Save the Date 14 to 23 March 2022

DATE is pleased to present a special hybrid format for its 2022 event, as the situation related to COVID-19 is improving but safety measures and restrictions will remain uncertain for the upcoming months across Europe and worldwide. In transition towards a future post-pandemic event again, DATE 2022 will host a two-day live event in presence in the city of Antwerp (just north of Brussels in Belgium), to bring the community together again, followed by other activities carried out entirely online in the subsequent days. This setup combines the in-presence experience with the opportunities of on-line activities, fostering the networking and social interactions around an interesting program of selected talks and panels on emerging topics to complement the traditional DATE high-quality scientific, technical and educational activities.

Tutorials

DATE 2022 tutorials are designed to provide audiences with introductions to important topics in DATE technical areas as well as hands-on tutorials on design automation tools. Early career professionals as well as graduate students will benefit from the introductory-level material on these important topics and tools. Mid-career professionals can also benefit from the tutorials to extend their horizons. We welcome submissions for tutorial presentations in DATE technical areas.

Technical tutorials on selected topics will be given by leading experts in their respective fields. The submission should motivate the topic and its relevance for both academia and industry, specify whether it covers foundational topics or cutting-edge ones, describe the target audience (expected type of attendees? expected number? match with typical DATE audience?), the reason for a tutorial (why a tutorial, why now). Hands-on tutorials are welcomed. Moreover, the submission should include a brief abstract with a list of learning objectives, and a clear planning hereto (organisation in sessions, possible speakers, what will be done to attract the audience), and the DATE Topic to which it is more closely related. A tutorial submission example is available on the DATE website. We target few top-quality well-attended tutorials. In particular, we look for hands-on and tutorials on fundamentals which should clearly identified in the proposal. Extended conference talks will not be accepted as tutorials. Marketing of company tools are not accepted either.

A tutorial submission example is available here for download. Submissions must be submitted before Friday, 01 October 2021 via the DATE website.

Submissions of all tutorials need to be made on-line via the following URL:

In case of acceptance, final information about the tutorial structure (confirmed speakers, final abstract, final agenda) must be provided by Monday, 13 December 2021. Tutorial 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 Sunday, 20 February 2022. The hand-out material will be available to tutorial attendees only!
