DVCon Europe 2018 Call for Panels
DVCon Europe has become established as the premier design and verification conference in Europe, since its inception four years ago. The conference provides a platform for us as engineers to exchange and learn from technical experiences with other users, universities and EDA vendors. DVCon Europe 2018 will take place in Munich on October 24-25, and the Call-for-Panels is now open until April 18, 2018.
This call for panels solicits contributions for high quality panels that are technical and reflect real life experiences in using EDA languages, standards, methodologies and tools. Industry applications of interest are (but not limited to) automotive, mobile communication, aerospace, healthcare, chip-cards, consumer and power electronics. Of special interest are topics such as safety and security in system-level design, verification and/or validation.
DVCon Europe is planning to host two highly focused technical panel discussions. DVCon Europe is looking for panels that are lively, controversial, and provoke discussion on a specific topic of interest to the community. Panel sessions should not consist of paper presentations, but should have plenty of discussion engaging the audience. Panels are scheduled for one hour on October 24 or 25. DVCon Europe will select which day the panels will be presented. Please make sure that moderator and panelists are available on the day before the panel for a final sync up on the panel.
Example panels from previous DVCon events have included “Security in the Automotive Value Chain”, “Intelligent Automation: How to Decide What to and What not to Automate”, and “Help! System Coverage is a Big Data Problem”.
DVCon Europe will attempt to work with the original organizer in refining the panel, but if this is not successful, another organizer may be appointed. If multiple panel suggestions are submitted with similar topics, the committee may choose to accept one over the others, to merge the proposed panels, or to reject all of them.
