Zuken announced the launch of a new annual conference for their user community. Zuken welcomes attendees from a diverse range of industries to eight locations worldwide. Users of Zuken's tools, their managers, and industry media alike will find sessions to interest, inform and inspire at each event.

Steve Chidester, Zuken's Head of International Marketing, said: "We've listened to attendee feedback from all of our local events and incorporated new ideas to create Zuken Innovation World. We appreciate our users taking time out of their busy schedules to attend. The program is designed to return them to their companies enthused and armed with information, training, and new ideas that they can put to use right away."
Previous user conferences – known locally by different names – were gatherings of some of the best technical and business minds in the Zuken community. Drawn from leading companies in their fields around the globe, attendees represented more than 800 companies. I attended last year's US conference in Austin TX, where the company introduced its CR-8000 system level design tool. It was a well structured conference and I had the opportunity to meet many Zuken customers who were impressed by the capabilities of the new product.
The new Zuken Innovation World events will be structured around the common theme of "innovation" and will have a local flavor, with conference programs tailored to the needs of the regional audience.
With a mix of Zuken users and partners, along with industry and Zuken technology experts, these conferences will be a fertile environment for networking, learning how to work faster and more effectively, and discovering how to use the latest Zuken technology to implement innovative practices in the attendees' own design environments. This will be achieved through a mix of user presentations, technical sessions, discussion groups, and lively networking events.
