The aim of ESSDERC conferences is to provide an annual European forum for the presentation and discussion of recent advances in solid-state devices and circuits. ESSDERC and ESSCIRC (sister conference) are governed by a single Steering Committee. The increasing level of integration for system-on-chip design made available by advances in silicon technology is stimulating more than ever before the need for deeper interaction among technologists, device experts and circuits and system designers. While keeping separate Technical Program Committees, ESSDERC and ESSCIRC will share Plenary Keynote Presentations and Joint Sessions bridging both communities. Attendees registered for either conference are encouraged to attend any of the scheduled parallel sessions.
