About the International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design

The International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED) is a premier Design & Design Automation conference, aimed at bridging the gap between and integration of, electronic design tools and processes, integrated circuit technologies, processes and manufacturing, to achieve design quality. ISQED is the pioneer and leading conference dealing with design for manufacturability and quality issues, front to back. The conference provides a forum to present and exchange ideas and to promote research, development, and application of design techniques and methods, design processes, and EDA design methodologies and tools that address issues which impact the quality of the realization of designs into physical integrated circuits. ISQED’s goal is to accelerate cooperation among the IC Design, EDA, and semiconductor process technology and manufacturing communities. Further information about ISQED can be found at

The conference is produced and sponsored by the International Society for Quality Electronic Design. For more information please visit:
