DATE 2014 Event Highlights System-Level Design and Advancing Electronics Beyond CMOS


DATE 2014 opens doors on March 24 at the International Congress Center Dresden, Germany

With System Level Design and Advancing Electronics beyond CMOS, the two Special Days in the programme will focus on areas bringing new challenges to the system design community. Each of the Special Days will have a full programme of keynotes, panels, tutorials and technical presentations.
The conference will be opened by the plenary keynote speakers David Fuller, Vice President of Application and Embedded Software for National Instruments, who will talk about “System Design Challenges for Next Generation Wireless and Embedded Systems” and Gerd Teepe, Director Design Engineering at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in Dresden, to talk about “The Growing Importance of Microelectronics from a Foundry Perspective”.
On the same day, the Executive Track offers a series of business panels discussing hot topics. Executive speakers from Synopsis, Cadence, IBM, IMEC, TSMC Europe, Mentor Graphics and many other companies leading the design and automation industry will address some of the complexity issues in electronics design and discuss about the advanced technology challenges and opportunities.

Record number of submissions for DATE 2014, highlighting Test, Security, Electronics Beyond CMOS and System-Level Design


DATE 2014 receives 1090 paper submissions; an all-time high for DATE and an 8% increase over DATE 2013.

DATE is truly an international conference. Besides the large share (46%) of submissions coming from Europe, 23% of submissions are from North- America, 27% from Asia, and 4% from the rest of the world. This clearly demonstrates DATE’s global reach and impact.

The most successful topics were: “Architectural and Microarchitectural Design” in the Design Methods and Tools Track, “Secure Systems” in the Application Design Track, “On-Line Test, Fault Tolerance and Reliable System Design” in the Test and Reliability Track and “Real-time, Networked, and Dependable Systems” in the Embedded Systems Software Track.

For the 17th successive year DATE has prepared an exciting technical program. With the help of 339 members of the Technical Program Committee who carried out 3620 reviews (more than four per submission), finally 206 (=23.1%) papers were selected for regular presentation and 107 (= 12.0%) for interactive presentation.

Call for Papers

DATE is a leading international event and unique networking opportunity for design and engineering of Systems-on-Chip, Systems-on-Board and Embedded Systems Software. Since the selection of venues Dresden (2010-2012) and Grenoble (2011-2013) has been a great success, the conference comes back to Dresden for DATE 2014.

DATE 2014 will take place at the International Congress Center Dresden, Germany, from 24-28 March 2014. Dresden, located in Germany, and is a leading key semiconductor site in Europe. It concentrates expertise on research, development and manufacturing of leading-edge technologies in order to drive semiconductor industry at the top. Major players are e.g. the Technical University which has recently succeeded in the German Excellence Initiative, GLOBALFOUNDRIES and Infineon. The cooperation among all these players has evolved Silicon Saxony, a collaborative association with around 300 companies (40,000 employees) that represents the largest center of microelectronics in Europe. Dresden, the “City of Science”, has 11 Fraunhofer institutes, including Fraunhofer Center for Nanoelectronic Technologies (CNT), the IFW, the HZDR and further research institutes devoted to semiconductors.

DATE 2014 Exhibition Theatre features Hot Topics, best practice and panels


As special feature for Exhibition visitors DATE 2014 offers in the Exhibition Theatre, located in the midst of the Exhibition area, three days of high quality program free of charge. This program provides best practice on design for various fields of applications, a special selection of the conference program with special Hot Topics and tutorials sessions and panel sessions with industry leaders.
