DATE2011 is well on track and, against the prevailing trend worldwide, is continuing to see high numbers of submissions for its prestigious conference.

"With nearly 950 submissions we have reached comparable numbers as in the record year of 2010," says DATE`s General Chair Professor Bashir M. Al-Hashimi. "This is a clear sign that our strategy of choosing the key European semiconductor sites of Dresden in 2010 and Grenoble in 2011 as DATE venues is proving a success."

Professor Enrico Macii, Program Chair of DATE 2011, adds: "North America accounts for 28% and ASIA for 22% of the submissions, demonstrating the increasing importance of DATE as the leading event worldwide."

The Opening Keynotes will set the tone for the DATE event. "I am delighted to announce that we have two very distinguished figures giving our Opening Keynotes," says Professor Al-Hashimi. "We look forward to welcoming Jean-Marc Chery, Executive Vice President and Chief Technology Officer, STMicroelectronics, who will provide a perspective on the global microelectronics industry, and Steve Furber, ICL Professor of Computer Engineering, The University of Manchester, who is leading some of the most interesting academic research in our area."

Highlights of the Technical Program are the keynote talks given by outstanding leaders from industry and research. By featuring two Special Days focusing on topics of outstanding importance, DATE 2011 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.
