The Design & Verification Conference (DVCon) is the premier conference on the application of languages, tools, methodologies, and standards for the design and verification of electronic systems and integrated circuits. 


This highly technical conference focuses on the practical aspects of design and verification techniques and the use of standards in leading-edge projects, with the goal of facilitating the improvement and maturation of design and verification techniques throughout the industry by encouraging attendees to adopt and reference similar techniques in their own development flow. 


The DVCon Japan Steering Committee invites submissions of papers and presentations on practical experiences and novel applications of standards in various areas. Submissions on topics in the following areas are encouraged, but not limited to:

Submission Guidelines


DVCon Japan has adopted the following process to reduce the amount of time and effort required to prepare for the submission of papers.

  • We accept submissions in the form of a paper (short paper, 2-6 pages) or slides (6 pages slides plus 100-words abstract)
  • If you are accepted through peer review by the Technical Program Committee, please complete the paper and presentation slides (however, if you submit by slides, you do not need to complete the paper)
  • Both formats are available in Japanese and English
  • Submitted papers and slides will be reviewed by the Technical Program Committee under the DVCon Steering Committee and will be considered for presentation at the DVCon
  • Presentation time at the conference will be 30 minutes, including Q&A
  • As with other regional DVCons, corporate logos may only be included on the title slide of the presentation
  • Please use the templates provided for both papers and slides
