Free DAC (Austin) tickets: Atrenta/Jasper/Forte giving away I HEART DAC tickets, thanks to John Cooley

Subject: SCOOP -- Atrenta/Jasper/Forte giving away I HEART DAC tickets

Although not it's officially announced yet -- Atrenta, Jasper, and Forte
are sponsoring the 5th year in a row of the I HEART DAC campaign that
gives away free passes to the upcoming DAC'13 in Austin, Texas.

These I HEART DAC passes give the bearer free exhibit entry from Monday
through Wednesday (June 3 -5), plus entry into the Designer Track, plus
the five Keynotes, plus DAC Pavilion panels and networking events.

This year's DAC will have 175 exhibitors with 17 first-timers.

The Designer's Track will have 56 talks in 12 sessions and 100 posters.

In addition, since DAC is in Austin, there's an added DESIGNED IN TEXAS
track where the local Texas engineers will give invited 30-minute talks
across two days of the conference -- with the idea of having Texas
engineers directly networking with each other.

The I HEART DAC program first started back in 2009 when Atrenta, Denali
and Springsoft together bought 600 tickets to give to unemployed design
and verification engineers so they could still attend DAC'09 -- to keep
their careers current.

That was 5 years ago.  Since then, the I HEART DAC program has expanded
to accept ANY engineer (employed or unemployed) who wants to attend DAC.
