DATE 2010

DATE 2010 Advance Programme is Available


A full technical programme for DATE 2010, the major global event in Europe which is set to shape the future of the worldwide electronics industry, is now available at:

The conference will take place at the ICC in Dresden, Germany from 8-12 March 2010. Dresden, is well-known for its Elbe Valley and its numerous monuments from the 16th to 20th centuries and is the home of Silicon Saxony, Europe’s largest network in the semiconductor, electronics, and microsystems industry.

‘With a record number of submissions from six different continents DATE 2010 offers an outstanding technical programme of 77 technical sessions including 12 special sessions such as panels and hot topic sessions. The programme features the most recent industrial trends and new research findings which will have a significant impact on the future of the electronics industry and academic research.’, says Wolfgang Müller, DATE’10 Technical Programme Chair.

DATE 2010 begins on Monday 8 March with one full day of tutorials and ends on Friday 12 March with workshops on current and emerging issues in electronic systems design, test, and embedded software. Monday tutorials provide wide choice of topics including life sciences and biometrics applications, nanoscale test, 3D integration, asynchronous systems, low power, ESL verification, SystemC AMS, and AUTOSAR.

Tuesday opening keynotes are delivered by Alberto Sangiovanni-Vincentelli, U.C. Berkeley and Cadence Design Systems, USA, and Hermann Eul, Executive Vice President Infineon and University of Hannover, Germany. These events will set the focus on complex systems and wireless communication providing an outlook beyond the current market conditions.

The second highlight on Tuesday is the executive track which will feature business panels with executive-level speakers from leading companies such as AMD, Intel, IBM, Infineon, TI, TSMC - to mention but a few.

Two special days on Wednesday and Thursday are dedicated to two major domains: Cool Electronic Systems and Nanoelectronics with keynotes by Mark Horowitz (Stanford University) and Dimitris Antoniadis (MIT). A unique feature of DATE is the continuation of linking new research findings to applications with a dedicated user-oriented application track over three days.

DATE’s Friday Workshops programme includes six workshop themes ranging from technology to architecture to embedded software: 3D integration, process variability, silicon debugging, multi/many-core parallel platforms, reconfigurable computing and model-based engineering.

DATE’10 will also boost two new exhibition initiatives which will be open to conference delegates as well as to exhibition visitors. Tool vendors such as Synopsys, Mentor Graphics and Cadence will organise half-day tool seminars and European vendors will join forces at the EDA village.

‘Strengthening the link between research, innovation and applications is what is needed in these times more than ever. DATE’10 will be THE event where you meet leading experts from Universities and industry.’, says Prof. Giovanni De Micheli, DATE’10 General Chair.
