The technical program for ACM's 46th Design Automation Conference (DAC) will offer 54 research paper sessions, featuring 156 talks selected from 733 submissions from around the globe. "The overwhelming number of submissions from around the world and the enthusiasm of our 20-member industry user committee have been very encouraging," says Andrew B. Kahng, DAC's general chair.

Wild and Crazy Ideas will be among the research paper sessions, which will include special session topics on how to prepare for design at 22 nm, designing circuits in the face of uncertainty, verification of large systems on chip (SOC), bug-tracking in complex designs, and multicore computing. The research paper sessions are arranged in six parallel tracks, and a User Track featuring more than 80 papers and posters on the latest in tool use and methodologies will serve as a seventh.

Senior managers from leading-edge SOC design companies will discuss the costs of scaling, career paths in electronic design automation (EDA), and management of IP, silicon, test, and software supply chains during SOC development as part of the Management Day track.

The industry's hottest issues, including the meaning of "green" for EDA, will be a focus of the eight technical panels, and the six full-day tutorials will cover topics such as post-silicon validation. The Exhibition and Suite area will also feature 19 Pavilion panels on the exhibit floor.

DAC is scheduled for July 26-31, 2009, at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.
