IEEE Council on EDA (CEDA) Hosts Opening ICCAD Reception, Talk on New Frontiers for EDA, Meeting to Promote EDA Blogging

NEW YORK—(BUSINESS WIRE)—October 21, 2008— The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) will host the opening reception of this years International Conference on Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD) Sunday, November 9, at 5:30 p.m. in the Doubletree Hotels Sierra Ballroom in San Jose, Calif.

The yearly networking event is meant to provide ICCAD attendees access to the Electronics Industrys most respected technical leaders. It will start with a brief introduction from CEDA President John Darringer of IBM Corporation, followed by brief descriptions of CEDA activities by various committee chairs.

Dr. Giovanni De Micheli from Ecole Polytèchniquè Federale de Lausanne in Lausanne, Switzerland, will discuss, Biology and the Environment: Frontiers for EDA?, a talk sponsored by CEDA, Tuesday, November 11, from noon-1:15 p.m. in the Sisikiyou Ballroom. He will illustrate how electronic design automation (EDA) and CAD technologies are well-positioned to impact biological and environmental systems with complexities far beyond those in human-engineered systems.

Additionally, CEDA will host an EDA Bloggers Birds-of-a-Feather Meeting Wednesday, November 12, from 4-6 p.m. in the Fir Ballroom. This session serves as a follow on to a similar event held at this years Design Automation Conference (DAC) and is intended to promote blogging. Attendees will discuss how blogging can help EDA companies and designers, including ways to fill the void left by the absence other media. They will hear about the experiences of seasoned bloggers and identify ways to foster blogging.

All are offered free of charge and are open to all ICCAD attendees.
