Every year at DAC, I'm amazed at how many engineers miss out on events attended by some of the most influential names in EDA. One example already this year was the Phil Kauffman award presentation earlier this evening, attended by Aart De Geus, Wally Rhines, Lip-Bu Tan, and Kathryn Kranen among others. Another example each year is the pavilion panel put on by the Women in Electronic Design Automation. This year's panel topic is "The Road to Success!". Here's the synopsis:
Don’t go it alone! How many times have you heard it? A lively panel of luminaries discuss how alliances are critical to our success, and cover networking and negotiating skills for achieving personal satisfaction and professional visibility. Also hear various perspectives on the importance of nonsense, and how to consciously incorporate humor and joy into your work life. An informative and inspiring event for both women and men, in electronics and EDA, at any stage in your career.
Moderator: Sashi Obilisetty - Synopsys, Inc., Mountain View, CA Panelists: Soha Hassoun - Tufts Univ., Medford, MA Jan Willis - Calibra Consulting, London, United Kingdom Kavita Snyder - Blue Pearl Software, Inc., Santa Clara, CA
