5th European Workshop on Bio-Inspired Heuristics for Design Automation

EvoHOT focuses on innovative heuristics, game theory and bio-inspired techniques (eg. EA, SA, AIS, NN, ants) applied to the Electronic Design Automation.

The workshop goal is to show the latest developments; industrial experiences; successful attempts to
evolve rather than design new solutions; hybridizations of traditional methodologies.

  • EvoHOT topics include, but are not limited to:
  • Analog circuit design
  • Automatic test pattern generation
  • Built-in self test
  • Evolutionary design of electronic circuits
  • Evolutionary hardware design methodologies
  • Evolutionary robotics
  • Evolvable hardware
  • Floorplanning
  • Hardware/Software co-design
  • Hybrid evolutionary/exact approach
  • Hardware accelerated methodologies
  • Logic synthesis
  • Routing
  • Test program generation

Publication details
Accepted papers will be published in a volume of the
Springer Lecture Notes in Computer Science together with papers from other workshops of the EvoStar conference.
