DATE 2018 in Dresden highlights: Future and Emerging Technologies and Designing Autonomous Systems

2018-03-06

On March 19, DATE 2018 opens the doors to the 21st DATE conference at the International Congress Center in Dresden, Germany.

The 21st DATE conference and exhibition takes place in Dresden for the fifth time - bringing together designers and design automation users, researchers and vendors, as well as specialists in the hardware and software design, test and manufacturing of electronic circuits and systems. DATE puts strong emphasis on ICs/SoCs, reconfigurable hardware and embedded systems, including embedded software.

DATE 2018 takes place at the International Congress Center Dresden, Germany, from March 19 – 23, 2018, and is chaired by Professor Jan Madsen, Technical University Denmark, DK.

On the first day of the DATE event, four in-depth technical tutorials on the four main topics of DATE as well as three industry hands-on tutorials are given by leading experts in their respective fields. Technical topics covered are emerging technologies for computing, industrial internet-of-things (IoT), reliability from physics to CAD, virtual prototyping and low-power design, as well as industrial topics on building ARM powered IoT, computer vision for automated driving in MATLAB, and how to implement domain-specific modeling languages.

Also on Monday, DATE hosts the first edition of a new forum, “Advancing Diversity in Electronic Design Automation (DivEDA)”, which aims to increase the number and visibility of women and underrepresented minorities in the research community.

The plenary keynote speakers on Tuesday are Prof. Amnon Shashua, CEO & CTO of Mobileye, an Intel company, and Senior Vice President, Intel Corporation, whose talk is about “The Responsibility Sensitive Safety (RSS) Formal Model toward Safety Guarantees for Autonomous Vehicles” and Dr. Christopher Voigt, Professor of Biological Engineering at MIT, to talk about “Programming Living Cells: Design Automation to Map Circuits to DNA”. On the same day, the Executive Track offers a series of business panels with executive speakers from companies leading the design and automation industry, discussing hot topics.

The main conference programme from Tuesday to Thursday includes 79 technical sessions organized in parallel tracks from the four areas;

  • D – Design Methods & Tools
  • A – Application Design
  • T – Test, Reliability, and Robustness
  • E – Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems

and from several special sessions on hot topics, such as, emerging technologies, low power challenges and approximate computing for IoT devices, security-aware design in cyber-physical systems, new benchmarking methods and applications for emerging devices, circuits, and architectures, methodologies to design and manage exascale computing system technologies, as well as results and lessons learned from European projects.

Two Special Days in the programme focus on areas bringing new challenges to the system design community: Future and Emerging Technologies and Designing Autonomous Systems. Each of the Special Days has a full programme of keynotes, panels, tutorials and technical presentations.

During the Special Day on "Future and Emerging Technologies" on Wednesday, a keynote is given by Prof. Jelena Vuckovic from Stanford University, on “From Inverse Design to Implementation of Robust and Efficient Photonics for Computing“. On Thursday in the frame of the Special Day on "Designing Autonomous Systems", Thomas Form, Head of Electronics and Vehicle Research, Volkswagen AG, and coordinator of the Pegasus research project on safety of automated driving gives a talk about “Autonomous Driving: Ready to Market? Which are the Remaining Top Challenges?”.

On Friday, 6 full-day workshops will be given, covering a large number of hot topics like Software for IoT, Emerging Memories and Interconnections, and New Platforms for Future Cars.

The full conference programme is available online:

In addition, there is a presentation theatre as part of the exhibition (Tuesday – Thursday) with 28 presentations in six exhibition workshops. The programme highlights visionary talks from industrial leaders, tutorials, and best practice presentations. With workshops on autonomous driving and on functional safety, the application field of “automotive” is featured, along with a workshop on leading edge designs in the fields of IoT, RF and mobility using the technology 22FDX. There are also workshops on FPGA and SoC system development, secure IoT systems, and on enabling ICT innovations for SMEs.

Entrance to the exhibition is free of charge. All exhibition theatre sessions (in the Exhibition Theatre, located in the exhibition area) can be visited with a free-of-charge exhibition visitor registration; a conference registration is not required.

Detailed information on the Exhibition Theatre sessions is available online:

University Booth

Another hot-spot in the exhibition is the University Booth where leading universities and research institutes present their latest research results with hardware and software demonstrators. With various sessions and presentations running in parallel, the University Booth is a unique place showcasing a large number of innovations covering EDA, design and test which will shape and revolutionize the way we design products in the future.

DATE 2018 takes place at the International Congress Center in Dresden, Germany

The International Congress Center Dresden is directly located on the banks of the river Elbe with a spectacular view at the historic city centre. It is characterized by its modern architecture, easily accessible from Dresden Airport by public transport and within walking distance to downtown Dresden and all famous sights.

The Saxon state capital Dresden is beautifully located in the picturesque environment of the river Elbe valley in the eastern part of Germany. It belongs to the Saxon Triangle metropolitan area with around 2.4 million inhabitants. The city possesses a rich cultural life with plenty of popular sights such as the rebuilt Frauenkirche, combining both a unique baroque flair and a modern vivid spirit. It is well-known as popular tourist destination with short walking distances, but moreover recognized for its cutting-edge technology and economy sector in Germany and abroad. With more than 46 research institutes, various universities, and numerous non-university research organizations, Dresden is an important centre of science. The Dresden University of Technology is one of the 10 largest universities in Germany and part of the German Universities Excellence Initiative. Silicon Saxony is one of Europe’s most successful trade association for the semiconductor, electronic, microsystems and software industries, with more than 300 members. DATE is cooperating closely with Silicon Saxony to maximize quality visitor attendance to the show and increase visibility of the conference in the region. Dresden therefore provides an excellent venue for hosting DATE 2018.

DATE Party – Networking Event

The highlight of the DATE week is again the DATE Party, which offers the perfect occasion to meet friends and colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere while enjoying local amenities. Hence, the party is one of the main networking opportunities during the DATE week. The party is scheduled on March 21, 2018, from 1900 to 2300, and takes place in one of Dresden’s most recognized museum locations, the Deutsches Hygiene-Museum Dresden. The museum was founded in 1912 and unlike its traditional name, the museum today offers not just hygiene in the medical or colloquial way, also a permanent collection “Adventure Human Being” showing how people shape their environment and affect society as physical and intellectual beings, as well as how they are influenced by the environment and society.

All delegates, exhibitors and their guests are invited to attend the party. Please note that entrance is only possible with a valid party ticket.
