LOUISVILLE, Colo. – February 16, 2012 -- The Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier event on automation and design of electronic systems, features a unique Work-In-Progress (‘WIP’) forum that enables researchers to share preliminary results and receive constructive feedback on their work. It is a quick and low-threshold way to reach DAC’s large expert audience without jeopardizing the option for a full publication at a later stage. A DAC WIP submission is a concise single-page summary that clearly specifies the technical problem, outlines the solution and provides the early results. WIP submissions are accepted for presentation at a poster session during the 49th DAC, which will be held at the Moscone Center in San Francisco, California, from June 3-7, 2012. Submissions must be received by 5pm MT on March 12th, 2012.
Submissions are judged by the DAC Technical Program Committee. A 100-word summary abstract of accepted WIP submissions will be published on the DAC website. WIP submissions are not included in the DAC proceedings and are not considered a DAC publication by ACM or IEEE. But authors should verify submission policies of other conferences and journals. WIP authors are at liberty to submit an extended version of their work to other conferences and to journals without violating any common codes of ethics.
“The DAC WIP Track provides an opportunity for interesting work that is not yet ready for submission for full publication at DAC or other journals. Authors have a great opportunity to network with experts at DAC and to preview their results to the Design Automation community,” said Soha Hassoun, DAC Technical Program Co-chair. “It is especially attractive to researchers and students seeking feedback in smaller groups.”
Full details of the WIP track, including full details for submission and the deadlines is at www.dac.com
The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for electronic design automation (EDA). A diverse worldwide community representing more than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives, and researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, intellectual property (IP) and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM), the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE), and is supported by ACM's Special Interest Group on Design.
