A Message to the SNUG Community

March 13, 2020

The health and safety of the SNUG ecosystem – including users, partners and our employees – are a top priority of Synopsys. In light of the growing concerns around the Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), Synopsys has made the difficult decision to cancel the Synopsys Users Group (SNUG) Europe event this year scheduled for May 18-19, 2020 at the Hilton Munich Airport, Germany.

We are grateful for the continuing support of the SNUG community, as we recognize it is the support of this community that makes these events possible.

This is an evolving situation, and we felt it was important to share the decision as quickly as possible. Meanwhile, we are exploring other ways to engage with the SNUG community – we will communicate our plans in the near future.

Again, thank you for your support. If you have any questions, please reach out to us at
