For the third time, ASYNC is co-located with the ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Networks-on-Chip (NOCS 2012). The two conferences are back-to-back, ASYNC runs May 7-9, and NOCS runs May 9-11. We hope that attendees will find the time to attend both conferences, and we hope attendees will appreciate avoiding some travel. We received 44 regular paper submissions, of which 18 were accepted for final publication and presentation at the symposium. The program chairs were impressed by the quality and range of submissions. The Program Committee members and external reviewers provided four in-depth reviews of each submission. The selection process emphasized novelty of contribution. We are pleased to see several newcomers amongst the authors whose papers have been accepted. The final program is wideranging, covering: performance analysis and optimization; processor case studies; asynchronous memories; synthesis and CAD; arithmetic circuits; GALS and signaling; and fault tolerance. The call for papers also invited submissions for two special tracks: "Asynchrony in biology-inspired computing" and "Industrial applications of asynchronous design."
