October 27, 2009 —The EDAA/ACM PhD forum is part of the DATE Conference and hosted by ACM SIGDA and the
European Design Automation Association (EDAA). The forum is a great opportunity for PhD students to present their thesis work to a broad audience in the system design and design automation community from both industry and academia. The forum may also help students to establish contacts for entering the job market. In addition, representatives from industry and academia get a glance of state-of-the-art in system design and design automation.
The following two classes of students are eligible:
1. students who have finished their PhD thesis within the last 12 months and
2. students who are close to finish to their thesis work.
- a poster presentation at the PhD Forum
- contacts to professionals from industry and academia
- possibility to distribute flyers summarizing the PhD work
- possibility to apply for travel grants once the receipt of the submission has been acknowledged
- a (free) dinner reception
Send an e-mail to Peter Marwedel with the subject line "PhD Forum 2010", containing:
- full contact address, with affiliation, phone, fax
- a 1-page extended abstract describing the novelties and advantages of the thesis work of not more than 800 words (PDF). The abstract should also include name and affiliation. Figures may be included as far as the 1-page limit is not exceeded.
