Design Automation Conference Professional Development Fund to Award More Than $80,000 This Year

LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — July 24, 2009 The Design Automation Conference (DAC) announced that for the 16th year, DAC, along with its sponsors, is awarding more than $80,000 in development funds to students and professionals in the EDA field. More than $2.3 million have been awarded since the inception of the Professional Development Fund. The 46th DAC will be held July 26 – 31 at the Moscone Center in San Francisco.

The DAC Professional Development Fund supports a range of programs, including the A. Richard Newton Graduate Scholarships; the P.O. Pistilli Advancement in Computer Science and Electrical Engineering Program; the Young Student Support Program; the University Booth Program; and several workshops that take place during DAC, such as the Workshop for Women in Design Automation (WWINDA) and the Design Automation Summer School (DASS). The fund also supports the Alumni Scholarship program, which offers DAC alumni who are between jobs an opportunity to attend DAC for professional skills maintenance and development.

“DAC plays a critical role in supporting education, both for students preparing to enter the EDA field and for professionals who wish to continue growing their skills and knowledge,” said Limor Fix, 46th DAC Past Chair, who oversees the DAC Professional Development Fund. “We are very pleased to announce this strong level of support this year, especially given the current economic environment.”
