A Message to the SNUG Community

March 1, 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) Silicon Valley event this year scheduled for March 18-19, 2020 at the Santa Clara Convention Center. No decisions have been made yet on other SNUG or other Synopsys events.

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 ways to share content planned for the event.

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