DAC is proud to be SPONSORED BY:

ACM is an educational and scientific society uniting the world’s computing educators, researchers and professionals to inspire dialogue, share resources and address the field’s challenges. ACM strengthens the profession’s collective voice through strong leadership, promotion of the highest standards, and recognition of technical excellence. ACM supports the professional growth of its members by providing opportunities for life-long learning, career development, and professional networking. For more information, please visit http://www.acm.org/. ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation/ http://www.sigda.org 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, SIGDA News highlighting most relevant events in EDA and semiconductor industry and the "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.

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:
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.
