1 min read

The Design and Verification Conference & Exhibition Europe (DVCon Europe) has announced two extra keynotes, an extensive technical programme and a more user-friendly, 3D virtual reality environment, fully integrated with the regular web-based conferencing system.

The event, sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, runs across the 26th and 27th October, with the SystemC Evolution Day on the 28th.

Two additional speakers have been announced: Dr Petra Färm, Product Thinker and Talk Show Host at Tolpagorni Product Management, who will present: ‘Speed Layers: Managing the exponential change of technology’, and Andreas Riexinger, Product Manager Automated Driving at Robert Bosch, whose presentation is entitled, ‘The Mobility of the Future is Software Defined – can open technologies help?’

These two speakers will be joining previously announced keynotes from Rashid Attar, VP, Engineering, Qualcomm Technologies, and Satish Sundaresan, Managing Director, Elektrobit India. Attar’s keynote is entitled ‘The Future of Hardware Innovations for AI Systems’, while Sundaresan will present ‘Take a Leap: Virtualization in Future Development’.

This year’s virtual reality environment is a conferencing venue in the heart of Munich, with one large meeting space and quiet side areas for discussion. The main stage is set up for panels which will be run within the virtual space, and all presenters at the conference will be available in the virtual space after their papers, panels or plenaries.

This year avatars will be more sophisticated. For example, with some of the pre-built avatars it is now possible for attendees to choose to ’share’ their cameras, allowing the attendee’s ‘live’ face to appear as part of their avatar.

The conference covers, in addition to the four keynote speakers, an extensive technical programme with 24 papers, 13 tutorials, 13 poster presentations and two panels.

Sumit Jha, General Chair of DVCon Europe, explained, “Last year’s Virtual Experience Rooms were well received and we hope that the revamped environment will be even more engaging, with greater opportunities for discussion and interaction between participants. Our four keynotes together with our extensive technical program meet the main aim of the conference: to bring hardware and software engineers together.”
