DATE 2021 became a virtual conference due to the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic (click here for more details)

Taking into consideration the continued erratic development of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic and the accompanying restrictions of worldwide travelling as well as the safety and health of the DATE community, the Organizing Committees decided to host DATE 2021 as a virtual conference in early February 2021. Unfortunately, the current situation does not allow a face-to-face conference in Grenoble, France.

The Organizing Committees are working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible.

The Interdisciplinary Centre for Embedded Systems (ESI) combines the expertise in all aspects related to embedded systems design of currently 15 departments of the Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg. ESI functions as a central point of contact for cooperation between companies and research institutes of the FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, allowing  to offer diverse and special expertise in cooperation with companies of various sectors. ESI functions as a central point of contact for cooperation between companies and research institutes of the FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg in the Emdedded Systems Domain.

Along with basic research, practical user knowledge is essential to successfully developed  embedded systems. The Fraunhofer Institute for Integrated Circuits (IIS) is well-known for its knowledge in applied research. The ESI Application Centre builds a bridge between basic research of the FAU and applied research knowledge of the Fraunhofer IIS to master the complexity of future research and innovations.  Our research topics are bundled in the ESI Application Centre in three Labs:

Automation@ESI (Industrial Automation, Industry 4.0)
Automotive@ESI (Sensors and driver assistence systems)
Fitness@ESI (wireless sensors and training assistence)

The ESI Application Centre offers:
