The 2008 IEEE Symposium on VLSI Technology will take place in the Hilton Hawaiian Village, in Honolulu, Hawaii, on June 17-19.
The IEEE Symposium on VLSI Technology is one of the most prestigeous conferences on VLSI devices and processes. It is also a very competitive and tough conference. Papers should always be innovative enough regarding VLSI devices. Some of the topics explicitly mentioned in the Call for Papers are "process/device modeling" and "theories and fundamentals" related to VLSI devices. Therefore, researchers in device modeling (including compact modeling) can submit papers to the IEEE Symposium on VLSI Technology, but it should be remarked that these models or theories should be real breakthroughs.
The Chairman is Professor Jason Woo, from UCLA, an outstanding researcher in semiconductor devices, with a lot of experience in device modeling.
The deadline is January 7.
There will be a Best Student Paper Award. The Symposium will cover the travel mexpenses and registration fee for the award recipient to attend the 2009 Symposium.
The IEEE Symposium on VLSI Technology will be held in conjunction with the IEEE Symposium on VLSI Circuits, which is one of the top conferences in the field of integrated circuits. This Symopisum is also very demanding and competitive. Papers should be really breakthroughs to be accepted.
Well, despite the symposium is so demanding, it is worthy to work hard to make a suitable paper for this Symposium. And it is also a good opportunity to enjoy some days in Honolulu!
