Special Session

[SS #1]

Session Title: Solutions for Mobile and Normally-off Computing Systems
Organizer: Prof. Toru Shimizu (Keio University, Japan)

Abstract: A Normally-Off Computing approach to get the higher energy efficiency and low power dissipation are remarkable technique for the both high performance computing and the embedded computing. This special session covers the recent advancements of Normally-off computing techniques that are efficiently applied to 1) mobile application processor, 2) Internet of Things (IoT) systems, 3) Sensor node applications, 4) low power micro-controller, and 5) STT-MRAM based cache memory systems.

[SS #2]

Session Title: SIC2015 Project - Vision/Multimedia SoC
Organizer: Prof. Yun-Ho Jung (Korea Aerospace University, Korea)

Abstract: This session consists of the international collaborative research results of System IC 2015 (SIC2015) project funded by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE), Korea. The topic mainly covers the SoC design for vision and multimedia applications. For example, the HOG based pedestrian detector, SIMD implementation results of single image defogging, ROI reduction scheme, semantic image segmentation, wireless power transmitter, and HEVC codec are presented.

[SS #3]

Session Title: Design, Analysis and Tools for Integrated Circuits and Systems (DATICS)
Organizer: Prof. Ka Lok Man (Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University, China)

Abstract: DATICS workshops/special sessions were initially created by a network of researchers and engineers both from academia and industry in the areas of Design, Analysis and Tools for Integrated Circuits and Systems (DATICS). The proposed DATICS-ISOCC’15 special session will focus on emerging Circuits and Systems (CAS) topics that will strongly lead human life revolutions, especially in CMOS technologies, communication technologies and biomedical technologies. Human life revolutions come along with economic opportunities. The market for these emerging topics is also forecast to grow to a multi-billion dollar market in the coming decade. The special session will highlight the potential and current developments of these CAS topics, along with pressing challenges. The proposed session is coherent and complementary to the conference theme and areas of interest of ISOCC. The main target of DATICS-ISOCC’15 is to bring together engineering researchers and people from industry to exchange theories, ideas, techniques and experiences.

Session Title: SIC2015 Project - Mobile/Automotive SoC
Organizer: Prof. Yun-Ho Jung (Korea Aerospace University, Korea)

Abstract: This session consists of the research results from System IC 2015 (SIC2015) project funded by the Ministry of Trade, Industry and Energy (MOTIE), Korea. The topic mainly covers the SoC design for mobile and automotive applications. For example, the baseband modem SoC for mobile satellite service, moving object detector for automotive systems, HD LCoS backplane for micro-display, sensor hub MCU for smartphone, HEVC CABAC encoder are introduced.

[SS #5]

Session Title: Advanced Silicon Based RF and mm-wave Circuit Designs
Organizer: Prof. Kiat Seng Yeo(Singapore University of Technology and Design (SUTD), Singapore)

Abstract: RF and Millimeter-wave circuits and systems based on advanced silicon technology draw much attention recently due to its low cost for commercial applications, low operation power for portable applications and high integrality with digital and analog circuits. This session is solicited for RF and millimeter-wave circuits design based on advanced CMOS process and SOI high K silicon process for the RF and millimeter-wave application. The topic covers advancement of the CMOS SOI techniques, 60GHz Doherty Power amplifier, DC~50GHz SOI based SPDT switch, 60GHz low noise amplifier, SOI low noise amplifier and high efficiency CMOS Class E amplifier etc.

[SS #6]

Session Title: Neuromorphic devices, circuits, and systems
Organizer: Prof. Kyeong-Sik Min(Kookmin University, Korea) and Prof. Fernando Corinto (Politecnico di Torino, Italy)

Abstract: More than half a century, Dennard’s device scaling has been one obvious way of improving energy efficiency every technology node. Nowadays, as we get closer to the end of device scaling, we need to search for new ways to continue the energy efficiency improvement without help from the device scaling. As one possible way of improving energy efficiency in post-Dennard scaling era, neuromorphic devices, circuits, and systems are introduced and discussed in this special session. Here, new hardware design and architecture of speech recognition SoC will be presented. And, hardware neural networks and cellular neural networks which are based on memristor nanotechnology will be introduced in this session. In addition, neuromorphic device characterization and neuromorphic crossbar circuits will be discussed.

[SS #7]

Session Title: Technology for Sports
Organizer: Prof. Daihyuk Choi and Jinwook Burm (Sogang University, Korea)

Abstract: We have witnessed the technology developments and their applications to change human life. In the era of Internet of Things (IoT), the technologies penetrate deeply into our daily life to be applied in a way that has not been possible before. The benefit of modern technologies have also promoted sports and its industry to the next level. With the help of new technologies, a systematic approach with physical data becomes possible to enhance physical activities of mankind. The special session ”Technologies for Sports” is organized to share the current status of sports technologies so that the participants would acquire interests and insights of the field for the further improvements of sports technologies.
