The 21st IP-SoC Days conference will be held in Grenoble, France, on December 5-6, 2017. IP-SoC is now the unique IP centric conference, with presentations reflecting the complete IP ecosystem: IP suppliers and foundries, external IP or internal reuse managers. Look at the program, you will see the hot topics covered during the conference, like Security, AI and Safety, Edge Computing and IoT, new trends in IP (eFPGA, Analog IP reuse), IP tracking or IP management. And like a new mantra, low power and energy efficiency!
When I remember 5 years back, in 2013, IP-SoC was taking place in a large auditorium (for the keynotes and main sessions), plus a few rooms for the other sessions. The problem was that the auditorium was far to be full, and the attendees had the perception of a declining conference. We must insist on the word “perception”, and this perception was coming from the fact that the auditorium was just too large. Pr. Gabriele Saucier, founder of D&R and running IP-SoC, was cleaver enough to get the point and find the right solution. It was to organize IP-SoC in another place and make the conference more focused. Last year, the room was full and the audience very attentive.
It’s even more important for the IP ecosystem to rely on the IP-SoC days for networking when you hear the rumors about the DAC future! Don’t expect me to comment these rumors. Being part of the DAC IP Committee, it wouldn’t be wise, moreover, I don’t know the outcome about the next DAC.
