Monday March 23th – We have been closely following the evolution of the COVID-19 outbreak and it has become obvious that even if the current restrictions on people’s movement across the globe were to be lifted soon, there won’t be enough time for most of us to resume plans to attend NEWCAS2020 in June. Therefore, and as the safety and well-being of all participants is of outmost importance to us, we have decided to postpone the conference to

November 2 – 4, 2020 (tutorials on November 1st)

in the hope of more appropriate conditions to hold the event. We understand that this new schedule might not be ideal for some participants and we will think of flexible publication criteria for authors who will not be able to modify their agenda.

We apologize for any inconvenience this course of action might cause. Do not hesitate to contact the conference secretariat (newcas2020@resmiq.org) with any questions and we invite you to continue visiting newcas2020.org for updates and further information.

Kind regards and stay safe,

Yvon Savaria
General Chair

The topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Analog/mixed-signal circuits
  • Biomedical circuits and systems
  • CAD and design tools
  • Communication circuits and systems
  • Test and verification
  • RF & microwave circuits
  • Computer architecture and memory
