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) and silicon solutions. A diverse
worldwide community of 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 as well as 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, and
intellectual property (IP) companies 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.
