We are seeking presentations on design topics that illustrate your experiences with Cadence products, solutions, flows, methodologies, and techniques as described below.
Cadence technologies: Presentations should share experiences with Cadence technology and illustrate exciting ways in which design and verification teams have successfully used these technologies on their most recent projects.
Design methods and case studies: Presentations should describe innovative methodologies or specific examples that highlight design flows using Cadence methodologies to develop cutting-edge silicon, SoCs, and full systems.
Design techniques: Presentations should describe interesting and innovative design experiences related to specific design projects. These submissions should be more “how to” in nature and include a brief description of the design and discuss methodology, flow, and innovative use models.
Abstract submissions should be no more than 2,500 characters, clearly stating the significant contribution, impact, and results of the submission. All abstracts will be reviewed. Authors of accepted presentations must sign a copyright release form for their paper. Notice of acceptance will be sent via email. Examples of last year’s presentations can be viewed here.
When preparing your abstract, keep these points in mind:
- Total session time is 30 minutes. Prepare your session for approximately 20-25 minutes leaving 5-10 minutes for 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)
- For submissions for the academic track, a 2-page abstract is required. Download the template!
