Registration opened this week for the Phil Kaufman Award Presentation and Dinner to honor Andrzej Strojwas, chief technologist at PDF Solutions and Keithley professor of Electrical and Computer Engineering at Carnegie Mellon University.
I hope you’ll join us for a celebration that helps us kicks off 2017. The dinner will be held Thursday, January 26, at the Fourth Street Summit Center in San Jose, Calif., where we held the dinner paying tribute to Mentor Graphics’ Wally Rhines in 2015. The evening will begin with a reception and cocktails at 6:30 p.m. The dinner and award presentation will be run from 7:30 p.m. until 9 p.m. We have special entertainment planned that will challenge your senses!
Andrzej is being recognized with the award, presented annually by the ESD Alliance and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA), for his pioneering research in the area of design for manufacturing (DFM) in the semiconductor industry.
Reservations are $175 per person for ESD Alliance and IEEE members or $250 per person for non-members. Seating is limited and we can accept R.S.V.P.s until Thursday, January 12. To reserve your seat at the 2016 Phil Kaufman Award Presentation and Dinner, visit our online registration.
