China Developer Conference | September 8, 2021

Author's Kit Info

Reflecting Synopsys' commitment to technical excellence, all conference papers are peer reviewed by the China Developer Conference Team. If your proposal is accepted, a China Developer Conference Team member will work with you to help you create and deliver an exceptional paper and conference presentation.

Acceptance Criteria

The China Developer Conference Team has implemented a two-step acceptance process: 

  1. Preliminary paper acceptance is based on the initial submission proposal.
  2. Final paper acceptance and the assignment of presentation spots at the conference are determined after the paper is complete, reviewed and approved by the China Developer Conference Team. 
The China Developer Conference Team reviews and accepts submissions based on criteria that include:

 

  • Technical Relevance: Is the topic meaningful to other designers?
  • Technical Applicability: Is the topic general enough to be helpful to other designers?
  • Technical Completeness: Is the topic explored completely? Does it provide enough detail on the approach taken to analyze and address the challenge?
  • Are the problems and solutions well described? Review lessons learned along the way (what was expected/unexpected, what went well/not so well).

  • Is the conclusion well substantiated? Why is your solution a good one? What can other designers take away and use in their work?
  • What are some ongoing areas of development or next steps that you (or a peer) could pursue?
  • General Readability: Is the presentation well organized? Is the presentation grammatically correct and spelled correctly.
  • Effective Summary of your effort and results.

Presenting at the China Developer Conference

Your presentation should be a ‘discussion’ rather than a ‘reading’ of your technical paper. While you should cover the same key points in both your paper and session presentation, attendees will be most interested in hearing you describe your techniques and approach and support your conclusions.

Most presentations are 30-40 minutes in length, including 5-10 minutes for Q&A. Your China Developer Conference team will communicate specific details and presentation times after final acceptances are made.
