DATE 2020 in Grenoble replaced by a virtual conference that will be scheduled in the coming weeks

The Corona virus (COVID-19) is affecting the plans of many people who made arrangements to attend DATE 2020 in Grenoble. The DATE organizers have carefully been watching the situation over the past weeks, with full attention for the health and safety of all presenters, exhibitors and attendees, and have explored all options to maintain the event as planned. The current situation with increasing travel restrictions and cancellations, however, no longer makes it possible to guarantee the program and the quality expected from DATE.

Therefore, it has been decided to organize DATE 2020 as a virtual event in the coming weeks instead of the physical event that was planned in Grenoble from March 9 to 13, 2020.

To implement this, the following actions will be taken:

  1. A virtual conference environment will be set up to allow authors of accepted papers (long/short regular presentations, Interactive Presentations, Special Session presentations), as well as Exhibition Theatre and PhD Forum presenters who want to, to present their work in a virtual way;
  2. All papers presented in the virtual conference will be published in IEEE Xplore and ACM Digital Library;
  3. A virtual market environment will be set up for the exhibitors;

All registered attendees will receive more information through e-mail in the next few days.

***Update: Presenters were contacted with information on how to submit presentations with audio-recorded voice to collect all necessary data for setting up the platform for the virtual conference. Further information will follow soon.***

University Booth Programme

The University Booth is organised during DATE and will be located in the exhibition area at booth 11. All demonstrations will take place from Tuesday, March 10 to Thursday, March 12, 2020 during DATE. Universities and public research institutes have been invited to submit hardware or software demonstrators.

The University Booth programme is composed of 42 demonstrations from 11 countries, presenting software and hardware solutions. The programme is organised in 11 sessions of 2 or 2.5 h duration and will cover the topics:

  • Electronic Design Automation Prototypes
  • Hardware Design and Test Prototypes
  • Embedded Systems Design

The University Booth at DATE 2020 invites you to find out more about the latest trends in software and hardware from the international research community.

Most demonstrators will be shown more than once, giving visitors more flexibility to come to the booth and find out about the latest innovations.

We are sure that the demonstrators will give an attractive supplement to the DATE conference program and exhibition. We would like to thank all contributors to this programme.

More information is available online at https://www.date-conference.com/exhibition/university-booth. The University Booth programme is included in the conference booklet and available online at https://www.date-conference.com/exhibition/university-booth/programme. The following demonstrators will be presented at the University Booth.

Authors' Guidelines for Audio-Visual Presentation

This page describes the guidelines to prepare and present audio-visual materials at DATE. Please read all instructions carefully and follow them strictly to maintain the highest possible standards. Even experienced speakers should read the following paragraphs, as they cover several problems that have arisen over the years.

General Instructions for …

… Oral Presentations

Presentation Submission

DATE will provide a centralised presentation management system for all speakers of the main conference. You will not be allowed to use your own laptop for presentation on-site – no exceptions.

To enable the A/V staff to handle the technical aspects in an efficient way, all presentations should be prepared according to the "General Instructions for Preparing A/V Material". It is essential that the correct format is used.

Please bring your presentation file with you (CD/DVD/Memory Stick) to the conference and submit it to the presentations server at the A/V Office.

Before the conference, you can upload your presentation by using the web-based upload service at https://date.t-e-m.de. The correct file name is set automatically by the server. The access data for the upload service will be sent to the main contributing author in due time. The upload service will close on 25 February 2020, 23:59:59 CET.

At the Conference

Preview computer systems, identical in software and hardware to the ones used for presentation, will be available in the Audio/Video Office at the conference. This room can be used during below-mentioned times of the DATE 2020 week for presentation concerns. Since this facility will be shared between multiple presenters, its use can be limited.

Monday 1300 – 1900
Tuesday 0730 – 1900
Wednesday 0730 – 1800
Thursday 0730 – 1730

All presenters are required to meet with the local conference Audio/Video staff at least two hours before the beginning of their session to check their presentation at one of the conference computers. However, it is strongly recommended to do so the day before the session if possible.

The facilities at the A/V Office will provide the possibility of:

  • uploading the presentations to the server
  • reviewing the presentations on Windows-based computers
  • last minute alterations of the presentations
  • support by technical staff

Please submit your presentation to the A/V Office via one of the following media:

  • CD ROM (CD-R/RW), DVD-ROM (DVD-R/RW)
  • USB memory stick

Save all files associated with your presentation (PowerPoint file, movie/video files etc.) to one folder/location. We recommend to save videos and graphics and pictures separately on your storage medium. In case of problems, we can re-insert the originals.

In the event that you have more than one presentation during the conference, save the different presentations in different folders and name them clearly to avoid any on-site misunderstandings and problems.

Always make a backup copy of your presentations and all associated files and save them on a separate portable medium by yourself.

Conference staff will transfer your presentation from the A/V Office to the corresponding session rooms. You will easily find your presentation on the laptop installed at the lectern in your session room.

Each session room is equipped with:

  • Video projector
  • Lectern with microphone
  • Laptop with operating system Windows 10 (English)
  • presenter with laser pointer and slideshow remote control

You can control/move slides during your presentation on your own (by remote control – please kindly check this in the Speaker Preview Room in advance).

Kindly be at the session room at least 20 minutes before the session starts to meet the chair and familiarise yourself with the technical and other equipment.

Using your own laptop for presentation is not possible.

During your presentation you should keep in mind your time limit. The session moderator will stop your presentation if it takes more than your allocated time slot.

Speaker’s Breakfast

There will be a speaker’s breakfast in the morning of your presentation. It will be located in the ground level of the Alpes Congrès Building, and it will start at 7:30 a.m. Attending the speaker's breakfast at the morning of your presentation is mandatory in order to get all final instructions. A sign with the session number will point to your table.

… Preparing A/V Material

When preparing your AV material, keep the time limit for your presentation in mind. To make your visual presentation a success, it needs to be well planned to clearly point out the important results of your research. The audience will appreciate your talk only if your material is visible and legible. They will remember your talk far better and read your paper if you can manage to communicate at least two important facts within your presentation timeslot. Please consider that the audience will need at least a minute to understand each technical slide.

The first slide should contain the title of your paper and the author names, your affiliations and your company, university or funding logo (if applicable). This will be the only page where logos are permitted.

Keep your material simple and uncluttered. Program listings and very long equations should be avoided. Tables should be represented graphically, wherever possible. Do not use the valuable space on your slides for large company logos and other elements that do not help in motivation or understanding your work. Duplicates of slides should only be produced in case the same information is needed twice.

Presentation Format

Please use Microsoft PowerPoint 97-2016 (*.ppt/*pptx), OpenOffice / LibreOffice 1.0 – 6.0, PREZI or Adobe PDF to guarantee your presentation will open successfully on an on-site PC.

All slides must use landscape format with 16:9 aspect ratio.

Please limit the file size to less than 25 MB (except video content) to minimise problems with storage and access speed that can result in a distorted or incomplete presentation.

To speed up your start, we provide a PowerPoint template presentation. You are encouraged to use this template to prepare your presentation. Press here to download the PowerPoint file.

Mac users: please convert your file to PowerPoint format or PDF before you leave for the conference. Be aware that PowerPoint Mac-to-PC conversions can lead to unexpected results, especially with fonts, certain formats of embedded graphics, and special characters (ASCII characters 128 to 255). To avoid questions of PowerPoint compatibility, please embed all used fonts, convert them to vectors or use only compatible fonts (e. g. Arial, Courier New, Lucida Sans, Times New Roman, Verdana).

Pictures and Videos

Because of the many different video formats, support cannot be provided for embedded videos in your presentation; please test your presentation with the on-site PC several hours before your presentation. Generally, the WMV and MPEG-4 format should work without difficulties.

Movies or videos that require additional reading or projection equipment (e.g. VHS cassettes, Video-DVDs) will not be accepted.

Audio is supported.

Fonts

Only fonts which are included in the basic installation of MS-Windows 10 will be available. Use of other fonts not included in Windows can cause a wrong layout/style of your presentation (Suggested fonts: Arial, Tahoma). If you use different fonts, these must be embedded into your presentation.

Please use high contrast lettering and fonts with a minimum size of 16 pt and high contrast layouts like light text on dark colours.

Please make sure that also index expressions are clearly visible and use an appropriate font size.

Colours

Colour should be used carefully and colour combinations resulting in a low contrast (e.g. dark blue on black) should be avoided. Be aware that the contrast of your computer monitor is much higher than that of a projector in a partly lit room

Try to use only colours that convert for black and white printing. The distinction between blue and black for text and thin lines is especially weak. Red filled-in objects (circles, rectangles, etc.) with white text are well-suited for highlighting important text.

If one of the speakers is missing, leave the presentation slot empty to be on schedule. Within your session, please introduce the speakers and keep track of the time limits (indicate to the speaker when it is time to stop). Please also manage the question and answer procedure after each talk (long dialogues have to be done off-line). If there are Interactive Presentations assigned to your session, please provide a one-minute time slot to each of them at the end of the session. After your session, please fill in the session evaluation form and return it to the conference registration desk.

Session Co-Chairs

The main task of a session co-chair is to support the session moderator and to handle unexpected situations. Please estimate the number of attendees (required for the evaluation form). You are requested to handle unexpected noise (talk to security people), A/V problems (talk to A/V people / technicians) and look for missing speakers.
