The tenth MEMOCODE conference will attract researchers and practitioners who create methods, tools, and architectures for the design of hardware/software systems.  These systems face increasing design complexity including tighter constraints on timing, power, costs, and reliability. MEMOCODE seeks submissions that present novel formal methods and design techniques addressing these issues to create, refine, and verify hardware/software systems. We also invite application-oriented papers, and especially encourage submissions that highlight the design perspective of formal methods and models, including success stories and demonstrations of hardware/software codesign. Furthermore, we invite poster presentations describing ongoing work with promising preliminary results.


Abstract submission deadline: March 9., 2012 (extended)
Paper submission deadline: March 16., 2012 (extended)
Notification of acceptance: May 4, 2012
Final Version for Papers: May 18, 2012


Topics of interest for regular submissions include but are not limited to


Submissions of research and experience papers will only be accepted through the conference website. Papers must not exceed 10 pages and must be formatted following IEEE Computer Society guidelines. Submissions must be written in English, describe original work, and not substantially overlap papers that have been published or are being submitted to a journal or another conference with published proceedings



MEMOCODE 2012 will have a design contest. The contest will start March 1, 2012. The deadline for submission is 31 March 2012 and the notification of the results is on May 13, 2012. The conference will sponsor at least two prize categories, each with a significant cash award. In past editions we awarded a $1000 prize in each of the two categories. Each team that submits a complete and working entry will be invited to submit for review a 2-page abstract for the formal conference proceedings and present a poster at the conference; winning teams will be invited to contribute a 4-page short paper and present their work at the conference. Each team submitting a completed and working entry will also receive a commemorative plaque with their name and results. Please refer to the website for more information and updates.


Conference proceedings will be published by the IEEE Computer Society.
