The International Conference on VLSI Design and International Conference on Embedded Systems begins with a two-day tutorial program that showcases the latest trends in technology. The three-day technical program begins after the tutorials, and includes about nine keynote addresses by industry and academia leaders who will provide perspectives on a broad range of areas, from those that are important today to trends that will emerge over the next several decades. The core of the technical program consists of a selected set of technical papers. The conference received 310 submissions in ten subject categories, and team of 83 technical experts, led by 18 track chairs, geographically distributed over the world, evaluated these papers. Two in-person program committee meetings were held in Princeton, NJ, USA and Noida, India. After an intensively deliberative process involving the evaluation of 1289 submitted reviews and detailed discussions on each submission, 66 high-quality papers were accepted to the program. These technical papers have been arranged into a set of technical sessions scheduled in 3-parallel sessions between January 7 and 9. The contributed papers are complemented by embedded tutorials on new and emerging trends, including advanced topics in low-power computing, embedded security, design under soft errors and electrostatic discharge (ESD) effects. In parallel with the technical tracks, the Student Conference tracks is intended to motivate students to pursue careers in this area by providing them with technical content at the appropriate level, paired with panel discussions that address some of their prime concerns. New to the program this year is the User/Designer Track This track aims to bring to the conference real world experience of designing complex chips and is specifically targeted to EDA tool users and designers in the industry, and to provide a platform for the design community to present and discuss practical aspects of all stages of design, u- ing actual chip implementations as examples. Even though this is a new effort, the response this year was very encouraging, with 64 submissions under evaluation. We expect this to be a successful and continuing component of the conference in future years.
