DVCon India 2019 Call For Tutorials







Call for Tutorials

The Design and Verification Conference & Exhibition India (DVCon India) is the premier technical conference in India targeting the application of standardized languages, tools and methodologies for the design and verification of electronic systems, embedded systems and integrated circuits. Hosted by Accellera Systems Initiative, the format of DVCon India is similar to the successful DVCon United States conference held for over 30 years in the Silicon Valley.

The goal of DVCon India is to boost the interest, usage and development of electronic system designs. DVCon India is looking for tutorial topics that are current, have a high-level of interest and offer strong continuing educational content. Highly qualified engineers are expected to attend the sponsored tutorials during DVCon India 2019. Tutorial sponsorship allows companies to reach a captive audience during the 90min educational sessions and the opportunity to follow up with them during breaks, at the exhibits, and following the event. DVCon India is a focused event for engineers addressing major design and verification issues. Conference attendees are primarily designers of embedded systems, electronic systems, ASICs and FPGAs, as well as those involved in the research, development and application of EDA tools and IP integration solutions. The DVCon India conference attracts a highly skilled user base active in various industries focusing on research and development of automotive, aerospace, consumer, and wired and wireless communication products. You can position your company at the forefront of these discussions by sponsoring a tutorial. Submit proposals by 17 June, 2019.
