ISSCC Vision Statement
The International Solid-State Circuits Conference is the foremost global forum for presentation of advances in solid-state circuits and systems-on-a-chip. The Conference offers a unique opportunity for engineers working at the cutting edge of IC design and application to maintain technical currency, and to network with leading experts.
Conference Technical Highlights
On Sunday, February 11th, the day before the official opening of the Conference, ISSCC 2018 offers:
- A choice of up to 4 of a total of 10 Tutorials, or
- A choice of 1 of 2 all-day Advanced-Circuit-Design Forums
The 90-minute tutorials offer background information and a review of the basics in specific circuit-design topics. In the all-day Advanced-Circuit-Design Forums, leading experts present state-of-the-art design strategies in a workshop-like format. The Forums are targeted at designers experienced in the technical field.
On Sunday evening, there are two events: A special Women in Circuits event with distinguished guest speakers followed by roundtable discussions. In addition, the Student-Research Preview, featuring short presentations followed by a poster session from selected graduate-student researchers from around the world will begin at 7:30 pm. introductory remarks at the Preview will be provided by a distinguished member of the solid-state circuit community.
On Monday, February 12th, ISSCC 2018 offers four plenary papers on the theme: “Silicon Engineering a Social World”. On Monday afternoon, there will be five parallel technical sessions, followed by a Social Hour open to all ISSCC attendees. The Social Hour, held in conjunction with Book Displays and Author Interviews, will also include a Demonstration Session, featuring posters and live demonstrations of selected papers from industry and academia. Monday evening will feature two informative and entertaining events.
On Tuesday, February 13th, there are five parallel technical sessions, both morning and afternoon. A Social Hour open to all ISSCC attendees will follow. The Social Hour, held in conjunction with Book Displays and Author Interviews, will also include a second Demonstration Session. Tuesday evening will again feature two informative and entertaining events.
On Wednesday, February 14th, there will be five parallel technical sessions, both morning and afternoon, followed by Author Interviews.
On Thursday, February 15th, ISSCC offers a choice of five all-day events:
- A Short Course entitled “Hardware Approaches to Machine Learning and Inference”
Four Advanced-Circuit-Design Forums entitled
- “Circuits and Architectures for Wireless Sensing, Radar and Imaging”
- “Circuit and System Techniques for mm-wave Multi-Antenna Systems”
- “Advanced Optical Communication: From Devices, Circuits and Architectures, to Algorithms”
- “Advances in Energy Efficient Analog Design”
Registration for educational events on Sunday and Thursday will be filled on a first-come first-served basis. Use of the ISSCC Web-Registration Site is strongly encouraged. Registrants will be provided with immediate confirmation on registration for the Conference, Tutorials, Forums, and the Short Course.
