IEEE Council on EDA Hosts Events at DAC

The IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) will host a reception and Distinguished Speaker Lecture during the 44th Design Automation Conference (DAC) Monday, June 4, starting at 6 p.m. in the Sails Pavilion at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, Calif. This networking event and interactive technical presentation, which includes a light dinner, is open to all.

The program will include a presentation from C.-J. Richard Shi of the University of Washington and co-author of the IEEE Transactions on CAD Donald O. Pederson Best Paper Award, titled “On symbolic model order reduction.” Dr. Shi will describe symbolic model order reduction (SMOR), the problem of reducing a large circuit that contains symbolic circuit parameters to smaller low order models at its ports.

The reception will honor new IEEE Fellows and Dr. Randal E. Bryant, dean of the School of Computer Science at Carnegie Mellon University and winner of the IEEE Emanuel R. Piore Prize.

Andreas Kuehlmann, CEDA’s vice president of Technical Activities, Cadence fellow and director of Cadence Laboratories Cadence Berkeley Labs: “This series is becoming a yearly CEDA tradition at DAC. We hope many of DAC’s attendees join us for an evening of networking and learning.”

About the Council on EDA
The Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA) is IEEE’s focal point for multiple EDA disciplines. Its goal is to bring increased value to IEEE members by coordinating EDA activities, enabling new initiatives, fostering interdisciplinary research and recruiting young talent to EDA. It also will increase visibility for IEEE-sponsored EDA events such as the Design Automation Conference (DAC) and International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD) and its technical publications. Its charter spans theory, implementation and use of computer aided design (CAD) tools to design integrated electronic circuits and systems.
