Welcome Message from General Chair

On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the IEEE Asian Solid-State Circuits Conference (A-SSCC) 2008, it is a great honor for me to welcome you to the conference, which will be held at JAL Resort Sea Hawk Hotel Fukuoka, Japan from November 3~5th, 2008.


A-SSCC 2008 is an international conference aimed at fostering and strengthening Research and Development in Solid-State Circuits and related fields especially in the Asia-Pacific region. Three conferences were already held in different and famous cities of Asia-Pacific region with a lot of attendees from all over the world. This year, over three hundred papers were submitted and more than one hundred papers await your discussion in Fukuoka, Japan.


We, the members of the Organizing Committee, are truly honored to host this memorable event and are making all out efforts to ensure that the quality of the conference meets your expectations. We hope to create an opportunity for friends and colleagues, new and old, in this field to get together, share their experiences and expand their horizons. We also hope that this year you can enjoy a taste of Japanese culture, as Fukuoka, the city of Japan’s southern island Kyushu and the closest big Japanese city to Asia mixes together a splendid traditional culture with urban excitement. Kyushu has often been called Silicon Island and is a fitting location for this ever growing event.


I cordially invite you to join us to share friendship at A-SSCC 2008 and hope that you will take this opportunity to visit one of the most exciting and beautiful countries in the world. I look forward to seeing you in Fukuoka.
