This is one of the most useful conferences if you use any Synopsys tools. The papers are very practical, and you can meet engineers who are doing real hands-on ASIC design. The Synopsys tutorial and product updates are very professionally done, and presented by their "star" CAEs who really know the products. The panels can be good, though they're usually not as spicy as the inter-company debates at DAC or the dog fights that John Cooley sets up.
Hope to see you there!
