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 experiences using Synopsys tools and IP at the 2014 Synopsys Users Group (SNUG) in Boston. 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 recognition, you’ll be eligible for significant cash awards.
The call for papers is open March 17 – May 2, 2014 The SNUG Technical Committee will review the submitted proposals and notify authors about preliminary program acceptance by May 14, 2014.
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 (ARM, Graphics/GPUs, Processors)
- High Performance, Low Power, Area Optimization Design Methodologies
- Accelerating SoC Verification (Full Chip, Block, Debug Methodologies, Verification IP, Low Power)
- Applying Advanced Technologies (20nm and below, 3DIC, FinFET)
- Maximizing Results with Established Technology Nodes (28nm and above)
- Full Custom Design Flows
- Transistor-level and Analog/Mixed-Signal Verification
