How to Affiliate with CEDA
As an IEEE Member, you can now affiliate with the Council on Electronic Design Automation. We encourage you to do it as follows. Go to the Council’s affiliation page.
If you are not logged in, please login by clicking on the upper-right-hand-corner “Sign in” link on that page, next to the small key symbol. You will now see listed a $0 cost for such affiliation for all categories (professional/student/etc.).
Click on the “Add item(s)” rectangular button at the bottom of that list. The affiliation will now be added to your “Cart.”
Click on the Cart link at the very top-right of this page and proceed to “checkout.”
We also encourage all members of our community to also join one of the CEDA sponsoring Societies listed here: Antennas and Propagation Society, Computer Society, Circuits and Systems Society, Electron Devices Society, Microwave Theory and Techniques Society, Solid-State Circuits Society. These can be joined at the same page as above by checking the box “Add a sponsoring society membership” and then selecting the Society you wish to join and “checking out” again.
We hope you will proudly identify yourself as a member of our Community.
The Career Game Cheat Code: IEEE Young Professionals Mario Milicevic 15 September 2016
Distinguished Lecturer Program
EDA has truly changed the world. Without EDA, none of today’s extremely complex chips containing billions of transistors would be possible. Without them, we would not have the Internet, we would not have smart phones, and cars would not have nearly the capabilities they have today. We could not even dare think of driverless cars, our overall industrial productivity would be much lower . . .
EDA keeps evolving and reinventing itself. The discipline has always adapted to new challenges. In recent years, it has branched out from its core to also addressing biochips, security, smart grid – to name just a few fields where EDA has made an impact.
EDA is exciting, as it is strategically located at the intersection of micro- and nano-electronics, computer science, and mathematics. Yet, many people do not appreciate the importance or the excitement and beauty of EDA. Specifically, not enough young and promising students grasp what kind of intellectual fulfillment and broad career perspectives EDA has to offer them.
As a part of the CEDA community, we need to spread the word about the excitement of EDA – especially to university students!
Following DAC 2016 in Austin, CEDA chapters (and universities or persons intending to establish a CEDA chapter) can request some of our best-known luminaries for a CEDA Distinguished Lecture at their location. CEDA will cover the travel costs of the lecturer.
Current Distinguished Lecturers:
Jason Cong, UCLA
Giovanni De Micheli, EPFL
CEDA DL's have proposed exciting topics for their lectures, as shown above. Further topics may be available upon discussion.
The program will expand. We target to announce more Distinguished Lecturers in 2017. CEDA Distinguished Lecturers serve a two-year term.
Administrative issues – how to request a Distinguished Lecture?
- In your request, describe the planned event: location, how many participants expected, what target group, how will the event be publicized?
- You are encouraged to check with the desired Lecturer directly first about his availability before requesting official approval.
Alternatively, you can also request a lecture from the CEDA DL Committee. We will then try to match your request with a Lecturer.
Request early, and be flexible about your dates. Our lecturers are much sought after, and they travel frequently, so they usually appreciate the opportunity to combine a Distinguished Lecture with other travel. This works best if sufficient lead-time is given.
