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 2013and 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.

Scope of the Event

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.

Structure of the Event

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).
