PhD Students initiatives

The DATE 2022 conference includes a number of initiatives targeting PhD and master students, with the goal of increasing their visibility, establishing contacts, and encouraging discussion about their future perspectives with experts of the field.

PhD Forum

The PhD forum is a great opportunity for PhD students to present their work to a broad audience in the system design and design automation community from both industry and academia, and to establish contacts for entering the job market.

Career Fair

The Career Fair aims at bringing together Ph.D. Students and potential job seekers with recruiters from EDA and microelectronic companies. Interested jobseekers have the opportunity to apply to the best workplaces in the industry, and to have a video interview with interested companies.

BarCamp

The BarCamp is an interactive open research meeting. Participants present, discuss and jointly develop ideas and results of the ongoing scientific work in a more interactive way.

  • to advertise new or upcoming research initiatives associated with new PhD/PostDoc open positions to a large audience of graduate students. Interested research academics are invited to submit a 1-page abstract description disseminating their new research plans.

Funding Fair

The Sponsorship Fair aims at bringing together University Student Teams involved in international competitions and personnel from EDA and microelectronic companies.
