CALL FOR PAPERS FOR JANUARY-FEBRUARY 2007
IEEE Design & Test seeks original manuscripts for a special issue on Biochips, scheduled for January- February 2007. Biochips and biosensors are becoming increasingly popular for DNA analysis, clinical diagnostics, and detection and manipulation of bio-molecules. Biosensor systems automate highly repetitive laboratory tasks by replacing cumbersome equipment with miniaturized and integrated devices, and they enable the handling of small amounts (for example, nanoliters) of fluids. Thus, they are able to provide ultra detection at significantly lower costs per assay than traditional methods.
The 2003 International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors (ITRS) clearly identifies the integration of electrochemical and electrobiological techniques as one of the system-level design challenges that the industry will face beyond 2009. Efforts are underway in the electronics design automation community to identify synergies between biochips and microelectronics CAD. The 2005 Design, Automation, and Test in Europe (DATE) conference included a well-attended "Biochips Day" event. A special session on bioMEMS took place at the 2004 IEEE/ACM Design Automation Conference. The 2005 IEEE/ACM/IFIP International Conference on Hardware-Software Co-design and System Synthesis (CODES-ISSS) included a special session on biochips and bioinformatics. The IEEE Transactions on CAD published a special issue on microfluidics-based biochips in February 2006. The 2006 DATE conference will co-host a workshop on biochips CAD.
D&T's special issue on
biochips will focus on design, integration, and test issues related to
Industrial experiences and case studies are especially welcome.
To submit a manuscript, please
access Manuscript Central, http://cs-ieee.manuscriptcentral.com,
and select Special Issue on Biochips. If you wish to participate as a
reviewer, please contact email@example.com.
submissions schedule is as follows:
Acceptable file formats include MS Word, ASCII or plain text, PDF, and PostScript. Manuscripts should not exceed 5,000 words (with each average size figure counting as 150 words toward this limit), including references and biographies; this amounts to about 4,200 words of text and five figures. Manuscripts must be doubled-spaced, on A4 or 8.5-by-11 inch pages, and type size must be at least 11 points. Please include all figures and tables, as well as a cover page with author contact information (name, postal address, phone, fax, and e-mail address) and a 150-word abstract. Submitted manuscripts must not have been previously published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere, and all manuscripts must be cleared for publication. Accepted articles will be edited for structure, style, clarity, and readability. Please read IEEE Design & Test author guidelines at http://www.computer.org/dt/author.htm.
