Welcome Message from the General Chair

I am pleased to welcome you all to the 4th edition of DVCon India planned on 14-15, September 2017 at the Leela Palace Hotel, Bangalore.

DVCon India is a must attend conference dedicated to design and verification of IPs, SoCs and electronic systems. The conference provides an excellent platform for attendees to discuss, network and contribute to the standards, flows and methodologies enabling silicon product realization. The Indian edition of this conference has been receiving overwhelming response for the last three years in parallel to DVCon US, Europe and now in China.

Today, the semiconductor industry is experiencing a major change in its landscape. Post the PC & mobile era, all eyes are on IoT and Automotive which is an ecosystem of interconnected devices that are high on performance, low on power consumption, cheap and highly customized to the end user expectations. This requires a paradigm shift in how we design products enabling first silicon success faster than ever before. Starting from the concept exploration at the system level and bringing it down to the IPs interconnected on the SoC, DVCon India touches different aspects of design and verification and also tries to bring an overall system perspective at Application point of view. The discussions and information exchange covers a wide variety of topics, representing the latest developments and future trends in this domain. The Government of India expects investment proposals in electronics manufacturing to increase two times in the next two years from the push to the government's 'Make in India' initiative. DVCon India will discuss on the initiative and Make in India concepts from experts.

Every year strong and dedicated committee members are identified and they work relentlessly to come up with a 2 day packed agenda covering keynotes from industry luminaries, tutorials from experts not restricted to EDA companies, panel discussions with leaders, papers and posters from the fraternity. Attendees are free to choose between ESL and DV track based on the topics of interest and learn further from what’s next at the exhibitor stalls. Both the days provide multiple opportunities to network and connect with the peers in the industry. The technical sessions are spiced up with lot of fun at the gala dinner on DAY 1. With a track record of more than 600 experts, representing 80+ organizations from all over the world, DVCon India is a unique conference for all members of the semiconductor ecosystem.

I look forward to meeting you all. Join in this Exciting journey with all earnestness and get enthralled by the learning experience at DVCon India 2017!
