ASP-DAC has changed the format for the tutorials. Instead of full-day, in-depth tutorials, participants can choose two 3-hour tutorials – one in the morning session and one in the afternoon. For each session, four options are available – two in the physical-design (PD) domain and two in the system-design (SD) domain.
