Welcome to DVCon 2010! DVCon is the premier conference for functional design and verification of digital electronic systems. The conference is focused on bringing you information from the leading edge of technology, techniques, standards and methods. We are gratified that DVCon continues to be one of the most respected technical conferences around, as our growth will attest, and we invite you to be a part of it.
The Conference has been expanded an extra half-day this year!
The strength of DVCon is undoubtedly our high-quality technical program, which we expanded last year by adding additional paper sessions. This year we continue to grow by adding another half-day to the conference, with three more sponsored tutorials being presented on Monday afternoon. This growth, combined with the substantial increase in submissions for the technical program, is further evidence that the leaders of our industry view DVCon as the place to be.
The Keynote Session and Industry Leaders Panel is free to all this year!
Our keynote speaker is Cadence Design Systems CEO Lip-Bu Tan, giving us his perspective as the CEO of a leading EDA solutions provider on our industry’s challenges and evolution. Following the keynote will be our popular “Industry Leaders” panel, moderated this year by JL Gray, of the “Cool Verification” EDA blog. This year’s panel will ask the panelists “What Keeps You Up At Night?” and other pressing questions about what they see as the market’s challenges and opportunities, as well as no-holds-barred questions from the audience.
As our industry grows and evolves, DVCon will grow and evolve with it. Remember, we’ve added an extra half-day to the program, so book your travel accordingly so you’ll be able to attend one of the new Monday tutorials. These added tutorial sessions provide even more opportunities for in-depth learning about leading-edge verification techniques as you’ve come to expect. This year’s program continues our tradition of providing a high level of educational and practical material that everyone can use in their daily work life. And don’t forget to visit our exhibit floor, where you can learn first-hand about state-of-the-art solutions from all of the leading EDA vendors.
We endeavor to deliver on the charter of DVCon by improving the functional design and verification of electronic systems. I believe you will find the expanded DVCon 2010 a great forum for learning from vendors, consultants, colleagues and friends about the latest in the design and verification industry.
We look forward to seeing you there!
