A CAS Journal Track Symposium

The International Symposium on Integrated Circuits and Systems (ISICAS) invites high-quality submissions for presenting original works in the areas of integrated circuits and systems. Topics in the areas of analog, digital, power, energy, biomedidical, sensor interfaces, and communication systems are welcome. The submissions must describe integrated implementations, in hybrid, SiP, or SoC forms of circuits or systems with experimental results. Manuscripts not compliant with the above requirements (for instance, purely theoretical works or papers supported by simulation results only or manuscripts describing circuital implementations at discrete level) will not be reviewed and will be returned to the authors.

After the success of the first Symposium, the second will be larger and involve an additional journal. The Symposium will not produce proceedings as all the accepted papers will be published in Special Issues of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems – Part I (TCAS-I), IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems – Part II (TCAS-II), and IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (TBioCAS) shortly after the results are presented at ISICAS 2019.

Prospective authors should submit their manuscripts either to TCAS-I, TCAS-II or TBioCAS. All submitted manuscripts will be subject to the standard review process of the corresponding journal and must be prepared following the respective instructions for authors. Refer to the Information for Authors page of the respective journal for further details. The authors of the Accepted manuscripts, and those subject to (straightforward) Minor Revision at the time the ISICAS 2019 Technical Program is drawn up, will be asked to present their work at the Symposium. The focus of the Symposium will be on peer-to-peer interactions and technical discussions in a pleasant and stimulating environment.

Conference Venue

Hilton Molino Stucky

The conference venue is the Hilton Molino Stucky, a Neo-Gothic building in Venice, on the western end of Giudecca island, near the ancient village Fortuny. It was built between 1884 and 1895 by the Swiss businessman Giovanni Stucky, whose father had married into the Italian Forti family and moved to the Veneto, and designed by Ernst Wullekopf. It was first built as a flour mill supplied by boats across the lagoon and also operated as a pasta factory.

The 379 room Hilton Molino Stucky, recently renovated, offers over 2,500 sq. m. of flexible conference and exhibition space. It has been awarded at World Travel Awards as Europe's Leading Conference Hotel & Italy's Leading Conference Hotel for six years in a row from 2013 to 2018. The meeting rooms and the breakout areas are equipped with modern technology and WiFi.

Giudecca 810, 30133 Venezia (IT)

Instructions for Authors

As the ISICAS symposium will not produce proceedings, all the accepted papers will be published in three Special Issues of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems – I (TCAS-I), of the IEEE Transactions on Circuits and Systems – II (TCAS-II), and of the IEEE Transactions on Biomedical Circuits and Systems (TBioCAS). The ISICAS 2019 paper submission and review process will follow the standard procedure of above journals regular paper submissions.


At least one author per paper must be registered AND attend the conference to present the paper. In case of no-show, the paper will be excluded from the special issue and will not be published.

Paper Preparation and Submission

Prospective authors are invited to submit full length papers consisting of a complete description of their integrated circuits and systems implementations and collected measurement results. Extended versions of previously published recent conference papers with significant additional materials (conforming the rules of TCAS-I, TCAS-II, and TBioCAS – see below) are also welcomed.

Manuscripts must follow the standard single-spaced, double-column IEEE Transactions format, as specified at the following link:

Descriptions, information, and detailed instructions for papers submission for TCAS-I, TCAS-II, and TBioCAS are available at the following links:
