Welcome to the DATE 2021 Website

Taking into consideration the continued erratic development of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions of worldwide travelling as well as the safety and health of the DATE community, the Organising Committees decided to host DATE 2021 as a virtual conference in early February 2021. Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow a face-to-face conference in Grenoble, France.

The Organising Committees are working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible. Industry Partners will soon be informed about virtual exhibition and sponsorship opportunities.

Updated information will always be available on this page.

PhD Forum - Call for Submissions

The PhD forum is hosted by the European Design Automation Association (EDAA), the ACM Special Interest Group on Design Automation (SIGDA), and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA). The forum is a great opportunity for PhD students who have completed their PhD thesis within the last 12 months or who are close to complete their thesis to present their 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.

The vibrant exhibition at DATE 2018, Dresden

The DATE exhibition will run for three days (Tuesday-Thursday). The spacious exhibition area will be located close to the conference rooms. As the area is positioned centrally, a constant frequentation will be guaranteed.

DATE also arranges a number of special events and features on the show floor in order to increase exhibition visits, such as an Exhibition Reception on Tuesday evening, extended conference breaks and an Exhibition Theatre with industry themed presentations.

Thus, the exhibition offers the perfect opportunity for discussions and talks with conference delegates, for gaining new industry contacts or intensifying existing business relationships. Furthermore, the DATE exhibition states the perfect venue for industries to meet university professors to foster their university programme and especially for PhD Students to meet their future employers.

DATE continues to be a growing event attracting more than 1,400 conference delegates and exhibition visitors annually.
