About VLSID Conference
VLSI Design Conference was initiated as a simple idea in 1985 to recognize the level of VLSI activities in India, focusing on engineering education & research. Thirty seven years have passed after its 1st conference at the Indian Institute of Technology-Madras. Over the years, the conference has grown in all dimensions with a VLSI community that includes the likes of multinational industries, academic contributors, and government bodies around the globe. This conference is backed up by sponsorships from all the major VLSI and embedded houses. Also, this premier conference is well participated by all other industry players, industry bodies and all professors/students from elementary engineering schools in India and abroad. VLSI Design conference is now the largest forum for academia and industry to exchange new ideas and showcase innovations. The global footprints of VLSID are recognized as a ‘sister conference’ of the Design Automation Conference (DAC). Over the past three decades, the VLSI industry in India has grown rapidly. As a result, the VLSI conference started joint meetings like ASP-DAC in 2002 and Embedded Systems Conference in 2003. Spin-off meetings like the VLSI Design & Test (VDAT) Symposium and IEEE International Workshop on Reliability Aware System Design and Test (RASDAT) were also conceived to cater to the growing needs of the hour. VLSI Society of India (VSI) was founded in 1990 to support Indian ambition in VLSI-related fields. Now VLSI Design conference is backed by the VLSI Society of India (VSI) and the India Electronics and Semiconductor Association (IESA).
About VLSID 2024 Conference
The 37th International Conference on VLSI Design & the 23rd International Conference on Embedded Systems (VLSID 2024) are being held at Kolkata, India, during January 6-10, 2024. VLSID 2024 is returning to the city after 8 years since 2016. This flagship conference is bringing worldwide industry leaders, Indian and international industry bodies, and academic researchers in a common platform.
In the present era of automation and connected things, VLSI technology armed with AI and Quantum could be pivotal in changing the VLSI landscape starting from manufacturing to devices to design. To elaborate on this paradigm shift, the theme 2024 VLSI Design conference is aptly chosen to be “VLSI meets AI and Quantum for Cyber Physical Systems”.
Brilliant minds across the VLSI domain will brainstorm during the conference to redefine the future course of VLSI Design and Embedded research and application in India. Kolkata (Known as Calcutta during the British Imperial rule) is surrounded by several premier technical and scientific institutes like IIEST Shibpur (B. E. College, Shibpur), IIT Kharagpur, ISI Calcutta, Calcutta University, Jadavpur University etc.
East and north-eastern region of our country is a hub of innovation with a focus on emerging technologies. Over the years the region has generated huge number of ESDM professionals and academicians who are right now fuelling the growth of ESDM industry. It is high time to operationalize state level high technology clusters in the field of VLSI design, embedded systems, cognitive system design and silicon/display/compound fab. VLSID 2024 provides the unique stage where MNCs, start-ups, industry bodies and academicians come together and get synergized with what the states of this region have to offer.
Over a span of five-days of VLSID2024, the summit will feed brains and nurture minds with state-of-the-art exhibitors, presentations, panel discussions, innovation forums, and tutorials by established technologists.
