About the Journal

The Journal of Integrated Circuits and Systems (JICS) is an effort from both Brazilian Microelectronics Society (SBMicro) and Brazilian Computer Society (SBC) to keep a scientific journal intended to present state-of-art papers on microelectronics, covering the fields of Process and Materials, Device and Characterization, Digital and Analog IC Design, Test and EDA, among other relevant topics.
JICS publishes spontaneous submissions - regular papers - as well as selected papers from both Brazilian Societies annual conferences, SBCCI - Symposium on Integrated Circuits and Systems and SBMicro - Symposium on Microelectronics Technology and Devices. Also Special Issues on subjects defined by the Editorial Board are published. Acceptance of papers for publication is subject to a peer review procedure and it is conditional on revisions being made given comments from referees.

JICS publishes 3 issues (numbers) per year, with standard schedule being April (No. 1), August (No. 2) and December (No. 3).

JICS is indexed in Scopus and Scimagojr. It has been recently classified as Qualis A4.
The JICS Journal ISSN are 1872-0234 for its online version (from 2017 on) and 1807-1953 for its printed version (prior to 2017).
Please note that only original work, not published or submitted for publication in a different journal, will be eligible.

 The topics of interest are (but not limited to):  

   _ Processes & Materials
   _ Devices & Characterization
   _ Modeling & Simulation
   _ Analog & Digital IC Design
   _ System Design, MPSOC, NOC
   _ High-level Synthesis
   _ HW & SW Codesign
   _ EDA - Logic & Physical Synthesis
