Hyderabad, Sep 27 (IANS) The 25th international conference on VLSI (very large scale integration) design and 11th international conference on embedded systems will be held here Jan 7-11, 2012.

This silver jubilee conference expects to bring back the spotlight to Hyderabad that hosts the finest multinational players in VLSI design and embedded systems.

The five-day-long conferences are expected to attract more than 2,000 participants and will cover two days tutorial sessions followed by three days of regular paper sessions, special sessions, and embedded tutorials.

Dasaradha, convenor of the conference, told reporters that one of the key features would be the student project contest of “Students Forum” in which over 1,000 students are expected to participate.

“‘Students Forum’ helps the students know their career pathways and understand the technological trends in the industry. Attractive prizes will be given to the winners of the student project contest,” he said.

The conference will enable students to meet industry stalwarts, know the emerging trends in the sector and get clarity in new career opportunities.

The conference also offers a big fellowship programme to support faculty and researchers who are not in a position to arrange for their own funds to attend the conference.

This is the third time that Hyderabad will be hosting the international VLSI design and embedded systems conference in five years.
