Call for Papers

ISQED 2005
6th IEEE International Symposium on


March 28-30, 2005
San Jose, CA, USA


ISQED is the pioneer and leading international conference dealing with the
design for manufacturability and quality issues front-to-back.
ISQED spans three days, Monday through Wednesday, in three parallel tracks,
hosting near 100 technical
presentations, six keynote speakers, two-three panel discussions, workshops
/tutorials and other informal meetings.
Conference proceedings are published by IEEE Computer Society and hosted in
the digital library. Proceedings CD ROMs
are published by ACM. In addition, continuing the tradition of reaching a
wider readership in the IC design community,
ISQED will continue to publish special issues in leading journals. The
authors of high quality papers will be invited
to submit an extended version of their papers for the special journal


Paper Submission Deadline September 30, 2004
Acceptance Notification November 17-19, 2004
Final Camera-Ready Paper December 15, 2004

Papers are requested in the following areas:

o Design for Manufacturability & Quality

sorry but I dont know if there is even a Thomas Hutchins there at UMass
Amherst, is he a student? part time instructor?

you repeated the text there in the middle. Admit it, being a confused youth
exposed to the masses of information in a college/university setting with a
lack of sleep, lack of chores and a lack of having a maternal caretaker
seems to have caused you to drift towards being a slacker.

the slacker mindset is driven by these older, zany ultra liberal professor
types. I havent accepted the offers to be a professor, maybe some day when
I grow up, but the older, warped liberal wackos of our day like Noam Chomsky

feed like bloodsucking vampires off of younger college students. In order
to brain wash them? they need to paint a picture of the world that its
imaginary, it may not exist, the only good thing is sex and communism and

its spelled out by the quotes you posted there. you need a dose of normal
life, hard work and normal people. this isnt the matrix, life is real, God
created it
