‘We prepared a highly scientific technical program in the areas of systems design and test and embedded software for DATE 2010, as we received a record number of submissions. DATE 2010 will also present very strong executive and application tracks.’, says Technical Program Chair Wolfgang Müller, adding, "The importance of DATE as a worldwide indispensable meeting point is demonstrated by the fact that more than 50% of the submissions come from outside Europe.  Asia is becoming very active at DATE, with the biggest-rise submissions coming from China with an increase of 53% and from Japan of 46%".
