We will be back tomorrow with our preview of the verification sessions at DAC 2013, but one late addition to the program is four 15-minute pre-keynotes from the CEOs at leading vendors Cadence Design Systems, Jasper Design Automation, Mentor Graphics and Synopsys.
First up is Mentor’s Wally Rhines, who’ll precede the Monday, June 3rd morning keynote (Freescale Semiconductor’s Gregg Lowe) at 9.15am.
Next is Cadence’s Lip-Bu Tan. He will speak before the Monday, June 3rd afternoon keynote (National Instruments’ James Truchard) at 4.00pm.
Synopsys’ Aart de Geus will speak before the Tuesday, June 4th morning keynote (Samsung’s Stephen Woo) at 9.15am.
Finally, Jasper’s Kathryn Kranen will offer her views before the Thursday, June 6th morning keynote (Professor Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli) at 11.00am.
The speeches mark DAC’s 50th anniversary and will give the four leading industry lights the chance to outline – albeit briefly – their visions for what will define the next half-century in technology and design. All will take place in Ballroom ABC at the Austin Convention Center.
It ain’t quite the CEO Panel so popular at DACs past. Though that has, for many, found a perfectly adequate replacement in John Cooley’s ‘Troublemakers’ session. That carving of raw meat has this year also been scheduled on Monday, June 3rd at 3.00pm, this time in Ballroom C.
John’s DAC 2013 line up includes Oasys Design System’s Joe Costello, IC Manage’s Dean Drako, Atrenta’s Mike Gianfagna, and Mentor’s Joe Sawicki as well as Jim Hogan and Gary Smith.
