IEEE EDS Mini-colloquium: tutorials
South Brazil IEEE/EDS Chapter Mini-Colloquium

This mini-colloquium is scheduled on the day prior to the beginning of the "Chip in the Pampa" events, namely the SBMicro conferences "23rd Symposium on Microelectronics Technology and Devices and "21st Symposium on Integrated Circuits and Systems Design" to be held on the same venue.

These events have the co-sponsorship of the IEEE Electron Devices Society and the IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, respectively. This mini-colloquium will serve as a tutorial session and will appeal to all attendees of these conferences, attracting more attention to the technology and devices issues as they relate to the advances for systems and circuits integration in the near term roadmap and also beyond.
