Due to the outbreak of corona virus (COVID-19), almost all conferences/symposiums in design automation community are cancelled/postponed. People are not able to meet each other, learn recent advances, and discuss research ideas. The whole community is quarantined, just like shrouded in darkness made by COVID-19. Thus, it is about time to bring the light from inspired scholars in our community and therefore we are thrilled to announce Design Automation WebiNar (DAWN) to drive research momentum and ensure our community remains at the cutting edge. Different from conventional keynote- and sole-speaker-style webinars, DAWN is a special-session-style webinar. DAWN is formed by multiple presentations on focused topic by leading experts in our community.
The first DAWN will be on the topic of Machine Learning for EDA. It will consist of five excellent talks followed by Q&A with the panelists. Finally, we are thrilled to offer you the opportunity to attend DAWN and encourage your participation on May 7.
