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). Members of a diverse worldwide
community from more than 1,000 organizations attend 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.
