The MIXDES Conference
The MIXDES conference series started in Debe near Warsaw in 1994 and continued in Krakow (1995 and 1999), Lodz (1996, 1998), Poznan (1997) and Gdynia (2000). Next year we would like to continue the tradition of inviting delegates to the most attractive places in Poland by organizing MIXDES 2001 in Zakopane.
The 8th International Conference MIXDES 2001 will provide a well-established forum for the exchange of ideas in practical and theoretical issues related to system design as well as high-level education of microelectronics and power electronics.
The conference originated from the workshops organised by the TEMPUS programmes. Over the years MIXDES has evolved into a well established international conference giving the opportunity for meeting scientists and lecturers from all over the world to share the experience and exchange ideas about microelectronics and its education.
Areas of interest
The topics of the Conference include:
Design of integrated circuits and microsystems Design methodologies. Digital and analogue synthesis. Hardware-software codesign. Hardware description languages. Intellectual property-based design. Design reuse.
Thermal issues in microelectronics. Thermal and electro-thermal modelling, simulation methods and tools. Thermal mapping. Thermal protection circuits.
Analysis and modelling of IC and microsystems. Simulation methods and algorithms. Behavioural modelling with VHDL-AMS and other advanced modelling languages. Microsystems modelling. Models reduction. Parameters identification.
Microelectronics technology and packaging. New microelectronic technologies. Packaging. Sensors and actuators.
Testing and reliability. Design for testability and manufacturability. Measurement instruments and techniques.
Power electronics. Design, manufacturing and simulation of power semiconductor devices. Hybrid and monolithic Smart Power circuits.
Signal processing. Digital and analogue filters, telecommunication circuits. Neural networks. Artificial intelligence. Fuzzy logic. Low voltage and low power solutions.
Interdisciplinary applications. Medicine. Space technology. Biotechnology and others. Reconfigurable hardware.
Education. Education methodology, software and tools. Web-based teaching.
Official language of the Conference is English, neither translation nor interpretation will be provided.
Call for papers and contributions
A call is made for papers, contributions and other conference activities on the topics mentioned above. Full papers should be submitted to the Organizing Committee before 30 January 2001 only in electronic form (MS Word document, PostScript or pdf). The required format is available on our Web page. Authors are asked to indicate the topic into which their papers fall. Papers will be reviewed by at least two referees from the International Programme Committee and the accepted papers will be printed in the Proceedings from the authors' electronic submission.
Tutorials – call for proposals
Several tutorials will be held prior to the Conference. Authors willing to propose a tutorial at MIXDES 2001 are invited to send a proposal to the Organizing Committee. The proposal should consist of a three-page summary including tutorial title, name and affiliation of the lecturer(s), tutorial objectives and audience, topical outline and provisional schedule of the tutorial.
Exhibition and presentation
It is anticipated that an exhibition of teaching equipment, computer software, relevant teaching materials and books, which facilitate effective training in engineering education, will coincide with the Conference. Any institution or individual interested in taking part in the exhibition should contact the Conference secretary. Proposals for arrangement of invited sessions are welcome. These sessions are expected to present recent advances in the fields related to the main topics of the Conference. Each proposal should include the names and affiliations of authors and abstracts of their papers.
Intended authors should note the following deadlines:
Receipt of papers 31 January 2001.
Notification of acceptance 31 March 2001.
