7 outstanding chip designs reflecting the high research standards of Asian academies are selected among the accepted student papers and honorably invited to demonstrate their design results on the conference site with poster paper. Based on the on-site demonstration results, the 3 best student design will be selected and awarded among the 7 SDC participants and the others will be honored by a A-SSCC SDC certificate.
In addition, the authors of the 3 awarded designs will receive special scholarship at the 2008 ISSCC in San Francisco and the designs will be demonstrated on-site at the 2008 ISSCC.
The SDC session is intended to provide an interactive demonstration of excellent student designs. Authors can demonstrate their design results, operations and detail concepts vividly to the conference participants.
Authors should bring their chip and test/demonstration equipment to the conference site to demonstrate their design results during the conference period, from the first day till the final day of the conference (the first day demonstration is very important because the award winners are determined on the first day).
The operation of the chip will be demonstrated by showing the important waveforms verifying the design concepts or by showing visual criterions for the performance of the designed chip.
Although it is not recommended, the author may bring the test result data stored in the notebook and replay them at the conference site instead of the real demonstration.
If you need any special equipment on-site for the demonstration, please contact the SDC chair, Prof. Hoi-Jun Yoo, as soon as possible.
The poster boards are prepared to attach the posters in portrait format with a maximum size of 70 inches (height) by 36 inches (width) (1 inch=2.54 cm). Posters have to be attached to the boards using adhesive tape (available on site). The poster should allow the attendees to recognize the key points of the work easily from a distance of at least 10 feet (3 meters) and to facilitate more detailed discussions with the authors. Often the best poster comprises a few large significant graphs/illustrations annotated clearly with only enough text to headline key points like purpose, conclusions, and impact. Note that the poster should not consist of a copy of the manuscript.
