Friday Workshops

Printer-friendly version PDF version

The DATE Friday’s Workshops initiative was first introduced in 2003 and, since then, the workshops topics have diversified and the participation has increased to over 280 researchers and designers, attending eight workshops at DATE 2012.

This initiative has now become an integral part of the conference, offering workshops on current and emerging important issues in design, test, EDA and software, to complement the regular conference programme running throughout the week. They provide a unique opportunity for the various research and design communities to spend a day discussing the latest and the best outcomes, sharing their experiences and visions.

The Friday's Workshops programme for DATE 2013 includes nine workshop themes, ranging from embedded systems to 3D integration. The broad embedded systems field, of growing interest to the DATE community, is covered by three workshops focused on embedded parallel computing platforms, platform 2012/STHORM embedded many cores accelerations, and reconfigurable computing. One workshop is focused on methods for system-level design, in particular on the integration of SystemC Design and Verification with AMS and Algorithm Design. Building on the success from the previous four years, the 3D integration workshop covers a broad spectrum of topics from technology and test to chip package and board co-design challenges. For attendees interested in the reliability and resilient design through software approaches, two workshops will discuss the lessons learned from large multi-institutional research programs. For the first time at DATE, the workshop entitled Neuromorphic and Brain-Based Computing Systems is proposed to discuss new/emerging areas relevant to the electronic design automation community. Finally a workshop focusing on Industry-Driven Approaches for Cost-effective Certification of Safety-Critical, Mixed-Criticality Systems (WICERT) aims at gathering a strong industrial community to discuss and evaluate new HW/SW architectures and mechanisms and safety guidelines to achieve a more cost-effective, precise, and scalable certification.

Friday’s Workshops attendees should choose in advance one workshop among W1, W2, W3, W4, W5, W6, W7, W8 or W9. The workshops run from 08:15 until 17:00. The individual timetables for each workshop may vary, and for the detailed version of the workshop programmes, visit the following workshop pages.
