About ACM's Special Interest Group on Design Automation
SIGDA is committed to advancing the skills and knowledge of electronic
design automation professionals and students throughout the world. We
do so in a variety of ways: sponsoring and organizing international workshops,
symposia and conferences; leading the way in capturing archival electronic
design automation publications on CD-ROM; providing travel grants to sponsored
workshops, symposia and conferences; pioneering the maintenance and distribution
of electronic design automation benchmarks; hosting university and government
researchers for software demonstrations at the University Booth at DAC
and ICCAD; publishing the SIGDA Newsletter; maintaining a World Wide Web
access site on Internet; and by initiating the new ACM Transactions on
Design Automation of Electronic Systems. Highlights of our recent activities
- An annual Compendium
CD-ROM which is provided free to our members.
- The ACM Transactions
on the Design Automation of Electronic Systems. The journal provides
comprehensive coverage of innovative research and work concerning
the creation and evaluation of VLSI electronic systems. The journal
emphasizes a computer science and engineering orientation. Topics
include system design, high-level synthesis, logic synthesis, physical
layout, design verification, system reliability, and high-performance
circuits. The journal is actively seeking research papers, tutorial
and survey papers, and short technical notes. The journal is distributed
in hard-copy, electronic, and CD-ROM formats. SIGDA members receive
a significantly subsidized subscription rate.
- SIGDA sponsors or is in cooperation with
major design automation conferences and workshops. We average more
than two such events per
month. A SIGDA member receives a significantly reduced registration
rate for these meetings.
- Our travel grant program provides matching
support for SIGDA members in good standing to attend sponsored meetings.
