The aim of the Workshop on Advances in Analog Circuit Design (AACD) is to bring together a large group of people working at the frontiers of analog circuit design, to study and discuss possibilities and future developments.

The workshop lasts three days and runs yearly since 1992, covering every year three specific topics in the field on analog design (one topic per day).

This year the 31st edition of the AACD workshop will take place in Villach, Austria, from April 12th to April 14th, 2023 and will cover the following topics:

AACD is recognized as Ph. D. School. For Ph. D. Students that need a final exam for gaining ECTS, a test will be organized online a few weeks after the Workshop.

Villach is the 7th-largest city in Austria, the 2nd-largest in the federal state of Carinthia. It is an important traffic junction for southern Austria and the whole Alpe-Adria region.

According to recent economic research, Villach is one of the most dynamic growth areas within the entire EU. Villach has earned itself a high ranking in terms of both economic growth and population growth in both Austria and the EU as a whole thanks to an above-average productivity level, the quality of the available manpower, the high technological standard of the resident enterprises and an innovative economic structure.

Villach has been able to establish itself as a center for microelectronics and electronics and as a high-tech hub in the Alpe-Adria region thanks, among other things, to its [micro]electonic cluster. Attracting companies and research centers active in the areas of microelectronics and microsystems, geomatics, telecommunications and information technology is a prime goal.

Therefore, Villach represents the perfect framework for a cutting-edge workshop, such as AACD.
