This workshop is for young and mid-career faculty and professionals in the fields related to electronic design automation (EDA). The workshop will start in the morning with an interactive session borrowing techniques from IMPROV to help you improve your soft (interpersonal, communication, etc.) skills with others. This is followed by presentations and panel discussions by professionals discussing diverse topics such as navigating the various challenges to better succeed and thrive in your academic or industry job, getting your projects funded and climbing academic and technical ladders, as well as improved cooperation between industry and academia research and development. In addition, the workshop will provide rich opportunities to closely interact and network with some of the established academicians, professionals, and funding officers in EDA-related fields.
