The VLSI-Soc 2007 Conference’s Ph.D. Forum is a poster session aimed at the exchange of ideas and experiences of Ph.D. students from different parts of the world. Elected Ph.D. students have an opportunity to discuss their thesis and research work with specialists within the system and design automation communities. This offers a good opportunity for students to receive valuable feedback and gain exposure in the job market.
Furthermore, this forum also provides a great chance for industry officials to meet junior researchers, giving an avenue for incorporating the latest research developments into their companies.
The author must have completed at least one year of a Ph.D. program.
Posters will be introduced in the Ph.D. Forum Session (two-minute time slot, one slide) and next presented in a full one-hour Poster Session.
Accepted abstracts will be published as papers (six pages maximum) in a separate VLSI-SoC'07 Ph.D. CD-ROM Proceedings.
Grants for PhD students
VLSI-SoC 2007 finances a limited number of travel grants for Ph.D. students, through the Technical Committee TC-10 (Computer Systems Technology) of International Federation for Information Processing of United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization. In principle, grants are restricted to support students who cannot be fully supported by their institutions. This rule gives preference to students being enrolled in Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe including Russia, and Asia (except Israel, Japan, Singapore, South Korea and Taiwan). The percentage covered by a grant is typically at least 50 percent of the total cost.
How to Apply
Submit a one-page extended abstract of the dissertation and one page for figures in PDF format. The one-page limit on the abstract text and figures is strictly enforced. Send submissions to email@example.com before July 15, 2007.
