What to Watch out for at DAC Today

Today's one of those days where I wish I could be a two places at one time, since there are so many really interesting talks to attend. I have a feeling I'm going to be to doing a lot of shuttling back and forth between sessions today :).

The big attraction today is the Keynote presentation by Bill Dally from NVIDIA/Stanford (Gateway Ballroom, 11:15 AM).

Nonetheless, I'm hoping that opposed to the last keynote talk, Prof. Dally's will have more technical details and less "let's-all-work-together" soft content. There's been a lot of talk recently about how massively parallel GPUs will be the general-purpose compute platform of the future and the synopsis of the talk seems to be pushing, not surprisingly, the same theme. What I like is the focus on how the EDA industry can contribute to the design if such massively parallel platforms.


I made a huge mistake. Apparently, the Special Session on green technologies is NOT today as I previously blogged, but tomorrow. So there is, in fact, no scheduling conflict between the Keynote and the Special Session.
