LOUISVILLE, Colo.--()--Beginning next week, the 2013 Design and Verification Conference (DVCon), sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative, will be in full swing. DVCon 2013 will be held February 25 - 28 at the DoubleTree Hotel in San Jose, California.
“When I first came to the conference in 1995 I could see that there was a community…and I see that community still meeting today, coming together to talk about day-to-day problems in verification. The specific problems have changed, but the spirit is still the same.”
Conversation Central, an online industry video program & podcast, featured DVCon 2013’s General Chair, Stan Krolikoski, Ph.D., and Technical Program Chair, Ambar Sarkar, Ph.D., last week to discuss the evolution of DVCon over the last 25 years and what makes it so special to attendees.

Excerpts from the interview on Conversation Central:
“The focus of DVCon has become the users,” stated Krolikoski. “The actual everyday Joe and Jane engineer who are designing and verifying - what do they need to get their job done? The key is imparting knowledge. I want the newbie who comes, who is just starting out in design and verification, to learn a lot. And I also want someone like Ambar to come around and get just one nugget out of the conference that makes him say, ‘I could use that at work.’”
Sarkar added, “When I first came to the conference in 1995 I could see that there was a community…and I see that community still meeting today, coming together to talk about day-to-day problems in verification. The specific problems have changed, but the spirit is still the same.” To learn more about the 2013 technical program, please visit an introduction from Sarkar at http://dvcon.org/2013_technical_program_0.
Krolikoski also discussed the highlights of DVCon during an interview for Chip Estimate TV. To view the interview, please visit http://youtu.be/tpKqX_7axxA.

A Town Hall luncheon on Monday will also give attendees an opportunity to discuss their most important questions about standards in an open format with Accellera representatives.
