2021 VLSI-TSA Call for Papers

                                                                       Call for Papers

The 2021 International Symposium on VLSI Technology Systems and Applications (VLSI-TSA) will be held on April 19-22, 2021 at the Ambassador Hotel, Hsinchu, Taiwan. The symposium has been kicked-off since 1983. It is a premiere conference in Taiwan and received up to 1,000 participants every year. It provides a unique opportunity to network with VLSI leading experts worldwide. Original and unpublished papers on all aspects of advanced VLSI technology and applications are solicited.

Hsinchu City: The well-known Taiwan’s Silicon Valley is based with clusters of world-class high Tech. IC manufacturing and design. It is one-hour driving distance from Taipei, 40 minutes from the airport. Industry attendees may take this opportunity to visit Science Park business unit and academia attendees may visit major universities/Institutes of Taiwan, either in Hsinchu, or down to the south by the high speed train within one hour.

COVID-19 Watch: 2021 VLSI-TSA is planned for an in-person/on-site event. In the meantime, we will keep Hybrid meeting (same as 2020) if COVID-19 still keeps a threat to the convention, i.e., arranging overseas presenters to provide a pre-recorded video for presentation on condition that they render into travel restrictions.
