JSSC 50th Anniversary
The IEEE Journal of Solid-State Circuits, the flagship journal of the solid-state circuits community, also known as the "red rag" by many, has reached half a century of age. The JSSC was initially established to complement the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference to publish complete texts of papers from the conference. The first issue was published in Spetember of 1966. Since them, the journal has grown to be one of the most celebrated journals of the IEEE community. To celebrate this momentous occasion, visit the special 50th anniversary issue page of the journal, read the special 50th anniversary issue of the journal and the very first issue of the journal, and read the special Solid-State Circuits Magazine issue on the 50th anniversary.
ISSCC 2017 Student Travel Grant Award (STGA)
The SSCS Student Travel Grant Award (STGA) program recognizes and promotes early career accomplishments in all solid-state circuits fields by supporting graduate student travel to SSCS sponsored conferences (ISSCC, A-SSCC, VLSI, and CICC). Applications for the ISSCC 2017 Student Travel Grant Award (STGA) are now being accepted. If you would like to apply, please click here for the application and submission details. STGA applicants must be SSCS members, enrolled for at least a year in a PhD program and be recommended by one professor. Please note that a dissertation topic does not yet need to have been selected. The deadline for submission is December 5, 2016. Please email Lauren Caruso, SSCS Administrator (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you have any questions.
