Submissions Due: 12 March 2023

Important Dates

  • Submission Deadline: 12 March 2023
  • Publication: Late 2023 (tentatively) 

Authors are invited to submit a manuscript to the Special Section on Emerging and Impacting Trends on Computer Arithmetic. Relevant topics of interest to this special section should be in an emerging and impacting domain of computer arithmetic. Topics include (but not limited to):

  1. Foundations of computer arithmetic: emerging number systems and their applications, novel arithmetic algorithms and their analysis and applications.
  2. Efficient, low-power, or high-performance novel implementations of computer arithmetic in software and hardware: integer or floating-point operations, elementary and special functions, multiple-precision computing, interval arithmetic, finite field arithmetic, etc.
  3. Novel floating-point algorithms, properties of floating-point arithmetic in emerging domains and applications.
  4. Computer arithmetic in emerging standards, high-level languages, and compilers.
  5. Test, verification, formal proof, computer aided design (CAD) automation and fault/error-tolerance for computer arithmetic implementations.
  6. New arithmetic paradigms, architectures, and implementations for emerging technologies, for FPGAs or configurable logic, and for non-conventional computing systems.
  7. New arithmetic paradigms and architectures for specific application domains such as cryptography, security, Internet-of-Things, neural networks, deep learning, signal processing, computer graphics, multimedia, computer vision, high-performance computing, finance, etc., and emerging application domains.
  8. New arithmetic paradigms and architectures for specific application domains such as privacy, cryptography, security, Internet-of-Things, applied artificial intelligence and deep learning, social computing, signal processing, high-performance and distributed computing, health systems, etc., and emerging application domains.
  9. Inexact and stochastic arithmetic algorithms, architectures, and applications.

Submitted papers must include a new significant contribution to computer arithmetic (simple applications of known computer arithmetic methods to other domains will not be considered). Submitted papers must include significant methodological contents, as well as both a clear evaluation of the proposed methods (based on models and/or implementation results) and comparisons with the state of the art. All the papers, including those of theoretical nature, must have clearly identified and demonstrated real world applications.

Submission Guidelines

For author information and submission criteria for full papers, please visit the Author Information page. As stated there, full papers should be 4900 – 7200 words in length. Please submit full papers through the ScholarOne system, and be sure to select the special-issue name. Manuscripts should not be published or currently submitted for publication elsewhere. There should be no more than 15 references. Related work should appear in a special separated box. Please submit only full papers intended for peer review, not opinion pieces, to the ScholarOne portal.

This special section is launched in the framework known as J1C2 (Journal 1st, Conference 2nd). In order to have their submitted manuscript considered for review, authors should clearly state in their cover letter that should the paper be accepted to the special section, at least one of the authors agrees to register to the 30th IEEE International Symposium on Computer Arithmetic (ARITH) 2023 (, which will be held as an in-person event, and present the work in a regular session. This does not apply to extended versions of already published conference papers, for example in previous editions of the ARITH conference.

Due to space restrictions, timing constraints, or other compelling reasons, it is not guaranteed that all accepted submissions will be published in the conference-related section/issue of the journal. Authors of submissions receiving a minor revision recommendation after the first round of review will be allowed to resubmit a revised version for a second round of review. It is worth remembering that a “minor revision” decision is NOT to be interpreted as a “conditional acceptance” decision. As per IEEE policies and procedures, any submission to TETC can be rejected at any point in the review process. Authors of submissions receiving a major revision recommendation could continue with the submission of their major revised work for further review and possible publication in a future regular issue of the journal, but will be neither presented at the conference nor will be considered for inclusion in the special section.

Guidelines on submission and LaTeX/Word templates can be found here.  Papers beyond 12 pages will be subject to mandatory overlength page charges (MOPC), as per CS policies. The bibliography should not exceed 45 items and each Author’s bio should not exceed 150 words.
Specifically, kindly comply with the detailed policies on MOPC and bibliographies (including self-citations).
