In music, consecutive fifths (sometimes known as parallel fifths) are progressions in which a perfect fifth is followed by a different perfect fifth between the same two musical parts: for example, from C to D in one part along with G to A in a higher part. Intervening octaves are irrelevant to this aspect of musical grammar; for example, parallel twelfths (i.e. , as created by successive intervals of an octave plus a fifth) are equivalent to parallel fifths.
The International Conference on VLSI Design was started in 1985, as a small workshop at IIT Madras, under the visionary guidance of Dr. Vishwani Agrawal of Auburn University, and Prof. H.N. Mahabala of IIT Madras. From this modest beginning, it has grown into a leading international conference on VLSI design, which draws around 700 attendees from all over the world every year. The IEEE Computer Society Press, USA, prints the proceedings.
