Quality Designer and IT Education at the 59th Design Automation Conference

Educational sessions for design engineers, IT professionals, and data scientists focused on AI/ML and cloud-based design

The Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier event dedicated to design and automation from chip design to systems, has expanded its educational training program for 2022. The popular Thursday is training day program provided by Doulos, allows DAC participants to attend quality design training sessions on trending and sought-after topics. Complementing the Thursday is Training Day program, a new session, Machine Learning Bootcamp for Data Scientists, from Catalit and three training sessions Tuesday and Wednesday for IT professionals provided by Microsoft Azure, Google and NetApp in the Design-On -Cloud Theater, sponsored by Synopsys.

The 59and DAC will be held at the Moscone West Center in San Francisco, CA from July 10-14, 2022. DAC will co-locate with SEMICON West 2022, which will be held at Moscone North and South venues.

Thursday is Training Day offers DAC attendees the opportunity to learn a variety of popular programming topics from leading training provider Doulos. Participants can choose sessions from two parallel tracks. Many attendees will want to attend both morning and afternoon sessions on the same track, but it is also possible to mix and match sessions from two different tracks or attend a single half-day session .

Thursday is the Training Day sessions provided by Doulos:

In addition to the traditional Thursday is training day, Doulos will host a lunch and learn a tutorial on Python for scientific computing and deep learning Wednesday, July 13, at the DAC between 12:15 p.m. and 1:15 p.m. In this lunch and learn session, you will learn enough to start using Python as a scripting language and you will become familiar enough with Python to start understand the emerging libraries and frameworks used for deep learning. This tutorial will teach you some of the amazing things you can do with Python right out of the box! Pre-registrants also receive a $50.00 discount coupon to attend one of the main Doulos sessions on Thursday, the day of the training. Lunch and learning registration.

Machine Learning Bootcamp for Data Scientists powered by Catalit

This hands-on machine learning bootcamp is a half-day session where students learn how to train machine learning models to solve both regression and classification problems. By the end of participation in both modules, students will have learned how to prepare data and feed it into a machine learning model and learn the most useful concept in machine learning: rapid iteration. Detailed information can be found at: Machine Learning Bootcamp

Module 1: Introduction to machine learning in Python. By the end of this module, students will have learned how to prepare data and feed it into a machine learning model, as well as how to assess the accuracy of the model.

Unit 2: Improved machine learning models. By the end of this module, students will have learned a method for successfully applying machine learning to problems in their work.

Design On Cloud Theater – Cloud-Based Design Training

These free three-hour training sessions provided by Microsoft Azure, Google, and Netapps equip IT professionals with the skills needed to support cloud design. The session will take place at the Design on Cloud Theater in the DAC Exhibit Hall. Attendees can access all three training sessions with the free I LOVE DAC pass, engineering badge, or full conference badge.

Session details, including abstracts, presenter information and room numbers, can be found at: https://www.dac.com/Conference/Hands-On-Training. CAD advanced registration and registration for training sessions are now open.

About DAC

The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for design and automation from chip to system design. A diverse global community representing more than 1,000 organizations attend each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives, researchers and scholars from major universities. More than 125 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronics design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. The conference provides exceptional educational training and networking opportunities for the academic and industrial communities. One of DAC’s strengths is its exposure and following with approximately 170 leading and emerging EDA, intellectual property (IP), AI, cloud and design service providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on Automation Design (ACM SIGDA) and the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineer’s Council on Electronic Design Automation (IEEE CEDA) .
