It’s time once again for the biggest annual event for EDA and semiconductor IP developers and users—the 52nd annual Design Automation Conference (DAC 2015). This year’s conference takes place June 7-11 in San Francisco, California. Cadence is a Platinum Sponsor and is actively participating in exhibits, technology presentations, papers, panels, and luncheon and breakfast events—and, of course, is offering the world-famous Denali Party.
DAC 2015 will be held at the Moscone Convention Center in downtown San Francisco. The program includes four keynotes, eight SKY (Short Keynote) talks, 5 panels, 18 DAC Pavilion events and panels, 27 research papers, 19 special sessions, 9 Sunday workshops, and 9 Monday tutorials. DAC 2015 features the following tracks: Designer, Security, IP, EDA, Embedded Systems, and Automotive.
Exhibit hours are 10:00am – 7:00pm June 8 (Monday) and June 9 (Tuesday), and 10:00am – 6:00pm June 10 (Wednesday). A free three-day exhibit pass is available as part of the “I Love DAC” program. This pass includes keynote speeches and DAC Pavilion events. The I Love DAC registration is available until May 19.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is a big topic at DAC this year, and this will be reflected in keynotes, SKY talks, paper sessions, DAC Pavilion events, and a Thursday panel discussion. For a detailed look at IoT-related events at DAC 2015, see my April blog post.

Cadence Theater at DAC 2014 in San Francisco, California
New this year is the Cadence “Expert Bar,” where you can meet with experts who will share information about the Cadence product portfolio. This will cover solution segments such as low power, mixed signal, advanced node, verification, IP, and signoff. Topics include the new Innovus Implementation System.
Cadence Technology Sessions provide in-depth presentations and demonstrations of the latest solutions in such areas as signoff, mixed signal, low power, RTL-to-GDSII, custom, functional verification, verification IP, system development and hardware-software integration, high-level synthesis, and IC packaging. Click here for scheduling and registration.
Located at the Cadence booth (#3515), Cadence Theater presentations will show how customers and partners are solving tough problems using Cadence technologies. An agenda will be posted here. Meanwhile, audio recordings and slides from DAC 2014 Cadence Theater presentations are available as described in a 2014 blog post.
Cadence technology experts will share their perspectives at these DAC events and paper sessions. In particular, note the Tuesday “fireside chat” with Cadence CEO Lip-Bu Tan. That will be held at the DAC Pavilion on the exhibit floor. For further information about the following events, including room numbers and presenters, click here.

It’s been five years since Denali became part of Cadence, and the ever-popular Denali Party will light up DAC once again. The party will be held Tuesday night from 8:00pm to 12:30am at Ruby Skye, 420 Mason Street, San Francisco. Disco Inferno will rock the house and take the party through the night. To attend this world-famous event, however, you must do two things: reserve your party ticket here ASAP, and pick up your wristband at the Cadence booth (#3515) before noon on Tuesday, June 9.
