LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — May 3, 2016 — The Design Automation Conference (DAC) once again will host Thursday is Training Day at the 53rd DAC, held this year from June 5 to June 9, 2016 in the Austin Convention Center in Austin, Texas.
For over 50 years DAC has offers outstanding education, exhibits and networking opportunities for designers, researchers, tool developers and vendors. Thursday is Training Day is one of the many ways the user/design community can be trained on the very latest design techniques. This year training day has been expanded to include management and professional sessions taught by experts from the University of Texas, Austin, Executive Education.
“Thursday Is Training Day at DAC is a once-a-year opportunity for attendees to take advantage of some excellent training and insights at the end of a conference full of tutorials, presentations, workshops, vendor information and just plain fun,” said Chuck Alpert, 53rd DAC General Chair. “We are fortunate once again to have Doulos, the global leader in the development and delivery of training solutions for electronic system design, join speakers from industry and the University of Texas at Austin.”
Training on Thursday, June 9, provides engineers with the latest technical, management and professional techniques and ideas required for today’s designs. Organized into separate subject-specific tracks, each track comprises two separate half-day sessions: in the morning from 10:15am to 1:15pm and in the afternoon from 2:15pm to 5:15pm.

The Design Automation Conference (
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.
