As DATE’s new concept of choosing the vibrant European clusters Dresden (2010) and Grenoble (2011) as new venues was a huge success and resulted in major growth especially in the Exhibition, DATE has decided to come back to Dresden for DATE 2012.
“Dresden as one of European centers for microelectronics is an ideal location for DATE 2012” said Professor Wolfgang Rosenstiel and General Chair for the next DATE. “The International Congress Center Dresden provides excellent facilities for the conference and the exhibition and is even very close to the historical centre of the famous city of Dresden.”
Deadline for the submission of papers for DATE’s world-leading conference is 11 September 2011.
The Call for Papers shows the wide scope of technical contributions, covering design and test of electronic and embedded systems as well as its broad range of applications. “The technical program will consolidate the leading role of DATE in the area of design automation, test and embedded systems”, says Program Chair Lothar Thiele, Professor at ETH Zürich.
By featuring two Special Days focusing on topics of outstanding importance, DATE 2012 will also provide important direction to key players in the semiconductor industry and academic research. Each of the Special Days will have a full program of keynotes, panels, tutorials and technical presentations.
Special Day on More than Moore
“More-than-Moore is gaining importance and momentum as non-digital functions add more and more value in the packaged system,” stresses CEA-Leti’s Michel Brillouët, chair of this Special Day. “The unique feature of this domain compared to scaled CMOS is that the technologies can’t be separated from their applications or markets. Furthermore the design and test of such heterogeneous systems bring specific challenges which will be detailed. This Special Day will start with a broad overview of the More-than-Moore field, followed by dedicated talks on specific technologies including ams-rf, power and 3D integration and on applications such as energy and healthcare.”
Special Day on E-Mobility
The E-Mobility Special Day will take up the latest trend towards hybrid and fully electric vehicles by discussing upcoming issues to be addressed by the design automation, microelectronics and embedded system communities. “The major challenges for e-mobility are the strong requirements for the electronic systems inside an electric vehicle”, says General Chair Wolfgang Rosenstiel, Professor at University of Tübingen. Important topics for this special day are among many others control and operation strategies to optimise energy consumption and recovery, electromagnetic interference due to high and low voltage electronics, and efficient vehicle to grid solutions with smart recharging capabilities.
Industry, research and clusters in partnership
“With its outstanding combination of industrial tutorials, panel discussions of industry leaders, leading edge scientific conference, numerous workshops and a reinforced Exhibition presenting EDA vendors, foundries, innovative start-ups as well as collaborative research projects, DATE is truly bringing together industry and research in partnership”, says Juergen Haase, Exhibition Program Chair and Managing Director of edacentrum, adding: “DATE 2012 will go even further and feature special activities to highlight the intensive collaboration between the Grenoble and Dresden clusters and to initiate new initiatives.”
