VLSI
-
SOC 2014


There is a proposal from Virendra Singh to organize VLSI
-
SOC 2014 in India, Mumbai
(Bombay). Dominique reads some indications rece
ived by e
-
mail. The venu
e would be at
the University premis
es.

In the discussion about the India proposal, the following pros and cons were raised:

-

Pro: VLSI
-
SOC was never in India

-

Con: Mumbai would be less attractive than e.g. Delhi or Bangalore to foreig
n
participants, and that this would lower attendance.

-

Traffic in Mumbai is very difficult

-

Question: what about the presence of local EDA or circuit industry that would
find it attractive to support the event and send participants

?


For lack of information
, the proposal will need to be presented in more
de
tails for
possible approval at the October meeting in Santa
-
Cruz.


Post meeting information: Virendra Singh sent slides the day after the meeting.

They are attached as appendix to these minutes for the WG

inspection.


Ricardo Reis also ment
ions another proposal to have VLSI
-
SOC in Mexico. No details
were provided.

Miscellaneous


-

Fixed address for the conference VLSI

SOC should be arranged to repatriate web
site and information on past events and VLSI
books; and to have a unique entry
point. To be dealt with by the executive committee.

VLSI BOOK 2010 was published last year, it is available.

-

For VLSI 2011, 9 chapters received, 7 have been reviewed, 2 chapters reviews
