VLSID2017 Fellowship

The 30th International Conference on VLSI Design and the 16th International Conference on Embedded Systems will bring together stakeholders from industry and academia to present advances in VLSI Design and Embedded Systems under the theme “Technologies for a Secure and Connected World: Cloud Computing and the Internet of Everything”.

This conference is a unique international platform that’s a confluence of all stake holders of the ecosystem – Industry, Academia, Researchers, Innovators, Regulators – coming together to present and discuss current topics in VLSI Design, Electronic Design Automation, Electronic System Design and Enabling Technologies, in the form of intensive tutorials, extensive presentations sessions along with exhibits, panel discussions, design contest, Ph. D. forum and user forum.

To encourage the Electronics Engineering faculty members and research scholars who are actively contributing to education and research in VLSI Design and Embedded Systems thus helping the industry in the long run, the organizing committee of VLSID2017 is happy to announce the availability fellowships to deserving candidates to help them to interact with industry experts, tap the knowledge from the innovative minds, share their experiences and then fuel the further research growth and increase the interest among the students in the core technologies of VLSI Design and Embedded Systems.
