Advance Programme of IFIP WG 10.5 Workshop on Applications of the Reed-Muller Expansion in Circuit Design Hamburg, Germany September 16-17, 1993 (between t-Workshop and Euro-DAC) About the Workshop: This workshop focuses on the application of AND-ExOR expressions like the Reed- Muller expansions, the Kroenecker expansions, the Exclusive-OR Sum-of-Products form (ESOPs) and others to various aspects of circuit design and implementation. AND-ExOR expressions are representations of Boolean functions using ExOR polynomials which are known to be of lower complexity and can lead to easier testable implementations than the Sum-of-Products form. The goal of this workshop is to bring together researchers to discuss new approaches in efficient minimization algorithms for AND-ExOR expressions, and to compare OR-based with EXOR-based representations. The Program Committee selected 26 papers. These will be presented in 5 sessions. A session will take 2 hours, 1 hour for 4 oral presentations taking 15 minutes each, and one hour for a poster session. During this poster session each speaker will present his ideas on an additional poster, to allow extended discussions. Also one poster-only presentation will take place during each poster session. The workshop will be held at the University Hamburg, Library of the Dept. of Chemistry (Building No. 32), Martin-Luther-King-Pl. 6, near the Congress Center Hamburg.
