Being held in the Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) Madras campus from 2nd to 7th January 2011, the theme of this year's conference is "Embedded products for the emerging markets—Infrastructure, Energy, and Automotive". There is a need to have discussions on the trends and the road ahead as VLSI Design and embedded systems are the core technologies behind all electronics used widely today in these and more domains. These three verticals are also the ones with the highest growth rates projected for India over the years ahead.

The exhibition which runs from 4th to 6th January will see over 30 companies and a few universities participating provides an opportunity for the industry to showcase new products and solutions. To encourage student and faculty participation from India, fellowships are offered by the conference to students and faculty, which covers free registration and accommodation at IIT Madras campus.

The conference would have two special tracks on industry and education. The Industry forum on 4th and 5th January would feature presentations from industry leaders on the theme of "Embedded products for the emerging market" and the Education forum on 6th January would feature a panel discussion on VLSI education and presentations from eminent academicians. A Design contest also is being conducted for students and industry professionals as a part of this conference.

Announcing the return of this event and its significance, Professor Kamakoti, General Co-chair of the conference, and Professor at Department of Computer Science and Engineering, IIT-M, said, "The Indian semiconductor market grew even while the global market shrunk thus pointing to the immense potential of this industry. For the industry to flourish and R&D to take-off one need close collaboration between industry and the academia besides a global perspective which is where this conference comes in providing a platform enabling the same. We expect over 600 professionals to participate in the tutorials and the conference in this edition."

In his comments, Professor Venketeswaran, General Co-chair of the conference, and director of Waran research Foundation, Chennai said, "The electronics industry has the potential to take India to the next level. Going forward, domestic electronics manufacturing companies have the capability to contribute significantly to our GDP. The VLSI conference as a forum would contribute in adding value to the market by bringing in experts across world to share knowledge and experience for future growth."
