University Booth

 

SIGDA University Booth at DAC

The SIGDA/DAC "UBooth" has been providing an opportunity for the university community to demonstrate EDA tools, design projects, and instructional materials at the Design Automation Conference since 1987. The University Booth also provides space for the presentation of EDA vendor literature and programs of interest to the university community. The University Booth provides demonstration space, displays, and a wireless Internet connection for participating universities. The SIGDA/DAC University Booth also provides modest travel grants to the participating students to cover transportation and lodging expenses.
