About the Symposium

VLSI Design and test VDAT is a flagship event of the VLSI Society of India. This Symposium follows successful organization of nineteen symposiums in previous years. VDAT -2016 is being organized at Indian Institute of Technology Guwahati, India. In true sense, VDAT-2016 is a focused research event encompassing themes related to various disciplines of VLSI. The objective of the symposium is to bring professional engineers, academicians and research scholars of matching interests on a common platform to share new ideas, experiences, and knowledge in various fields of VLSI Design, Test and Technology. The scientific program will consist of peer-reveiwed paper presentations in parallel technical sessions. In addition, keynote lectures, presentation by industry professionals, panel discussions, tutorials and poster presentation will be conducted during the conference. Such interactions will faciliate better understanding about technological developments all across the globe amongst the peers. This conference will certainly ignite the minds of the researchers for undertaking more interdisciplinary collaborative research for up gradation of technology.
