Other similar conferences are the International Conference on Computer-Aided Design, or ICCAD (technical only, no trade show), Design Automation and Test in Europe (DATE), Asia and South Pacific Design Automation Conference (ASPDAC), and International Symposium on Quality Electronic Design (ISQED).
Over the past few years the conference location has been alternating among San Diego, Anaheim, and San Francisco. The conference is usually held in mid-June except when held in San Francisco, where the conference is held in late July.
DAC is sponsored by several professional societies: ACM-SIGDA (Association of Computing Machinery, Special Interest Group on Design Automation), EDAC (EDA Consortium), IEEE-CAS/CANDE/CEDA (Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers, IEEE Circuits and Systems Society, Computer-Aided Network DEsign Committee, and IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation), in technical cooperation with IEEE-SSCS (IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society).
