Next week is EDAC's annual CEO forecast panel. It is in the Doubletree in San Jose. The big guys are all here this year, Aart, Wally and Lip-Bu (isn't it great that in EDA all the CEOs just need a first name since none of them are called John or something more common). Simon Segars of ARM (not the CEO but indeed the President of ARM). This year's token startup CEO is a heavy hitter: Raul Camposano, currently CEO of Nimbic but for many years CTO (and other positions) at Synopsys. Richard Valera of Needham is the moderator.
The panel is at 7.00pm on March 14th, with a reception starting at 6pm. It is free for EDAC members (but you still have to register). $50 for anyone else (I wonder sometimes if anyone actually pays). Details are here. Registration page is here.
