1st IEEE International Workshop on Silicon Lifecycle Management 

(SLM 2021)

October 14-15, 2021, Virtual Conference



With increasing system complexity, security, stringent runtime requirements for functional safety, and cost constraints of a mass market, the reliable and secure operation of electronics in safety-critical, enterprise servers and cloud computing domains is still a major challenge. 

The inaugural edition of the SLM Workshop tries to build a community around this topic and offer a forum to present and discuss these challenges and emerging solutions among researchers and practitioners alike.

Highlights Include:

  • Thursday keynote by Rich Bonderson, Google
  • Friday keynote by Ravi Iyer, University of Illinois
  • 15 great presentations, including ones on:
