DATE's Friday’s Workshops initiative started in 2003 and it is now at its thirtyfirst edition, 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's Workshops programme for DATE 2016 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.

“Hardware security” is the main focus of the new edition of the successful workshop TRUDEVICE, where hot topics like hardware trojans in IPs and ICs or fault attack injection, will be covered. The third edition of DUHDe workshop will target “hardware design understanding” through techniques like extraction of high-level properties, reverse engineering or formal methods. Closely related, the second edition of the MiFi workshop will be focused on “practical validation and demonstration of high-level design models” in areas like faithful simulators of entire-systems, platform controlling software, or tools for software analysis and generation. Attendees interested on “optical and photonic interconnects” will have also this year the opportunity to attend OPTICS, where optical switches, networks, protocols, applications and circuits, among other related topics, will be covered. MPSoCs are also be covered in this year's workshops; in particular, IMPAC workshop will deal with the analysability, the predictibility and composability of timing and power in these architectures. “Variability and aging” in silicon systems  will be the main focus of ERMAVSS workshop, where the techniques and issues for early model development will be tackled. The workshop on “Emerging Memory Solutions” will cover recent advances in this attractive field, like 3D memories, TFETs and nanowires in memory designs, or processing in memory. Finally, “adaptive and heterogeneous computing platforms” will be also covered in the first edition of a workshop where resource awareness and application autotuning topics will be discussed.

Friday’s Workshops attendees should choose in advance one workshop among W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, W6, W7 and W8. 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 programmes, visit the workshop webpages.

Registration for the workshops is open from 7:30. Welcome Refreshments are served 7:30 – 8:30 on the conference levels plus on the seminar level.
