Welcome Message from the General Chair

Welcome Message from the General Chair

I am very pleased to welcome you all to the 1st edition of the Design and Verification Conference and Exhibition China planned for 19, April 2017 at the Parkyard Hotel, Shanghai. 

First and foremost, thanks to Accellera, all DVCon China committee members, and worldwide community friends for their relentless work and passionate support to make this great event happen in China.

This is a golden era for the China semiconductor industry. Semiconductor companies are booming around the country. The timing is ideal to bring DVCon to Shanghai, where so many local semiconductor companies and MNC converge. DVCon China sets the stage for the alliance of the China semiconductor industry, academia and international standards development organizations.

Ideas, networking, technical discussions, learning opportunities, and exciting exhibits of new products and services. This is what DVCon China will offer to attendees. Many hot areas of ASIC design and verification like UVM, Low Power, IP Reuse, Formal, Mixed-Signal, System Design and Debug Strategies will be distributed throughout the whole conference with lectures, discussions, presentations and demos.

Nothing beats learning from the industry practitioners. DVCon China is ready to help you address the work challenges. The exciting news is that the 1 day packed agenda covers keynotes from industry luminaries, tutorials from the gurus, panel discussions with experts, papers and posters from the fraternity, as well as an exhibit floor with demonstrations of new products and technologies. DVCon China also has a very strong steering committee which consists of more than 20 design and verification leading experts from diverse and well-known ASIC design companies. They work together to guarantee a high-quality DVCon China.

China’s famous universities like Tsinghua and Fudan are also active members of the DVCon China steering and program committees. College teachers and students can enjoy rich lectures to broaden research areas, collect knowledge of the first-hand industry development, and even talk to industry leaders peer to peer. I believe the China academia of the semiconductor field will benefit much from DVCon China.

I am looking forward to meeting you and joining hands to connect, contribute and celebrate at DVCon China 2017!
