ENGINEERING STUDENTS. . .

 

Lattice Semiconductor and IEEE OC Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) cordially invites you to participate in the 2018 SoC Student Design Contest (SoC-SDC) that will be held as part of the 16th International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference on Wednesday, October 17, at UCI Calit2. 

 

The SoC-SDC provides an outstanding forum in which graduate and undergraduate students’ efforts can be shared with an audience of academic and industrial technical experts. The contest promotes excellence in the engineering- and computer science-related designs within an academic environment and provides a forum in which undergraduate/graduate engineering and computer science students’ ingenuity can be shared with an audience of academic/industrial technical experts.

 

The participating students will present their designs through posters at the 16th International SoC Conference.  Individuals or small teams with accepted abstracts will be offered the chance to participate.  Accepted abstracts will be published in the conference proceedings and students will get the opportunity to present a peer-proffered poster (and demo if available) as part of the presentation submission.

 

SoC-SDC PROJECT PROPOSAL*

 

The SoC Student Design Contest is designed to encourage engineering and computer science undergraduates and graduate students to work on an original project based on Lattice Semiconductor FPGA solutions and present their work  at the 16th International System-on-Chip (SoC) Conference Exhibit to a group of judges from industry and academia. Interested students could complete their FPGA design work either on a Lattice FPGA board or simply present a paper design that list their design-related code.

 

Each project will be judged based on its overall complexity, originality, and completion of the work.  Substantially extending sample projects with an extra spark of creativity would be considered as an original design.

 

Neural network, sensor/signal processing, machine vision, RISC-V (or other processors), sound processing, real time DSP, audio processing / voice recognition,  security applications, software defined radio, bit-stream encode/decode, precise timing control, autonomous (model) vehicles, programmable logic control, automation, robotic control, Internet of Things (IoT), are just some of the exciting topics that students can explore with their project designs.

 

“WILD & CRAZY” DESIGN PROJECTS ARE WELCOMED!

WE LOOK FORWARD TO HEARING FROM YOU.

Don’t Miss Out!

 

THIS IS AN EXCELLENT OPPORTUNITY TO GET PUBLISHED AND PRESENT AT AN INTERNATIONAL CONFERENCE IN YOUR OWN BACK YARD!

 

Important Deadlines*:

 

(1) Abstract Submission: October 5, 2018 (Extended to Friday, Oct 12, 2018)

 

To participate in this contest, please submit your proposed project abstract in MS Word (maximum 500 words) by providing a high-level overview of the project. Abstract must include full name and email addresses of all the participating students for each project (group projects are encouraged). All abstracts must be submitted to: MySoCconference@gmail.com     

 

(2) Final Project Demonstration and Poster Presentation: Wednesday, October 17, 2018
