Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier event devoted to the
design and automation of electronic circuits and systems, is fortunate
to once again host Thursday
is Training Day, a program that allows DAC attendees to
attend quality design sessions on popular subjects. The 56th
DAC will be held at the Las Vegas Convention Center from June 2- 6, 2019
in Las Vegas, NV. Conference registration is now
open, including sign-up for “Thursday is Training Day.”
Thursday is Training Day offers DAC attendees the opportunity to learn a
variety of popular programming subjects from leading training provider Doulos.
All sessions are taught by respected Doulos instructors who are
subject-matter experts and who each have years of experience of teaching
engineers at all skill levels. Attendees may choose sessions from two parallel
tracks. Many attendees will want to attend both the morning and
afternoon sessions from the same track, but it is also possible to
mix-and-match sessions from two different tracks or to attend just a
single half-day session.
In addition to the traditional Thursday is Training Day, Doulos will
host a lunch and learn tutorial on Python for Scientific Computing
and Deep Learning on Wednesday, June 5, at DAC between 12:15 – 1:15
p.m. As well as being a general-purpose programming and scripting
language, Python has become one of the most popular languages for
scientific computing and more recently for deep learning. Python is
everywhere. Python is easy to learn, and Python programs are very
readable, even by people who don’t know Python. There are Python
libraries available for doing pretty much anything.
In this lunch and learn session you will learn enough to start using
Python as a scripting language and you will become sufficiently familiar
with Python to start making sense of the emerging libraries and
frameworks used for deep learning, such as TensorFlow and Keras. This
tutorial will teach you some of the amazing things you can do with
Python right out-of-the-box!
Seating is limited and registration is requested. Pre-registrants also
receive a $50.00 discount coupon to attend one Doulos main sessions on
Thursday is Training Day. Lunch
and learn registration.

The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier
event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for
electronic design automation (EDA) and silicon solutions. A diverse
worldwide community representing more than 1,000 organizations attends
each year, represented by system designers and architects, logic and
circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers
and executives to researchers and academicians from leading
universities. More than 75 technical sessions selected by a committee of
electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and
trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and
technologies. A highlight of DAC is its exhibition and suite area with
approximately 170 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, intellectual
property (IP) and design services providers. The conference is sponsored
by the Association for Computing Machinery’s Special Interest Group on
Design Automation (ACM SIGDA), and the Institute of Electrical and
Electronics Engineer’s Council on Electronic Design Automation (IEEE
