Publication: Accepted posters will be given two pages in the soft proceedings.

Best PhD forum Poster Award: The PhD forum selection committee will review all presented posters and recommend one poster for the Best PhD Forum Poster Award. We will have awards for second and third places as well.

How to Apply: Submit a two-page extended abstract of your research work in PDF format. Paper format should be compliant with the guidelines for regular papers.

Travel Grants for PhD Students: VLSI-SoC 2016 finances a limited number of travel grants for PhD students, through the Technical Committee TC-10 (Computer Systems Technology) and WG 10.5 of the International Federation for Information Processing - IFIP. In principle, grants are restricted to support students who cannot be fully supported by their institutions. This rule gives preference to students being enrolled in Africa, Latin America, Eastern Europe and Asia (except Israel, Japan, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan and China). Please indicate in your paper submission e-mail whether or not you will apply for travel grants and for which amount of money you will apply. If possible, we try to cover airfare and hotel costs. If the grant can be approved, we will send detailed instructions directly to the applicant. Costs will be reimbursed after the conference.
