Realizing EDA360 – Call for Papers October 26, 2010 — Fairmont Hotel, San Jose CA

The Call for Papers is now closed!

If you have submitted an abstract, you will be notified of your status no later than September 17. First draft of presentations will be due October 6.

Guidelines for preparing your abstract

  • Prepare your abstract for a 25-minute session, not counting audience Q&A.
  • Set up the problem/need your session will address. (1-2 sentences)
  • How will your session solve this problem/meet this need? Mention the main points/topics your session will cover. (1-3 sentences)
  • What technologies, services, or methodologies were employed to meet this need? (1-2 sentences)
  • What case study(ies) will be cited as examples of success? (1-2 sentences)
  • How will your session help attendees or their customers? Will they save time to market? Reduce overhead? Increase productivity? Quantify the big benefit. Example: saved 6-8 weeks. (1-2 sentences)
  • 1500 character limit (including spaces)

Content tips

Rating of abstracts for final papers and presentations will be based upon the following criteria:

  • Clarity – Well organized and easily understood. A good indicator of what can be expected in the full-length paper.
  • Relevance – Of interest to the user group audience and in line with the track topic.
  • Technical impact – Important results, techniques, or case studies of special significance.
  • Originality – New design methodologies employed or a case study for an innovative design.
  • Practicality – Reference products in a case study or as a proof-of-concept for a design methodology, but avoid product pitches. The goal is to demonstrate feasibility or illustrate a concept, not sell the product.
