Welcome to the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) blog. We thank EDACafe for hosting it and hope that you will find it of value.
To launch the blog, I’ll start with a short description of CEDA and an overview of our work. CEDA was created to have a single unit within the world’s largest professional organizational for electrical and electronic engineers that focuses on design automation.
CEDA sponsors more than a dozen conferences and workshops, including the Design Automation Conference (DAC), International Conference on Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD), Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE), and Embedded Systems Week (ESWEEK). Further, CEDA publishes two main journals, the IEEE Transactions on Computer-Aided Design and the IEEE Embedded Systems Letters.
Since its founding in 2006, CEDA has ramped up a number of technical activities, including the support of student contests, organizing a Distinguished Speaker Series, special conference sessions on selected topics such as emerging fields in our profession, ethics, or simply funding opportunity for academic and industrial researchers.
CEDA recognizes key contributions of members of our community by various awards including the A. Richard Newton Award, the Phil Kaufman Award, and the Early Career Award. Additionally, CEDA helps distinguished IEEE members in design automation to advance to the level of IEEE Fellow.
Volunteers who work in seven committees ranging from Technical Activities to Award Selection accomplish the bulk of CEDA’s work. If you are interested in helping or have some feedback for us, please check out our webpage at www.c-eda.org.
