For more than two decades, low-power consumption has been paramount for integrated circuits (ICs) and systems-on-a-chip (SoCs). In today’s sub-100 nm technologies, low-power design flows are maturing with techniques, such as clock/power gating, multi-Vt/Vdd assignment, and dynamic frequency/voltage scaling, becoming mainstream. However, further power savings are still needed for extremely power-constrained applications, such as green computing, mobile wireless communications, sensor networks, and biomedical devices. Feasible ways of achieving further power savings include, for example, sub-threshold and ultra-low-voltage operation, SOI technology and circuits, and 3-D and heterogeneous integration. The 2015 IEEE Unified S3S (SOI-3D-SubVt) Conference event gathered researchers studying the aforementioned three topics to share their views and advances regarding lower-power and more efficient ICs and SoCs.
This issue of JLPEA is the fifth special issue dedicated to selected papers from the IEEE S3S Conference 2015 held in Rohnert Park, CA, on October 5-8, 2015. Extended versions of papers presented at the conference will be invited for submission to this special issue. A selection of the invited papers will be made based on their low-power content and their scientific/technical excellence.

Manuscript Submission Information
Manuscripts should be submitted online at www.mdpi.com by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. All papers will be peer-reviewed. Accepted papers will be published continuously in the journal (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as short communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website.
Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are thoroughly refereed through a single-blind peer-review process. A guide for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts is available on the Instructions for Authors page. Journal of Low Power Electronics and Applications is an international peer-reviewed open access quarterly journal published by MDPI.
Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript. The Article Processing Charge (APC) for publication in this open access journal is 350 CHF (Swiss Francs). Submitted papers should be well formatted and use good English. Authors may use MDPI's English editing service prior to publication or during author revisions.
For the IEEE-copyrighted materials published in the S3S proceedings (e.g. figures/tables), the authors are responsible to acquire reprint permissions if they want to use them without significant modifications and to make the following IEEE credit/copyright notice appears prominently in the figure/table caption:
