2008.04.23 International Symposium on VLSI Design, Automation & Test
The 2008 International Symposium on VLSI Design, Automation & Test (VLSI-DAT) will be held in the Ambassador Hotel, Hsinchu, TAIWAN on April 23-25, 2008. Sponsored by the Ministry of Economic Affair, the Industrial Technology Research Institute and the Ministry of Education, the VLSI-DAT provides a forum for presenting new innovations and achievements related to VLSI design, automation, and test. Original unpublished papers are solicited. Accepted papers will be published by the IEEE after presentation in the symposium.
The VLSI-DAT was spun-off in 2005 from the influential 20-year-old International Symposium on VLSI Technology, Systems, and Applications (VLSI-TSA). The 2007 VLSI-DAT has successfully attracted over 500 attendees with a very high-quality program featuring 3 keynote speeches, 3 invited talks, over 60 technical papers, 3 tutorials on hot topics and 5 invited industrial talks. In 2008, the VLSI-DAT and the VLSI-TSA will be held again in the same week with a one-day overlap.
Hsinchu is the semiconductor capital of Taiwan. Its science-based industry park is home to foundry giants TSMC and UMC as well as many world-leading fabless IC design companies such as Media Tek, Novatek and Sunplus. It is also the home city of the Industrial Technology Research Institute, National Tsing Hua University and National Chiao-Tung University. The VLSI-DAT is an excellent opportunity for VLSI Design professionals and researchers to meet together. Hsinchu is only one-hour bus-ride away from Taipei, the real capital of Taiwan, where great tourist attraction is abundant.
With its Hsinchu Science-based Industrial Park, in 2006 Taiwan generating over 68.4% of the global semiconductor foundry revenue, 25% of the world DRAM production revenue, 23.5% of fabless revenue, and 51.2% of independent IC packaging revenue, Taiwan is doubtlessly one of the major dynamos of the semiconductor industry on this planet. Join us at the VLSI-DAT technical programs as well as the culture tour to experience historic Hsinchu city, in which the technical and cultural atmosphere have been harmoniously connected.
