The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is acknowledged as the top conference for electronic chip and system design and design automation. DAC provides designers, researchers, tool developers, and suppliers with excellent training, education, displays, and networking possibilities. The conference is supported by the Council on Electronic Design Automation of the IEEE and the Special Interest Group on Design Automation (SIGDA) of ACM. It is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) (CEDA).
Each year, more than 1,000 organizations from around the world send representatives to the conference, including system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives, and academics and researchers from prestigious universities.
Over the course of five days, DAC offers more than 300 technical presentations and sessions that are chosen by a committee of electronic design and university research experts. These sessions cover topics such as management techniques, new products, methodologies, and technologies in the electronics industry, as well as recent developments and trends.
