DVCon U.S. 2018 Adds New Topics to Technical Program

MMW learned today that the 2018 Design and Verification Conference and Exhibition U.S. (DVCon U.S.) will offer attendees an intense, information-packed conference with 39 papers, 8 tutorials, 33 posters, 4 short workshops and 2 panels to choose from over the course of the four-day program.

Sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, DVCon U.S. will be held February 26-March 1, 2018 at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, California.

“I am very proud of the program we have put together for our attendees at DVCon this year,” stated Tom Fitzpatrick, DVCon U.S. 2018 Technical Program Chair. “It is the must-attend conference for design and verification engineers because it continues to grow and evolve with the needs of industry. This year we’ve added some new vertical topic areas that I think attendees will find particularly intriguing and useful. Safety critical verification is a theme that attendees will see addressed throughout the conference, and the tutorials on Thursday afternoon are focused primarily on issues surrounding automotive safety and compliance. There is also a paper that will discuss UVM-based Verification of a RISC-V Processor Core. There is something for everyone at DVCon and our team of reviewers has done an excellent job of pulling the best for the program from an outstanding group of proposals,” Fitzpatrick concluded.
