LOUISVILLE, Colo. – January 11, 2011
-- The Design Automation Conference (DAC)
, the premier event on automation and design of electronic systems, features the User Track—an exciting forum for design professionals to share their work with other experts. DAC invites systems designers, application engineers, IC designers, design flow developers and vendor-customer teams to submit two-page abstracts for consideration. A typical User Track contribution describes solutions to practical issues related to EDA tools in a design flow. The User Track is part of the 48th DAC, which will be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, from June 5-10, 2011.
This year’s User Track includes a new Embedded Systems and Software category along with Front-end and Back-end Silicon Design. This reflects the growth in Embedded System design activity. User Track presentations may be problem-specific in scope (e.g., analyzing substrate coupling during floorplanning) or may address an application domain (e.g., designing wireless handsets). Initial submissions take the form of a two-page extended abstract—a quick and convenient format for busy professionals. Abstract submissions are open and run through January 18, 2011. Please visit www.dac.com/usertrack for detailed User Track information and submission guidelines.
“The DAC User Track provides practical, real-life information on tool use and best design practices. It is an excellent supplement for the product demonstrations on the exhibit floor,” said Robert B. Jones, Sr. Principal Engineer, Intel and DAC User Track Chair. “Attendees at DAC 2010 rated the User Track as on the most valuable parts of their DAC experience.”
The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for electronic design automation (EDA). A diverse worldwide community representing more than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives, and researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, intellectual property (IP) and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and is supported by ACM's Special Interest Group on Design.
