Inspire tomorrow’s designs with submissions in EDA, electronic systems and software, intellectual property, IoT, automotive and security
LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — September 27, 2016 — For 54 years, the Design Automation Conference (DAC) has been recognized as the leading-edge conference on research and practice in tools and methodologies for the design and automation of electronic circuits and systems. DAC offers outstanding training, education, exhibits and networking opportunities for a worldwide community of designers, researchers, tool developers and vendors. The Technical Program Committee for DAC 2017 is soliciting high-quality submissions on design research, design practices and design automation for the Research Track, Designer Track and IP Track on the following themes: Electronic Design Automation (EDA), Electronic Systems and Software (ESS), Design, IP, the Internet of Things (IoT), Automotive, and Security. The first deadline is November 15, 2016.
Submissions are also being sought after for special sessions; poster sessions; panels; workshops; work-in-progress and tutorials under the same themes highlighted above. Focused session themes are outlined briefly below. All submission information details can be found at https://dac.com/call-for-contributions.
EDA is becoming ever more important with the continuous scaling of semiconductor devices and the growing complexities of their use in circuits and systems. Demands for lower power, higher reliability and more agile electronic systems raise new challenges to both design and design automation of such systems. For the past five decades, the primary focus of research track at DAC has been to showcase leading-edge research and practice in tools and methodologies for the design of circuits and systems.
In addition to the traditional EDA topics -- ranging from physical design to system architectures -- DAC 2017 will feature high-quality papers on design research, design practices, and design automation for topics including low power, reliability, multicore/application-specific/heterogeneous architectures, 3-D integration, emerging device technologies, design automation of "things,” and their applications. DAC's EDA technical program has been ensuring the best-in-class solutions that promise to advance EDA.
Embedded systems are an increasingly interesting, disruptive, and challenging field for designs ranging from mobile devices to medical devices to industrial and beyond. Embedded software is built into devices that may not necessarily be recognized as computing devices (e.g., thermostats, toys, defibrillators and anti-lock brakes), but that nevertheless control the functionality and perceived quality of these devices. Embedded systems design is the art of choosing and designing the proper combination of hardware and software components to achieve system-level design goals like speed, efficiency, reliability, security and safety. Embedded software is taking a growing role in the final solution.
The Embedded Systems and Software sessions at DAC provide a forum for discussing the challenges of embedded design and an opportunity for leaders in the industry and in academia to come together to exchange ideas and roadmaps for the future of this rapidly expanding area.
Design content will be highlighted in both the Designer Track and the Research Track. We seek high-quality work on design research and design practices for topics including low power, reliability, multicore/application-specific/heterogeneous architectures, 3-D integration, emerging device technologies, design automation of "things,” and their applications.
Design-focused content can either be submitted to the regular Research Track or to the Designer Track. If submitting to the Research Track, the same submission format and review process as for other EDA and ESS areas applies. If submitting to the Designer Track, please follow the format specified by the Designer Track.
Intellectual Property (IP) content will be highlighted in both the IP Track and the regular Research Track.
The IP Track brings together the users and the creators of IP to discuss both the benefits and challenges of using IP to accelerate the development of new electronics devices, as well as improving the quality of the devices. This Track provides educational and networking benefits for IP core designers, users, and IP ecosystem providers from across the globe.
IP-focused content can either be submitted to the regular Research Track or to the IP Track. If submitting to the Research Track, the same submission format and review process as for other EDA and ESS areas applies. If submitting to the IP Track, please follow the format specified by the IP Track.
The Internet of Things (IoT) is the next wave in electronic systems. Its
definition is inherently broad, encompassing everything from industrial
automation to wearable devices to home security. Its components range
from energy harvesters and smart sensors to data centers. What's needed
to design these systems? IoT sessions at DAC aim to cover the entire
spectrum, providing a holistic overview of IoT-related content in
diverse areas, such as EDA methodologies and tools to reduce energy,
lightweight authentication and security approaches, techniques for
assembling needed IP for IoT systems, and methods for managing the
complexity of automotive systems.
