8th Annual International Microelectronics Olympiad
The 8th Annual International Microelectronics Olympiad of Armenia is an educational contest intended to spotlight the worlds brightest and most talented young engineers under the age of 30 active in the field of microelectronics. The Olympiad is a knowledge-based, written test conducted in two stages. The first stage is held locally in each participating country, the second stage is held in Armenia. One winner from the first stage in each country is sponsored to fly out and participate in the final stage held in Armenia.

DATE 2013 Special Session Featuring Dr. Antun Domic, Synopsys Senior VP & GM"The Heritage of Mead & Conway: What Has Remained the Same, What Was Missed, What Has Changed, What Lies Ahead"
"About 30 years ago, Electronics Magazine awarded two electrical engineers and computer scientists, Carver Mead and Lynn Conway for their contribution to VLSI chips design; in 1982, the so called Mead & Conway methods, taught at 100+ universities all over the world, "not only have helped spawn a common design culture so necessary in the VLSI era, but have greatly increased interaction between university and industry so as to stimulate research by both"; concepts such as separation of design from manufacturing, design rules, silicon foundries, addressing complexity through design methodology, new, electronic representations of design data, have enabled tens of thousands of chip designers, and tens of thousands of chip designs. Today, as Moore's Law – a term coined by Carver Mead – has brought as from 10 microns to 10 nanometers, what is the heritage of Mead & Conway? UCB Professor Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli will moderate an industry and research panel, to discuss what has remained the same, what was missed, what has changed, and what lies ahead."
