Verification 3.0 Innovation Summit

Driven by a who’s who of verification technology leaders, the Verification 3.0 Innovation Summit has been established to focus on verification innovation. This exclusive, half-day seminar will provide advanced technical content focused around a range of topics on semiconductor verification, as well as a keynote and a reception.

To be held on the afternoon of March 19th at the well-appointed Levi’s Stadium Team Auditorium, the seminar has been scheduled and located adjacent to the 2019 Synopsys User Group (SNUG) conference.

The seminar will include multiple sessions of informative presentations, a keynote by renowned EDA luminary and former CEO of Cadence, Joe Costello, and a reception in the Levi’s Stadium Black Oak Casino Club overlooking the Levi’s Stadium field. The reception will include a mini-exhibit from the sponsoring companies. Leading product companies and verification service providers will tackle topical subjects, discussing the latest thinking on critical verification methodology and technologies.

The seminar and reception are free of charge. However, register soon as only 126 seats are available.
