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 Organising 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 Organising Committees are working intensively to create a virtual conference that gives as much of a real conference atmosphere as possible. Industry Partners will soon be informed about virtual exhibition and sponsorship opportunities.

Friday Workshops

DATE 2021 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. 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.
