edac The EDA Consortium 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, coordinating software anti-piracy efforts, a quarterly Market Statistics Service (MSS) report, and publication of an industry Operating Systems Roadmap. Companies that become EDA Consortium members are eligible for a 10% discount on DAC Exhibit Space. Contact the EDA Consortium today about membership opportunities.

DAC is proud to be SUPPORTED BY:

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.

Cande Logo
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.
IEEE/Council on Electronic Design Automation
The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) provides a focal point for EDA activities spread across six IEEE societies (Antennas and Propagation, Circuits and Systems, Computer, Electron Devices, Microwave Theory and Techniques, and Solid State Circuits). The Council sponsors or co-sponsors over a dozen key EDA conferences, including the Design Automation Conference (DAC) and the International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD), Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE) and events at Embedded Systems Week (ESWeek). The Council also publishes IEEE Transactions on CAD, as well as the newly launched IEEE Embedded Systems Letters. Since its founding, the Council has expanded its support of emerging areas within EDA such as nanoscale systems, sponsored new initiatives including the Distinguished Speaker Series and is increasing recognition to members of the EDA profession via awards such as the A. Richard Newton and Phil Kaufmann Awards. The Council welcomes new volunteers and local chapters. For more information on CEDA, visit: www.c-eda.org .

In Technical Cooperation with:
IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society
ACM 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 http://www.sigda.org.
