Design Automation Summer School



SIGDA (ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation)

Design Automation Conference

 

NSF (National Science Foundation)

The Design Automation Summer School (DASS) will offer graduate students the opportunity to participate in a two-day intensive course on research and development in design automation (DA). Each topic in this course will be covered by a distinguished speaker who will define the topic, describe recent accomplishments, and indicate remaining challenges. Interactive discussions and follow-up activities among the participants will be used to reinforce and expand upon the lessons.

 

The goal of DASS is to broaden often highly focused curriculum in DA that is currently offered at universities. The DASS also complements educational and professional development activities in the electronic design automation arena including scholarships, awards, and outreach projects such as the University Booth, the CADathlon, and the Design Automation Conference (DAC) Ph.D. forum that have met with tremendous success over the past decade. These programs are intended to introduce and outline emerging challenges, and to foster creative thinking in the next generation of DA engineers. Simultaneously, they also help the students hone their problem solving, programming, and teamwork skills, in addition to fostering long-term collegial relationships.

 

DASS will be held as a joint event with DAC 2013 in Austin. The program is on Sunday June 2nd and Monday June 3rd at   Austin Convention Center Room # 4ABC.
