I am happy to share with you that all of the content presented at DVCon US this past March in San Jose is now available online to the general public at https://2020.dvcon-virtual.org . Anyone who registered for the conference has been able to view the content for the past few weeks, but it is now open to everyone.
If you hit the “View Schedule” link on https://2020.dvcon-virtual.org/, you’ll see a “daily schedule” where you can click on one of the days to see the content. As always, Monday and Thursday are the tutorial/workshop days, with Monday including the Panel Discussion with luminaries, including our own Matthew Ballance, from the Accellera Portable Stimulus Working Group.
I’d particularly like to bring your attention to the many great Mentor papers/posters at the conference:
