DATE 2023 - 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 newly introduced unplugged sessions fostering the networking and the exchange of information on relevant issues, recent research outcomes and career opportunities.

DATE 2023 is the 26th 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.

For its 2023 edition, DATE presents itself in a renewed format: After three years of online editions due to COVID-19, DATE 2023 focusses on interaction as well as reinforcing and rebuilding links in the community. Accordingly, we employ some substantial changes to the established format intending for significant added value for in-person participation: Rather than spreading the attendance throughout an entire week, we condense DATE to three days – and make them count! Furthermore, the vast majority of regular papers will be presented in a renewed format of technical sessions focussing on live interactions (in addition to the common full-length presentations available before, during and after the conference by video). 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 research 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 on Human AI-Interaction

Computing systems are increasingly entangled with the physical world, such that keyboards and screens are no longer the only way to communicate between humans and computers. More “natural” ways to communicate such as voice commands, analysis of the environment and imaging are increasingly widespread thanks to the progress of Artificial Intelligence. To further enhance communication and understanding between humans and machines, the next step for computing systems will be to enable more precise evaluation of all implicit communications, including emotions. In exchange, they should provide more natural, human-like responses, in a trustworthy way. The goal of this special day on Human AI-interaction is to show the latest developments in this field, including “emotional systems” but also to present the corresponding ethical aspects.

Special Day on Personalised Medicine

Personalised medicine is a new frontier for healthcare combining genomics, big data analytics and population health. The field aims to improve diagnosis and tailor treatment to the individual patient’s biological and clinical profile, as well as supporting individual preventive healthcare decisions to increase quality of life. These profiles are obtained through biomarkers, which are objectively measured indicators of normal and pathogenic biological processes and of pharmacological responses to medical treatments. Biomarkers can be retrieved through intelligent wearable or insideable computing devices, continuously monitoring bio-signals (electrical, temperature, pressure, etc.), behavioural patterns and in-device processing of body fluids (biological samples). Together with biomarkers from genomic data, this can be used to get a much more finely grained picture of the health condition of an individual. The emergent field of personalised medicine covers novel approaches and challenges for designing silicon-based AI-equipped ultra-low power computing but has also given rise to a new field of biological computing, based on the ability to engineer biological circuits to monitor and react on biomarkers.

DATE 2023 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.

  • Abstract Submission: Sunday, 06 November 2022 AoE

In cooperation with IEEE Computer Society Test Technology Technical Community (TTTC), IEEE Solid-State Circuits Society (SSCS) and IEEE Computer Society (IEEE CS).


Submission Instructions

All manuscripts for any technical topic of the D, A, T, and E tracks must be submitted for review electronically. To respect the efforts of reviewers and in the interest of fairness to all prospective authors, we require that all submissions follow the formatting and submission rules. Submissions that violate these instructions may not be reviewed, at the discretion of the Programme Chair, in order to maintain a review process that is fair to all authors. The formatting rules are as follows.

The accepted file format is PDF. Any other format and manuscripts received in hard-copy form will not be processed. All submissions require novel and complete research work supported by experimental results.

Submissions must not exceed 6 pages in length, including references. Submission in topic A8 (Industrial Experiences Brief Papers) cannot exceed 2 pages in length and must be industrial-centric on both the content and the majority of authors’ affiliations.

WARNING: It is not possible to modify the list of authors and the order once the paper is submitted and the deadline is expired and if the paper is accepted, this information will be the one used for the final publication.

Reviewing will be double-blind. Therefore, do not include any author names on any submitted documents except in the space provided on the submission form. You must also ensure that the metadata included in the PDF does not give away the authors. If you are improving upon your prior work, refer to your prior work in the third person and include a full citation for the work in the bibliography. For example, if you are building on your own prior work in the papers [1, 2, 3], you would say something like: "While prior work did X, Y, and Z [1, 2, 3], this paper additionally does ..., and is therefore much better.” Do NOT omit or anonymize references for blind review. A detailed description of the IEEE authorship guidelines and responsibilities is available here (https://www.ieee.org/publications/rights/author-rights-responsibilities…).

All papers will be evaluated with regard to their suitability for the conference, originality, and technical soundness. The Programme Committee reserves the right to reorient a submission to an extended abstract.

WARNING: Submissions simultaneously under review or accepted by another conference, symposium, or journal will be rejected. Submissions for which pre-prints are available (e.g., on arXiv) are allowed. Note, however, that the authors are expected to follow all reasonable efforts to ensure that the submission is compliant with the double-blind review process.

Submitted papers may only be published in open access after the DATE 2023 TPC Meeting (Monday, 14 November 2022 AoE).

Multi-Partner Projects

The DATE 2023 programme will include sessions dedicated to multi-partner innovative and highly-tech research projects addressing the DATE 2023 topics. The types of collaboration covered, but not limited to, are EU-funded projects (H2020/Horizon Europe, EIC, ECSEL, PENTA, MSCA ITN, COST, etc.), nationally- and regionally-funded projects, projects funded by the European Space Agency, collaborative research projects funded by industry. Project coordinators and consortia are invited to submit papers presenting concepts, work in progress, or lessons learned from the project. The Multi-Partner Projects session is an excellent opportunity to present your work to the DATE community and increase impact of project’s dissemination and outreach activities.

Contributions must be submitted before Monday, 21 November 2022 AoE (registration of abstracts by Monday, 14 November 2022 AoE) via the DATE submission website https://softconf.com/date23/MPP/. Accepted contributions will be published in the DATE 2023 proceedings and indexed by the databases.
