VLSI Design
The 26th International Conference on VLSI Design: concurrently with the 12th International Conference on Embedded Systems Design – is a forum for researchers and designers to present and discuss current topics in VLSI design, electronic design automation, embedded systems, and enabling technologies. Two days of tutorials will be followed by three days of regular paper sessions, special sessions, and embedded tutorials. Industry presentation sessions along with exhibits, panel discussions, Design Contest, and Education Forum round off the program.

The joint conference will feature full-day and half day tutorials on topics of current interest in VLSI design, EDA, VLSI technology, and embedded systems.

topics of interest

Proposals for tutorials are invited on topics related to, but not limited to:

VLSI Design and Methodologies:
Analog and RF mixed signal design, Synthesis, DFT and test, Verification (simulation and formal), Design for manufacturability and yield, Power analysis and low-power design, Thermal analysis and temperature aware design, Physical design, packaging and board design, technology CAD, CMOS sensors and MEMS, nanoscale computing and nano-electronics, High performance computing, Multi-core and parallel architectures, Networks-on-chip, FPGA-based design.
Embedded Systems:
Audio, Image and Video processing, Hardware/Software co-design and verification, reconfigurable systems, applications in DSP, communications, encryption, security, compression, hybrid systems-on-chip, embedded software tools, case studies, ESL design flows.
Theme based – Green technology:
Energy-efficient design, ultra-low-power, cross layer power management, smart grids, data centers, green technologies.

Co-ordinating presenters are encouraged to submit full day or half day tutorial proposals through the conference web site by 24th July, 2012 in the format specified below and this also includes the embedded tutorials. All tutorial proposals will undergo a peer review process. Hence, the proposals must adhere to the specified format.


Please submit proposals online (in text or pdf format) to comprehensively cover the following details:

  • Tutorial title and short summary (in about 200 words).
  • Name, affiliation and contact details of the co-ordinating presenter and all other co-presenters.
  • The targeted audience and prerequisites (in about 50 words).
  • Keywords from those listed in the topics above, or otherwise.
  • Detailed tutorial program, with a list of topics covered, a short description of each topic and the approximate time devoted to each topic (in about 2000 words). (Full day tutorials will be six hours and half day tutorials will be three hours ).
  • Indicate if the proposal is for full day tutorial or half day tutorial or embedded tutorial.
  • Technical bibliography (with emphasis on the authors' works and other related works being covered).
  • List of tutorial material to be provided to the attendees.
  • Short biographical sketch of each presenter indicating previous experience in delivering lectures and tutorials, and expertise on the tutorial topic. (About 200 words for each presenter).


  • It is imperative that all presenters listed in the tutorial proposal be available for presentation on the day of the tutorial. (This can be either January 5th or 6th, 2013). Hence, it is important that consent be obtained from all the presenters and all organizational approvals obtained for presenting and also for travel before making the tutorial proposal.
  • The honorarium for the tutorial presenters will be determined at a later time and hence presenters should keep this mind while planning for travel to the conference.
  • All material from individual presenters must be collated and combined into a single tutorial presentation, as per the presentation guidelines (to be communicated at the time of acceptance).

For any questions, please contact the Tutorial Co-Chairs.
