MSE 2011 : IEEE International Conference on Microelectronic Systems Education
Conference Series : Microelectronics Systems Education
Call For Papers
The IEEE Computer Society International Conference on Microelectronic Systems Education is the premier
conference dedicated to furthering undergraduate and graduate education in designing and building innovative
microelectronics systems. The conference is held in the U.S. in odd years, and in Europe in even years, when it is called
the European Workshop on Microelectronics Education (EWME). MSE is co-located with the Design Automation
Topics of Interest
The MSE conference provides an excellent opportunity for educators and industry to work together to ensure
continued excellence in the field of microelectronic systems. Of particular interest is incorporation of emerging trends
in the microelectronic system industry and research into the classroom.
Papers are invited in (but not limited to) the following areas:
· Pedagogical innovations using a wide range of technologies, including nanometer-scale integrated circuits,
low-power design, nanotechnology, application-specific integrated circuits (ASICs), field programmable gate
arrays (FPGAs), multicore/manycore processors, graphics processing units (GPUs), sensor networks, and
· Educational techniques including novel curricula and laboratories, assessment methods, distance learning,
textbooks, and design projects.
· Industry and academic collaborative programs and teaching.
· Preparing students for industry, entrepreneurship, academics, and/or research.
Papers submitted to MSE 2011 should not exceed four (4) pages in length. Submissions must comply with IEEE
Computer Society formatting requirements. Submissions in pdf or postscript format may be submitted on-line at
www.mseconference.org. Submissions will be judged on originality, appropriateness, technical strength, assessment,
and other relevant criteria. Expanded versions of selected papers will be considered for inclusion in a special issue of
IEEE Transactions on Education based on MSE 2011.
Submission of papers: January 7, 2011
Notification of acceptance March 11, 2011
Submission of final papers April 8, 2011
