SSCS Predoctoral Achievement Awards 2021-2022
Attention SSCS Graduate Students!
Applications are open for the 2021-2022 Predoctoral Achievement Award. For a small number of promising graduate students, the IEEE SSCS Predoctoral Achievement Award provides a $1,000 honorarium as well as other expenses incurred by the awardee.
Applicants must be members of the IEEE and the Solid-State Circuits Society and have completed at least one year of study in a PhD program in the area of solid-state circuits. Awards are made on the basis of academic record and promise, quality of publications, and a graduate study program well matched to the charter of SSCS. Prior winners of the Predoctoral Achievement Award will not be eligible. No more than two awards will be granted in a given year to students of one Principal Advisor.
Deadline: November 1st, 2021.

Upcoming SSCS Webinar
Event-driven low-compute bio-inspired processing for edge audio devices - Presented by Shih-Chii Liu
The next SSCS monthly webinar will be held on Monday, September 27th at 11:00 AM ET.
This talk presents the development of event-driven spiking cochleas and deep neural network algorithms used for early edge audio tasks including voice activity detection and keyword spotting. The presenter will show examples of audio devices that combine this event-driven audio front-end with low-compute neural networks to implement continuous small vocabulary speech recognition and keyword spotting for low-power (nW-uW) ASICs.

Solid-State Circuits Directions Workshop - Active Antennas Towards THz
The goal of this workshop is to give a vision on potential emerging applications towards THz and present the latest developments on integrated antennas co-design with active circuits at high mm-wave frequencies.
The workshop comprises two days, each rounded up by a panel discussion. The first day will be rounded up by a panel discussion, to discuss the following points: does it make sense to go to frequencies above 100 GHz? Which applications might profit by this? Which frequency bands become available? Does it make sense from the commercial point of view? The second day will be rounded up by a discussion on where and how shall we realize antennas.
