DASS at DAC 2017

The Design Automation Summer School (DASS) is a one-day intensive course on research and development in design automation (DA). Each topic in this course will be covered by a distinguished speaker who will define the topic, describe recent accomplishments, and indicate remaining challenges. Interactive discussions and follow-up activities among the participants will be used to reinforce and expand upon the lessons. This program is intended to introduce and outline emerging challenges, and to foster creative thinking in the next generation of EDA engineers. Simultaneously, they also help the students hone their problem solving, programming, and teamwork skills, in addition to fostering long-term collégial relationships. The 2017 SIGDA Design Automation Summer School is co-hosted by A. Richard Newton Young Fellowship Program at ACM/IEEE Design Automation Conference (DAC). DASS program will be co-hosted by DAC RNYS program and will be held on Sunday June 18, 2017 at Austin Convention Center, from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. in Austin, TX. Richard Newton Young Student Fellowship Welcome breakfast is held at the same room from 7:30 am to 8:30 am. All the students receiving the fellowship (excluding the mentors) are required to attend DASS event.
The DASS event complements other educational and professional development activities in design automation including outreach projects such as the SIGDA University Booth, the CADathlon, and the Design Automation Conference (DAC) Ph.D. forum that have met with tremendous success over the past decade. Note that there is no separate call for participation for DASS. Attending DASS is mandatory for all the students receiving the Richard Newton Young Fellowship. The DASS final program will be available in late April 2017.
