Welcome to
15th International Conference on Synthesis, Modeling, Analysis
and Simulation Methods and Applications to Circuit Design

The 15th International Conference on Synthesis, Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Methods and Applications to Circuit Design (SMACD 2018) will be held from the 2nd to the 5thof July 2018 in Prague, Czech Republic at the FNSPE, Czech Technical University in Prague.

SMACD is a forum devoted to Design Methods and Tools for Analog, Mixed-signal, RF (AMS/RF) and multi-domain (MEMS, nanoelectronic, optoelectronic, biological, etc.) integrated circuits and systems.

Experiences with modeling, simulation and synthesis techniques in diverse application areas are also welcomed. Objective technologies include CMOS, beyond CMOS, and More-thavn- Moore such as MEMS, power devices, sensors, passives, etc.
