The 19th 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 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 and 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, e.g. automotive, wireless, telecom and multimedia applications. The organisation 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.

The Conference

The conference addresses all aspects of research into technologies for electronic and (embedded) systems engineering. It covers the design process, test, and tools for design automation of electronic products ranging from integrated circuits to distributed large-scale systems. This includes both hardware and embedded software design issues. The conference scope also includes the elaboration of design requirements and new architectures for challenging application fields such as telecom, wireless communications, multimedia, healthcare and automotive systems. Persons involved in innovative industrial designs are particularly encouraged to submit papers to foster the feedback from design to research. Panels, hot-topic sessions and embedded tutorials highlight and inform about emerging topics.

Special Days in the programme will focus on two areas bringing new challenges to the system design community:

Automotive Systems: High-end cars today have more than 100 ECUs connected by various communication buses like CAN, FlexRay and Ethernet, that are used to run several millions of lines of software code spanning across safety critical, driver assistance and comfort related application domains. Designing, verifying and upgrading such a complex hardware/software system poses several challenges for EDA engineers, computer architects, and embedded systems and software designers. Further, most of the innovation in the automotive domain is now in electronics and software, as can be seen in the form of various new driver assistance systems and functionalities. Hence, there are many interesting opportunities for the EDA and the embedded systems community in the automotive domain, which the automotive special day at DATE 2016 will seek to explore in the form of various technical sessions and discussion panels.

Secure Systems: Security is essential to create a safe and trustworthy Information and Communications Technology infrastructure. Electronics are becoming more and more integrated into the environment: the Internet of Things, Cyber- Physical Systems, Smart Cities are all novel phenomena. Data is stored in and travels from implanted medical devices to the cloud over wireless links and through optical fibers. None of this revolution will be sustainable without adding security. During this special day, several aspects of making systems secure will be addressed. We plan to look at secure HW and SW platforms, address different application domains: automotive, smart grid, or smart factory. We address security versus other functional requirements as dependability and testability, and we investigate design practices for security.

On the first day of the DATE event, half-day in-depth technical tutorials are given by leading experts in their respective fields. The tutorials are well suited for researchers, tool developers and system designers.

Friday Workshops concentrate on specialised and novel topics.

Advancing Electronics Beyond CMOS and System Level Design at DATE 2014 in Dresden

2013-06-04

Call for Papers

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) and Grenoble (2011-2013) has been a great success, the conference comes back to Dresden for DATE 2014.

DATE 2014 will take place at the International Congress Center Dresden, Germany, from 24-28 March 2014. Dresden, located in Germany, and is a leading key semiconductor site in Europe. It concentrates expertise on research, development and manufacturing of leading-edge technologies in order to drive semiconductor industry at the top. Major players are e.g. the Technical University which has recently succeeded in the German Excellence Initiative, GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Infineon. The cooperation among all these players has evolved Silicon Saxony, a collaborative association with around 300 companies (40,000 employees) that represents the largest center of microelectronics in Europe. Dresden, the “City of Science”, has 11 Fraunhofer institutes, including Fraunhofer Center for Nanoelectronic Technologies (CNT), the IFW, the HZDR and further research institutes devoted to semiconductors.

The conference addresses all aspects of research into technologies for electronic and (embedded) systems engineering.  The Call for Papers shows the wide scope of technical contributions, covering the design process, test, and tools for design automation of electronic products ranging from integrated circuits to distributed large-scale systems.  This includes both hardware and embedded software design issues.  The conference scope also includes the elaboration of design requirements and new architectures for challenging application fields such as telecom, wireless communications, multimedia, and automotive systems. All papers have to be submitted electronically by Sunday, September 13, 2015 23:59:59 CET for standard oral presentation or for interactive presentation.

Two Special Days in the programme will focus on areas bringing new challenges to the system design community: Advancing Electronics Beyond CMOS and System Level Design. Each of the Special Days will have a full program of keynotes, panels, tutorials and technical presentations.

As the issues associated with CMOS scaling become harder and more costly to solve, the special day Advancing Electronics beyond CMOS will cover the latest trends towards alternative devices and paradigms for computing and data acquisition, storage and transport. Important topics include nanoscale switching devices and computing nanofabrics, trends in memory technologies in hybrid 3D integration, flexible and organic electronics, new state variable vectors (spintronics, photonics) and interfaces to the natural world (sensor networks, data analysis, displays, MEMS).

The special day System-Level Design will reflect current industrial practices as well as present recent advances in this research area. A particular emphasis will be on ultra-low power design and modeling at multiple abstraction levels, virtual platforms for software development and architecture design of MPSoCs. We will also take a look at high-level synthesis from different input languages as well as software code generation techniques. Important topics also include multicore enablement for safety-critical and real-time embedded systems as well as accelerator-rich design for the fight against dark silicon.

The conference is complemented by an exhibition running for three days (Tuesday – Thursday). This represents a unique networking opportunity for vendors of tools and services for hardware and embedded software for the design, development and test of Systems-on-Chip, IPs, Embedded Systems, ASICs, FPGAs and PCBs including a broad range of design reuse technologies and services.

The Exhibition Theatre is an open discussion forum on the exhibition floor, which offers a mix of panel discussions and user testimonials that provide a dynamic overview of key technical and business issues in electronic and embedded systems design. Submissions are invited from industry consortia, technology groups, standards bodies, or any person with opinions on future industry trends by Sunday, October 18, 2015.

On the first day of the DATE event, in-depth technical tutorials are given by leading experts in their respective fields.  The tutorials are well suited for researchers, tool developers and system designers. Friday Workshops concentrate on specialized emerging research and application topics. Tutorials and Friday Workshops Proposals have to be submitted electronically by Sunday, September 13, 2015 23:59:59 CET.
