The major problem in VLSI is really the control of complexity. The hardest part is the control of autonomous yet interacting processes. We do not yet have satisfactory techniques for handling that sort of thing, but I think the techniques we need to develop are independent of whether you are programming or designing the chip. Sidney Michaelson, Initiator of the IFIP Working Group on VLSI. This proceedings, dedicated to the late Prof. Sidney Michaelson, who ten years ago established this IFIP Working Group, reflects the continuing interest in improving design tools and the wide range of engineering concerns surrounding the effective exploitation of VLSI.
