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.

EVEREST is a novel H2020 project that aims at developing a holistic design environment to simplify the programmability of High Performance Big Data analytics for FPGA-based, distributed, scalable, and secure architectures. EVEREST uses a “data-driven” design approach with domain-specific language extensions, hardware-accelerated AI with the use of high-level synthesis, and an efficient monitoring of the execution with a unified hardware/software paradigm.
EVEREST consortium includes ten partners: three universities (Politecnico di Milano, TU Dresden, and Università della Svizzera italiana), two large companies (IBM and Duferco Energia), three SMEs (Virtual Open System, Numtech, and Sygic), and two non-profit research institutes (CIMA and IT4Innovations), spread around six different countries across Europe (Italy, Switzerland, France, Germany, Czech Republic, and Slovakia).
