DATE 2015 receives 915 paper submissions – an all-time high for DATE and a 3% increase over DATE 2014.
Besides the large share (45%) of submissions coming from Europe, 24% of submissions are from North-America, 28% from Asia, and 3% from the rest of the world. This clearly demonstrates DATE’s international character, its global reach and impact.
The most successful topics were:
For the 18th successive year DATE has prepared an exciting technical program. With the help of 209 members of the Technical Program Committee who carried out 3675 reviews (more than four per submission), finally 206 papers (22%) were selected for regular presentation and 86 additional ones (9%) for interactive presentation.
Smartphones with Wi-Fi enabled periodically transmit Wi-Fi messages, even when not associated to a network. In this contest, we propose to develop a software system for passively tracking unmodified smartphones, based on such Wi-Fi detections. This system will rely only on common, off-the-shelf access point hardware to both collect and deliver detections.
Each registered team can have up to 3 members. The IoT contest organizers will provide in advance a map of the possibly assigned positions for the teams (with power plugs and WiFi internet access).
Exact positions will be disclosed on the day of the contest (Monday, March 9th, at DATE week).
Each team brings its own computer with the running tracking software and presents a poster with their solution (software engineering and algorithms). The teams are expected to use their own wireless interface to sniff the ‘hello packets’ of the smartphones.
The evaluation of the proposed solutions will be performed with a set of controlled members (DATE Executive Committee members) who will transit across the area during the contest (MAC addresses to be known in advance). Specific tracking positions will be evaluated by the IoT coordinators.
On site, the contest will take place on a 4 hours slot, which comprises 2 hours of installation – assignment of positions, final debug, … and 2 hours of real test. The evaluation will be done during these 2 hours. Each team will also have to come with a poster describing their technical solution. The DATE attendees are encouraged to come and discuss with the students during this time.
The team with the highest score will win the competition. The price will be subsequently given on Wednesday, March 11th, lunch time, during the keynote talk.

The EDAA/ACM PhD forum is part of the DATE Conference and hosted by ACM SIGDA and the European Design Automation Association (EDAA). The forum is a great opportunity for PhD students to present their thesis work to a broad audience in the system design and design automation community from both industry and academia. The forum may also help students to establish contacts for entering the job market. In addition, representatives from industry and academia get a glance of state-of-the-art in system design and design automation.

Call for Nominations
EDAA Outstanding Dissertations Award 2014
In recognition of the importance of university research to the advancement of design, automation and test, and to encourage young researchers to work in the field, EDAA has established an award for outstanding Ph.D. dissertations in 4 categories:
Topic 1 – New directions in embedded system design and embedded software
Topic 2 – New directions in logic and system design
Topic 3 – New directions in physical design, design for manufacturing and CAD for analog circuits and MEMS.
Topic 4 – New directions in circuit and system test
In each category, one award can be given. Each award consists of a 1000 € prize and a certificate. The awards will be presented at the DATE 2015 conference, where the awardees need to be present.
DATE is a leading international event and unique networking opportunity for design and engineering of Systems-on-Chip, Systems-on-Board and Embedded Systems Software. Since the selection of venues Dresden (2010-2012-2014) and Grenoble (2011-2013) has been a great success, the conference will again take place in Grenoble for DATE 2015.
The Alpexpo Congress Centre will host the five day event from 9 – 13 March, 2015. It is located in close proximity to central Grenoble and provides a modern, well equipped location for DATE.
The city of Grenoble, which is surrounded by outstanding natural beauty of the Alps, has a strong economy linked to the research and innovation activities performed by leading national and international large companies such as STMicroelectronics, IBM, Schneider Electric, France Telecom, Thales, Hewlett Packard, Soitec, Xerox and others with more than 38,000 people in micro and nano technologies (24,000) and 14000 in embedded software. It is. the second largest research centre in France with 15 research centres and universities (CEA-LETI – 1,700 researchers, TIMA, Verimag) and more than 100 startup companies located in the area in addition to 117 companies – 81% of which are SME’s.

The DATE 2014 Conference and Exhibition ended last Friday, March 28, 2014, attracting more than 1450 participants from all over the world and closing with a throughout positive feedback from both visitors and exhibitors.
The highlights of the event were among others the two Special Days “System Level Design” and “Advancing Electronics beyond CMOS” with a full programme of keynotes, panels, tutorials and technical presentations as well as the two opening keynotes from David Fuller, Vice President of Application and Embedded Software for National Instruments, who presented a talk about “System Design Challenges for Next Generation Wireless and Embedded Systems” and Gerd Teepe, Director Design Engineering at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in Dresden who talked about “The Growing Importance of Microelectronics from a Foundry Perspective”.
The Executive Track with executive speakers from Synopsis, Cadence, IBM, IMEC, TSMC Europe, Mentor Graphics and many other companies leading the design and automation industry was also a huge success.
With 1090 submissions, an all-time high for DATE and an 8% increase over DATE 2013, and more than 54% of the papers coming from outside Europe, the DATE conference proved to be the number one conference worldwide in its field. In addition to the 12 half-day Tutorials on Monday and the main technical conference with 57 regular and 16 special sessions, DATE included an exhibition with 32 exhibiting companies, 6 European Projects Booths and 4 exhibition theatre sessions. With almost 250 attendees, the additional 8 Friday Workshops were a major event on its own and completed the DATE week successfully.
Conference and Exhibition: March 9-13, 2015
Call for Papers
The 18th DATE conference and exhibition is the main European event bringing together designers and design automation users, researchers and vendors, as well as specialists in the hardware and software design, test and manufacturing of electronic circuits and systems. It puts strong emphasis on both ICs/SoCs, reconfigurable hardware and embedded systems, including embedded software.
The five-day event consists of a conference with plenary invited papers, regular papers, panels, hot-topic sessions, tutorials, workshops, two special focus days and a track for executives. The scientific conference is complemented by a commercial exhibition showing the state-of-the-art in design and test tools, methodologies, IP and design services, reconfigurable and other hardware platforms, embedded software, and (industrial) design experiences from different application domains, such as automotive, wireless, telecom and multimedia applications. The organization of user group meetings, fringe meetings, a university booth, a PhD forum, vendor presentations and social events offers a wide variety of extra opportunities to meet and exchange information on relevant issues for the design and test community. Special space will also be allocated for EU-funded projects to show their results. More details are given on the DATE website (www.date-conference.com).
