It's summertime, and in the EDA world, that can only mean one thing - it's time for the Design Automation Conference. I've been attending DAC since 2007, and for the second time since then DAC is in Anaheim, California. One of the things I find the most difficult about DAC is keeping track of what is going on when, so I thought I'd share what I've come up with so far with all of you. First, here are the events I will personally be participating in:
- 9a-noon: Synopsys Interoperability Booth
- 1:30p - Conversation Central: Verifying the Universe
- I'll be hosting a conversation with Tom Alsop and Hillel Miller about the UVM development effort. The conversation will be streamed live, and you'll be able to call and ask questions if you're not able to attend in person.
- 4:30pm - Moderating the Pavilion Panel: SoC Verification - Are we there yet?
In addition to these events, I've got the following public sessions penciled in on my calendar. Given the complexity of grabbing events from the DAC website and adding them to my calendar, I'm certain I've forgotten an item or two.
- Simulation-Based FlexRay™ Conformance Testing – An OVM Success Story, Jason Sprott - Verilab
- 7:30am - Accellera Breakfast Panel and Discussion: "UVM: Charting the New Territory"
- 12:00pm- CEDA Luncheon: "Beyond von Neumann Computing"
- 2:30-3:15pm: Pavilion Panel - High School Panel: You Don't Know Jack!
- 4:30-6pm: User Track - Front-end Testing and Verification
If you have any additional sessions you'd recommend I add to my list, let me know.
