In preparations for DATE 2021, the Organizing Committees will continue to closely monitor the development of the worldwide Covid-19 situation and adjust the conference format accordingly. Updated information will always be available on this page.

BarCamp @ DATE

To present and discuss ideas and results of the ongoing scientific work, we invite researchers from the areas of electronic design automation (EDA), microelectronics and (embedded) systems design to our open BarCamp event.

The Concept

Letting the participants interactively decide about the agenda, BarCamps are massively relaxing the formal event structures. With nothing but your knowledge, your interest and your willingness to learn and to discuss, you are sufficiently prepared to join any session. Having an own topic, you only need to give a two or three minutes 'session pitch' (some very introductive words about your topic) to propose your topic as a session on its own. During the sessions we interactively explain, discuss and jointly develop the topics from that point of knowledge, where everybody is. Meeting and discussing on a par with each other everyone's individual interests and work can and will benefit from the others:

The BarCamp @ DATE offers exactly this informal, open space to you! You are not only allowed to bring your colleagues, you are even invited to suggest the BarCamp to anyone who might be interested, especially to anyone, who might be helpful for your topic!

This way the BarCamp is shaped by its participants!

You can be one of them!

The organizers

BarCamp @ DATE is organized by Young People Program Chairs of the DATE and is supported by the organizers of the edaBarCamp.

The Rules of a BarCamp

  1. Rule: You do talk about BarCamp.
  2. Rule: You do blog about BarCamp.
  3. Rule: If you want to present, you must write your topic and name in a presentation slot.
  4. Rule: Only three word intros.
