ACM's 46th Design Automation Conference (DAC) will give industry professionals an opportunity to learn more about front- and back-end design issues and to participate in special-interest workshops. "This year's workshop lineup will give attendees new insights and unforeseen knowledge," says Diana Marculescu, 46th DAC coordinator for workshops and colocated events. "Perhaps even more important, workshop participants will benefit from the opportunity for networking with their industry peers, which is one of the special benefits of DAC."

Workshops on front-end tools and methodologies include "MPSoC: Current Trends and the Future," which will have speakers covering topics in design tools, methodologies, and programming of Multiprocessor Systems-on-Chip (MPSoCs). The Virtual Platform Workshop will complement the new DAC User Track by focusing on the latest SoC design challenges. Another workshop, "Marketing of Technology: the Last Critical Step," will help companies in their effort to launch products, and bio-design automation will be the topic of the workshop on emerging applications.

Meanwhile, career advice will be the theme of the "Young Faculty Workshop" and the 10th annual "Workshop for Women in Design Automation." The 46th DAC takes place July 26-31, 2009, in San Francisco.
