Electronic Design Automation School

EDAS 2020 (Virtual)

December 7 - 11, 2020

The first Electronic Design Automation School (EDAS2020) is an event dedicated to students and researchers in Brazil and South America.

 

The EDAS aims to offer students a group of talks on key topics of electronic design automation for integrated circuits (IC) in modern and upcoming technologies, including current and future challenges faced by the industry and academia for implementing complex circuits and systems.

The goal is to promote discussions on hot topics and cover fundamental algorithms, computational methods, and artificial intelligence (AI) techniques in the area so that the attendees could leverage their comprehension and capabilities while attracting new students and researchers to the right problems.

Our Goals Are...

To bring together the local community, fostering local interactions and stimulating cooperation among students, researchers, and professionals in the region;

To bring the local community closer to leading researchers and professionals in their field of knowledge;

To stimulate students to learn, research, and eventually follow a career in the field of EDA
