Chip in the Fields
The conferences SBCCI and SBMicro started in the early 80’s and since the year 2000 they jointed forces, organizing them at the same venue and under and umbrella name “Chip in Somewhere”. The somewhere could be the name of the city or a fantasy name related to the region. It started with the name of “Chip in the Jungle”, because it was held in Manaus, the heart of the Amazon forest. This year it will be hosted in Campinas, a name originated from the word Field, leading to the name Chip in the Fields.
Along these 22 years of Chip in, gradually other conferences jointed the common venue and organization. Now we are composed of five sister conferences: SBCCI, SBMicro, WCAS, INSCIT and Sforum, as described in the respective call for papers. A microelectronic business forum is also held in parallel in one day and expo booths are offered for commercial suppliers. This all, makes the Chip in a very reach environment for scientific and technology discussions and for opportunities in Microelectronics in the region.
Beside the scientific, technology and business insights of the event, Campinas has also touristic and historical attractions. Campinas was home of great inventors such as Hercule Florence (photography), Roberto Landell de Moura (radio), Santos-Dumont (airplane) and also of the great composer Carlos Gomes. It hosts important academic and R&D centers, as examples for microelectronics we mention UNICAMP, CTI, CPqD, CNPEM (LNNano, LNLS, Sirius), Eldorado, Idea! and many others. There are also many tourist attractions such as Portugal Park, Municipal Market, Old Train Station, the Cathedral, the touristic old train trip Maria Fumaça and a nearby flower expo in Holambra, called Expoflora, that would starts at the last day of Chip in the Fields, but is now postponed to 2022.
Chip in the Fields 2020 was held in Virtual mode last year. With the hope that the pandemic would be over in 2021, the plan was to held it on site at the original venue this year. However, the Covid-19 did not reduce and so it was decided to go virtual again. That brought us to the Virtual Chip in the Fields 2021.
