Gainesville, FL – June 8, 2022 - The 2023 Design and Verification Conference and Exhibition United States (DVCon U.S.), sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, announces its call for panel, short workshop, and tutorial proposals. DVCon U.S. 2023 will be held February 27 -March 2, 2023, at the Doubletree Hotel in San Jose, California.
DVCon U.S. 2023 will host one panel session. The one-hour panel is intended to be a lively discussion among panelists and thought-provoking for attendees. It can be controversial and should be on a topic of interest to the design and verification community.
Suggested topics include: Experiences using design and/or verification IP for SoC development; Experiences applying machine-learning techniques; Experiences adopting functional-safety related standards such as ISO26262, DO-254, etc.; Design and verification sign-off and closure; Dealing with the technical and logistical challenges of multi-site projects; Developing, adopting and proliferating new standards; Experiences deploying a verification methodology library, especially the deployment of UVM; Designing and/or verifying complex ASICs and FPGAs using multiple HDLs and/or HVLs in a design cycle; Organizational and technological challenges in a pandemic; and What will our industry look like in 5-10 years given the COVID-19 disruption?
More information and guidelines can be found here.
Sponsored Short Workshops Information
Short workshops are sponsored 90-minute sessions available to all attendees registered for the full conference program. The workshops will be held on both Monday and Thursday during the conference. Presenters of short workshops can choose between a hands-on or lecture format. Short workshops are intended to provide more opportunities for participation from companies and exhibitors, especially smaller organizations, at an affordable level.
Sponsored Tutorials Information
