The PhD Forum of VLSI-SoC 2019

PhD Forum

You can view or download the PhD forum call for papers here

VLSI-SoC 2019’s Ph.D. Forum is a poster session aimed at 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 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.


PhD Forum submission: June 12, 2019
Notification of acceptance: June 30, 2019
Camera-Ready: July 10, 2019

Posters will be introduced in the Ph.D. Forum Session (two-minute time slot, one slide) and next presented in a full one-hour Poster Session.


Accepted posters will be given two pages in the soft proceedings.


The PhD forum selection committee will review all presented posters and recommend one poster for the Best PhD Forum Poster Award. We will have awards for second and third places as well.


VLSI-SoC 2019 finances a limited number of travel grants for Ph.D. students, through the Technical Committee TC-10 (Computer Systems Technology) and WG 10.5 of the International Federation for Information Processing - IFIP. In principle, grants are restricted to support students who cannot be fully supported by their institutions. This rule gives preference to students being enrolled in Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Asia (except Israel, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and China).


Submit a two-page extended abstract of your research work in PDF format. Send submissions via EASYCHAIR platform of VLSI- SoC2019 until May 31. Paper format should be compliant with the guidelines for regular papers.
