The 2009 IEEE Symposium on VLSI Technology will be held from June 15 to June 17 at Rihga Royal Hotel in Kyoto, Japan.
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 "processes and device modeling of VLSI devices" 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 deadline is January 14.
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 Symposium is also very demanding and competitive. Papers should be really breakthroughs to be accepted.
Besides, a satellite workshop, the 2009 Silicon Nanoelectronics Workshop, will be held at the same location as the VLSI Symposia on June 13-14 2009.
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 Kyoto, one of the most beautiful cities in Japan!
