SUBMISSION

ABSTRACT TEMPLATE

 

The Design & Verification Conference & Exhibition is the premier conference on the application of languages, tools, methodologies and standards for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits. The focus of this highly technical conference is on the practical aspects of these technologies and their use in leading-edge projects to encourage attendees to adopt similar techniques to improve their own design and verification flows.

In addition to the specific topic areas suggested below, submissions may incorporate:

  • usage of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools such as simulation, emulation, formal verification, virtual prototyping and/or FPGA prototyping
  • FPGA-based designs
  • usage of specialized design and verification languages such as SystemVerilog, SystemC, and e
  • assertions in SVA or PSL
  • the use of general purpose and scripting languages such as C, C++, Perl, Python, Tcl and others
  • applications of the new Accellera Portable Stimulus Standard
  • applications of design patterns or other innovative language techniques
  • the use of AMS languages
  • Internet of Things applications

This call for abstracts solicits for papers and corresponding presentations that are highly technical and reflect real-life experiences and emerging trends in various domains. Submissions are encouraged in (but not restricted to) the following areas:

Topic Area 1: VERIFICATION AND VALIDATION

  • Advanced methodologies and testbenches
  • Verification processes, regressions and resource management

Submission Guidelines

Abstract submission is Open!

An initial submission is required before the full paper. The submission should be between a minimum of 600 words and a maximum of 1200 words (approximately 2 pages, not including diagrams, figures or tables).

In general, please provide enough details so that the Technical Program Committee can evaluate the potential quality and interest of your proposed presentation at DVCon India.

The initial submission should include:

  • Title: The paper title.
  • Contact information: Name, affiliation, phone number and email address for all authors.
  • Short Abstract: Outline that clearly states the context and motivation of your contribution, approx. 100 words.
  • Related Work: Identify other work on which this submission will be built, and the novelty of the paper.
  • Application: Clearly describe the technical contribution, reflect real life experiences, and its industrial application.
  • (Preliminary) results: Summarize the results. State how these differ from previous work or state-of-the-art on the same subject.
  • Conclusions: Summarize major conclusions and findings presented in the paper.

Accepted authors will be invited and agree to do the following:

  • Submit the final version of the paper (max. 8 pages) after incorporating feedback from the TPC (TBD)
  • Register for the conference
  • Submit a copyright form
  • All accepted authors agree to present an oral or poster presentation at the conference (25- 26 September, 2019).

Please note: Consistent with the requirements for other DVCon India presentations, your presentation may contain your company logo only on the title slide, and should use the provided templates.

Please do your initial submission via the Link by 2 May, 2019.
