Welcome Message From The General Chair

Welcome Message From The General Chair

I am very pleased to see that DVCon Europe has become a well-established technical conference since its inception in Europe 5 years ago. The overall registration number for DVCon Europe 2017 was 280 participants, of which 126 were first time attendees. The attendees represented more than 79 separate companies and organizations from 22 different countries. The number of industry-oriented paper and tutorial submissions increased, and the event attracted 21 exhibitors.

DVCon Europe is clearly recognized by the design and verification community. It is a highly technical and practical focused conference and exhibition, which is made for engineers by engineers. Technical experts from around the world will come together to share the latest developments and experiences on the application of EDA languages, methodologies and tools for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits.

The fifth edition of DVCon Europe again offers a fully packed 2-day technical program including tutorials, panels, keynotes, presentations, and an attractive exhibition. Both days start with an exciting keynote speech held by a prominent industry speaker. More details on these keynote speakers will follow in due time.

Latest news: The call for papers, tutorials and panels is now open! Please submit your abstract for any of these areas till mid-April. The main topic areas are:

  • System-level design
  • Verification and validation
  • IP Reuse and design automation

This year our aim was to make the submission process more easy and attractive. Please have a look at the submission guidelines for the exact details what is expected at this stage and timeline for your submission.
