47th Design Automation Conference (DAC) Extends Speakers Bureau Deadline

LOUISVILLE, CO. –– December 21, 2009 –– The Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier conference devoted to electronic design and design automation (EDA), has extended the deadline for submissions to the Speakers’ Bureau to January 13, 2010. The DAC Speakers Bureau will act as a resource center from which the DAC Executive Committee can contact industry experts and thought leaders for participation in invited sessions, panels, and other speaking opportunities at the 47th DAC in the Anaheim Convention Center, in Anaheim, California, from June 13-18, 2010.

DAC invites third-party nominations and self-nominations for interesting and experienced speakers in all areas of EDA, including:
  • Analog/Mixed-Signal and RF
  • Beyond Die-Integration and Package/Hybrid/Board Design
  • Circuit Simulation and Interconnect Analysis
  • Embedded HW Design and Applications
  • Embedded SW Tools and Design
  • FPGA Design Tools and Applications
  • High-Level Synthesis
  • Logic Synthesis and Circuit Optimization
  • New or Emerging or Specialized Design Technologies
  • Physical Design and Manufacturability
  • Power Analysis and Low-Power Design
  • Signal Integrity and Design Reliability
  • System-Level Communication and Networks on Chip
  • System-Level Design and Co-Design
  • Testing
  • Timing Analysis and Design for Manufacturability
  • Verification
Nominations can be made at http://www.mpassociates.com/easysubmit/DACSpeakers_Bureau_submit.html. Third-party nominations, highlighting prior presentations by the nominated speaker that generated substantial audience interest, will be especially appreciated.

“In the course of evaluating a variety of sessions for the technical program, DAC Executive Committee members often find that they need a reservoir of experienced and well-regarded speakers from which to draw,” said Greg Spirakis, Panel Chair, 47th DAC Executive Committee. “Rather than simply relying on our collective memory, we look forward to having access to a bureau of information on speakers with a wide range of technical, company, and speaking experience.”

About DAC
The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for Electronic Design Automation (EDA) and silicon solutions. A diverse worldwide community representing more than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives to researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its Exhibition and Suite area with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, IP and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association of Computing Machinery/Special Interest Group on Design Automation (ACM/SIGDA), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA).
