ACM Journal on Emerging Technologies in Computing Systems (JETC)

Publisher: Association for Computing Machinery

JETC invites submissions of original technical papers describing
research and development in emerging technologies in computing
systems. Major economic and technical challenges are expected to
impede the continued scaling of semiconductor devices. This has
resulted in the search for alternate mechanical, biological/
biochemical, nanoscale electronic, and quantum computing and sensor

As the underlying nanotechnologies continue to evolve in the labs of
chemists, physicists, and biologists, it has become imperative for
computer scientists and engineers to translate the potential of the
basic building blocks (analogous to the transistor) emerging from
these labs into information systems. Their design will face multiple
challenges ranging from the inherent (un)reliability due to the self-
assembly nature of the fabrication processes for nanotechnologies,
from the complexity due to the sheer volume of nanodevices that will
have to be integrated for complex functionality, and from the need to
integrate these new nanotechnologies with silicon devices in the same

The journal provides comprehensive coverage of innovative work in the
specification, design analysis, simulation, verification, testing,
and evaluation of computing systems constructed out of emerging
technologies and advanced semiconductors.

Topics include, but are not limited to:

* Logic Primitive Design and Synthesis: how to design computational
logic primitives from the new nanotechnologies, and design tools
supporting their effective design and verification,

* System-Level Specification, Design and Synthesis: how to
interconnect these computational primitives to build complete
information systems, and design tools for specifying, synthesizing,
and verifying such systems,

* Software-Level Specification, Design and Synthesis: how to
develop the necessary software so that applications can be
effectively mapped onto information systems implemented using these
new nanotechnologies, and tools for generating and verifying the
software, and

* Mixed-Technology Systems: how to interface across potentially
hybrid nanotechnologies that may co-exist in the same information
