DCIS started in 1981 as a Spanish national conference named “Jornadas de Diseño Lógico”, celebrated in Barcelona. It was a biannual event in which a small group of enthusiastic pioneers of the microelectronic field in Spain made great efforts to activate the scientific community willing to receive support from the public institutions. In those early days DCIS became an indispensable forum for the exchange of ideas and technological know-how; many of today’s Spanish scientific networks and consortia were forged under its umbrella.
In 1989, after five successful editions (1983, Barcelona; 1985, Madrid; 1987, Barcelona; 1989, Huelva), the name of the conference was changed to Conference on Design of Integrated Circuits (translated from the Spanish “Congreso de Diseño de Circuitos Integrados”, adopting the acronym DCIS), and the periodicity was changed to annual and has remained so to this day. For the subsequent years (1991, Santander; 1992, Toledo; 1993, Malaga; 1994, Gran Canaria; 1995, Zaragoza), the number of submitted papers increased significantly.
The next milestone occurred in 1996, when this national conference evolved into an international one, mainly because of the interest and participation of research groups located abroad, adopting its present name of Conference on Design of Circuits and Integrated Systems, DCIS. Since then, the international conference has been organized in different European cities. Since 2014 the conference proceedings have been published by IEEE through IEEE Xplore.
