Hardware implementations of them are becoming more important for real-time operations. In this session, efficient architectures and implementations of ADAS core functionalities are presented.

[SS #3] (13:45~15:15) October 24, 2016

Session Title : Challenges and opportunities for future memory circuits and systems of Internet of Things
Organizer : Prof. Kyeong-Sik Min Kookmin Univ., Seoul, Korea

Abstract : As IoT technology comes to our life, we need to handle and manage very large amount of data. This big-data era reminds us to think of memory technology once again, which gives us not only technical challenges but also market opportunities for future memory-driven IoT hardware.

[SS #4] (16:00~17:30) October 24, 2016

Session Title : Sensor and sensor system for IoT
Organizer : Prof. Shimizu Keio University, Tokyo, Japan

Abstract : Sensors and sensor systems are significant components of IoT. As edge computing nodes cooperating with cloud computing, they collect various kinds of sensing data, analyze the data and transfer meaningful information extracted from the data. This session focuses on sensors, sensor controls and system solutions of sensing for IoT.

[SS #5] (8:00~9:00) October 25, 2016

Session Title : Hardware Security for Intelligent Things
Organizer : Noriyuki Miura Kobe Univ., Kobe, Japan

Abstract : Security and privacy is one of the most critical issues in the coming future IoT era. Intelligent things with multiple sensors will be distributed and permeated all around into the human life space, where very sensitive so that critical information is collected and transferred autonomously over the internet. To protect such precious information from malicious attackers, network security based on cryptographic processing is one primary importance. However, all the information is anyway finally managed and processed by IC hardware. The importance of hardware security is rapidly getting increased these days. This special session covers overview and recent topics of IC-level hardware security.

[SS #6] (8:00~9:00) October 25, 2016

Session Title : Computational Devices, Circuits and Systems
Organizer : Li Qiang University of Electronic Science and Technology of China, Chengdu, China

Abstract : Computing is one of the most important applications of integrated circuits and systems. In recent years, various emerging devices, circuits and systems have been developed for computing. In this session, we will discuss the topics including multi/many core system on chip,circuits and systems for heterogeneous computing. etc.

[SS #7] (13:45~15:30) October 25, 2016

Session Title : Design, Analysis and Tools for Integrated Circuits and Systems (DATICS)
Organizer : Ka Lok Man Xi'an Jiaotong-Liverpool University in Suzhou, 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’16 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’16 is to bring together engineering researchers and people from industry to exchange theories, ideas, techniques and experiences.

[SS #8] (13:45~15:30) October 25, 2016

Session Title : Embedded software for Internet of Things
Organizer : Jaejin Ko Korea Electronics Technology Institute (KETI), Gyeonggi-do, Korea

Abstract : As the fourth industry revolution is coming to us, the embedded system and embedded software are becoming more important technology factor in overall industry. Embedded systems range from portable devices such as digital watches and MP3 players, to large stationary installations like traffic lights, factory controllers, and largely complex systems like hybrid vehicles, MRI, and avionics. Complexity varies from low, with a single microcontroller chip, to very high with multiple units, peripherals and networks mounted inside a large chassis or enclosure. In this session, especially, we will discuss the topics of wearable device and vehicular ECU (electronic control unit) system.
