Guest Editorial: Special Issue On Emerging Technologies in Computer Design

Ozgur Sinanoglu, Umit Ogras
2021 IEEE Transactions on Emerging Topics in Computing  
IEEE International Conference on Computer Design (ICCD) invited the highest ranked papers to be included in this special issue of IEEE Transactions on Emerging Technologies in Computing (TETC) in 2017. These papers describe original work on practical and theoretical work covering system and computer architecture, test, verification and security, design and technology, and tools and methodologies. Papers were submitted and reviewed under five tracks in ICCD 2017: 1. Computer Systems and
