There is a compelling need to search for new inter-disciplinary growth areas for the integrated circuits and systems industry. TexasWISE aims to fulfill this requirement by providing a common forum for academic and industry researchers to meet and explore avenues of research beyond IC design. The workshop will not only provide a chance for face-to-face interaction among Texas IC research and development professionals, but also attract outstanding speakers from outside of Texas. The goal is to maximize the impact of exploratory research beyond IC design and establish Texas in a leading role in this activity.
