DVCon is an international conference

sponsored by Accellera Systems Initiative

and held around the world.


Welcome to DVCon Japan 2023 !

June 22, 2023

Kawasaki City Industrial Promotion Hall


The Design & Verification Conference & Exhibition is the premier conference on the application of languages, tools, methodologies and standards for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits. The focus of this highly technical conference is on the practical aspects of these technologies and their use in leading-edge projects to encourage attendees to adopt similar techniques to improve their own design and verification flows.

Welcome Message

Dear Friends,


DVCon Japan 2023 will be held on June 22, 2023 at Kawasaki City Industrial Promotion Hall.


The first DVCon Japan was held in June 2022, with online and on-demand streaming. We would like to thank the many people who attended and participated in the conference. We were able to provide a wide variety of content with a variety of paper presentations and tutorial sessions. At the same time we could add a new page in the 30+ years history of DVCon worldwide. We would like to thank all the participants, presenters, sponsors, and all those involved.


DVCon Japan 2023 is planned to be held in Kawasaki City Industrial Promotion Hall in the form of an impersonal conference format. Focusing on the extremely important issue of functional verification, the conference will cover a wide range of topics including IEEE standards such as SystemVerilog, UVM, UPF, and also Portable Test and Stimulus Standard, formal verification methodologies, analog mixed-signal, IP-XACT and so on. We also would like to invite you to join us for discussions including functional safety and security. And please network with other attendees, presenters and attendees, sponsors, and Accellera representatives.


Designers, Engineers, and Managers are encouraged to participate in paper presentations, tutorials, panel discussions, and exhibits. I hope to see you in DVCon Japan !


DVCon Japan 2023 General Chair : Genichi Tanaka
