The Design Automation Conference Secures a Five-Year Conference Location at San Francisco’s Moscone Center

The world’s premier event devoted to the design and design automation of electronic chips to systems returns to the Bay Area starting June 2020 and beyond

LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — December 14, 2018 — Tapping into a resurgent interest in electronic design automation and the proximity to Silicon Valley, sponsors of the Design Automation Conference (DAC) announced they will hold the annual event, now in its 56th year, in San Francisco for five consecutive years, starting in 2020.

DAC’s sponsors – the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Design Automation (ACM SIGDA), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer’s Council on Electronic Design Automation (IEEE CEDA) – secured the following dates at San Francisco’s Moscone Center to hold their annual event.

  • DAC 2020, June 17 – 26 – North and South Hall
  • DAC 2021, June 23 – July 2 – West Hall
  • DAC 2022, June 15 – 24 – North and South Hall
  • DAC 2023, June 21 – 30 – North and South Hall
  • DAC 2024, June 19 – 27 – West Hall

After 55 years, DAC continues to be the world’s premier event devoted to the design and design automation of electronic chips to systems, where attendees learn today and create tomorrow. A rise in attendance and participation in the 2018 DAC in San Francisco spurred the sponsors to return to the city after the 2019 event that will be held in Las Vegas, June 2-6. More than 6,000 people attended and more than 170 companies exhibited at DAC 2018 held at Moscone West Center.

DAC is the only event for top-notch researchers to present their cutting-edge discoveries, the platform for leading field engineers to share their experiences in using EDA (electronic design automation) tools to tame the ever-growing circuit and system design monsters, and the largest exhibition of EDA tools, software, IP cores, and other related products and services. DAC has been and will continue to be the must-attend event for the design and design automation community.

"We attend DAC to build our knowledge of what is possible so that we can continue to innovate and stay at the leading edge of design,” stated Chris Collins, senior vice president, products & technology enablement at NXP. “DAC has been and always will be a place we look to for such guidance. It is a place where we can meet with pioneers, innovators, and solutions providers to understand the technology and provide feedback on the technology that will drive our next products.”

The abstract submission deadline for DAC 2019 technical papers closed November 20, 2018, with a record 1049 abstracts received and 819 accepted papers for review. The number of accepted papers for review for DAC 2019 has surpassed the last five years of accepted for review papers by approximately 19%. Among the hot topics for 2019 are submissions in areas such as machine learning and artificial intelligence architectures, which increased by 61%.

“DAC continues to evolve to satisfy the needs of our industry. It’s always been the premier place for presenting EDA research and showcasing all vendors under one roof,” said John Busco, director, logic design implementation at NVIDIA. “In recent years, it’s added tracks to satisfy the interests of working designers and IP consumers. DAC brings together academia, commercial EDA, and electronic system designers—a true cross-section of semiconductor design. As technology progresses, and both our challenges and opportunities multiply, DAC offers an ideal forum to explore, exchange ideas, and innovate.”

The call for contributions for the 56th DAC in Las Vegas is now open for the Designer Track and IP Track. The submission deadline is January 15, 2019. For more information visit:

About DAC

The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for electronic design automation (EDA) and silicon solutions. A diverse worldwide community representing more than 1,000 organizations attends each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives to researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area with approximately 175 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, intellectual property (IP) and design services providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Design Automation (ACM SIGDA), and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer’s Council on Electronic Design Automation (IEEE CEDA).

Design Automation Conference acknowledges trademarks or registered trademarks of other organizations for their respective products and services.
