Call For Papers


ISSCC 2013 is the 60th Conference in an incredibly long-lasting series. Following the invention of the transistor in 1947, there was a developing interest in ransistorcircuit design. This coalesced in 1954, with the creation of the first “Conference on Transistor Circuits”, held in Philadelphia, sponsored by the IRE, one of the predecessors of the IEEE. Since then, transistor-circuit design which evolved into integrated-circuit design has changed the world like no other technology ever has. Propelled by this sixty-year history, ISSCC 2013 will provide a special opportunity for looking back to the future, toward further exciting developments in solid-state circuits and systems. ISSCC remains the premier forum in the world where circuit innovations are presented. In this role, ISSCC will continue to (em)power the future! Innovative and original papers are solicited in subject areas including (but not limited to) the following:

ANALOG — Op-amps and instrumentation amps, baseband amplifiers, comparators, multipliers, voltage references; power-control circuits, regulators and DC-DC converters; continuous-time and discrete-time filters; consumer electronics, non-linear analog circuits, switched-capacitor circuits; synthesizers, PLLs.

Submission Deadline is Monday, September 10, 2012 • 3:00PM Eastern Daylight Time (19:00 GMT)

Graduate students are particularly invited to participate in events that provide an opportunity to showcase both their completed and early work, and exchange experiences with other students and researchers from academia and industry. Beyond participating in the regular paper sessions, there are opportunities in both the Student Research Preview and the Academic Demonstration Session, as well as participating in the ISSCC Silkroad Award competition. (The Silkroad Award is presented to first-time student presenting authors from an emerging region in the Far East.)
