VSI Objectives

The VLSI Society of India was formed in 1989 with the noble goal of making India a strong force in VLSI. Activities in the VLSI area in India were limited at that time, and the number of professionals working in the VLSI area were also fewer. Now, over a hundred companies are working in India in the areas of chip design, embedded system design, electronic design automation, and design services.
A number of workshops, symposia, seminars and conferences on VLSI-related topics are now being organized in India. The VLSI Design Conference, which has been sponsored by the VLSI Society of India, has grown significantly in the past 15 years, with the number of participants reaching 800. The VLSI Design and Test Workshops, another event sponsored by the VLSI Society of India, has also grown since its inception in 1998 and now attracts over 300 participants.
While acknowledging this momentum as a welcome change, we believe that there is a long way to go and much to be achieved.

VSI Sponsorship

   What support can VSI provide in organizing an event?
VSI can support technical events related to VLSI held in India by providing financial sponsorship/co-sponsorship, or technical co-sponsorship. Membership of VSI is mandatory for anyone who wishes to organize our events. The purpose of the society is to contribute and promote the advancement of all aspects of VLSI in India.

   How can I organize an event of the VSI?
First of all, you must be a member of VSI in order to send a proposal.
a) VSI can provide financial sponsorship for an event that you wish to organize. This means that VSI will provide seed funding for the event with the understanding that at the end of the event, this amount will be returned along with any excess your event might make. Alternately, if your event ends up making a deficit, VSI will pick up the deficit. You must send a copy of the budget at the time of making a proposal and audited report at the end of the event, within 3 months of conclusion of the event. You can submit the details on the online form for quick responses, but we will also need a hard copy to be mailed to us.

Your proposal must be sent at least three months in advance of the event.
