IEICE VLD Student Forum at ASP-DAC 2009
Call for Posters
The Student Forum at ASP-DAC 2009 is a poster session for graduate students to present their research work. This is a great opportunity for students to get feedback and have discussion with people from academia and industry. Travel grants will be provided for some of the students attending the forum and awards will be given to outstanding presentations. Please check the website for updates.
Download the Call for Posters in PDF format (232KB).
Graduate students are eligible for the Student Forum.
