The 14th IEEE Workshop on Silicon Errors in Logic – System Effects SELSE 2018

The 14th IEEE Workshop on Silicon Errors in Logic – System Effects SELSE 2018 (

April 3 – April 4, 2018, Boston, Massachusetts, USA

Important dates:

∙         Abstract submission (mandatory):                      December 20, 2017

∙         Paper submission (for registered abstracts):     January 12, 2018

∙         Authors notification:                                               February 16, 2018

The growing complexity and shrinking geometries of modern manufacturing technologies are making high-density, low-voltage devices increasingly susceptible to the influences of electrical noise, process variation, transistor aging, and the effects of natural radiation. The system-level impact of these errors can be far-reaching especially in safety-critical applications like aerospace and automotive. Growing concern about transient errors, unstable storage cells, and the effects of aging are influencing system and application design. While the computational capabilities of emerging logic and memory device technologies are attractive for several safety-critical applications and new computing philosophies like deep learning become popular, they introduce several reliability challenges that need to be addressed. Additionally, reliability is a key issue for large-scale systems, such as those in data centers and cloud computing infrastructure. This year, we also welcome papers on the system security issues as they relate to and impact system reliability.

The SELSE workshop provides a unique forum for discussion of current research and practice in system-level error management. Participants from industry and academia explore both current technologies and future research directions. SELSE is soliciting papers that address the system-level effects of errors from a variety of perspectives: architectural, logical, circuit-level, and semiconductor processes. Case studies in real-world contexts are also solicited.


Key areas of interest are (but not limited to):

  • Technology trends and their impact on error rates.
  • New error mitigation techniques.
  • Error handling protocols (higher-level protocols for robust system design).
  • Characterizing the overhead and design complexity of error mitigation techniques.
  • Case studies describing the tradeoff analysis for reliable systems.
  • System-level models: derating factors and validation of error models.
  • Experimental data on failures in current and emerging technologies and applications
  • Characterization of reliability of systems deployed in the field and mitigation of issues.
  • Software-level impact of hardware failures.
  • Software frameworks for resilience.
  • Impact of machine learning components on system resilience.
  • Resilient accelerator-rich systems.
  • Inexact or approximate computing as it relates to system errors.
  • (New) Cross-layer resilience techniques.
  • (New) System security issues that impact and interact with system reliability.

CFP – IEEE T-SUSC Special Issue on Low-Power Dependable Computing (LPDC) – Deadline 31.Jan.2017

IEEE T-SUSC Special Issue on Low-Power Dependable Computing (LPDC)
Submission deadline (extended): Jan. 31, 2017

With the continuous technology scaling and miniaturization of computing systems, faults become more common and it is imperative for most modern computing systems to deploy various fault-tolerance techniques. Traditionally, fault tolerance is achieved in general through various error reduction, detection and recovery techniques at different levels (for instance, circuit, architecture, operating systems, compiler and application software) in the systems. On the other hand, fault-tolerance does not come for free, and generally has power/energy/temperature overheads, which warrants careful consideration since power/energy is a first-class system resource and has been emerging as a significant limiting factor for multicore scaling. In particular, understanding the interdependencies between reliability and power are important to consider, e.g., high power consumption may lead to elevated temperature that can further aggravate reliability. In response to these challenges, this special issue seeks original contributions on novel and bold ideas to achieve low-power dependable computing (LPDC).

Topics of Interests: This issue considers the development of models, algorithms and techniques at all levels (from circuits to software) for all components (from memory to computation) from all modern computing systems (from battery-powered embedded systems to large scale reliable servers) to enable energy efficiency and fault tolerance. The topics of interest include, but are not limited to, the following:

* Energy-efficient redundant circuit design
* Energy-efficient fault-tolerant architecture
* Compilation techniques for reliability and low-power
* Runtime management and scheduling algorithms for energy-efficiency and fault tolerance
* Low-power reliable memory and storage systems
* Low-power and reliable on-chip networks and communication
* Mitigating reliability threats (aging, soft errors, process variations) in Dark Silicon chips
* Emerging paradigms for low-power and dependable computing (e.g., approximate computing)
* Case studies on low-power dependable systems

Instructions for Authors: The special issue opens for all submissions.  Submitted papers should not have been previously published nor be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Previously published conference and workshop papers may only be submitted if the paper is substantially extended with at least 30% new material, where the extension requirement of 30% is not in textual volume but in novelty. Active researchers/experts in related areas will be invited for contributions. Authors of accepted papers in the Third Workshop on Low-Power Dependable Computing (LPDC), to be held with International Green and Sustainable Computing (IGSC) in November 2016, will also be invited to submit their extended work. All submissions will go through the same review process and will be treated equally in their consideration for publication.

Papers should be submitted via the Manuscript Central website ( and should follow IEEE T-SUSC author guidelines (, where the page limit is 14 (including figures and references). Moreover, please indicate that you are submitting to the Special issue on Low-Power Dependable Computing (LPDC) on the first page and in the field “Author’s Cover Letter:” in Manuscript Central.

Any questions on this special issue should be addressed to Dr. Dakai Zhu at .
