The Gigascale Silicon Research Center (GSRC) was established in December, 1998 to perform long-range, collaborative research that address the challenges of chip design and test that we expect to be facing in the 8-12 year timeframe. At present, the GSRC involves twenty five faculty and nine US universities, along with more than 50 post-doctoral researchers and graduate students. In this paper we present the overall goals and organization of the GSRC, along with the research thrusts and themes

While it is still a very young research effort, we have already changed our overall emphasis in a number of ways, based on our early results and analysis. A number of these interim conclusions are presented, along with the approaches we are taking to address these long-range research challenges.
