PhD Forum

The VLSI-SoC 2012's Ph.D. Forum is a poster session dedicated to the exchange of ideas and experiences of Ph.D. students from different parts of the world. Elected Ph.D. students have an opportunity to discuss their thesis and research work with specialists within the system and design automation communities. This exchange offers a good opportunity for students to receive valuable feedback and gain exposure in the job market. Furthermore, this forum also provides a great chance for industry officials to meet junior researchers, giving an avenue for incorporating the latest research developments into their companies.

IFIP has provided a limited amount of travel subsidy for PhD Forum participants from developing countries. Inquire with for details.
