CALL FOR TUTORIALS (Deadline: June 15, 2004):
On-line submission/review

In the previous years, the International Conference on VLSI Design (VLSI) has run a highly successful tutorial program, comprising of different tutorials of current interest to the VLSI design and design automation community. Keeping in mind the popularity and utility of this program, the 18th International Conference on VLSI Design and the 4th International Conference on Embedded Systems Design will also dedicate two days (Jan 6-7, 2005) to full-day tutorials on recent topics in VLSI design, electronic design automation, VLSI technology, and embedded systems design. The tutorial programme will follow the regular conference activities.

Tutorials On-line Submission

On-line submission is managed by Docman (document management system). To submit any information on-line, you must Check-in with a userid and password. A new window will pop up.
