49th Design Automation Conference User Track: For Users by Users, Submissions Due Jan. 17
| | Rate | Review | Notices

Presentation abstracts for embedded systems and software -- front-end and back-end -- accepted until January 17, 2012

LOUISVILLE, Colo. – December 14, 2011 -- The Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier event on automation and design of electronic systems, features the User Track, an exciting forum for design professionals to share their work with other experts. DAC invites system designers, application engineers, IC designers, design-flow developers and vendor-customer teams to submit two-page abstracts for consideration. A typical User Track contribution describes solutions to practical issues related to EDA tools in a design flow. The User Track is part of the 49th DAC, which will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, from June 3-7, 2012.

The User Track includes three broad topic areas: Embedded Systems and Software, Front-end Silicon Design, and Back-end Silicon Design. This inclusion of Embedded Systems and Software reflects the strong growth in Embedded System design activity. User Track presentations may be problem-specific in scope (e.g., analyzing substrate coupling during floorplanning) or may address an application domain (e.g., designing wireless handsets). Initial submissions are two-page extended abstracts—a quick and convenient format for busy professionals.

Abstract submissions are now open and run through January 17, 2012. Please visit www.dac.com/usertrack for detailed User Track information and submission guidelines.

“The DAC User Track provides practical, real-life information on tool use and best design practices. It is an excellent supplement for the product demonstrations on the exhibit floor,” said Robert B. Jones, Sr. Principal Engineer, Intel and DAC User Track Chair. “Past DAC attendees have rated the User Track a valuable part of their overall DAC experience.” 

The Technical Program Committee for the User Track is made up of expert designers and tool users from across the industry. Said Jones, “The strength and quality of the 2012 User Track Program Committee is evidence of the User Track’s continuing growth and relevance. We are pleased this year to have 35 committee members representing 23 different companies.”

Each User Track topic area has a dedicated sub-committee:

About DAC
The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for electronic design automation (EDA). A diverse worldwide community representing more than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives, and researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, intellectual property (IP) and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and is supported by ACM's Special Interest Group on Design.
