This Symposium explores emerging trends and novel ideas and concepts in the area of
VLSI. The Symposium covers a range of topics: from VLSI circuits, systems and design
methods to system level design and system-on-chip issues, to bringing VLSI experience
to new areas and technologies like nano- and molecular devices, MEMS, and quantum
computing. Future design methodologies will also be one of the key topics at the workshop,
as well as new CAD tools to support them. Over almost two decades the symposium has
been a unique forum promoting multidisciplinary research and new visionary approaches
in the area of VLSI. The Symposium is bringing together leading scientists and researchers
from academia and industry. The papers from this symposium have been published as the
special issues of top archival journals. This fact indicates a very high quality of the symposium
papers, and we are determined to keep a strong emphasis on this critical aspect of any
conference. The symposium proceedings are published by IEEE Computer Society Press.
Several leading scientists from newly emerging areas of nanoelectronics, MEMS and
molecular, biological and quantum computing will be invited speakers at the symposium.
The Symposium has established a reputation in bringing well-known international scientists
as invited speakers, and this trend will continue.
