Submission Deadline


ASD 2020  is  the  2nd  international  workshop  on  Autonomous  Systems  Design. It is part of a two-day special initiative at DATE on Autonomous Systems Design.  The  goal of the workshop is to explore recent industrial and academic methods and methodologies in autonomous systems design.

The ASD 2020 workshop has an open call for papers and we invite interested contributors to submit papers to the workshop related, but not limited to, the following areas:

  • Design for autonomous systems including processes, modeling, optimization, verification, validation, and test.
  • Embedded and cyber-physical systems platforms that implement and execute the autonomous system functions including their architectures, hardware, software, and communication.
  • Dependable  systems  design  for  autonomous  systems  including,  but  not  limited  to, functional  safety  concepts,  fail-operational  systems  design,  functional  safety  for  applications with machine learning, safe and secure changes and updates, autonomous systems security.
  • Techniques based on AI and robotics for autonomy.

To emphasize the workshop character, position papers and problem statements elaborating challenges in the design practices are also welcome.  We want to specifically introduce an ”Industrial Challenges” session and also ask for problem demos from industry to be presented in  ASD.  

”Demo  Papers”  as  well  as  ”Industrial  Practice  Papers”  of  2-4  pages  are  hence welcome. 

Accepted papers will be published in collaboration with Dagstuhl’s OpenAccess Series in Informatics (OASIcs), free and open access online proceedings.  The papers will be referenced in major databases such as DBLP.
