Event Details


Verification Futures


Verification Futures is a one day conference, exhibition and industry networking event organised by TVS to discuss the challenges faced in hardware verification. The event gives the opportunity to user companies to outline their challenges and for the EDA vendors to respond with possible solutions. It’s also an excellent opportunity to network and catch up with other verification engineers across Europe. This year there will be parallel tracks for the first time which will allow us to cover Hardware Verification in general and also verification specifically for FPGA and Embedded System.



When: Thursday 5 February 2015
Where: Reading, UK – Holiday Inn. Wharfedale Road, Winnersh Triangle, Reading, RG41 5TS (M4 J10)
Cost: FREE to attend as a delegate (In Person or Online)
