The Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits are two closely connected international conferences on semiconductor technology and circuits, thereby offering an opportunity to interact and synergize on topics of joint interest, spanning the range from process technology to systems-on-chip.[1] [2] [3] [4] [5] [6] [7] [8] [9] [10] The Symposia take place once a year around the middle of June at locations alternating between Kyoto, Japan and Honolulu, USA. They bring together managers, engineers, and scientists from industry and academia around the world to discuss challenges in manufacturing and design of Very-large-scale integration (VLSI) circuits.[11] The Symposium on VLSI Technology started in 1981 while the Symposium on VLSI Circuits was established in 1987.[12] Beside regular presentations of technical papers, the Symposia comprise short courses, panel sessions, and invited talks conducted by experts in the field from both Industry and Academia.

Sponsors[edit]

The Symposium on VLSI Technology is sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the Japan Society of Applied Physics in cooperation with the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. The Symposium on VLSI Circuits is sponsored by the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society and the Japan Society of Applied Physics in cooperation with the Institute of Electronics, Information and Communication Engineers and the IEEE Electron Devices Society. Extended versions of selected papers from the Symposium on VLSI Circuits are regularly published once a year in a special Issue of the IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits. [13]

Symposia 2015[edit]

The 2015 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits will be held at the RIHGA Royal Hotel, Kyoto, Japan between Monday, 15-Jun-2015 and Friday, 19-Jun-2015.

  • 1st Call for Papers for Technology and Circuits
  • Joint technology and circuits sessions are planned covering design in scaled technologies, design enablement, memory technologies, and 3D-integration (TSV).
  • For the first time, the circuits symposium encourages submissions of papers beyond the chip context in areas related to IoT sensing, industrial electronics, big data processing/storage systems, and robotics and smart car.

Symposia 2014[edit]

The 2014 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits were held at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, Hawaii between Monday, 09-Jun-2014 and Friday, 13-Jun-2014.

  • Advance Program
  • Joint circuit and technology focus sessions were offered in the following special topics of mutual interest: 3D Circuits & Applications, 3D Systems & Packaging, Design/Technology Co-Optimization, Non-volatile & Emerging Memory, and SRAM & DRAM.[14] [15]
  • This year, a Luncheon & Executive Panel did debate on "Emerging Semiconductor Industry Trends and Implications" (Link)
  • A joint technology-circuits panel session addressed the question: "Who Gives Up on Scaling First: Device & Process Technology Engineers, Circuit Designers or Company Executives? (Link)
  • The 2014 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits were preceded by three full-day short courses: "High Performance Mobile SoCs Enabled by 10nm SoC Technology" (Link), "Advanced Data Converter & Mixed-Signal Circuit Design", and "Advanced Energy-Efficient Digital Design" (Link).
  • Also, the Symposia were accompanied by two satellite workshops, the 2014 Silicon Nanoelectronics Workshop (June 8–9) and the 2014 Spintronics Workshop on LSI (June 9) at the same location.

Symposia 2013[edit]

The 2013 Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits were held in Kyoto, Japan between 2013-06-11 and 2013-06-14 with more than 1000 microelectronics engineers, managers and researchers attending. [16] [17] [18] [19] [20]
