PhD Forum

VLSI-SoC 2016’s PhD Forum is a poster session aimed at the exchange of ideas and experiences of PhD students from different parts of the world. Selected PhD students have an opportunity to discuss their thesis and research work with specialists within the system and design automation communities. Thus, PhD students receive valuable feedback and gain exposure in the job market. On the othe rhand, this forum provides a great chance for industry officials to meet junior researchers, giving an avenue for incorporating the latest research developments in their companies.
