Friday Workshops

Printer-friendly version PDF version


Proposals for Friday Workshops on emerging research and application topics are invited. Particularly suitable topics are those not directly covered in the technical program and which have the potential to impact on future DATE technical areas in design and test of microelectronic systems.

A short Workshop proposal no longer than two (2) pages should include the following.

  • Workshop title and a clear description of its unique focus; outline the potential of the Workshop for growing and/or consolidating a community, as well as its relevance to the DATE conference;
  • Biography for each organizer, including the relevant recent activity to the topic of the Workshop;
  • Estimate for the target number of participants, by considering the fact that a successful event attracts both academic and industrial attendees; if there were any prior editions of the Workshop, provide a brief summary of its highlights and its past attendance;
  • Tentative format for the event, including: special sessions (e.g., invited talks, panels, embedded tutorials), regular sessions or poster sessions; note, the duration of a DATE Workshop is typically from 8:30am to 4:30pm, including an one-hour lunch break and two half-hour coffee breaks;
  • Focus for each special session together with the names/affiliations of the potential speakers;
  • If an open Call for Submissions will be circulated for regular and poster sessions, then the tentative schedule for the program preparation should be included (e.g., submission deadline, notification deadline).

Prepare a PDF file based on the available template (download here) with the Workshop Proposal and submit before Sunday, September 10, 2017 23:59:59 CET using the following link:

The submitter of a submitted Friday Workshop proposal will be notified of acceptance or rejection of his/her proposal by Saturday, September 30, 2017. In case of acceptance, the advance program of the Workshop must be finalized before Thursday, November 30, 2017 23:59:59 CET, for inclusion in the DATE Advance Program booklet. Workshop hand-out material (consisting of all slides and perhaps also background reading material) needs to be uploaded as a single PDF or ZIP file at the DATE website by Wednesday, February 28, 2018. The hand-out material will be available to workshop attendees only!

All workshop attendees (including speakers) are required to pay the workshop registration. Each workshop receives 3 free registrations. If a workshop receives more than 50 paid registrations two additional free registrations will be granted.
