DVCon U.S. 2019 Offers Comprehensive, Compelling Technical Program

LOUISVILLE, Colo., Jan. 23, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The 2019 Design and Verification Conference and Exhibition (DVCon) U.S., now in its 31st year, has much to offer attendees over the course of the four-day program including 39 in-depth technical papers, four tutorials, 25 posters, eight short workshops, two panels and a thought-provoking keynote address. The program is now available online and advance registration is available through January 28. DVCon U.S., sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, will be held February 25 – 28, 2019 at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, California.

“I think attendees will be very impressed by the depth and breadth of our technical program this year,” stated Tom Fitzpatrick, DVCon U.S. 2019 Technical Program Chair.  “In addition to the key technical topics our attendees have come to expect from DVCon, we had many submissions on new topics this year that will be very compelling and beneficial to our audience. We’ll have two paper sessions on Portable Stimulus, as well as sessions on applying “Big Data” to verification, formal verification, hybrid verification environments and many other valuable topics. With two great panels on Deep Learning and RISC-V, there are many intriguing topics for attendees to choose from as they review the detailed program.”

“As in years past, the tutorials and short workshops cover a wide variety of topics,” commented Vanessa Cooper, DVCon U.S. 2019 Tutorial Chair.  “There are sessions on UVM, Formal Verification, Portable Stimulus, Safety, and Machine Learning just to name a few. Conference goers will easily find multiple sessions of interest to attend.”

Program Highlights include:

  • A UVM-focused tutorial on Monday, February 25 titled, “Gain Valuable Insight into the Changes and Features that Are Part of the New IEEE 1800.2 Standard for UVM and How to Make the Most of Them,” presented by Cliff Cummings as part of Accellera Day.
  • A Monday afternoon short workshop from Accellera focused on SystemC, as well as eight sponsored short workshops throughout the week.  The short workshop format is an exciting addition to the program that allows attendees more access to in-depth presentations on a wide variety oftopics from multiple perspectives.
