The 25th International Conference on VLSI Design and the 11th International Conference on Embedded Systems is being held during January 7 – 11, 2012 at Hyderabad.
This year marks the silver jubilee of the VLSI Design Conference and therefore features an overview of the history of the conference by Vishwani D. Agarwal from Auburn University.
The theme this year is Embedded solutions for emerging markets – consumer, energy and automotive.
Jaswinder Ahuja, of Cadence India, and President, VLSI Society of India, delivers the opening keynote on 'Semiconductor industry: Best of times, worst of times, and nowhere else would I rather be!'
Emerging Trends in Process Technologies by Jean Boufarhat of AMD and Samarjit Chakraborty of the Technical University of Munich, Germany, on Challenges in Automotive Cyber-physical Systems Design are two other lectures.
The conference, which features tutorials on 7-8, 2012, really gets going during January 9-11, 2012 and will also see a panel discussion on SoC Realization – A Bridge to New Horizons or a Bridge to Nowhere?
Among other attractions are Intel's Ravi Kuppuswamy on 15 billion by 2015 - Transformation of Embedded Devices to Intelligent Systems; Rajesh Gupta from the University of California San Diego on The Variability Expeditions: Exploring the Software Stack for Underdesigned Computing Machines; Berty Gyselinckx from IMEC, Belgium on A wireless sensor a day keeps the doctor away; Sri Parameswaran from the University of New South Wales on Security and Reliability in Embedded Systems and, Suresh Menon of Xilinx on the FPGA Roadmap: Technology Chalenges and Transitioning to Stacked Silicon Interconnect.
The guest lecture is to be delivered by Rajeev Madhavan, chairman and CEO, Magma Design Automation on The future of Semiconductor Design; What the Indian Electronics Industry can learn from Apple.
Meanwhile, The 3rd IEEE International Workshop on Realiability Aware System Design and Test is also being held at Hyderabad during 7-8, 2012 at Hyderabad, in conjunction with the VLSI Design Conference.
