001 - General - Some words on the new Structure / Concept

Welcome to the DATE 2020 Conference & Exhibition area as part of the DATE Platform!

To read more about why you should register and what your benefits are, please click here.

A DATE Platform describes the accumulation of Conference & Exhibition, and Exhibitor / Press area for a specific year. As years go by you will have the option of stepping through the past with exactly the same settings (i.e. user rights) as you had in that year.

Per default, the Conference & Exhibition menu item is linked to the current year. When you click on it, the DATE Area block including all items relevant for that year's topic appears on the right-hand side (this also holds for the other left-hand side menu items under DATE Platforms, provided you have been granted the respective rights).

If you visit the DATE web-portal as a guest, you have access to all public news and information. If you register as a website user (it's free) you have also access to more specific news and information, distributed on the basis of granted rights and user roles.

A basic concept of the new web-site is to provide the user with content that can be targeted to the personal needs. When you registered as a user you will notice you personal area (myPage). Your myPage is the space where you can make yourself at home. Contents provided at the DATE web-portal can be filtered to your personal needs via the personal User Profile (please see also WhySpecifyProfile). The DATE web-portal uses the technical user profile to filter the information provided to your personal technical needs (please also see our Privacy Policy).

And, there is no risk involved. As also stated in the Privacy Policy you can change or delete your profile at any time. If you however delete it, we can not restore it since it is physically wiped from the server's database.

So please try out what the new web-portal offers. We further would very much appreciate your input on features and enhancements to understand and serve the needs of the nano-electronic community.

For input, questions, suggestions please contact webmasteratdate-conference [dot] com.

003 - General - What will happen with my data?

DATE uses the provided information to customize the content you see, improve our services, contact you, conduct research, and provide anonymous reporting for internal and external clients.

DATE explicitly does not provide any personal information to an external news provider when you interact with or view a targeted piece of data.
You can edit your DATE profile data at any time. You can delete your DATE profile data at any time. Please note that we can not restore your DATE profile once you have deleted it since all user data is deleted physically.

004 - General - Why should I enter a Profile?

In short: With your technical profile you can filter the content you can see on your MyPage. You can edit your technical profile at any time or switch filtering off.

For more Details please refere to "Why should you specify your technical profile at the DATE web site?"

005 - General - What does the red asterix mean?

When you have to enter information into a field (like in the Contact Form), the red asterisk indicates that these fields are mandatory.

006 - General - On the old webpage I could not properly subscribe or unsubscribe from DATE emails. Is this issue fixed by now?

Yes! When you log-in and navigate to MyAccount you can manage and see your (current) subscriptions. You can subscribe or unsubscribe to newsletters at any time. Furthermore we will provide an unsubscribe-link at the bottom of every email we will send to you.

  • Guidelines for submitting news (format, structure)
  • Guidelines for classifying news topics

101 - Exhibition - How can I get the status of an exhibitor?

You can apply for the exhibitor status while registering for the DATE Web-Portal. You can also >> join << (here) for the Exhibition Area.

Please note that the web-site registration process for exhibitors is monitored, i.e. the Exhibitor Administrator will enable your web account and will send you a registration conformation email. Please note also that you have to be registered with a valid company email address to be approved as Exhibitor.

All members of the exhibition area have access to all the exhibitor related information. When you actually register for the exhibition (i.e. you book your stand area) you get access to additional service like creating your company profile.

Please note that although all exhibitor personal can get registered as exhibitors (we call this 'Authenticated Exhibitors') only one person of your company (probably the Event Manager) can get the status of an exhibitor who is actually registered for the event. Thus, only one person can create, edit and generally maintain the company profile.

201 - Press - Are there any requirements to get access to the Press area?

Yes, there are. As you will receive free access to the DATE Conference and Exhibition as a media representative, there are certain requirements which have to be met.

Please see the DATE Media Qualification Requirements and be prepared to provide proof of your media status according to the document when registering for the Press area.

If you are an accredited journalist and would like to register for DATE please contact the Press Chair directly for approval.
