DATE 2024 - Call for Papers

The DATE conference is the main European event bringing together designers and design automation users, researchers and vendors as well as specialists in the hardware and software design, test and manufacturing of electronic circuits and systems. DATE puts a strong emphasis on both technology and systems, covering ICs/SoCs, reconfigurable hardware and embedded systems as well as embedded software.

The three-day event consists of a conference with regular papers, late breaking results papers and extended abstracts, complemented by timely keynotes, special days, focus sessions, embedded tutorials, half-day workshops and multi-partner project sessions. The event will also host the Young People Programme and unplugged sessions fostering the networking and the exchange of information on relevant issues, recent research outcomes and career opportunities.

DATE 2024 is the 27th edition of an event that has always been the place for researchers, young professionals and industrial partners to meet, present their research and discuss the current development and next trends, with high emphasis on social interaction.
DATE 2024 adopts the renewed format that was introduced in 2023. This means that DATE 2024 again uses an intensive three-day format, focussing on interaction as well as further strengthening the community. The vast majority of regular papers will be presented in technical sessions using short flash-presentations, where the emphasis is on poster-supported live interactions (in addition to the common full-length presentation videos available before, during and after the conference). By this, we make sure that the community can actually do what conferences are for: meeting, discussing and exchanging.

The Conference

The conference addresses all aspects of re- search into technologies for electronic and (embedded) systems engineering. It covers the design process, test and tools for design automation of electronic products ranging from integrated circuits to distributed large-scale systems. This includes both hardware and embedded software design issues. The conference scope also includes the elaboration of design requirements and new architectures for challenging application fields such as sustainable computing, Internet of Everything, augmented living, secure systems, healthcare and automotive systems. Engineers, scientists and researchers involved in innovative industrial designs are particularly encouraged to submit papers to foster feedback from design to research.


Special Days on Emerging Topics

The scientific research track is complemented by a set of sessions focussing on emerging topics bringing new challenges to the community, with presentations and interactions on interesting and timely issues.

Special Day "Responsible and Robust AI"

AI models have gained significant prominence across various domains in society, particularly in critical applications such as autonomous vehicles, banking, healthcare, and industry. In order to be practically applicable in embedded systems, designers are required to develop responsible and robust AI. This concept has a profound impact on integrating AI into our everyday products. Firstly, since AI will have control over various functionalities, the models must ensure the system's robustness and security. These requirements are essential to ensure proper operation in the presence of faults or attacks. Secondly, the decisions made by AI can be subject to blame or credit. This aspect necessitates substantial efforts in explainability and fairness, which becomes even more complex when dealing with an embedded systems context, to guarantee the algorithm's expected performance.

Within embedded AI, distributed and dynamic machine learning (ML) algorithms hold great significance for implementation on small devices, introducing additional constraints such as implementation precision and low power consumption. These constraints further contribute to the design of responsible and robust AI.

The objective of this Special Day is to showcase the latest advancements in the design and implementation of new models for responsible AI, considering hardware properties. While there will be a specific focus on "distributed ML", the event may also address societal aspects related to responsible AI.

Special Day "Sustainable Computing"

Energy consumption is a rapidly-increasing concern in the computing ecosystem: as the society relies heavily on computing as a tool for science and engineering, administration, education, and even entertainment, the stark increase in compute-resources demand could make traditional ICT infrastructure unsustainable. Thus, energy efficiency must become a design dimension for computing systems and applications, at all scales. To this end, we must design and deploy sustainable (super)computing systems. Concerted efforts towards sustainable hardware and software systems are the only way to provide energy-efficient algorithms, and thus are mandatory.

Despite the urgency of the problem – also in light of the Europe Green Deal – we lack the methods and tools to build systems that are sustainable by design. We must bring together system designers, tool designers, algorithm designers and domain experts, and policy makers to address the sustainability issues holistically.

DATE 2024 will also host a timely Special Initiative on:

Autonomous Systems Design

Fueled by the progress of Artificial Intelligence, autonomous systems are increasingly becoming integral parts of many Internet-of-Things (IoT) and Cyber-Physical Systems (CPS) applications, such as automated driving, robotics, avionics, industrial automation and smart systems in general. Autonomous systems are self-governed and self-adaptive systems that are designed to operate in an open and evolving environment, which is not completely defined at design time. This poses a unique challenge to the design and verification of dependable autonomous systems. The DATE Special Initiative on Autonomous Systems Design will include peer-reviewed papers, special sessions and interactive sessions addressing these challenges.

Unplugged Sessions

DATE Unplugged Sessions on The Twinning Paradigm - Come join us for stimulating brainstorm discussions in small groups about the future of digital engineering. Our focus will be on the digital twinning paradigm where virtual instances are created of a system as it is operated, maintained, and repaired (e.g., one evolving virtual instance of each individual car realized from a single design model). You will actively engage with peers in a stimulating exchange to investigate how we can take advantage of this paradigm in engineering systems and what new system engineering approaches and architectures (hardware/software) and design workflows are needed and become possible.

Camera-Ready and Presentation

Authors of accepted papers will prepare the camera-ready version of the paper, adhering to the IEEE proceedings format and will be checked through PDFeXpress. A recorded video presentation of the paper is also required, according to guidelines that will be made available. It should be noted that accepted Late Breaking Results papers will be published as submitted and are expected to be camera-ready, i.e., no separate camera-ready submission will be possible.

Registration Rule for All Accepted Papers

Please note that each paper shall be accompanied by at least one full conference registration at the paper author rate (i.e., two paper author registrations are needed for two accepted papers, e.g., from the main author or a co-author of the paper). DATE is a physically held conference, and not a hybrid conference. Therefore, it is mandatory that at least one author of each accepted paper attends the session where the paper is discussed and presents the work, otherwise the paper will be deleted from the proceedings afterwards (despite full payment at the paper author rate).


Focus Sessions

Focus Sessions can take the form of (1) Panels, discussing visionary and controversial issues or (2) Hot-Topic Sessions, focusing on the introduction and discussion of new R&D problems, addressing trends in the technical domains that are of interest to the conference participants.

Focus Session proposals must consist of an extended summary of up to 1,500 words in a PDF file, describing the topic, the authors/speakers and the format and must be submitted at https://softconf.com/date24/focus-session/ by Monday, 02 October 2023 AoE. The submitter of a Focus Session proposal will be notified of acceptance or rejection of his/her proposal by Tuesday, 14 November 2023 AoE. In case of acceptance, contributors of accepted Focus Sessions will be asked to submit final texts or statements of panellists, as appropriate, for publication in the proceedings as final, camera-ready manuscripts by Wednesday, 17 January 2024 AoE. Panel sessions are entitled to one (1) page per panellist in the proceedings; Hot-Topic Sessions are allocated a maximum of six (6) pages paper per speaker or one single paper for the entire session which should not exceed ten (10) pages. As a rule of thumb, no more than four speakers per session should be planned for Hot-Topic Sessions. For the accepted Focus Sessions, it is the responsibility of the Focus Session organiser(s) to ensure that the Wednesday, 17 January 2024 AoE deadline is met and all the camera-ready manuscripts from their respective Focus Sessions are technically sound and meet the editorial standards of the DATE proceedings. The Focus Session Co-Chairs may decline the publication of the final manuscripts in the DATE proceedings if the above responsibility is not fulfilled. Accepted or invited speakers to the Focus Sessions will be required to register for the conference.

Further Instructions for Focus Session Submissions

In addition to the above-stated important instructions, e.g. w.r.t. author list and double submissions, please adhere to the following:

Session Chair/Co-Chair: Every special session submission must name a chair and a co-chair; the chair and the co-chair are responsible for the preparation of the session and for the monitoring of the session; they cannot be selected among the moderators/panelists, or speakers/presenters.

Embedded Tutorials

DATE 2024 tutorial sessions are designed to provide audiences with an introduction to important topics in the DATE technical areas as well as hands-on tutorials on design automation tools. Early career professionals as well as graduate students will benefit from the introductory knowledge about important topics and tools. Mid-career professionals can attend tutorials to extend their horizons. Embedded tutorials will be 90-minute sessions "embedded" within the 3-day programme of DATE. We welcome proposals for tutorial presentations in the DATE technical areas. Proposals need to be submitted online before Monday, 02 October 2023 AoE Friday, 17 November 2023 AoE, via the DATE submission website https://softconf.com/date24/tutorials/.

Technical tutorials on selected topics will be given by leading experts in their respective fields. The submission should motivate the topic and its relevance for both academia and industry, specify whether it covers foundational topics or cutting-edge ones, describe the target audience (expected type of attendees? expected number? match with typical DATE audience?), the reason for a tutorial (why a tutorial, why now). Hands-on tutorials are welcomed. Moreover, the submission should include a brief abstract with a list of learning objectives, and a clear planning hereto (organisation in sessions, possible speakers, what will be done to attract the audience), and the DATE topic to which it is more closely related. We target few top-quality well-attended tutorials. In particular, we look for hands-on and tutorials on fundamentals which should clearly identified in the proposal. Extended conference talks will not be accepted as tutorials. Marketing of company tools are not accepted either.

A tutorial submission example is available here for download.

The tutorial organiser(s) will be notified of acceptance or rejection of submissions by Tuesday, 14 November 2023 AoE Tuesday, 21 November 2023 AoE. In case of acceptance, final information about the tutorial structure (confirmed speakers, final abstract, final agenda) must be provided by Wednesday, 17 January 2024 AoE. Tutorial hand-out material (e.g. consisting of all slides and perhaps also background reading material) needs to be uploaded as a single PDF or ZIP file at the DATE website by Friday, 15 March 2024 AoE. The hand-out material will be available to tutorial attendees only!
