Abstract Submission Deadline EXTENDED to September 8th!

The Design & Verification Conference & Exhibition is the premier conference on the application of languages, tools, methodologies and standards for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits. The focus of this highly technical conference is on the practical aspects of these technologies and their use in leading-edge projects to encourage attendees to adopt similar techniques to improve their own design and verification flows. This year the conference will be completely virtual.

In addition to the specific topic areas suggested below, submissions may incorporate:

  • Usage of Electronic Design Automation (EDA) tools such as simulation, emulation, formal verification, virtual prototyping and/or FPGA prototyping
  • FPGA-based designs
  • Usage of specialized design and verification languages such as SystemVerilog, SystemC, and e
  • Assertions in SVA or PSL
  • The use of general purpose and scripting languages such as C, C++,Perl, Python, Tcl and others
  • Applications of the Accellera Portable Stimulus Standard
  • Applications of design patterns or other innovative language techniques
  • The use of AMS languages
  • Internet of Things applications

Accepted authors will be invited and agree to do the following:

  • Submit a draft paper between October 26 and November 15 for review.
  • Review and incorporate feedback from TPC, to be provided by November 20.
  • Submit a final paper and copyright form by December 14.
  • Submit a recorded oral or poster presentation for presentation at the virtual conference by February 9.
