How to pre-record your presentation: 

GOOD CLEAR AUDIO and CLEAR EASY TO READ SLIDES are essential

It is required that you review the best practice guidelines before pre-recording. 


FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

What is the DIET submission process?

To spare experts from industry the many hours of preparation associated with a regular manuscript submission, DIET (Designer, IP, Embedded Systems) submissions are in the form of a 6-slide PowerPoint presentation. Authors of the highest quality submissions will be invited to present their work in DIET sessions at the conference and a poster on the same subject during a poster session. Other authors may also be invited to present a poster during a poster session.

Why DIET Tracks? How is it different from the Research Track?

The DIET Tracks are intended specifically for design engineers. This complements DAC’s strong research focus on algorithms and methodology. 

What is the DIET submission timeline?

  • October 1, 2020: Submission site open.
  • January 20, 2021: Submission deadline
  • March 10, 2021: Notification - Accept as poster, accept as presentation, or reject notifications will be emailed to authors.
  • March 24, 2021: Confirmation Forms Due - Accepted posters and presentations must submit a confirmation form.
  • May 15, 2021: Bio & Draft Slides Due - Submission deadline for draft of final posters and/or presentations and speaker bios (for full talks only). All material will be reviewed by Session Chairs.
  • May 22, 2021: Slide Feedback - Deadline for Session Chairs to communicate poster and slide presentation feedback to authors.
  • June 1, 2021: Final Slides and Video Due - Deadline for authors to submit final poster and/or presentation slides and video for the DAC archive.

Are DIET presentations and posters included in the DAC Proceedings?

No. However, DIET posters and/or presentation slides will be made available online if the authors give permission. They will be made available on the DAC website after the conference as a part of the DAC Archive.

Do DIET participants have to register for DAC?

Full DAC conference registrants are automatically allowed to attend DIET sessions. In addition, both DIET speakers and any participants who want to attend only the DIET sessions, Keynotes, and the Exhibit Floor at DAC can do so at a discounted registration rate via the “DIET Special”  registration package. Registration details will be released shortly.
