If you're familiar with the popular, cutting-edge TED Talks lecture series, then I would call the Electronic Design Process Symposium (EDPS) the "TED Talks" of EDA. Now in its 20th year, this IEEE-sponsored workshop brings together the thinkers, movers and shakers of IC and systems design to discuss the future of electronic design processes and CAD methodologies.
This year EDPS will be held April 18-19 at the Monterey Beach Hotel in Monterey, California, where crashing surf is directly outside - but that won't distract your attention from the presentations. Prominent topics at the event include system-level design, collaboration in the cloud, 3D-ICs, and FinFET design challenges. This year Cadence is a Gold Sponsor of EDPS, along with Xilinx and NetApp.
