    Back in 1954, the organizers of what would become the International Solid-State Circuits Conference did not know they were founding an international conference, or even an annual event. The only international presence at the first conference consisted of one attendee each from Canada and Japan. That perspective changed rapidly over the first few years. The first overseas papers appeared in 1958. In I960, after experimenting with almost-yearly title changes, the organizers settled on the present “International” title of the conference.

  • SSCS thanks Schuster and Garverick

    Stan Schuster and Steven Garverick were honored at the SSCS Administrative Committee meeting last February for serving as co-chairs of the Solid-State Circuits Technology Workshop program for close to a decade, going back to the days when the Society existed as a Council. The workshops, scheduled twice a year, were designed as small gatherings on a specific technical area, often an emerging technology, to ensure that dialog among participants was a primary feature. Workshops left the spark of ideas in participants' minds and sometimes the vision of the depth of challenges before them, but never in a published proceedings — you had to be there. Programs of some past workshops are still listed in the history section on the Society's Web pages. View full abstract»

    Shanghai Chapter — The Shanghai Chapter held an inaugural meeting on 22 March 2003 at the Hotel Equatorial in Shanghai. Seventy-eight people, including members, attended the meeting. The representative of the IEEE Beijing Section and CIE, Mingui Zhou, introduced the IEEE and SSCS activities. The Dean of the Information Science and Engineering School of Fudan University, Professor Liangyao Chen, congratulated the members on the foundation of the Shanghai Chapter. Shanghai Chapter Chair, Professor Ting-Ao Tang, reported the activity plan of the chapter: to recruit new members, to organize seminars, to hold the 5th International Conference on ASIC, and to cosponsor ASP-DAC 2005. Two seminars comprised the remainder of the agenda: Professors Sichang Zou spoke on the “Establishment of the Shanghai semiconductor industrial base” and Shoujue Wang spoke on “An analysis method of high-dimension space geometry and its application in the future digital world.” Both speakers are Academicians of the Chinese Academy of Sciences.
