SIGDA Design Automation Summer School

The Design Automation Summer School (DASS) offers graduate students the opportunity to participate in a two day intensive course on selected areas of research and development in design automation (DA). Each topic of instruction in this course is covered by a distinguished speaker who defines the topic, describes recent accomplishments in considerable detail, and outlines upcoming challenges. Interactive discussions and follow-up activities among the participants round off an intensive, yet comprehensive activity geared towards graduate students in DA.

The school is intended to broaden and complement a limited and often highly focused curriculum in DA that is currently offered at universities. The DASS is co-sponsored by the NSF, ACM SIGDA, and DAC Professional Development fund . The goals of the DASS dovetail well into the sponsors' primary objectives of investing in the education of the next generation of engineers and computer scientists and achieving broadened participation from underrepresented populations.
