    IP/SOC 2006 Best Design Paper Awards

    CEA/LETI Each year IP/SoC Conference proud to recognize the excellent, novel, innovative and highly practical design ideas that authors contribute. Excellence in design – whether it be within an IP block or a complete system continue to be the future of the IP/SoC industry. This year, in conjunction with sponsors CEA/LETI and the LSI IP Design Award Committee in Japan, it will offer two prizes to the most interesting and innovative design papers.

    Papers will be judged on both the originality and practicality of the design, and the quality and presentation of the paper. Finalists will be able to take part in a poster session in the main exhibition area during the lunch and afternoon coffee break of the first day so that conference delegates can mingle and discuss the designs with the authors. Voting by delegates and judges shall take place during the first day and the two winners shall be given their awards during the prestigious conference banquet on the evening of the first day.
