Dear Colleague,

We are pleased to announce the ” First ICTP Regional Microelectronics
Course on VHDL for Hardware Synthesis and FPGA Design in South and
Southeast Asia”,

The Abdus Salam International Centre for Theoretical Physics (ICTP,
Italy) along with the North South University (NSU, Bangladesh) will
organize the above mentioned activity, to be held at the North South
University, Dhaka, Bangladesh, from 31 January - 18 February 2011.
Experienced tutors will guide and assist participants during the
laboratory sessions. The Course will count on prestigious lecturers
from Universities, Industry and Research Institutions.

Scientists, technologists, teachers and students from South and
Southeast Asian countries that are members of the United Nations,
UNESCO or IAEA may attend the Course. Limited funds are available for
some participants, to be selected by the organizers.


This Course is intended as an advanced training activity in
Microelectronics, to introduce Physicists, Engineers and Computer
Scientists to state-of-the-art design methodologies for Programmable
Logic Devices (PLD). Emphasis will be placed on electronic system
development with Field Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA) using a
Hardware Description Language, VHDL, as cost effective solution for
research and training in microelectronics.

We would greatly appreciate it if you pass this information on to your
colleagues who may apply to this activity.
