Call for Tutorials

Chair:  Jenq-Neng Hwang, University of Washington  <hwang at>

The MWSCAS 2010 technical program will include tutorials to be held on the first day of the symposium. Organizing Committee seeks proposals for half-day and full-day tutorials that present current topics in circuits and systems related research and development. We are interested in tutorials on established or emerging research topics within the field itself, but we also welcome tutorials from related research fields or application areas. The ideal tutorial should attract a wide audience, be broad enough to provide a gentle introduction to the chosen research area, and should also cover the most important contributions in depth. Proposals that exclusively focus on the presenterís own work or commercial presentations are not eligible.

We encourage submissions of tutorial proposals on the MWSCAS topics including but not limited to:

Analog Circuits and Signal Processing

Digital Circuits and Computer Arithmetic

Programmable logic, VLSI, CAD and Layout

Linear and Non-linear Circuits and Systems

Nanoelectronics and Nanotechnology

Communication and Wireless Systems

Embedded Electronics

Image Processing and Multimedia Systems

RF, Microwave, and Optical Systems

Neural Networks and Fuzzy Systems

Control Systems, Mechatronics, and Robotics

Optics and Photonics

Power Electronics

Bioengineering Circuits and Systems

System Architectures

Innovative Technologies



Proposals, prepared in a one column PDF file, should include the following information:

Title of the tutorial

Area of the tutorial (refer to the above list of topics)

300 Word Abstract (for inclusion in registration materials)


Format of tutorial (1/2 day or 1 day)

Instructor(s) and their credentials (2-page CV for each instructor)

Previous offerings of tutorials, if any

Learning objectives

Target audience and prerequisite knowledge of audience

Full description (1-2 pages to be used for evaluation)
