For the last 44 years, the IEEE Symposium on VLSI Technology & Circuits has delivered a unique convergence of technology and circuits for the microelectronics industry. Merged into one Symposium since 2022 to maximize the synergy across both domains, the 2024 IEEE VLSI Symposium on Technology & Circuits has announced a call for papers around the theme: “Bridging the Digital & Physical Words with Efficiency & Intelligence.” The five-day event will be fully in-person with live sessions at the Hilton Hawaiian Village, Honolulu, Hawaii, on June 16 – 20, 2024, as well as on-demand access to technical sessions starting the following week. The Symposium will feature the latest VLSI technology developments, innovative circuit design and the applications they enable, such as artificial intelligence, machine learning, IoT, wearable/implantable biomedical applications, big data, cloud/edge computing, virtual reality/augmented reality, robotics and autonomous vehicles.

The Symposium submission site will open on December 5, 2023, and the deadline for paper submissions is February 5, 2024, at 23:59 PST.

The IEEE VLSI Symposium on Technology & Circuits seeks papers focusing on technical innovation and advances in the following areas:

  • Advanced CMOS Platforms, Interconnectand Backside Power Delivery Network (BSPDN) Technologies
  • Advanced Packaging, Chiplet and Heterogeneous Integration Technologies Including 2.5D & 3D
  • Analog and Mixed-Signal Circuits
  • Beyond CMOS Devices That Utilize New Physics Including Spin, Optical and Quantum Computing
  • Biomedical Devices, Circuits and Systems
  • Data Converters
  • Device Physics, Characterization, Modeling and Reliability
  • Devices and Accelerators For ML/DL and New Compute
  • Digital Circuits, Hardware Security, Signal Integrity and I/Os
  • DTCO and Design Enablement
  • Frequency Generation and Clocking Circuits
  • Memory Technologies, Devices, Circuits and Architectures
  • Power Management Devices and Circuits
  • Processes and Materials for CMOS Scaling and New Devices
  • Processors and SoCs
  • Sensors, Imagers, IoT, MEMS, Display Circuits
  • Wireless and RF Devices, Circuits and Systems

The symposium will continue its reputation as the microelectronics industry’s premier international conference integrating technology, circuits and systems with a range and scope unlike any other conference. In addition to the technical presentations, the symposium program will feature a demonstration session for outstanding papers, evening panel discussions, joint focus sessions, Short Courses and workshops on specific topics relevant to the symposium theme.

Special events at the symposium include career mentoring events for Women in Engineering and Young Professionals sponsored by the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the Solid State Circuits Society and a traditional Hawaiian luau celebration.

Best Student Paper Awards for each track of the symposium are chosen based on the quality of the papers and presentations. The recipients will receive a monetary award, travel cost support and a certificate. For a paper to be reviewed for this award, the lead author and presenter of the paper must be enrolled as a full-time student at the time of submission, and must indicate on the web submission form that the paper is a student paper.
