34th ACM SIGDA/IEEE CEDA University Demonstration Call for Participation!

Date: June 24,  2024

Location: Moscone Center West, San Francisco

ACM SIGDA/IEEE CEDA University Demonstration (UD, previously University Booth) is a great opportunity for university researchers to showcase their results and to interact with participants at the Design Automation Conference (DAC). Presenters and attendees at DAC are especially encouraged to participate, but participation is open to all members of the university community. The demonstrations include new EDA tools, EDA tool applications, design projects, and instructional materials.

The University Demonstration will be held together with the ACM SIGDA/IEEE CEDA Ph.D. Forum at DAC.
