Hassoun Receives CEDA Outstanding Service Award

At the awards ceremony held as part of the 52nd annual Design Automation Conference (DAC) in San Francisco, June 7-11, Professor and Chair Soha Hassoun received the IEEE CEDA Outstanding Service Award for service to the Electronic Design Automation (EDA) community as DAC General Chair in 2014.

"DAC is a once-a-year chance for all of us to learn about advances in electronic design automation, to engage in discussions about new hot topics such as IP and system integration and to network with skilled colleagues," said Hassoun of last year's conference. "Whether attendees are looking for a specific tool or for insights from experienced colleagues for a particular problem, they will find what they need at DAC."

In 2013, Hassoun received the "DAC Innovation Award" for creating a "Designer Track", a core part of the conference that aims to engage designers that utilize EDA tools. She was awarded another "DAC Innovation Award" for creating the "work-in-progress" session while she served as technical program co-chair for the conference in 2012 and 2013.

As one of DAC's major sponsors, the IEEE Council on EDA (CEDA) sponsored key events at DAC2015 and presented another Outstanding Award to Jörg Henkel, Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT), for outstanding service to the EDA community as ICCAD General Chair in 2013.
