14th IEEE/ACM International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS 2020)

Change of Venue and Dates

NOCS 2020 | September 24-25, 2020 | Hamburg, Germany
NOCS 2021 | October 14-15, 2021 | Shanghai, China
co-located with ESWEEK!

In view of the current Covid-19 virus situation, the ESWEEK Steering Committee has decided to swap the venues for ESWEEK 2020 and 2021. As a result, NOCS 2020 will now also be held in Hamburg, Germany from September 24-25, 2020, and NOCS 2021 will be held in Shanghai, China from October 14-15, 2021. The 2020 submission deadlines will remain unchanged. In case travel restrictions remain in place by September 2020 due to the Covid-19 virus, we plan to provide a mechanism for all affected authors of accepted papers to present remotely. We apologize for any inconveniences due to this rapidly evolving situation.
