Design Automation WebiNar (DAWN)

We are thrilled to announce Design Automation WebiNar (DAWN) to drive research momentum and ensure our community remains at the cutting edge. Different from conventional keynote and individual speaker webinars, DAWN is a special-session-style webinar. DAWN is formed by multiple presentations on focused topics by leading experts in our community.

Due to the outbreak of coronavirus (COVID-19), almost all conferences/symposiums in design automation community are canceled/postponed. People are not able to meet each other, learn recent advances, and discuss research ideas. The whole community is quarantined, just like shrouded in darkness made by COVID-19. Thus, it is about time to bring the light from inspired scholars in our community and therefore we are thrilled to announce Design Automation WebiNar (DAWN) to drive research momentum and ensure our community remains at the cutting edge. Different from conventional keynote- and sole-speaker-style webinars, DAWN is a special-session-style webinar. DAWN is formed by multiple presentations on focused topics by leading experts in our community.
