The 51st Design Automation Conference (DAC) will take place June 1-5 in San Francisco, and Cadence is preparing a number of activities. This year Cadence is participating in technology sessions, customer/partner presentations, papers and panels, and three lunches and one breakfast. And of course, the world-famous Denali Party will once again be a "can't miss" event.
Cadence Theater at DAC 2013 in Austin, Texas
DAC 2014 will be held at the Moscone Convention Center in downtown San Francisco. The program includes five keynotes, nine SKY (Short Keynote) talks, 12 panels, 16 DAC Pavilion panels, and over 70 research paper sessions (including poster sessions).
