Welcome to ICCAD
Louis Scheffer - General Chair

ICCAD continues to be the premier -- and most selective -- conference devoted to technical innovations in design automation. ICCAD's program of technical papers, tutorials, and keynote highlights the most important current and future research challenges. A day of workshops on hot topics promises non-stop technical excitement. And as always, a large number of side meetings and social events provide plenty of opportunities for networking and meeting colleagues and friends.

This year's ICCAD starts on Monday, November 8 and continues through Wednesday, November 10; you will find up-to-date details on the conference website http://www.iccad.com. This year's CANDE workshop will be held immediately before ICCAD on November 4, only a short hop away in Monterey. ICCAD's workshops will be on Thursday, November 11. Continuing a practice started last year, ICCAD will integrate its tutorials into the technical program Monday through Wednesday. These tutorials, given by world experts, are an excellent opportunity for updating your knowledge in state-of-the-art and emerging areas.

We received 360 worldwide submissions and the technical program committee, after careful deliberation, selected 108 excellent papers for presentation. These papers are split into 40 sessions over the three days of the technical program. In addition, the ICCAD program this year includes eight tutorials, as well as the designer track, all focused on providing additional broad perspectives for our CAD audience.

ICCAD 2010 is privileged to have a keynote address from James Bouwer, from The National Center for Microscopy and Imaging Research (NCMIR) at the University of California, San Diego. James will outline the challenges of imaging in modern biology - a field that shares a number of challenges with IC design, from the design of the detector chips themselves, to the requirements for complex algorithms, huge data sets, and the need for parallel processing. The considerable expertise of the ICCAD community in dealing with problems of scale and technical complexity can be critical to addressing these new challenges successfully, he believes.

ICCAD 2010 is the place to be this November! See you in San Jose!
