Dear Engineering & Computer Science Students:  


You are cordially invited to participate in the Student Design Contest to be held on November 5, 2008, at the 6th International SoC Conference at Radisson Hotel Newport Beach.


Project proposal: Student Design Contest is designed to encourage engineering and computer science students attending the Southern California Universities & Colleges (undergraduates & graduates) to work on a new design (paper design is also accepted) and present their work at the 6th International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference via a poster display (poster size: 24x36 or slightly larger).


The design projects could be a chip-level design, a board-level design (microprocessor or microcontroller based, etc.), a software project, or a detailed technology analysis/research.  Each project will be judged based on its overall complexity, originality, and completion of the work.
