Dear DATE community,

We, the DATE Sponsors Committee (DSC) and the DATE Executive Committee (DEC), are deeply shocked and saddened by the tragedy currently unfolding in Ukraine, and we would like to express our full solidarity with all the people and families affected by the war.

Our thoughts also go out to everyone in Ukraine and Russia, whether they are directly or indirectly affected by the events, and we extend our deep sympathy.

We condemn Russia’s military action in Ukraine, which violates international law. And we call on the different governments to take immediate action to protect everyone in that country, particularly including its civilian population and people affiliated with its universities.

Now more than ever, our DATE community must promote our societal values (justice, freedom, respect, community, and responsibility) and confront this situation collectively and peacefully to end this nonsense war.

DATE Sponsors and Executive Committees.

DATE 2022 conference – round three for the DATE community to virtually discuss the latest trends in electronic system design and test.

April 2022

After two years of virtual conference editions, DATE had planned a special format for its 2022 edition, aiming at bringing back the community together again, trying to balance the uncertainty of the situation and the desire to be partially back in presence. A special programme has been organized to start the conference with two days in presence, full of outstanding talks and moments to meet and chat. However, the lasting impact of covid-19 infections across Europe and the consequent travelling/quarantine restrictions adopted by authorities still have a strong impact on the health concerns and travelling opportunities for speakers as well as attendees. After thoughtful discussion, the DATE Committees opted to also move DATE 2022 to a completely virtual event.

As the world’s favourite electronic systems design and test conference, DATE provides an international platform to discuss electronic design, automation, and test, from system-level hardware and software implementation right down to integrated circuit design. This year, the conference was held as a virtual live conference from 14 to 23 March 2022 which offered an exciting, wide-ranging technical programme.

To kick off DATE 2022, Valeria Bertacco (University of Michigan, US) invited the audience to look beyond AI and find societal opportunities in the power of hardware design and electronic design automation in her opening keynote talk. Edoardo Charbon (EPFL, CH) focussed his opening keynote on the development of “Cryo-CMOS Quantum Control from a wild idea to working silicon”.

Initially planned to be in person, DATE 2022 dedicated its first two days to the conference’s focus topics “From Quantum to Neuromorphic Computing” and “Interpretable AI and Nanoelectronics-Based Designs of edge computing systems in the IoT 2.0 Era” as well as sessions the special initiative “Autonomous Systems Design.”

In addition to sessions focussing on these topics, three renowned lunch keynote speakers inspired DATE 2022 participants. Silvia Bodoardo (Politecnico di Tornio, IT) discussed how the future of battery technology can contribute to a greener connected world and Georges Gielen (KU Leuven, BE) explored the edge of edge AI. As part of the special initiative “Autonomous Systems Design”, Wolfram Burgard (TU Nuremberg, DE) presented “Probabilistic and deep learning techniques for robot navigation and automated driving” during his lunch keynote talk.

Following the days of the focus topics, 61 technical sessions provided a discussion platform for subjects from the four areas:

D – Design Methods & Tools

A – Application Design

T – Test and Dependability

E – Embedded Systems Design

as well as results and lessons learned from Multi-Partner Projects (MPPs).

The programme was complemented by the Young People Program which offered several initiatives targeting PhD students with the goal of increasing their visibility, establishing contacts, and encouraging discussions about their future perspectives with experts of the field. This included the PhD Forum, where PhD students were able to present their work, the BarCamp – an interactive open research meeting – a sponsorship fair to seek funding for student projects as well as a career fair with panels about career perspectives. Moreover, the University Fair allowed faculties to promote and advertise open positions for prospective PhD students and researchers.

Delegates also experienced six in depth technical tutorials that covered topics such as energy-efficient AI; hyperdimensional computing; inferencing on embedded systems; PDKs for integrated sensor platforms; high level synthesis for data science applications; quantum computing and approximate computing.

Ten workshops finally rounded off the scientific programme, dealing with various hot topics such as 3D integration; European automotive reliability, test and safety; neuromorphic computing, open-source hardware European alliances and iNitiatives; cross-layer algorithm and circuit design; data-driven applications; silicon life cycle management; ferroelectronics; sustainability and security as well as autonomous systems design as part of the special initiative.

Adding to the scientific programme, DATE 2022 considered social discussions by hosting the forum on advancing diversity in EDA (DivEDA) as well as a panel on how post-pandemic conferences will look like.

The DATE Organising Committees would like to thank all speakers, sponsors, and participants for their contribution to yet another unique edition of DATE and are very much looking forward to hosting DATE 2023 as an in-person conference in Antwerp, BE, from 17 to 19 April 2023 to provide networking moments and social activities finally again for the community.

DATE 2022 fully virtual event

DATE 2022: fully virtual event -- ONSITE days moved ONLINE

We have been planning a special format for DATE 2022, aiming at bringing back the community together after two editions online, trying to balance the uncertainty of the situation and the desire to be partially back in presence. A special program has been organized to start the conference with two days in presence, full of outstanding talks and moments to meet and chat.
However, the current situation of the covid-19 infections across Europe and the consequent travelling/quarantine restrictions adopted by governments, companies and institutions have a strong impact on our health concerns and travelling opportunities, for speakers as well as attendees.
The "in presence" experience remains a fundamental aspect of any conference and of DATE in the specific, for its many networking moments, as well as for the social activities, however the safety of the community is once more a priority. Therefore, after thoughtful discussion, the DATE Steering Committee opted to move DATE 2022 to a completely virtual event, moving the program of the first two days online also.

Although there is no way to mitigate the disappointment of not being able to meet in person, we trust the rich and interesting program will bring us together online to comment and contribute to the exciting talks and conversations with the speakers and authors of full DATE 2022 program.

Valeria Bertacco

Valeria Bertacco, University of Michigan Ann Arbor, United States

Abstract

The success of hardware in enabling AI acceleration and broadening its scope has been nothing short of remarkable. How do we use the power of hardware design and electronic design automation to instead make the world a better place? EDA will be the cornerstone of innovative solutions in ensuring data privacy, sustainable computing and taming the data flood.

Opening Keynote: Cryo-CMOS Quantum Control: from a Wild Idea to Working Silicon

Start
Mon, 10:10
Edoardo Charbon

Edoardo Charbon, EPFL, Switzerland

Abstract

The core of a quantum processor is generally an array of qubits that need to be controlled and read out by a classical processor. This processor operates on the qubits with nanosecond latency, several millions of times per second, with tight constraints on noise and power. This is due to the extremely weak signals involved in the process that require highly sensitive circuits and systems, along with very precise timing capability. We advocate the use of CMOS technologies to achieve these goals, whereas the circuits will be operated at deep-cryogenic temperatures. We believe that these circuits, collectively known as cryo-CMOS control, will make future qubit arrays scalable, enabling a faster growth in qubit count. In the lecture, the challenges of designing and operating complex circuits and systems at 4K and below will be outlined, along with preliminary results achieved in the control and read-out of qubits by ad hoc integrated circuits that were optimized to operate at low power in these conditions. The talk will conclude with a perspective on the field and its trends.

Abstract

The quest for energy possibly from renewable sources is rapidly increasing, due to new digital technologies that are taking up more and more space in our lives, electric vehicles expected to replace old combustion ones. However, today’s battery technology is lagging behind adjacent technological advances, with most devices using lithium-ion batteries, that bring with them some concerns and not the least their availability in Europe. To create a European energy platform for the future, bringing together renewable energy sources, electric transportation and a connected Internet of Things, a new solution for battery technology needs to be found. 

This keynote will explore how current challenges can be overcome through the application of advances in new materials, what is Europe doing in the field of batteries, the need of skilled people and how the future of battery technology can contribute to build a better, greener and connected world.

Lunch Keynote Tuesday: AI in the edge; the edge of AI

Start

Georges Gielen, University of Leuven, Belgium

Abstract

In the world of IoT, both humans and objects are continuously connected, collecting and communicating data, in a rising number of applications including industry 4.0, biomedical, environmental monitoring, smart houses and offices. Local computation in the edge has become a necessity to limit data traffic. Additionally embedding AI processing in the edge adds potentially high levels of smart autonomy to these IoT 2.0 systems. Progress in nanoelectronic technology allows to do this in power- and hardware-efficient architectures and designs. This keynote gives an overview of key solutions, but also describes main limitations and risks, exploring the edge of edge AI.

Lunch Keynote Thursday: "Probabilistic and Deep Learning Techniques for Robot Navigation and Automated Driving"

Start
Thu, 13:00
Wolfgang Burgard, Technical University of Nuremberg, Germany

Wolfram Burgard, University of Freiburg, Germany

Abstract

For autonomous robots and automated driving, the capability to robustly perceive environments and execute their actions is the ultimate goal. The key challenge is that no sensors and actuators are perfect, which means that robots and cars need the ability to properly deal with the resulting uncertainty. In this presentation, I will introduce the probabilistic approach to robotics, which provides a rigorous statistical methodology to deal with state estimation problems. I will furthermore discuss how this approach can be extended using state-of-the-art technology from machine learning to deal with complex and changing real-world environments.
