VLSI-TSA 2009 : International Symposium on VLSI Technology, Systems, and Applications
Call For Papers
The Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) will sponsor the 16th International Symposium on VLSI Technology, Systems and Applications (2009 VLSI-TSA) from 27 to 29 April 2009 at the Ambassador Hotel in Hsinchu, Taiwan. The symposium program will cover 2.5 days technical sessions including 3 plenary talks, two special sessions focusing on Green Devices and Next Generation Lithography, and numbers of contribution sessions followed by a half-day short course. The Best Student Paper Award for the 2008 Symposium will be presented at the opening of the symposium and the Best Student Paper Award for the 2009 Symposium will again be selected during the conference.
The conference is proud to create an annual platform for technical exchanges by experts from all over the world on the advancements in semiconductor research, development, and manufacturing.
With its Hsinchu Science-based Industrial Park, in 2007 Taiwan generating over 68.0% of the global semiconductor foundry revenue, 25.1% of the world DRAM production revenue, 23.7% of fabless revenue, and 53.0% 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-TSA technical programs as well as the culture tour to experience historic Hsinchu city, in which the technical and cultural atmosphere have been harmoniously connected.
The 2008 VLSI-TSA has successfully attracted about 500 attendees with a very high-quality program featuring three keynote speeches, two special sessions, 22 invited talks, nine technical sessions with 54 technical papers presented, and two short courses. Both the contributing and invited papers are of high quality, and are presented by industrial and academic leaders and students from over 10 countries..
Starting 2006, the VLSI-TSA split its design segment to become the International Symposium on VLSI Design, Automation and Test (VLSI-DAT). For details about 2007 VLSI-DAT, please visit the website at http://vlsitsa.itri.org.tw

BEST STUDENT PAPER AWARD
Starting 2005, the VLSI-TSA Symposium presented the Best Student Paper Award to one paper that is best-written and presented by a full time student. The conference committee has decided to present the Award annually. The paper will be evaluated by technical committee members both on students' written papers as well as their oral presentations during the conference. The selected Best Student Paper Award will be granted in the next conference. Students must indicate with their submission that they would like to be considered for this award.
