DesignCon 2016 opens call for papers

-May 18, 2015

It’s time to sharpen your virtual pencils and submit your ideas for next year’s DesignCon. If your work concerns signal integrity, power integrity, or the interference between the two in high-speed designs, then DesignCon is the conference for you to show your work and get the feedback of your peers.

DEADLINE EXTENDED TO JULY 8 to accommodate late entries.

DesignCon focuses on the technical information that practicing engineers need to do their jobs every day. It continues to be a great place to make connections and think about things in new ways. DesignCon 2016 will take place January 19-21, 2016 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in California. (For those of you who are regular attendees, you’ll note we are one week earlier this time because of the Super Bowl being played in Levi’s Stadium just behind the convention center.) Today’s big news is that the Call for Abstracts for DesignCon 2016 is now open, and you have the opportunity between now and June 30July 8 to submit your proposals for a paper to be delivered on site in January.

Engineers and designers working with signal integrity and power integrity and related topics in high-speed design can respond to the Call for Abstracts for DesignCon 2016 from now until June 30July 8, 2015.

Each abstract is reviewed by members of the DesignCon Technical Program Committee (TPC), a large team of practicing engineers who evaluate each entry on quality, relevance, impact, originality and commercial content (less is best). The deadline for abstracts is June 30th, and you can submit through the electronic portal. The opportunities include a 3-hour tutorial, 40 minute conference paper session, or a 75-minute panel.

"Every time I go I learn something new. At DesignCon, it may change my view on something, and it often energizes me when I go back to work to look at things from a different angle."—Brice Achkir, distinguished engineer and senior engineering director in advanced technology at Cisco Systems and DesignCon TPC member.

The DesignCon 2016 Call for Abstracts includes the following tracks: (see track descriptions and sample topics here )

  1. Optimize Chip-Level Designs for Signal/Power Integrity 

  2. Analog and Mixed-Signal Modeling and Simulation Challenges 

  3. Wireless and Photonic Integration

  4. System Co-Design: Modeling and Simulation
  5. Characterize PCB Materials & Processing
  6. Apply PCB Design Tools
  7. Design Memory and Parallel Interfaces
  8. Optimize High-Speed Serial Design
  9. Detect and Mitigate Jitter, Crosstalk, and Noise
  10. High-Speed Signal Processing for Equalization & Coding
  11. Ensure Power Integrity in Power Distribution Networks

  12. Electromagnetic Compatibility/Mitigating Interference
  13. Apply Test & Measurement Methodology
  14. Signal Integrity with RF/Microwave/EM Analysis Techniques

We encourage presentations that are geared towards advanced (for those well versed in a particular topic or technology) as well as general engineering audiences.  At DesignCon, engineers talk to engineers to find practical solutions to the challenging problems they share. The conference has a strong focus on education and peer-to-peer sharing, creating a place to learn about state-of-the-art design methodologies and technologies. (Oh, and we have lots of laughs too!) Individuals presenting papers at DesignCon will join an elite group offering leading-edge case studies, technology innovations, practical techniques, design tips, and application overviews.

"What makes DesignCon special? The fact that in one place you can find all of the best experts and major vendors focusing on engineering solutions for high-speed designs."-- Istvan Novak senior principal engineer at Oracle & DesignCon TPC member

The deadline to submit your proposal is June 30 July 8, 2015. 

See you in January at DesignCon 2016!
