Tutorial Proposals

Please submit tutorial proposals by email to the Tutorial Co-Chairs.

The 2-page tutorial proposal should contain the following information:

1. Title and abstract:
Propose a title and an abstract that allows conference attendees to quickly and accurately understand the subject matter of the tutorial.

2. Motivation and focus:
Explain why your topic is important to the ASP-DAC community and what you hope the participants will learn by attending your tutorial.
