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.
