There’s a new kid on the EDA interoperability block. It’s the IEEE Standards Association’s Symposium on EDA Interoperability. It will be held on
October 14, 2013 October 24, 2013 at the TechMart in Santa Clara CA USA.
The event is open to everyone and there is no cost to attend. But you do have to register – here’s the link: http://bit.ly/1ao2ZGV for registration and details.
The keynote speaker will be the new Managing Director of the IEEE Standards Association, Konstantinos Karachalios. I work with Dr. Karachalios closely, and I think you’ll find him fascinating. He brings a global view of “technology governance”, rooted in standards from the IEEE and other standards-developing organizations. He is an eloquent and thought-provoking speaker, perfect to kick off the new symposium which will be an annual event.
Topics to be discussed at the symposium include power management, semiconductor IP interoperability, and custom design flows (meaning custom/analog design, not build-your-own flow).
A special “unconference” session will wrap up the day’s events. I participated in one of these a while ago, and it was not only a good opportunity to share ideas, but it was also quite fun.
Did I mention that lunch is included? Who says there’s no such thing as a free meal? ;)
I hope you can join me for the premiere episode of the IEEE-SA Symposium on EDA Interoperability.
