TAU 2018

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

March 15-16, 2018
Monterey, 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-fifth in the TAU series, the TAU 2018 workshop emphasizes novel aspects of timing and power analysis as well as optimization with special invited talks.

TAU 2018 is organizing a timing contest. The topic for the TAU 2018 contest is an extension to Timing macro-modeling, similar to last year, but with added emphasis on the efficiency of both model generation and model consumption. Winners of the contest will be awarded plaques as well as cash prizes!
