Reminder Paper Submissions at ww.date-conference.com/submission-instructions
Deadline Paper Submission: Tuesday, September 13, 2016 23:59:59 CET - EXTENDED

We would like to remind you that the deadline for paper submissions for DATE 2017 ends on Sunday, September 11, 2016.

In 2017, the DATE conference will celebrate its 20th edition! It will take place from 27 to 31 March, 2017, at the SwissTech Convention Centre in Lausanne, Switzerland, and will be chaired by Professor David Atienza (EPFL, CH).

The whole Organizing Committee is going to prepare an especially remarkable technical programme, again addressing all aspects of research into technologies for electronic and embedded system engineering.

Two Special Days in the programme will focus on two areas bringing new challenges to the system design community: “Designing Electronics for the Internet of Things Era” and “Designing Wearable and Smart Medical Devices”

The whole DATE Executive Committee cordially invites you to join us at this occasion and warmly welcomes all paper submissions for standard oral presentation or for interactive presentation. Furthermore, it encourages proposals for Special Sessions, Tutorials, Friday Workshops, European Projects, University Booth, PhD Forum and Exhibition Theatre. Special attention and consideration will be given to Special Session proposals matching this year’s technical programme and exhibition focus on Internet of Things (IoT), smart wearable electronics, energy-efficient cloud computing and advanced robotics applications.

DATE 2017 IoT Ten-Cent System-on-Chip Challenge


Call for Posters

This session invites poster submissions on novel systems-on-chips for IoT applications. The IoT space demands both extremely low power (microwatts to nanowatts) and extremely low cost (as low as ten cents). Each poster will explain how their SoC concept meets these requirements for innovative IoT applications. A chip may be designed for any aspect of the IoT ecosystem: nodes, hubs, cloud, etc.
A poster should discuss:

  • The intended applications of the chip and of the IoT system of which it will be a part.
  • Design goals for cost, power/energy consumption, and security.
  • Chip architecture including block diagram.
  • Novel aspects of the design: sensors, power management, communication, security, etc. 
  • Challenges in hardware and software design.

Submissions may be at the concept stage. However, some projects may be at a more advanced stage, in which case the poster can present a more detailed description of the SoC.

Posters will be presented during the interactive presentation part at the IoT Day. Each poster will receive a 1-minute presentation during the session, followed by discussion at the posters. In addition to discussion with DATE attendees, each poster will be visited by the Challenge Committee, which will discuss the proposal with the presenters and provide suggestions. Each poster will be awarded by the Challenge Committee with an award at one of three levels: gold, silver, or bronze.
