    The collection of papers by leading world experts to be presented at the International Solid-State Circuits Conference 2001 (ISSCC) 5–7 February 2001 at the San Francisco Marriott provides an extensive overview of achievements in the Internet Age (see Table 1). The Internet Age is a direct result of the tremendous advances in solid-state circuits enjoyed over the last three decades. Its impact is revolutionary in terms of cost-effective delivery of new roducts and services. The convergence of wireless and wireline digital communications with advanced computing technologies enables new System On A Chip concepts, apparently limited only by the imagination of the designers. The three plenary speakers support this theme: View full abstract»

    The 2000 VLSI Circuits Symposium was held 15–17 June 2000 in Honolulu, Hawaii, in concert with the VLSI Technology Symposium. This close association provided an international forum for those in technology and circuit/system design to interact. A highlight of both symposia was the Joint Rump Session. On the threshold of the twenty-first century, this year the session took a look into the future in a panel discussion, Circuit and System Technology in the Year 2010. Always heavily attended, this session saw noted panelists from a number of disciplines, including design, process, and wafer production, discussing their vision of the systems that would be built in the coming decade and the processes and advances necessary to realize them.

    For the first time, the SSCS has awarded two Predoctoral Fellowships in a given year. Liang Dai, a doctoral candidate at University of Minnesota, has been selected to receive the second IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society Predoctoral Fellowship for 2000–2001. The SSCS AdCom is pleased to be able to award two Predoctoral Fellowships annually beginning this year. “With a field of so many exceptional candidates, being able to award two makes the choice slightly easier,” reports the Awards Chair, Richard Jaeger, “and so we commend Mr. Dai for being selected for this prestigious award.” View full abstract»

    With this note, I report to you the results of the fifth annual election for membership on the Administrative Committee (AdCom) of the IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society. For some reason, this election has not achieved the same degree of notoriety and publicity as the recent national elections in the United States. Perhaps it was because none of our candidates requested a recount! As has been the case in all recent SSCS elections, the vote totals were very close, and every candidate on the slate received a significant number of votes from our membership. View full abstract»
