Call for Papers

The IX Microelectronics Students Forum (SForum 2009) is an event promoted by the Brazilian Microelectronics Society (SBMicro) and the Brazilian Computer Society (SBC). The Microelectronics Students Forum has as goals:

  • Promote the participation of undergraduate and graduate students (master and PhD students) in the two most important Brazilian events in the area: "SBMicro 2009: Symposium on Microelectronics Technology and Devices" and "SBCCI 2009: Symposium on Integrated Circuits and Systems Design";
  • Promote the realization of students' projects in a
    variety of topics within the field of microelectronics;
  • Provide an opportunity for the presentation and discussion of research projects developed by undergraduate students and beginner graduate students (master and PhD students) in microelectronics;
  • Promote advanced tutorial presentations on microelectronics understandable for undergraduate and graduate students starting or willing to start in this promissing field.

So, we encourage you to submit an article on your research project, including technical and/or scientific results achieved on simulation, prototypying, system development, layout features and related issues. The authors are invited to submit papers having from 2 to 4 pages, in English, in double-column format as in the template SForum_template.doc

NOTE: _Please, indentify in your submission, if you are undergraduate or graduate __(master ou PhD)__ student._
