DVCon is the premier conference on the application of languages, tools, and methodologies for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits. The focus of the conference is the usage of specialized design and verification languages such as Verilog, SystemVerilog, VHDL, PSL, SystemC and e, as well as general purpose languages such as C, C++, PERL, Tcl, and Python. Tools and methodologies include the use of testbench automation, portable stimulus, hardware-assisted verification, hardware/software co-verification, assertion-based and formal verification, transaction-level system design, high level synthesis, low power design techniques, 3D chip designs, IP based SoC design methods, reference flows and AMS/DMS design and Portable Stimulus.
DVCon is looking for short workshops to encourage greater sponsorship participation from companies and exhibitors, especially smaller organizations at an affordable level. For these short workshops the topics need to be current, have a high-level of interest and offer strong continuing educational content.
Short Workshop sponsors reach a captive audience during the 45-minute educational sessions and could follow-up with attendees during breaks and following the event. DVCon is a highly targeted venue for engineers addressing major design and verification issues.
Submit proposals by August 15th, 2021
SHORT WORKSHOP PROPOSAL REQUIREMENTS
DVCon short workshops are open to all attendees and are included in the full conference registration. Please include in the proposal the name of the companies that will be sponsoring the short workshop.
Attendee expectations are high regarding topic, depth of engineering content and breadth of real-life examples. The Tutorial Chair will review final presentation materials to ensure high quality educational content.
Your proposal should be a short abstract of the short workshop, two to five paragraphs, 1,000 words maximum. The submission must include suggested presenters’ names, affiliations, and biographies.
Presentation slides need to be supplied in an electronic format in advance of the conference. Presentation slides will be distributed to the attendees in electronic format. Hard copies will not be provided.
Please indicate if this short workshop is a “hands-on” session or lecture format. Any necessary additional hardware that you may require must be provided by the short workshop organizers.
