About the Ethernet Technology Summit
Ethernet Technology Summit focuses on the latest advances in Ethernet technology, particularly the new specifications for 40/100 GbE, Fibre Channel over Ethernet (FCoE), and Energy-Efficient Ethernet. It features the latest information on these advances from the experts who are developing the specifications and designing the initial products for them.

About the IEEE International Solid-State Circuits Conference (ISSCC)
ISSCC is the flagship conference of the Solid-State Circuits Society and is the premier forum for presenting advances in solid-state circuits and systems-on-a-chip. The Conference will feature more than 200 technical presentations representing benchmark results, design in state-of-the-art process technologies, and circuits in emerging device technologies. ISSCC 2011 will also feature a variety of educational events (tutorials, short course), advanced-circuit forums and evening sessions.
