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.

Multi-Partner Innovative Research Projects

DATE 2021 program will include one or more sessions dedicated to multi-partner innovative and/or highly-technological Research Projects addressing the DATE 2021 topics. This includes:

  • EU-funded Projects
    • H2020
    • ECSEL, PENTA, …
    • European Innovative Training Networks (ITN)
    • COST Actions
    • CleanSkyprojects
  • Country- and Region-funded Projects
  • Projects funded by the European Space Agency
  • Research projects funded by industry

The Proceedings of DATE 2021 will include the papers corresponding to Multi-Partner Innovative Research Projects sessions. Project Coordinators are invited to submit a paper up to six pages in one of the following categories (to be clearly identified in the title or abstract of the paper):

  • Initial stage: projects in early stages can naturally bring less technical content in their submission, yet they can present a concise view of what the technical objectives of the project are, their relevance, the approach authors plan to use to address them, …
  • Intermediate stage: this type of submissions is expected to provide a view of the technical status of the project in terms of achievements, challenges addressed, and open bits until the end of the project.
  • Final stage: This type of submissions should summarize the technical work done in the project and provide insights on the lessons learnt in the project.

Submissions are not blind as authors are required to clarify in the submission the name of their project and the stage in which the project is.

As a rule of thumb, we target papers that present more than ‘project flyers’ and less than specific techniques that can be submitted as regular papers to the main track.

The Multi-Partner Innovative Research Projects session is an excellent opportunity to present your work to the DATE community. It also helps you fulfilling the dissemination and outreach obligations of your project. DATE also offers you the opportunity to reserve private virtual meeting rooms that are ideal to held internal virtual project (fringe) meetings, so you and your project partners can make the most of your week at DATE.

Papers will be peer-reviewed and selected based on innovation and originality; in particular, we would like to give visibility to papers addressing DATE 2021 topics.

Accepted papers will be presented online via the DATE 2021 virtual conference system

  • One registration to the DATE 2021 conference is required for each accepted paper.
  • Each accepted papers is required to register a project booth in the DATE 2021 (virtual) exhibition area.

Multi-Partner Innovative Research Projects papers must be submitted before Monday, 02 November 2020 23:59:59 AoE. Submissions need to be made on-line via the DATE 2021 website:
