October 20th is just around the corner, so please click here to register for the 2015 Silicon Valley IP Users Conference. It’s hard to see anything about this event not to like: wine, excellent speakers, conversations very specific to the technology and business of IP, and did we mention wine? It’s being held at the Testarossa Winery in Los Gatos.
Of course, it’s hats off to IPextreme’s Constellations consortium for hosting the day-long event, plus special kudos to EDAC for an innovative outlook allowing that consortium to sponsor the 4 pm end-of-day networking reception even though not a single EDA company is on the speaker list. But what’s especially impressive about the October 20th event is the suggestion that various stake-holders in the IP industry can come together in this manner.
IP is still having to fight for full representation at DAC and even to a certain extent within EDAC, despite the ARM CEO being on the Board of Directors, so an enthusiastic conference and rounds of conversation arranged for and by the IP industry is pretty damn cool stuff.
