ICCAD Previews Technical Program

The International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD), the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) industry's top technical conference, is now previewing its Technical Program, including leading keynote speakers, tutorials and panels. The Conference will be held November 5-9 at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, California.

This year's ICCAD theme focuses on current hot topics such as power, variability, and system design, but also expands its focus to include post-CMOS emerging technologies such as carbon nanotubes, molecular transistors, spin-based and single electron devices, DNA-based computing, electro-chemical components, MEMS, and the integration in sensor systems and biochips. Over 750 attendees are expected to attend this year's conference.

ICCAD 2006 will feature industry-leading keynote addresses from Phil Hester, Chief Technology Officer of AMD, entitled "An Industry in Transition: Opportunities and Challenges in Next-Generation Microprocessor Design", and Leon Stok, Director of EDA at IBM, entitled "Innovation in Electronic Design Automation".

The technical program begins on Sunday, November 5, with a workshop on the convergence between technology and design and concludes on Thursday, November 9, with six half-day tutorials. Two panels and seven embedded tutorials are also featured. A system design issues theme includes system power and performance optimization, architecture-level thermal and variability issues, and energy minimization in real-time embedded systems, as well as two embedded tutorials, "Challenges in Designing and Mapping Algorithms to Multi-Core Systems" and "The Use of UML Versus SystemC in the Design of Systems".
