Conferences: Paper submission deadlines approach

Thursday, July 28th, 2016

 


A number of conferences important to EDA and IP
 are coming up over the next 12 months and currently looking for content. If you have an industry-relevant topic you’d like to talk about, the organizers of some of these conferences need to hear from you soon. Various deadlines are looming, most over the next few weeks.

Meanwhile, it’s interesting to consider that one of the most thrill- for-your-buck conferences on the list is Black Hat USA 2016 and Synopsys’ co-located CodenomiCON, both promising to teach you everything you need to know or are allowed to know about cybersecurity. Synopsys’ involvement in Black Hat may validate a comment overheard recently: ‘Synopsys is no longer really an EDA company. They’ve become a software integrity company.’

Also interesting, DVCon in San Jose and Mobile World in Barcelona in 2017 are on the exact same days. Perhaps there’s no overlap in the attendee population. But most interesting on the list, the sheer scale of the China International Modern Industry & Intelligent Equipment Exhibition with 500+ exhibitors, over 40,000 attendees, and more topics that you can possibly imagine.

Shishpal Rawat: Intel, CEDA, Accellera, Calm Commitment

Thursday, July 14th, 2016

 


Intel’s Shishpal Rawat has been Chair of Accellera for 6 years and is currently serving as President of CEDA
, IEEE’s Council on Electronic Design Automation. In previous discussions, Rawat has insisted that his leadership is not what makes these organizations work. Only the enthusiastic efforts of the many members guarantee that both Accellera and CEDA continue to shape ideas, standards, and forward progress within design automation and its adjacent technologies.

Two years ago, I enjoyed a lengthy interview with Rawat about all of this, described here. This year, I’ve chatted with Rawat at DVCon in San Jose in March, and again by phone just prior to DAC in June. During the phone call, Rawat focused on CEDA’s activities at DAC in Austin. He told me the upcoming Sunday night panel, set to be moderated by SRC’s Bill Joyner on June 5th, was a new and very exciting addition to the DAC program.

This world: sometimes knit together by sorrow

Thursday, July 7th, 2016


It was the middle of the morning on a school day in California
when the President was shot in November 1963. The principal came over the PA system and announced the President was injured in Dallas and was in surgery. She asked all teachers to suspend classroom activities and wait for further news.

In my class, our teacher told us to take something out to read and sat down at his desk at the front of the room. After a very long time, the principal came back on the PA. The President had died. She asked teachers to help their students understand what had happened.

Our teacher sat very still at his desk for a long time and then stood up. He started to speak, but stopped. He took off his glasses with his left hand and covered his eyes with his right. For at least 10 minutes he stood like that, still and silent with his eyes covered.
