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.

Friday Workshops

DATE's Friday’s Workshops initiative started in 2003 fostering a number of workshops on different topics and attracting an audience of both researchers and designers.

The event offers a unique opportunity to present and discuss new and in-progress outcomes, as well as experiences and visions. The topics have been changing during the years, following the trend on current and emerging issues in design, test, software and EDA, taking the floor after the regular conference programme running throughout the week.

The Friday Workshop programme for DATE 2021 is rich and includes eight workshop themes. These cover innovative ideas ranging from design automation to emerging memory solutions, from optical interconnect systems to adaptive and heterogeneous computing.

Friday Workshop attendees should choose in advance one workshop among W01, W02, W03, W04, W05, W06, W07 or W08. The workshops run from 08:30 until 17:00. The individual timetables for each workshop may vary, and for the detailed version of the workshop programme, visit the workshop webpages.

Registration for the workshops is open from 7:30. Welcome Refreshments are served from 7:30 - 8:30.
