2017 CELUG Co-Located Conference at DAC

Published by:

This year’s CELUG Co-Located Conference is once again in Austin, Texas from June 20 through June 22.  As is normal, we will have a Members-Only dinner one night and a Networking Event on Wednesday open to all attendees of the Conference, CELUG Member or not.

The Conference is a great way to network with your peers, get insight into what is coming from key suppliers for license services and to have an impact on how those roadmaps get implemented.  Perennial presenters include companies such as FlexeraSynopsysCadenceMentor GraphicsAnsys and others.  We are working on the agenda still and will update this post as it gets more concrete.

Good hotels go fast, so be sure go book yours now at the DAC website now!  Conference registration fees for participants is $650 in advance and $700 at the door, so be sure to register before the deadline!


CELUG/EDAC Evening Networking Event at DAC 2016

Published by:

All aboard!  On Wednesday after the conference, we will board busses to take us to the shores of Lady Bird Lake where we will board The Lone Star Riverboat to take a cruise around Austin.  The ship offers a covered lower deck with air conditioning and an uncovered upper deck for viewing the famous Austin bats on the Congress Street Bridge.

This is a great opportunity for you to network with the conference goers and go into more depth on topics you heard about during the day.  The open atmosphere lets you engage many different people in an intimate atmosphere, without being stuck in the same seat all night as in a traditional sit-down dinner.

All attendees are invited.  Dinner will be Texas Barbecue (brisket, chicken and sausage).  Vegetarian options will be available.  Beer and wine will be served.
