  • Co-sponsored Publications: SSCS Representatives – An Appeal

  • Design and Test Update

  • RFIC Compendium Update

Co sponsored sscs publications
Co-sponsored SSCS Publications

For the past several years:

  • Trans. on VLSI Systems (w. CASS, CS)

  • Trans. on Display Technology (w. Photonics)

  • Trans. on Semiconductor Manufacturing (w. CPMT )

    Beginning early 2012:

    4. D&T Magazine (w. CASS, CEDA)

    5. RFIC-VJ (w. MTTS, CASS, EDS, APS)

  • Want to begin (in February) an explicit semi-annual reporting protocol to this committee via SSCS representatives, particularly journals 1, 2, 3 above.

  • Need your help in identifying the best technical SSCS representation for 1, 2, and 3.

    • Opportunity – SSCS has been asked if it would like to be an equal financial+technical sponsor (w/ CASS + CEDA) of the IEEE Design and Test of Computers Magazine.

    • IEEE Computer Society wants to drop its sponsorship of the Magazine due to budget constraints;

    • Past annual operating budget = $63K/yrloss total

      • $21K annual loss for each of 3 sponsor societies

      • Gross Annual Income = 140K

      • Expenses can be reduced: CS Press infrastructure charge, + others …

    • 85 papers/year; 6 issues/year

    • 80K Xplore downloads/yr

    • Subscriptions: 755 (2009/2010)

    Design and test magazine1

    • SSCS Vision: Expand Scope to include RF, mixed signal, analog test through special issue mechanism.

    • SSCS Vision: Title change: “Design and Test of Computers” to “Design and Test _____”.

    • Jan. 2012 handoff from Computer Society.

    • Feb. Motion: To proceed via Task Force participation in creation of an MOU, Scope, Editorial Board and Budget of the newly defined “Design and Test Magazine”.

    • Update: Task Force has been created:

      • Irith Pomeranz (CASS)

      • Rajesh Gupta (CEDA)

      • Glenn Gulak (SSCS)

      • Yervant Zorian (TTTC)

    • First teleconference was July 29th and will occur monthly thereafter until January CS handover.

    • Feb. Motion: To conditionally approve a budget of up to $30K / year for the “Design and Test Magazine”, conditioned on the equal participation of CASS and CEDA, and on a jointly signed MOU.

    • Update: MOU was signed June 25 at IEEE TAB meeting in Bellevue, WA.

    • Projected 3yr budget (2012-2014) shows:

      Yr1=$4K / Yr2=$8K / Yr3=$14K surplus.

    • The six issues for 2012 are defined and in-flight.

    • Current EIC (K. Chakrabarty) has agreed to stay on for 2012 term, while a search for a new EIC starts soon.
