2013 Design and Verification Conference Issues Call for Papers

Accellera Systems Initiative has issued a call for papers for the 2013 Design and Verification Conference. The deadline to submit an extended abstract (800 to 1,000 words) is August 21st. DVCon is a conference for the application of languages, tools and methodologies for the design and verification of electron systems and integrated circuits. DVCon 2013 will take place February 25-28, 2012 at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, California.

DVCon submissions should include:

  • A title (authors are encouraged to be creative)
  • Name, affiliation, phone number and email addresses for all authors
  • An introduction that specifies the context and motivation of the submission
  • A summary of the specific contributions of the authors work
  • A summary that highlights results
  • To evaluate the author’s contribution, some results must be specified
  • References, if appropriate
  • The extended abstract can be at most two pages (800 to 1,000 words)
  • Abstract can be formatted in a single or double column
