Call for Papers is Now Closed

The SNUG India Call for Papers is now closed. Please email the team for further assistance.

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 2019 Synopsys Users Group (SNUG) in India (NCR – National Capital Region, Noida). 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 will be eligible for significant cash awards (please check your company’s gift acceptance policy).

The call for papers is closed. The SNUG Technical Committee will review the submitted proposals and notify authors about abstract acceptance by March 8, 2019.
