The Phil Kaufman Award for Distinguished Contributions to Electronic Design Automation (EDA) ceremony will move to DAC in Austin. In previous years the recipient of the award has been announced around September with the actual presentation at a dinner in October or November. Instead, this year's award will be presented at a dinner on Sunday June 2nd at DAC in Austin, folliwing the annual DAC Sunday night welcome reception, the ultimate EDA networking event.
The Kaufman award is sponsored by the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDAC) and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA). As a result of this change in presentation date, the closing date for nominations for the award has been extended until Thursday January 31st 2013.
Nomination forms are available here.
