Fostering Design and Automation of
Electronic and Embedded Systems

Distinguished Speaker Series

The IEEE Council on EDA organizes a Distinguished Speaker Series. Each lecture features the winners of the Best Paper Awards of the Design Automation Conference (DAC), the International Conference on Computer Aided Design (ICCAD), and the IEEE Transactions on Computer Aided Design (TCAD), or some other key topic relevant for our community.The presenters are invited to give an in-depth presentation of their work, going beyond the published paper and conference talk. Each lecture either takes place in front of a live audience of experts or is captured in a studio setting. The video taped lectures are posted on this website.
