systems

March 10-11, 2016
Hilton Sonoma Wine Country, Santa Rosa, California

The ACM sponsored TAU series of workshops provide an informal forum for practitioners and researchers working on temporal aspects of digital systems to disseminate early work and engage in a free discussion of ideas. The twenty-third in the TAU series, the TAU 2016 workshop emphasizes novel aspects of timing and power analysis as well as optimization with special invited talks.
