Electronic Design Process Symposium (EDPS)
Cyber Security Workshop
April 21-22, 2016, Monterey Tides Hotel, Monterey California
The Electronic Design Processes (EDP) 2016 Workshop and Symposium, in its 23rd
year, fostered the free exchange of ideas among the top
thinkers, movers, and shakers who focus on how chips and systems are
designed in the electronics industry. It provided a forum for
this cross-section of the design community to discuss
state-of-the-art improvements to electronics design processes and
CAD methodologies, rather than on the functions of the individual
The EDPS was founded by Bill McCallah in 1978 as key activity of the Design Automation Technical Committee (DATC). The annual EDPS Workshop and Symposium takes place each year in Monterey, California, and emphasizes both the here and now and the future.
The EDPS 2016 Symposium was dedicated to Gary Smith, who was one of our most active members and contributors, who we lost in July, 2015. See especially this EDACafe blog on his life and times by Peggy Aycinena:
Gary Smith life and times
Attendees of this elite workshop have met each year since 1993. It has attracted some of the most far-seeing people in the electronics industry and academia as speakers. If you need to know where the industry is and where it's going with respect to the design and development, and especially methodologies and technology of design, you should consider attending this year.
Call for Papers:
Each year the Symposium solicits papers and proposals for special/panel sessions that would shed light on the methodologies used for real current and future chip and system designs.
