DVCon 2011: Final Conference Program and Technical Proceedings Here

Friday, February 25th, 2011


The Design Verification Conference and Exhibition is happening Mon. Feb. 28 through Thurs. Mar. 3 at the DoubleTree Hotel, 2050 Gateway Place in San Jose, CA.

EDACafe will be doing video interviews in the Press Room – the Silicon Valley Room at the top of the stairs – and will not be in the Exhibit Hall.  There were so many new companies exhibiting we gave up our booth location so everyone could participate.

If you cannot attend the conference or just want a preview of the extensive program, then there are a number of online links you can jump to.

1.  You can see the Final Conference Program here.

2.  There are some additonal events that are not in the Final Program.

Strategies in Verification for Random Test Generation: New Techniques and Technologies: Tuesday, March 1
Donner Ballroom 6:30pm

Qualcomm Social Event: Monday, February 28
Donner Ballroom 6:00 – 8:00pm

3.  The Technical Proceedings are now online.   Below, I have expanded each of the session topics so you can jump directly to the ones that interest you.

30 New DesignCon Video Interviews

Monday, February 21st, 2011

My bad self was at the DesignCon Conference and Exhibition in Santa Clara on Feb. 1 and 2 doing video interviews in front of the green screen at the EDACafe / PCBCafe booth. If you weren’t at the show or missed some of the exhibits and announcements, then you will want to check out the videos here.

I also did a photo gallery of the exhibits.  You can see the pictures here.

Let me know what interviews you like and for the ones you didn’t what question should I have asked.

Happy Presidents Day
