MSE 2017 : International Conference on Microelectronic Systems Education
Conference Series : Microelectronics Systems Education
Call For Papers
MSE-2017 will be held in Banff, Canada May 11-12, 2017
(co-located with Great Lakes Symposium on VLSI).
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 a single track conference with an
interactive poster session, providing each paper excellent exposure. The poster session encourages demonstrations and
hands-on experiences for the attendants to encourage rich discussions. Co-located with the Great Lakes Symposium on
VLSI (GLSVLSI), participants will be provided with a unique opportunity to attend both conferences. This
combination of a technical and an educational conference allows attendants to see what technologies are on the
horizon and discuss how they can be taught effectively in the classroom.
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/many-core 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.
MSE 2017 welcomes two paper submission types: Full papers should not exceed four (4) pages in length. Work In
Progress papers should be limited to two (2) pages in length and should be used to present work in an intermediate
stage, perhaps not fully assessed, for which the authors would like to strike a conversation with the community. All
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.
