The 21st European Conference on Circuit Theory and Design will consist of plenary lectures, regular, special and poster sessions. It will focus on recent trends and advances in circuit design, including but not limited to:

  • Devices
  • Computational Methods
  • Nanoscale Devices & Circuits
  • Circuits
  • Mathematical Methods
  • Communication Circuits
  • Systems
  • Signals
  • Neuromorphic & Biomedical Circuits

For regular sessions, authors are invited to submit 4-page Full Papers according to posted guidelines. Only electronic submissions will be accepted via the submission page. Registration of at least one author will be required for each accepted paper.

Information for Presenters

Talks: Presentation time will be 20 min. Please plan for 15 min presentation and 5 discussion.

For the presentation, MS Office 2010,, and a PDF reader will be available. The presentation files have to be transferred to our presentation computer in the break before the session – please contact the session chair 15 min before the session start. Usage of your own computer is strongly discouraged.

Posters: Poster format is A0 (upright). Tape for attaching your poster to the panel is provided. Please put effort in your poster presentation, as a clear and concise poster simplifies discussion greatly. We strongly discourage printing out your slides and attaching them as poster.

Demos: We provide a table, poster wall and 230V German Schuko wall plug. Please plan accordingly.

Call for Special Sessions

The program will include Special Sessions, aiming at complementing the regular program with emerging topics of interest to the circuit design community. The organizing committee welcomes submissions focused on mobile communications, digital communications, multimedia systems, biosystems, sensor interface, mm-wave circuits and systems, design methodologies and modeling of advanced technologies devices and circuits, management and optimization of circuit power and energy, bad experiences. In general, any topic aligned to interest of the IEEE CAS society is welcome. The first paper of each Special Session will provide an introduction to the field and will target a non-specialist audience.
Prospective organizers of Special Sessions should submit a proposal indicating:

  • Title of the session
  • Rationale of the need for the Special Session, stressing on the novelty of the topic and its multidisciplinary aspects (if any)
  • Short biographies of the session organizers
  • List of five contributed papers, including: titles, authors, contact information of the corresponding author, and a short abstract of each contribution
  • Preliminary full version of the overview paper

Best Student Paper Award

Any M.Sc. or Ph.D. student who is the sole or first author of an accepted paper with her/his advisors and co-advisors can apply for the student paper award. The student has to be registered, have proof of his status, attend the conference and present the paper. The evaluation will be based on referees’ reports and the decision will be made jointly by the ECCTD 2013 Organising Committee.

Call for Demos

The Live Demonstrations of Circuits and Systems session offers the possibility for an interactive form of presentation. This gives authors a chance to get people significantly more involved with the results of their research than in regular talk sessions. The demonstrations will be provided with table + pin wall booths with ample space to set up a working system, may it be interactive software on a laptop, a hardware setup or even a robot. Prospective demonstrations could be either on work that has already been published or on research that will be published concurrently in ECCTD this year. For demonstrations of already published work a one-page demo description is required. Submissions with anticipated simultaneous publication in ECCTD 2013 are required to add their regular format full 4-page paper and combine these two documents to a single 5-page PDF file for submission. Both will be reviewed independently.

The paper should contain:
Demonstration setup: Describe the equipment that you will bring to ECCTD. Include a photograph and/or a screenshot. Only a power plug, a table and pin wall will be provided. Preparing an explanatory poster for the pin wall is highly recommended.
Visitor experience: Explain the way in which a visitor experiences and interacts with your demonstration, how it reveals the essence of your work, furthers understanding, and what the visitor will learn.
