In addition, ISQED’09 features seven keynote speeches by industry leaders, 23 technical sessions with nearly 150 papers in three parallel tracks, panel discussions, and vendor exhibits. The conference will be held on March 16-18, at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, Calif.

ISQED’09 recipients of the prestigious IQ-Award, and best paper awards will be announced during a luncheon ceremony, sponsored by Synopsys, on Tuesday March 17th. ISQED’09 Quality Award is sponsored by Mentor Graphics. ISQED best paper awards are sponsored by Magma Design Automation and Synopsys.

ISQED’09 corporate sponsors include Synopsys, Mentor Graphics, Magma Design Automation, Cadence Design Systems, and the Silicon Valley Technical Institute. Media sponsors include EDACafe Chip Design and System-Level Design (SLD) publications. ISQED’09 is held with technical sponsorship of the IEEE Electron Devices Society, and IEEE CASS, and in cooperation with IEEE Reliability Society, and ACM/SigDA. The conference is produced and sponsored by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design.

The International Society for Quality Electronic Design (ISQED), established in 1999, is a professional organization devoted to highlight, promote, and accelerate establishment of industry-wide targets for the “Quality” of the integrated circuit and system designs, and helping to develop metrics and standards for quality electronic design from front-to-back end. The mission of ISQED is to provide forums to present and exchange ideas and to promote research, development, and application of design methods, design processes, semiconductor technologies, IC packaging, test, EDA design tools and methodologies, employed for the design of Integrated Circuits, with a focus on design for quality, manufacturing, yield, and reliability. ISQED emphasizes a holistic approach toward electronic design accelerates the cooperation among the IC design, EDA, semiconductor process technology, IC packaging, test, and manufacturing communities. The International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design is the flagship conference of the organization and has been held successfully for 10 years in California.
