This year will mark the 30th year of the International Conference in Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD). Two special events planned by CEDA will take a retrospective look at the conference, and CAD in general, as it has evolved over the years.
The traditional ICCAD evening panel to be held Monday, November 5, from 6:30-7:30pm in Almaden 1 and 2 at the Hilton San Jose Hotel will revisit panel topics and predictions from years past. Moderated by Bill Joyner of the Semiconductor Research Corporation, it’s titled, “The Empire Strikes Back or Attack of the Clones? The Once and Future CAD.” For more details, visit: http://iccad.com/2012_event_details?id=149-120.
CEDA’s Distinguished Lecture Series continues Tuesday, November 6, from noon-1:45 p.m. and will feature Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli of the University of California, Berkeley, speaking on the past and future evolution of computer-aided integrated circuit design. With a career spanning the life of the conference, influential in both the academic and industrial evolution of EDA, Alberto is uniquely qualified to provide a long-term perspective.
