Student Research Forum

SIGDA Student Research Forum at ASP-DAC 2019

The Student Research Forum at the ASP-DAC is renovated from a traditional poster session hosted by ACM SIGDA for Ph.D. students to present and discuss their dissertation research with experts in system design and design automation community. Starting from 2015, the forum includes both Ph.D. and M.S. students, offering great opportunity for the students to establish contacts for their future career. In addition, the forum helps the companies and academic institutes to get an overview of the latest research and discover the extraordinary candidates for their employment. The forum is open to all students of the relevant research community and is free-of-charge.

  • Date and Time: 18:00-20:00, January 22, 2019
  • Place: Room Jupiter [Food will be served.]
