VLSI Design & Test Symposium (VDAT) promotes research and development in various fields of VLSI Design. VDAT began as a small workshop in the year 1998, and in 2005 it acquired the status of an international symposium. The 27th International Symposium on VLSI Design and Test (VDAT-2023) will be jointly hosted by Birla Institute of Technology & Science (BITS), Pilani, and CSIR - Central Electronics Engineering Research Institute (CSIR-CEERI), Pilani in the month of September at Pilani, Rajasthan, India. This symposium aims to bring Industries, Academics, Researchers, Startups, MSMEs, and related practitioners together to exchange their ideas for leveraging in their respective fields. The VLSI Society of India, leading institutes and industries actively support the symposium.
