The A. Richard Newton Young Student Fellow Program at DAC 2015 Is Now Accepting Submissions

An opportunity for students to engage in the premier event focused on design and automation of electronic systems

LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — February 9, 2015 — In honor of the memory of Dr. A. Richard Newton, the Design Automation Conference (DAC) is pleased to sponsor The Newton Young Student Fellow Program. This program actively supports the next generation by enabling young students at the beginning of a career to enter the dynamic world of design and automation of electronic systems. Each Young Student Fellow will actively engage in DAC through a number of events, including meetings with design automation luminaries, attendance at technical sessions and exhibits, participation in student-related events at DAC, and a poster session designed to introduce each Young Student Fellow to the DAC community.

Each selected Fellow will receive a free DAC full conference registration including tutorials. In addition, DAC will issue partial travel grants to cover travel expenses, subject to some matching funds from the student’s advisor or university.

The awardees will participate in the following activities during the conference:

  • Kickoff breakfast meeting on Monday morning.
  • Selected conference sessions, including sessions with Best Paper Award nominations.
  • Poster presentation (either current research, or relevant coursework/projects) introducing each Fellow during the DAC student event.
  • Attendance at the Awards Session.
  • Attendance at the closing session during the Thursday evening reception.
  • Social media postings (tweets, Facebook, Linkedin, etc.) to provide timely news, photos and feedback on events during DAC

The awardees are required to actively participate in all the events in this program and to blog about their experiences at DAC on social media outlets at least twice daily.

For over 51 years, DAC has striven to foster a vibrant worldwide community of electronic design and embedded systems professionals along with improving the diversity among attendees. This program is specifically designed to give young students their first experience with EDA. Think of it as an EDA ‘kickstarter.’

Preference is given to junior or senior undergraduates in Engineering; to under-represented demographics such as woman and minorities; to students in smaller research groups; to students pursuing a Master degree and pre-candidacy PhD students. In past years, DAC has sponsored over 70 students as part of this program.

“DAC is recognized as the premier technical conference focused on design and automation of electronic systems,” said Soha Hassoun, the 51st DAC Past Chair. “The Newton Young Student program provides a unique opportunity for students to participate in DAC activities as part of a large and supportive cohort of students. Students will learn, interact and network within the electronic design ecosystem.”

To apply for a Newton Young Student Fellowship, applicants must complete the application form found at http://dac.com/Richard-Newton-Submit. The submission site is open now through March 27, 2015. Qualifying students will be notified by April 21, 2015. Conference participation will be June 7 – 11, 2015 at Moscone Center, San Francisco, CA.
