49th Design Automation Conference (DAC) Issues Call for Contributions

First deadline: October 19, 2010

LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 30, 2011 — The Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier conference devoted to design and design automation of electronic systems (EDA), is seeking submissions that deal with tools, algorithms, EDA tool usage and design technologies for all aspects of electronic circuit, system, and embedded system and software (ESS), for DAC 2012. DAC 2012 also invites participation in various other EDA-related categories. This includes user track submissions, wild and crazy ideas (WACI) submissions, special session, panel and tutorial proposals and co-located events. The 49th DAC will be held at the Moscone Convention Center in San Francisco, California, from June 3-7, 2012.

At DAC 2011, over 33% of relevant technical content was ESS-related, and DAC 2012 is once again focused on adding a robust embedded systems and software track. Research paper submissions on all aspects of ESS are encouraged.

DAC 2012 has new submission and research manuscript submissions procedures for most categories. Authors are asked to submit their work in two stages. In stage one (abstraction submission), a title, abstract, and a list of all co-authors must be submitted at the DAC submission website. In stage two (manuscript submission), the paper itself is submitted. Authors are responsible for ensuring that their manuscript submission meets all guidelines and that the PDF is readable. To ensure fairness for all submitters, there will be no grace periods to fix a problematic submission.

Submission criteria are outlined briefly below. Complete submission information and topic details can be found at: www.dac.com.

EDA Research Manuscripts

Abstract due 5pm MT November 29, 2011

Manuscript due 5pm MT December 5, 2011

A DAC Research Paper explores a specific technology problem and proposes a complete solution to it, with extensive experimental results. Submission includes a six-page paper and an abstract of approximately 60 words clearly stating the significant contribution, impact, and results of the submission.

Select authors of submitted DAC papers that are not accepted for publication in 2012 will be invited in mid-February 2012 to participate in “Work-in-Progress” (WIP) poster sessions. They will be asked to submit a 100-word summary to publish on the website (and not in the proceedings). The authors also will be given the option to post their poster presentation on dac.com.

Embedded Systems and Software Manuscripts

Abstract due 5pm MT November 29, 2011

Manuscript due 5pm MT December 5, 2012

Authors of Research Papers on all aspects of ESS are specifically encouraged to submit to this focus call. It is possible to choose a second submission category (both from the regular research topics as well as from the focus embedded topics) to accommodate cross-cutting contributions. Submission requirements are the same as for research papers, and authors of papers not accepted again may be invited to participate in poster sessions, as above.

Perspectives Manuscripts (NEW)

Abstract due 5pm MT November 29, 2011

Manuscript due 5pm MT December 5, 2011

This year, DAC will be soliciting a new class of manuscripts that do not necessarily require original research content. The purpose of this category is to provide a forum for valuable but non-traditional content for the DAC program. Submissions in this category are limited to eight pages, will undergo a thorough review process in the appropriate technical subcommittee, and will be integrated within the technical sessions. Accepted manuscripts will be published in the proceedings. Authors must specify their submission as a “Perspective” submission during the abstract submission stage.

Examples for submissions in this category include, but are not limited to:

  • Surveys or historical perspectives on an important problem
  • New problem formulations and benchmarks
  • Critiques of a current subset of CAD literature (e.g., parallel CAD, floorplanning...)
  • Descriptions of new, yet relatively unexplored, CAD problems
  • Commentary on keynote or plenary talks from other EDA conferences that have not been published
  • Visualization of complex design or algorithmic data
  • New design / algorithm quality metrics or quantification methods
  • Applications of EDA algorithms to non-traditional EDA applications
  • Detailed comparisons and analysis of previously published approaches to better quantify value
  • Position manuscripts that present opinions on important problems and how they can be attacked
