Kaufman Award Presentation Moves to DAC, Call for Nominations Extended
October 15th, 2012 by Donatella Sciuto, President of CEDA
Now everyone in our community will have an opportunity to personally congratulate the next Phil Kaufman Award recipient because we’re moving the ceremony to DAC in celebration of its 50th anniversary.
The presentation for the prestigious Phil Kaufman Award for Distinguished Contributions to EDA will be held Sunday, June 2, following the DAC Sunday Night Welcome Reception.
Yes, the sponsors — IEEE CEDA and the EDA Consortium — decided to move the presentation to DAC instead of the traditional October dinner in San Jose to give more of our community a chance to participate. It’s also a way for the industry to fully embrace and celebrate 50 years of Design Automation.
As a result of the move to DAC, the call for nominations for the Phil Kaufman Award has been extended until Thursday, January 31. All current and past nominations will be considered. Please consider nominating someone. Nomination forms are available at:
While I didn’t know Phil Kaufman, he seemed like a remarkable industry pioneer. He turned innovative technologies into businesses that have benefited electronic designers. The award was established in 1994 and recognizes individuals whose contributions have had a demonstrable impact on the field of EDA in the areas of business, industry direction and promotion, technology and engineering, and/or education and mentoring. Impartiality is provided to all nominees, without regard to race, gender, age or national origin.
