The ESD Alliance celebrated the rich, 50 year history of EDA at:

Nearly five decades ago, a new era in electronics innovation was born: Electronic Design Automation (EDA). And the world has never been the same. Before EDA, integrated circuits were designed by hand and manually laid out. EDA changed all of that, providing ways to automate the design process and take electronics to places never dreamed possible.

On October 16, 2013, the ESD Alliance (formerly the EDA Consortium) hosted this unforgettable party to recognize the EDA industry and its rich history. Special guests include industry luminaries and alumni who will join with present day members of our community to celebrate the past, look to the future, connect with old friends and make new ones. Festivities include a retrospective from Bill Joyner, entertainment and an auction to raise funds for the preservation of EDA history by the Computer History Museum.
