CLOSED Call for Papers: Special Section on Emerging and Impacting Trends in Computer Arithmetic

Share this on:
Submissions Due: 6 February 2022

Authors are invited to submit a manuscript on an emerging and impacting domain of computer arithmetic. Topics include (but are not limited to):

  • Foundations of computer arithmetic: emerging number systems and their applications, novel arithmetic algorithms and their analysis and applications.
  • 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.
  • Novel floating-point algorithms, properties of floating-point arithmetic in emerging domains and applications.
  • Computer arithmetic in emerging standards, high-level languages, and compilers.
  • Test, verification, formal proof, computer aided design (CAD) automation and fault/error-tolerance for computer arithmetic implementations.
  • New arithmetic paradigms, architectures, and implementations for emerging technologies, for FPGAs or configurable logic, and for non-conventional computing systems.
  • 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.
  • Inexact and stochastic arithmetic algorithms, architectures, and applications.

Submission Guidelines

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 potential applications.

Papers under review elsewhere are not acceptable for submission. Extended versions of published conference papers (to be included as part of the submission together with a summary of differences) are welcome, but there must be at least 40% new impacting technical/scientific material in the submitted journal version and there should be less than 50% verbatim similarity level as reported by a tool (such as CrossRef). Papers not meeting all the above requirements will be administratively rejected.

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 29th IEEE International Symposium on Computer Arithmetic (ARITH) 2022 (, which will be held as a virtual 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.

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.

For author information and guidelines on submission criteria, please visit the TETC Author Information page. Please submit papers through the ScholarOne system, and be sure to select the special-section name. Please submit only full papers intended for review, not abstracts, to the ScholarOne portal.
