In December 1985, a group of about eighty-five delegates assembled on the campus of the Indian Institute of Technology, Chennai to attend the First International Workshop on VLSI Design. The sole purpose of that meeting was to sense the level of VLSI activities in India with a focus on engineering education and research. It started with only 193 Proceedings along with 29 presented papers and just one tutorial.
Since then, the conference has come a long way and has grown equilaterally with the VLSI community and has seen the likes of multinational Industries and academic contributors, from all around the globe. The numbers speak for themselves and have amplified to ten-fold the initial attendees, proceedings, presented papers and tutorials.
VLSI Design Conference History
Embedded Systems Design Conference History
VLSI Design Conference started as a simple idea in 1985: to sense the level of VLSI activities in India with a focus on engineering education & research. Over the years, the conference has grown equilaterally with a VLSI community that includes the likes of Multinational Industries, Academic contributors and Government bodies around the globe. With its global footprints VLSID is recognized as a 'Sister Conference' of Design Automation Conference. This conference is sponsored by VLSI Society of India (VSI).
