The 13th International Conference on Synthesis, Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Methods and Applications to Circuit Design (SMACD 2016) will be held from the 27th to the 30th of June 2016 in Lisbon, Portugal at the IST Congress Center.

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. SMACD 2016 is Technically Co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE CEDA and IEEE CAS. All accepted papers will be published in IEEE Xplore.
