# CALL FOR PAPERS

**The submission is closed.**

Authors are invited to submit papers describing recent advances on all aspects of computer arithmetic, including, but not restricted to the following topics:

- Foundations of number systems and arithmetic;
- Arithmetic processor design and implementation;
- Arithmetic algorithms and their analysis;
- Highly parallel arithmetic units and systems;
- New floating-point units and systems;
- Standards for number representation and arithmetic;
- Impact of high-level languages on arithmetic systems;
- Special function implementation;
- Low power arithmetic; and
- Applications of Computer Arithmetic to cryptography, DSP, data compression, computer graphics, etc.

PDF version of the complete paper should be submitted in electronic
form, following the
instructions posted at the conference web site:
http://www.lirmm.fr/arith18/submission.html
no later than **Oct. 15, 2006 at midnight (CET)**
(extended deadline).

The paper must be anonymous, with no author names, affiliations, acknowledgments, or obvious references. It should begin with a title, a short abstract, and a list of keywords, and its introduction should summarize the contributions of the paper at a level appropriate for a non-specialist reader.

Finally, a statement confirming that the paper has not been submitted elsewhere must be sent by email to Peter Kornerup (kornerup@imada.sdu.dk).

Acceptance will be notified in February 2007, and final camera-ready papers will be due in March 2007. Conference proceedings will be available at the Symposium.

## A NOTE ON PAPER FORMATTING

Submissions should conform to the maximum length requirement for the proceedings of the conference, eight pages, two columns, but for reviewing should preferably be formatted in normal article style: about 20 pages, 12pt, single column, double spacing. This is just for a rough estimation of length. Authors of papers exceeding 20 pages, 12 pt, single column, double spacing, who think that their submission will fit the final conference page limit, are kindly requested to check their manuscript size using the formatting style found at http://computer.org/author/transguide/transstylefiles.htm

The final submissions cannot exceed 10 pages (corresponding to 8+2 extra charged pages). For Authors' convenience, and by courtesy of the IEEE Computer Society, the formatting styles can also be found here.
