DATE Receives Record Submissions for Electronic Systems Design Show

12/6/2004 - DATE, Europe's premier conference and exhibition for Electronic Design, Automation and Test, has received all-time record submissions to the conference programme.

For the 2005 event, which takes place in Munich at ICM, from March 7th to 11th, 825 submissions were received for review to the 342 members of the Technical Programme Committee, chaired by Prof. Luca BENINI of the Università di Bologna, Italy.

The number of papers submitted has again increased over DATE 04 and is the highest number of papers ever submitted to an electronic design conference anywhere in the world. DATE is a truly international event, and it received submissions from the five continents and more than thirty countries.

One of the main strengths of the conference is a wide but high quality coverage of design, design automation and test topics. This year, for the first time, a complete embedded software track is offered to allow for the increasing importance of software in embedded systems. Compared with previous years, submissions in design, test and embedded software have grown significantly, showing a clear trend toward a holistic view and a comprehensive system design focus. DATE continues its tradition of grouping presentations and activities related to special themes on specific focus days.

Special Focus Topics

The science of biotechnology is assumed to have revolutionary potential. In fact, the more we find out about biochemical functions of cells, genes and proteins in the human body, the easier it is to efficiently diagnose diseases, individually administer medication based on the patient’s genetic disposition, or to carry out simple tests for allergens by simply performing biochemical analyses. While, today, the substrate of such microarrays is usually made of glass or plastics specifically designed for optical detection of the sensor events, the approach of combining biology with semiconductor chips opens up new dimensions in the biochip field.
The Special Day on Biochips of DATE 2005 gives a comprehensive overview about this emerging topic for the semiconductor industry organised in a full-day track of two invited sessions, a lunchtime keynote and one regular session.
The automotive electronics system of a modern luxury car today is a highly distributed, real-time system consisting of up to 100 electronic control units connected by several bus systems, carrying more than 100 MB of embedded code and providing functions like powertrain and chassis control, energy management, driver information and entertainment. The tremendous growth over the last ten years offers challenges on meeting quality, time to market and cost targets. The special day combines special sessions and technical papers that present both challenges and solutions in the design of automotive EE architectures and system design process.
Executive Track
DATE 05 will again host an Executive Track of presentations by company CEOs, CTOs, VPs and other senior executives from CAD vendors, IP suppliers, semiconductor and system houses. The Executive Track takes place on Tuesday, March 8th.
