Article By : VLSI Design

VLSID 2022 brings together key stakeholders—industry, academia, researchers, regulators—in the semiconductors and electronics ecosystem.

The 35th International Conference of VLSI Design and the 21st International Conference on Embedded Systems (VLSID 2022) is scheduled between February 26 and March 2, 2022. This year’s theme for the conference is “Silicon Catalyzing Computing, Communication and Cognitive Convergence”.

Staying true to its legacy of shedding light on technology innovation and world-class research in the areas of semiconductors, VLSI, and embedded systems, VLSID 2022 brings together key stakeholders in the ecosystem—industry, academia, researchers, innovators, and regulators—in the space of semiconductors and electronics. This platform will feature global visionaries and leaders discussing and envisioning the latest advancements in silicon driving AI/ML, 5G, IoT, edge computing, data centers, quantum computing, electric vehicles (EV), and compound semiconductors, among others, to unleash the potential of these technologies and set a direction along with a roadmap of semiconductors in India. This five-day conference will feature two days of tutorials and three days of the conference

The VLSID Annual Conference has been an eagerly awaited event in the electronics and semiconductor industry. With several leading experts in the committee, the technology conference aims at providing an excellent platform to several industrial and scientific researchers via thought-provoking sessions, unique knowledge-sharing and engaging discussions on innovations and achievements related to VLSI design, automation, test, and embedded systems.

“The Indian Semiconductor and VLSI ecosystem is critical for empowering the $1 trillion digital economy and will play a key enabler role for India’s Semiconductor Vision. All stakeholders including the industry, government, and academia need to come together to create a vibrant design-led manufacturing of semiconductor products leveraging the progressive policies of the government and pave the way for “real” self-reliance in electronics and semiconductors. The VLSI Design conference has been providing a great platform for last 35 years for both global and Indian semiconductor technology ecosystem and this year’s conference will continue to provide the leadership with the focus on technologies like AI/ML, 5G, Edge, IoT, EV and many others.”

The conference will feature 14 eminent global visionary leaders, including industry veterans, as keynote speakers. The list includes Dr. Nick McKeown, SVP & GM, Intel; Dr. Suk Hwan Lim, EVP, Samsung; Joe Sawicki, EVP, Siemens; Dr. Philip Wong, Stanford; Ken Wiseman, VP, Qualcomm; Sanjive Agarwala, Corporate VP & GM, Cadence; Daisy Chittilapalli, President – Cisco India & SAARC; Shankar Krishnamoorthy, GM, Synopsys; Prof. Jason Cong, UCLA; Prof. Andrew B. Khang, UCSD; Prof. Ramgopal Rao, IIT Delhi; Prof. Subhasis Chaudhuri, IIT Bombay; and Sonam Wangchuk, HIAL.

“Silicon is increasingly becoming a pivot in digital arena. Silicon and Electronics solutions for the societal and engineering challenges is of utmost priority, especially now that we are all trying to build back after the COVID setback. Through this conference, we leverage our domain knowledge and expertise to handhold all budding and promising talented professionals, and connect them with industry veterans who will further support them in identifying opportunities, challenges, new markets and their overall journey of transforming the sector,” Anil Kempanna, General Chair, International VLSI & Embedded Systems Conference 2022 and VP & GM – IOTG, Intel.

The symposium will also showcase over 30 exhibitors who will be displaying their latest products and 53 scientific papers from over 300 submissions globally, focused on rapid advances in computing, connectivity, storage, and sensors, which have resulted in path breaking developments in the areas such as AI/ML, 5G, compound semiconductors, EV, cloud, edge computing, and more unique solutions in new technology domains as well.

“With the world increasingly becoming more connected, we see tremendous opportunities to emphasize the potential of the VLSI and embedded systems community. VLSID 2022 will continue to provide an encouraging platform by acknowledging achievers and propel unique opportunities to the next level, by bringing together community experts, leaders and all key stakeholders under one umbrella,” said Lakshmi Narayana Kethamreddy, General Chair, International VLSI & Embedded Systems Conference 2022 and VP & Head – Foundry BU, Samsung Semiconductors India R&D Centre.

The VLSID conference attracts more than 2,000 global attendees and more than 300 different organizations (both industry and academia) participate in this biggest conference in the electronics and semiconductors domain.
