Munich, Germany – 6th October, 2020 – The Design and Verification Conference & Exhibition Europe (DVCon Europe), sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, has announced two new keynote speakers and a full technical program. The 2020 conference has been transformed into a virtual event, incorporating a Virtual Reality 3D world for easy networking, and will be held from October 27th to 28th 2020. Registration is now open and a discount applies until October 22nd. In addition, 30 free academic passes will be offered to university students across Europe.
Technical Program and Virtual Experience Rooms
The conference covers, in addition to the four keynote speakers, a strong technical program with 24 papers, 11 posters, 13 tutorials and two panels. The conference highlights are available here: https://dvcon-europe.org/conference-highlights . In parallel to the main program, which uses a regular web-based conferencing system, DVCon Europe aims to introduce a true virtual 3D experience by hosting various Virtual Experience Rooms. This virtual venue will be used for the poster sessions and to enable interaction, collaboration and networking during coffee breaks and to encourage discussions amongst participants outside of the presentation sessions.
Keynotes from Industry Luminaries
The two new keynotes are from Dr Mike Mayberry, Chief Technology Officer at Intel Corporation, who will present: ‘The Future of Compute: Verification in the Era of Heterogeneous Design’, and Moshe Zalcberg, Chief Executive Officer of Veriest Solutions, whose presentation is entitled: ‘I like being surrounded by good ideas: any good ideas we can borrow from the software world?’ These join previously announced keynotes from Victoria (Vicki) Mitchell, VP Systems Engineering at Arm, and Dr. Matthias Traub, Head of Architecture and Technologies at Volkswagen. Vicki Mitchell’s keynote will be entitled ‘The Benefits of Hardware DevOps’, and Dr. Matthias Traub will present ‘Challenges of a Sustainable Innovative Automotive Computing Architecture’.
Joachim Geishauser, General Chair of DVCon Europe, explained that the keynotes match the aim of the conference; to bring hardware and software engineers together. “The keynote speakers will be sharing their insights into the adoption of new methodologies and verification approaches and will discuss how the formerly separated disciplines of hardware and software are being adapted to a new ‘system thinking’.”
