  • Managing QoS

  • Reliability issues

  • Security issues

  • Design methodologies and tools

NoC Analysis, Optimization, and Verification

  • Power, energy, and thermal issues

  • Benchmarking and experience with NoC-based systems

  • Modeling, simulation, and synthesis

  • Verification, debug, and test of NoCs and NoC-based systems

  • Metrics and benchmarks

NoC Applications

    • Mapping of applications onto NoCs

    • Real and industrial NoC case studies

    • NoCs for FPGAs, structured ASICs, CMPs, and MPSoCs

    • NoC designs for heterogeneous systems

NoC at System-level

  • Design of memory subsystem

  • NoC support for memory and cache access

  • OS support for NoCs

  • Programming models including shared memory, message passing, and novel programming models

  • Large-scale systems (datacenters and supercomputers) with NoC-based systems as building blocks

Emerging NoC Technologies

  • Wireless, Optical, and RF

  • NoCs for 3D and 2.5D packages
