DATE PhD Forum 2021                                                                          

Date: Monday, 01 February 2021
Time: 17:00 - 19:00

The PhD Forum of the DATE Conference is a poster session hosted by the European Design Automation Association (EDAA), the ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (SIGDA), and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA). The purpose of the PhD Forum is to offer a forum for PhD students to discuss their thesis and research work with people of the design automation and system design community. It represents a good opportunity for students to get exposure on the job market and to receive valuable feedback on their work.

To this end, the forum takes place in two parts:
• First, everybody is invited to an opening session of the PhD Forum, where all presenters will present their work by means of a 1min pitch.
• After that (at approx. 17:30), all presenters will present their work within a 1.5 hour "poster" presentation in separate rooms. Within this timeframe, everyone can enter and leave the respective rooms and engage in corresponding discussions.

Furthermore, for each presentation, a poster (in pdf) summarizing the presentation will be provided.
