The Design Automation Conference Returns with a Technical Program

Keynote Speakers include experts from AMD, Cadence Design Systems, Perceive and the École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne

The Design Automation Conference (DAC) returns for its 59th year with an all-start line up of Keynotes, SKYTalks and TechTalks. Founded in 1964, DAC is the longest-running and largest event focused on research and technology for the design and the design automation of electronic chips to systems. The conference is recognized as the event that attracts the entire system design and development ecosystem from academia, research, government, and industry. The event’s unique importance comes from the combination of a technically strong research track conference along with an exhibition of industry vendors. This year, DAC has added additional training sessions from leading providers such as Doulos, Microsoft Azure, Google and Netapps.

The DAC 2022 technical program had another record year in terms of submissions for both the Research Track and Engineering Track. For this year’s program, the Technical Program Committee reviewed 987 submitted research manuscripts and accepted 223 for presentation and publication, an acceptance rate of 22.7 percent. In addition, 205 Engineering Track submissions were reviewed with 68 accepted for presentation, at an acceptance rate of 33 percent.

This year’s DAC Keynote speakers are:

  • Mark Papermaster, CTO and EVP Technology and Engineering, AMD – Advancing EDA Through the Power of AI and High-performance Computing
  • Anirudh Devgan, PhD, President & CEO, Cadence Design Systems – Computational Software and the Future of Intelligent Electronic System Design
  • Steve Tieg, CEO, Perceive – Machine Learning for Real: Why Principles, Efficiency, and Ubiquity Matter
