Call for Papers
Embedded Software @ DATE 08
ICM, Munich, Germany
10 - 14 March, 2008
DATE (Design, Automation and Test in Europe, www.date-conference.com) is the leading Euro-
pean event in all aspects of electronic system design automation and test. DATE combines a top
quality world leading conference that selects less than 25% of roughly 1000 submitted papers and
is attended by more than 1200 attendees from all over the world. DATE is also Europe’s leading
commercial exhibition showing the state-of-the-art in design and test tools, methodologies, IP and
design services. Both the conference and the exhibition, together with the many user group meet-
ings, fringe meetings, university booth and social events offer a wide variety of opportunities to
meet and exchange information.
DATE has a tradition to combine high-class contributions to theory and formal methods with pres-
entations of practical applications in one event, thus fostering the interaction of industry and aca-
demia. The exhibition is key to this development as it attracts industrial designers.
Dedicated Embedded Software Track
With its strong background in hardware design and design automation, DATE has started to in-
clude complementary embedded software topics that are closely related to the physical properties
of a system. There are huge benefits in bringing together scientists that work on hardware plat-
forms and design, with others that work on embedded software and applications with strong ties to
physical platform properties.
To emphasize the importance, DATE has established an embedded software track with several
topics putting it at equal level with the traditional hardware and system-oriented tracks. The soft-
ware track follows the same pattern of combining theory and practice that was instrumental to the
success of DATE.
