This workshop provides a forum to discuss current practices as well as near-future research aimed at addressing the ever-growing problems of variability/reliability and their impact on design performance and cost. The scope of the workshop further covers the detailed technical aspects of variability/reliability characterization, including compact modeling, stochastic simulation, test structure design, statistical CAD, and resilient design. The workshop also provides an opportunity to discuss modeling and characterization needs for emerging device technologies. Compared with other workshops, VMC strives to highlight the existing links among device technology, device physics, device modeling, technology CAD, and related circuit design issues. The topics of the workshop include the following:
• Fundamental device physics and device engineering
• CAD tools: modeling, simulation, and tool integration
• Design interface: design impact and characterisation techniques

In this year's version of the VMC workshop, the focus will be on three areas that are at the interface between machine learning and variability modeling and characterization.

These areas are:
1. Data Mining for Variability
2. Rare Data and Variability
3. Machine Learning and Variability

Aside from invited presentations on the above three topics, the workshop will also feature poster presentations by the larger community in response to a call-for-posters that will be issued in early September 2018.
