The 1st Analog VLSI Workshop
sponsored by the IEE of Japan

May 6,7,8, 1997
Dreese Laboratory, The Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA

The Research Committee on Electronic Circuits of the IEEJ (The Institute of Electrical Engineers of Japan) is sponsoring the 1st Analog VLSI Workshop to be held at the Ohio State University, Columbus, OH, USA, May 6-8, 1997. The purpose of the workshop is the exchange of information, ideas and recent research results on analog VLSI circuits and their applications. The main objective is to provide an informal setting for a group (about 100) of analog VLSI specialists from both industry and academia worldwide, to meet and brainstorm. The work does not have to be complete, e.g. results from a test chip are not mandatory.

The topics for the Workshop include but are not limited to:
Amplifiers, Filters, Comparators, Multipliers, Voltage References, Sample-And- Hold Circuits, A/D and D/A Converters, Mixed Analog/Digital Circuits, Low Voltage/Low Power, Analog Circuit Simulators, Layout techniques, Analog Signal and Information Processing Applications (Telecommunication, Multimedia, Consumer, Medical, Automotive, Space, Military, etc)

Authors are requested to send information including the complete title, author name(s), affiliation(s) of author(s), and corresponding author (name, postal and e-mail addresses, telephone/fax numbers) to one of the following Secretariats by February 21, 1997.

Author's Kit will be sent after the Secretariats receive the above information. The official language of the workshop is English. The deadline for camera-ready manuscript is March 31, 1997.

Registration fee, which covers banquet, is $100. Although no registration fee is required for full-time students, $50 must be paid when they attend the banquet. Only on-site registration is available.

Further information including technical program, hotel reservation, etc can be obtained from the Secretariats by e-mail or FAX.
