The third edition of DVCon Europe is ahead of us: The European Design and Verification community will get together in Munich on October 19 and 20, to share their experiences and best practices in system-level design, modeling, verification, design automation, and more. Did you already register for DVCon Europe 2016? This industry focused conference is a must-go-to event, due to its unique blend of characteristics:

United: DVCon Europe has been initiated by the Accellera Systems Initiative, an independent non-profit organization, actively developing and deploying EDA and IP design and verification standards for use by the worldwide electronics industry. The Accellera member companies are working closely together to develop these standards, but they also join forces to promote and share the success stories of the industrial application and acceptance of these standards. DVCon Europe brings together industry experts, EDA tooling, IP and service providers, and training institutes, which all contribute to the technical program. Visiting DVCon Europe gives you the opportunity to interact with all these partners in the EDA eco-system and grow your personal network!

Universal: Many users and companies at DVCon Europe present their best practices on design and verification methodologies, using standardized languages such as SystemC, SystemVerilog, UVM, IP-XACT, and more. These languages and standards are universally applicable in various application domains such as mobile, aerospace, communication, automotive, etc. The practical knowledge and experiences shared by the users are not bound to these application domains, so everyone will benefit from better understanding the do’s and don’ts of these standards and languages. Interested how the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) will become truly universal? Visit DVCon Europe to connect to these developments!

Unique: The DVCon Europe program certainly reflects the strong interest and competence areas of the users and companies active in Europe: system-level design and modeling, virtual prototyping, analog/mixed-signal design and verification, design automation, IP reuse and functional safety for automotive. For example, DVCon Europe brings you the latest developments in the SystemC space. But presenters and attendees of DVCon Europe come from all over this world, making it a true international conference with global coverage! Also this year, DVCon Europe is organized in the vibrant city Munich in Germany, in the unique and historic state Bavaria. We highly recommend you to also visit the beautiful Munich area and enjoy the Bavarian culture!

Most importantly, DVCon Europe is made ‘4U’. Looking forward to meet you at DVCon Europe!
