North American SystemC User's Group (NASCUG) Seeks DVCon Presentations

The North American SystemC User’s Group (NASCUG) accelerates the use of SystemC for both new and established users by providing venues for users to contribute, learn, and interact. Following the great success of the first five meetings, we are calling for contributions to NASCUG VI, to be co-located with the Design and Verification Conference (DVCon) 2007, to be held February 21-23, 2007 in San Jose, CA USA.

A central component of the half-day user’s group meeting is a number of 20 minute user experience presentations discussing techniques of design, modeling and verification using SystemC. A new addition to NASCUG VI will be two to three “how-to” presentations focused on clarifying poorly understood or commonly underused or misused SystemC features.

TOPICS (include but are not restricted to):

  • Architectural Modeling with SystemC
  • Transaction-Level Modeling
  • Software Co-Design with SystemC
  • Platform Design Using SystemC
  • Verification Techniques Using SystemC
  • Integrating SystemC into the Design Flow
  • SystemC Tool Flows and Methodologies
  • SystemC Language Development

The final contribution should be a PowerPoint or PDF slide presentation with duration of about 20 minutes (for “how-to” presentations approval may be given for up to 40 minutes). Presentations are expected to be of current topical interest to attendees and should consider the following:

  • What is unique to the audience
  • The value/contribution of the technology being presented
  • Summary of results for the project

A title and an abstract (of about 500 words) for a user experience presentation or “how to” presentation can be submitted on-line.


  • Abstract Deadline: December 8th, 2006
  • Notification: December 22nd, 2006
  • Final Slides Due: February 2, 2007
