Ken Takeuchi - 2021 Circuits Symposium Chair

We cordially invite you to attend the 2021 Symposium on VLSI Circuits that will be held from June 13th to June 19th, 2021 with a fully virtual format. The 2021 Symposium is the 35th Symposium on VLSI Circuits, where industry and university engineers and researchers from all over the world report innovative circuit/system techniques of VLSIs. The Symposium is recognized as one of the premier international conferences on Solid-State Circuits, covering a broad range of topics important to VLSI circuit and system designers as well as technology developers. The Symposium will cover digital circuits, processors, SoCs, machine learning accelerators, memories, biomedical circuits, sensors and displays, power conversion circuits, analog circuits, wireless and wireline communication circuits.

As for the symposium structure, the Symposium is committed to the health and safety of speakers, attendees and staff. We have been carefully monitoring latest status and official guidance of the novel Covid-19 and determined to hold 2021 Symposia on VLSI Technology & Circuits with a fully virtual format.

The symposium theme is “VLSI Systems for Lifestyle Transformation”. Even when Covid-19 is recovered in the future, our society may face the drastic lifestyle transformation. People may come to work in more remote manners and are less likely to physically move for both personal and business issues. The microscopic lifestyle change of individual people as well as macroscopic social structure change such as the company organization, city planning and transportation may occur. At the 2021 Symposium, considering these lifestyle transformations, we will discuss how state-of-the-art VLSIs can contribute to such lifestyle and heath transformations.

The Symposium holds the fully overlapped program with the 2021 Symposium on VLSI Technology. The single registration allows all participants to attend both Technology and Circuits sessions, covering state-of-the art device technologies, circuits and systems of VLSIs. The Symposium provides excellent opportunities for interactions among VLSI circuit and technology experts. These rich technical contents will undoubtedly attract you and we are sure that the Symposium will be a fruitful and enjoyable experience for you.
