For more than 30 years, the combined annual Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits has been the world’s premier mid-year conference for microelectronics technology, providing an opportunity for the world’s top device technologists, circuit and system designers to exchange leading-edge ideas. Held together since 1987, the Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits have alternated each year between sites in the US and Japan, enabling attendees to learn about new directions in the development of VLSI technology & circuit design through the industry’s leading research and development presentations.
The comprehensive technical programs at the two Symposia – fully overlapping again this year – are supplemented with short courses, invited speakers and several evening panel sessions. Since 2012, the Symposia have presented joint focus sessions that include invited and contributed papers on topics of mutual interest to both technology and circuit attendees. A single registration enables participants to attend both Symposia.
