TAU 2020

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

March 19 - 20, 2020
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-seventh in the TAU series, and on its 30th anniversary, the TAU 2020 workshop emphasizes novel aspects of timing and power analysis as well as optimization with special invited talks.

Due to COVID-19 precautions TAU 2020 is cancelled

Due to concerns over the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, many companies have put in place travel restrictions for all their employees. This has resulted in attendance to TAU 2020 dropping below the minimum to justify to holding TAU this year.

Given this we, the organizing committee, have decided that the best decision we can make for TAU and the health and safety of all attendees is to cancel the conference. We will refund everyone's registration fees over the next few days.

NOTE that if you registered with the hotel, you'll need to cancel your reservation directly with the Hyatt: +1 831 372 1234.

We apologize for any inconvenience this might cause.

We thank you for your interest in TAU 2020 and look forward to seeing you at TAU 2021.

With apologies from the TAU 2020 Organizing committee:

General chair: João Geada (ANSYS)
Technical program chair: Paul Pereira (Qualcomm)
Past general chair: Song Chen (Synopsys)
Contest chair: Jignesh Shah (Intel)
