GENERAL CHAIR’S WELCOME Finally, this all star lineup concludes on Thursday with UT-Austin researcher Peter Stone explaining how machine learning has helped him construct the world’s top soccer robot team.

Dear Colleagues, I am delighted to welcome you to Austin, Texas, home of the 53rd Design Automation Conference. Austin also happens to be my home for the past 20 years. In that time, I have watched the city, known to many as Silicon Hills, grow into a technology powerhouse. Austin is famous for being weird, but with the arrival of the 53rd Design Automation Conference, it is now nerdy as well. Over the past year we have introduced the “Keep Austin Nerdy” theme for the 53rd DAC and hope to continue this trend for years to come.

New at DAC this year will be Research Grove and the Grove Lounge, where I invite those of you attending the technical sessions to stop by the Grove to sit and relax after a day of sessions. The “Grove” enables those attending the research conference program a place to get some refreshments and network with their colleagues. As we all know, much of the action and excitement happens on the exhibition floor. This year, DAC is pleased to host over 175 exhibitors who are an integral part of the conference ecosystem. In addition to the vendors the DAC exhibition floor offers the following for all attendees to enjoy:

Monday evening brings a new addition to the conference: the first DAC Silicon/Technology Art Show. The Art Show will highlight the beauty of electronic design and algorithms and showcase the works of companies and individuals that contribute to our industry. I encourage you to attend the Art Show/evening reception on Monday night starting at 6:00pm.

• World of IoT Exhibit featuring the IP Pavilion, the Embedded Pavilion and the Maker’s Market • NXP IoT truck, showcasing devices that the industry enables • NXP US Finals Racecar Challenge

With the help of hundreds of volunteers, the DAC executive committee has assembled a fantastic technical program, featuring sessions on hardware and software security, automotive, IoT, design, EDA algorithms, IP, and embedded software and systems.

• Food Trucks featuring local cuisine • The DAC Pavilion which each day includes a SKY Talk, an Austin Angle Talk, an unscripted interview with an EDA CEO, an industry analyst review and a teardown. While the show floor closes on Wednesday afternoon, stick around on Thursday for revamped training day. As in previous years, Duolos brings forth first class designer training. This year we are also offering training in advanced C++ and executive management, sponsored by the McCombs School of Business.

I am especially proud of the direction the Design/IP Track has taken this year with over 27 sessions consisting of over 127 presentations taking place over three days. This is more than double the content that this track had three years ago, the last time DAC was in Austin. This Design/IP Track is THE place for the design community to connect with each other and share their best practices. On Monday-Wednesday, the Design/IP Track concludes at 5:00 each day with a happy hour/poster session on the show floor.

With so much going on at the show, how do you keep track of all the sessions and activities at DAC? I encourage you to download the mobile app! It is the best way I can recommend you manage your schedule and activities at the show plus by playing the DAC Attack app game you can win cool prizes.
