DVCon 2010 Announces Best Paper Award

Strength of Technical Program Brings Quality Audience and More Sponsored Tutorials

BOULDER, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — March 2, 2010 — DVCon wrapped up last week with another strong year. Attendance, participation and sponsorship were all high, with overall attendance over the four day conference reaching 625. Traditionally a three day conference, attendance on the new fourth day was very strong.

The Award for Best Paper, as voted by conference attendees, went to Josh Rensch and Jesse Prusi of Lockheed Martin Corp. Rensch was the speaker and both authored the paper titled, “Effects of Abstraction in Stimulus Generation of Layered Protocols within OVM.” Upon receiving the award, both Rensch and Prusi were quick to acknowledge the contributions of Andy Meyer, formerly of Mentor Graphics Corp., to the paper as well.

“The conference was packed with valuable material all week,” commented Tom Fitzpatrick, DVCon General Chair. “More companies wanted to sponsor tutorials this year so we were able to accommodate the demand by adding a fourth day, giving attendees access to even more information and education. The exhibit halls and receptions were well-attended and the Twitter Tower added a social networking element to the traditional networking that is a mainstay of the conference. Many vendors also commented on the strength of the contacts they made during the week.”

Other highlights of the week included much lively discussion at the panel, “What Keeps you up at Night?” moderated by JL Gray. In a change from recent years, the panelists this year represented EDA users as opposed to vendors. Both the user and vendor communities were able to voice concerns and give points of view in a setting that allowed for open questions from the audience and candid answers from the panelists. The evening receptions were also well-attended and there were more co-located events at the conference this year than ever before.
