The 16th IEEE International Symposium on

Asynchronous Circuits and Systems (ASYNC)

ASYNC is the premier forum for researchers to present their latest findings in the area of asynchronous design.  This year ASYNC is co-located with The 4th ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS 2010).  The two symposia will be hosted by CEA LETI in the MINATEC facilities in the nice Grenoble area located in the French Alps.  The organization and the programs of both symposia will be jointly coordinated, including keynote lectures, tutorials, exhibitions and social events.  (See joint ASYNC-NOCS website for details.)
