MANHASSET, NY --The 2012 Symposia on VLSI Technology & Circuits will feature joint circuit and technology focus sessions for the first time, including design in scaled technologies; design enablement; memory technology and design; and 3-D (TSV) and heterogeneous integration.
The annual joint symposia are mid-year gatherings for semiconductor engineers to discuss advancements in microelectronics technology and circuits.
The two symposia overlap specifically to provide the opportunity for technologists and circuit/system designers to interact and attend presentations by each other, according to the organizers from respective IEEE societies.
The VLSI Technology Symposium, which began in1981 and the VLSI Circuits Symposium in 1987, are rotated annually between Japan and Hawaii.
The 2012 events in Hawaii are June 12-14 (Technology) and June 13-15 (Circuits).
The Calls for Papers has a paper submission deadline of January 23, 2012.
