Circuits and Systems Society
is the IEEE technical society for engineering professionals
involved with computer-aided design, theory, analysis, and practical
implementation of circuits, and the application of circuit theoretic
techniques to systems and to signal processing. The CAS Society's
global perspective brings information, education and participation
to the doorstep of its worldwide membership. We offer an extensive
program of publications, conferences, workshops, and technical
and educational activities, that encourage an active exchange
of information and ideas.
Computer Aided Network Design
(CANDE) is a technical committee of the IEEE Circuits and
Systems Society. CANDE is dedicated to bringing design automation
professionals together to further their education, to assist
in building relationships, and to sponsor initiatives which
grow the CAD/EDA industry. CANDE sponsors a workshop in the
Fall to address emerging technologies and to provide an opportunity
for the generation of new ideas. CANDE is the sponsoring technical
committee from CAS for both DAC and ICCAD.
The Council on Electronic Design Automation.
CEDA is an IEEE Council recently endorsed by the IEEE Technical Activities Board. CEDA aims to bring together the EDA related activities that run through many of the IEEE's societies, conferences and workshops. In the future, CEDA's responsibilities will include sponsorship of several conferences and publications, such as ICCAD, DAC, and the Transactions on CAD. Members of CEDA include the IEEE Antennas and Propagation, Computer, Circuits and Systems, Electron Devices, Microwave Theory and Techniques, and Solid State Circuits Societies.
Special Interest Group on
Design Automation has a long history of supporting conferences and the EDA profession. In addition to sponsoring DAC, SIGDA sponsors ICCAD, DATE, and ASP-DAC, plus approximately 15 smaller symposia and workshops. SIGDA provides a broad array of additional resources to our members, to students and professors, and to the EDA profession in general. SIGDA organizes the University Booth and Ph.D. Forum at DAC and the CADathlon at ICCAD, and funds various scholarships and awards. Other benefits provided to SIGDA members is the SIGDA's E-Newsletter (containing information on upcoming conferences and funding opportunities), emailed to SIGDA members twice each month. The SIGDA E-Newsletter also includes SIGDA News which highlights most relevant events in EDA and semiconductor industry and the NEW "What is...?" column that brings to the attention of EDA professionals the most recent topics of interest in design automation. For further information on SIGDA's programs and resources, see
is the international association of companies
that provide tools and services that enable engineers
to create the world's electronic products. EDA Consortium
addresses issues that are common to its members and the
community they serve. Recent accomplishments include simplification
of international EDA export regulation and publication
of an industry Operating Systems Roadmap. Companies that
become EDA Consortium members are eligible for a 10% discount
