If you have used Synopsys technology to overcome difficult design issues and to accelerate your innovation, the SNUG community wants to hear from you!
Share your experience using Synopsys tools and IP at the 2016 Synopsys Users Group (SNUG), France. SNUG brings together Synopsys users, technologists and industry experts for your local technical conference devoted to the challenges of electronic design and verification.
As a published SNUG author you will increase your visibility in the local design and worldwide Synopsys User communities. In addition to the professional recognition, you’ll be eligible for significant cash awards.
The call for papers is open November 24, 2015 – January 22, 2016. The SNUG Technical Committee will review the submitted proposals and notify authors about program acceptance by February 5, 2016.
We have a preliminary list of topics to get you started. But, don’t let that limit your ideas or innovation in your submission.
- Advanced Application Methodologies s (CPU’s [ARM, MIPS, ARC], Graphics/GPUs, Other Processors)
- Advanced Design Methodologies (High Performance, Low Power, Area Optimization, Time to Market)
- Low Power Design, Analysis and Power Reduction Methodologies and Techniques
