He has authored well over 300 publications in the VLSI CAD literature, receiving six Best Paper awards and an NSF Young Investigator award. Kahng also served as the founding General Chair of the ACM/IEEE International Symposium on Physical Design, and since 2000 has chaired or co-chaired the Design technology working group for the International Technology Roadmap for Semiconductors. His research focuses on integrated-circuit physical design and performance analysis, as well as the VLSI design-manufacturing interface.

Dr. Kahng is joined by 15 other volunteers from across the electronics and electronic design automation (EDA) industries and academia:

  • Vice/Finance Chair Sachin Sapatnekar, University of Minnesota
  • Technical Program Co-Chair, Design Methods Narendra Shenoy, Synopsys Inc.

About DAC

The Design Automation Conference (DAC) is recognized as the premier event for the design of electronic circuits and systems, and for Electronic Design Automation (EDA) and silicon solutions. A diverse worldwide community representing more than 1,500 organizations attends each year, from system designers and architects, logic and circuit designers, validation engineers, CAD managers, senior managers and executives to researchers and academicians from leading universities. Close to 60 technical sessions selected by a committee of electronic design experts offer information on recent developments and trends, management practices and new products, methodologies and technologies. A highlight of DAC is its Exhibition and Suite area with approximately 200 of the leading and emerging EDA, silicon, design service and IP providers. The conference is sponsored by the Association for Computing Machinery s Special Interest Group on Design Automation (ACM/SIGDA), the Circuits and Systems Society and Council on Electronic Design Automation of the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE/CASS/CEDA) and the Electronic Design Automation Consortium (EDA Consortium).
