The Scopes of the Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits, including Joint Focus Sessions, are described in the Calls for Papers.

Symposia Demo Session

The Symposia Demo session will be video-based and open to a wide range of authors. The demo session will provide the opportunity to show pre-recorded demonstrations and prototypes of research projects, corresponding to all relevant topics of the Symposium. Those who wish to submit their paper(s) to Demo Session, please answer “Yes” to the question in “5. Questionnaires” at the time of Online Submission.

Below is the link to the Author’s Guide that provides a detailed description for paper preparation for submission. PDF of Author’s GuideWord Document of Author Guide The paper must be in final form, and if accepted, will be published without any modifications.

150 Word Abstract

The abstract is a brief synopsis of your paper. It will be used by the Symposium Technical Program Committee in press releases and pre- Symposium publicity. The abstract should be typed in the Technical Paper Submission Form directly. You must enter plain ASCII text only, and you may not exceed 150 words. Neither tables nor figures may appear in the abstract.

 Important Notice

Papers will be considered on the basis of originality, innovation, and advancing the field. Prototype implementation and measured results will be considered favorably in the ratings. *Your complete paper must occupy no more than two pages including illustrations. Submitted papers, which exceed this length, will not be accepted for review. Each page can contain about 700 words and two illustrations (assuming each illustration is two- column format). A page could contain as many as six illustrations if they are sized accordingly. When preparing the final pages, please follow carefully the instructions in the Author’s Guide. Please avoid the use of special Asian fonts in the main body text, figures, charts, and tables in the paper submission. The authors can use the first page for text and the second page for pictures. *You must have approval from your organization before submitting your paper to the VLSI Symposia. The VLSI Symposia views as an unprofessional practice the withdrawal of a paper once it has been submitted by the author, accepted by the Program Committee, and widely announced in the Advance Program. Withdrawal of a paper or failure to present a paper at the Symposia after the Advance Program is distributed jeopardizes both the Symposia credibility and the author’s professional reputation.

 Notification of Review Result

If accepted for presentation, the content of the paper must not be announced or published prior to the Symposia. The Technical Program Committee will review all submitted papers and authors will receive notification of the Committee’s decision around the end of March 2021.

Copyright Transfer Form

Copyright Transfer Form must be submitted to the VLSI secretariat, once your paper is accepted. Detailed information will be given in the acceptance letter. We thank you for your interest in the Symposia on VLSI Technology and Circuits. If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact the Conference Office.
