Siemens EDA at Verification Futures 2022

By Harry Foster

Siemens EDA is excited to participate at Verification Futures 2022 as a Gold Sponsor. This year’s conference is a hybrid event, offering both an online and in-person experience. The conference will be held on Wed, 8 June 2022, 08:30 – 17:00 BST, and registration is free!

The Verification Futures conference provides a distinctive blend of technical presentations, exhibition and industry networking sessions. The conference is dedicated to discussing the challenges and opportunities in hardware and software verification. Verification Futures provides a unique opportunity for end-users to define their current and future verification challenges and collaborate with the vendors to create solutions. It also provides an excellent opportunity to network and catch up with other verification engineers and vendors from across Europe (and the world).

Three Pillars of Intent-Focused Insight

At this year’s Verification Futures, I am presenting a talk titled The Three Pillars of Intent-Focused Insight. And during my talk I make (perhaps a controversial) claim that we are in the midst of a verification crisis manifested by a growing gap between verification efficiency and effectiveness. I also claim that this crisis will not be solved through improvements in verification methodologies and techniques alone. Indeed, I claim that the solution requires a philosophical change in the way we approach design, with an emphasis on bug prevention. During my talk, I propose a unique solution called intent-focused insight to address today’s verification crisis.

I hope you can join us!
