Welcome Message From The General Chair
A warm welcome to DVCon Europe 2019!
In the past five years, DVCon Europe has become a well-established conference: made by users for users, where experts meet, and where new business relationships and friendships start. In those five years, the European design and verification network has grown, and the DVCon Europe family has been built. We are proud that we have achieved this, together with you!
The challenge of today’s integrated embedded systems go far beyond development of hardware alone. Embedded software has become a key ingredient in many applications. However, finding the right trade-off between hardware and software components remains the ultimate challenge. This means that software and hardware engineers need to work closely together, understanding both disciplines.
DVCon Europe, together with Accellera’s co-located SystemC Evolution Day, offers you a unique opportunity to escape from your daily work environment and learn from your peers in the industry. To address the multi-disciplinary challenges our industry is facing, DVCon Europe will broaden its scope in the call for papers and tutorials, by including embedded software. As chair of DVCon Europe 2019, I encourage embedded software developers to come to the conference to share their challenges and get to see what the hardware side is working on. DVCon Europe and the Accellera SystemC Evolution Day will offer a discussion forum for the engineering community to further enrich the SystemC eco-system.
For 2019, our ambition remains unchanged: to offer a compelling event where technical experts active in system-level design and verification can interact, share best practices, and learn the latest design and verification methodologies, languages and standards.
Mark your calendar: DVCon Europe 2019 takes place from October 29 to 30 in Munich Germany, followed by the SystemC Evolution Day on October 31, 2019. The call for papers, tutorials and panels is planned for early February 2019.
The DVCon Europe steering committee and Accellera wish you a warm welcome and an enjoyable DVCon Europe 2019!
