Unleashing The World’s Technology Potential


A year ago, as I prepared for my opening keynote at Arm TechCon, our biggest annual ecosystem gathering, we were already debating the event’s future focus. Complexity was driving new technology paths as we looked at how we’d engineer a global network of AI, IoT and 5G-driven devices from chip to cloud. We knew that dealing with that complexity would require fundamental changes in our techno... » read more

Tackling Functional Correctness, Safety, Trust And Security


We’re six months into the pandemic, and it looks like in-person conferences are becoming a distant memory and that virtual conferences are now becoming routine. It used to be that traveling to a conference (sometimes long distances) was the only way to be able to attend technical presentations and learn about the latest technologies and methodologies, and that was only if you received permiss... » read more

IP Integration Verification At DVClub Europe


Most people involved in pre-silicon verification of digital designs and electronic design automation (EDA) know the folks at Test and Verification Solutions (T&VS – now acquired by Tessolve to offer a full VLSI and test service). Among other things, they organize the Verification Futures (VF) conference in the UK and the DVClub Europe meetings. These are highly technical events, with plen... » read more

A Virtual DAC Experience


This has been the first virtual conference for me, and I will say I was not sure what to expect. I did moderate a panel for it, but that was pre-recorded because the panelists did not care to be awake and performing live for what would have been 3 a.m. for them. I hosted a virtual happy hour, I conducted many interviews, attended sessions, keynotes and other events, but one thing stands out to ... » read more

Globalization And Regionalization Of Knowledge


Anyone who has clicked on the chat feature on virtual conferences may have noticed the striking mix of nationalities logging in. The explosion of these conferences, as well as video calls, has opened the door for engineers at all levels — from students to industry veterans — to exchange ideas on a global scale. In the past, companies would send a handful of their employees to conferences... » read more

DAC 2020: Virtual And Different


Zhuo Li, group director at Cadence, and Harry Foster, chief scientist at Mentor, a Siemens Business, talk about the changes in content for this year's Design Automation Conference. » read more

Introducing The Simulation World Virtual Conference For Multiphysics Verification


The elimination of all live seminars and conferences has been felt particularly acutely by Ansys. The company’s extraordinary breadth of simulation products across many different physics – including fluidics, mechanical, optical, electrical, materials, and semiconductors – means that dozens of events for many different industrial sectors have been cancelled or postponed this year. In r... » read more

Big Shifts In Tech Conferences


By Ed Sperling and Katherine Derbyshire Identifying central themes in technology conferences, or finding enough latitude where the theme is extremely well defined, is becoming challenging throughout the tech industry. Throughout the semiconductor industry, in particular, many are asking how various organizations will differentiate conferences in the future and who will be the target audience... » read more

Technical Conferences: The Insurmountable Opportunity


As a technology marketeer, I’m always looking for high-leverage events to promote our brand and gain visibility for new products and services. Let’s face it, this is the main benefit for attending a technical conference or a trade show. While the dream might be 40+ leads that are well-qualified and closable in the quarter, the reality is more of a long-game kind of strategy. For years, t... » read more
