HEC Awards Travel Grant to LUMS Lecturer Khawar Sarfraz
Khawar Sarfraz, Lecturer at School of Science and Engineering (SSE) LUMS, was awarded Higher Education Commission (HEC) travel grant for the presentation of his research, titled "A Novel Low-leakage 8T Differential SRAM Cell", at the 2011 IEEE/IFIP 19th International Conference on Very Large Scale Integration and System-on-Chip (VLSI-SoC). The convention was held in Royal Plaza Hotel Kowloon, Hong Kong, China from October 3-5, 2011.
VLSI-SoC 2011 was the 19th in a series of international conferences sponsored by IFIP TC 10 Working Group 10.5, IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) and Circuits and Systems Society (CASS) that explores the state-of-the-art and the new developments in the field of VLSI, SoC and their designs.
Previous conferences took place in Edinburgh, Trondheim, Tokyo, Vancouver, Munich, Grenoble, Gramado, Lisbon, Montpellier, Darmstadt, Perth, Nice, Atlanta, Rhodes, Florianópolis and Madrid.
The purpose of VLSI-SoC is to provide a forum where exchange of ideas can take place through the exhibition of the industrial and research results in the fields of VLSI and ultra-large-scale integration (ULSI) Systems, SoC design, VLSI CAD and Microelectronic Design and Test (MDT).
The focus of the conference was on the research area of "SoC design for ubiquitous sensing and computing".
LUMS take great pride in the works of their SSE faculty and hope that similar endeavours continue to surface from LUMS platform in future too.
