Design Automation Conference Workshops

The Design Automation Conference (DAC) will feature nine in-depth workshops on a variety of timely and practical topics. The event include workshops on design for manufacturing (DFM), system-level design topics, and the emerging bio-design automation area. A new workshop this year addresses the needs of young faculty and others who are considering a career in academia. The 2009 DAC will take July 26 – 31 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
