Committee Members on Why You Should Attend DVCon 2017
Vanessa Cooper, Panel Chair
Year after year, I continue to be impressed by the number and quality of the panel submissions that we receive. I believe the audience will find that the two that were selected are both highly relevant and engaging topics. Both panels will be held on Wednesday, March 1.
The first panel, “Users Talk Back on Portable Stimulus” will be moderated by Adnan Hamid of Breker. Portable Stimulus is a new and exciting area of verification and this panel will give users a better idea of what to expect and to question the impact Portable Stimulus will have on verification.
The second panel, “SystemVerilog Jinxed Half My Career: Where Do We Go From Here?” is particularly timely since SystemVerilog is approaching its 15th anniversary. This panel will be moderated by Jonathan Bromley of Verilab. The panelists, along with the audience’s participation, will debate the impact that SystemVerilog has had on the verification industry as well as discuss what future changes would serve us best.
Both panels boast an impressive list of panelists, but I highly encourage the audience to jump in with questions to spur a more spirited conversation. We look forward to seeing you at DVCon U.S.!
Technical Program Committee Member Quotes!
In some ways I am the odd person out. As an academic, I have spent my career working on a lot of CAD tools in advanced application areas. With students I had a simulator up and running for VHDL 7.2 prior to standardization. I come to DVCON to monitor the evolvement of HDL Design and Verification. This is one of the few fields that is constantly evolving and in some ways is an art more than a science.
