DATE 2020 (virtual) conference – a one of a kind DATE edition with high-quality presentations to be enjoyed by a great number of participants worldwide from home!

The DATE 2020 Conference and Exhibition was initially planned to take place in Grenoble, France from 9 to 13 March 2020. Due to the growing impact of the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic, the Organising Committees decided to transform the physical event in Grenoble to a virtual event online – an effectful decision which received great support from speakers who contributed presentations of high-quality on short notice to make sure that if participants cannot come to DATE, DATE comes to participants.

DATE combines the world’s favourite electronic systems design and test conference with an international exhibition for electronic design, automation and test, from system-level hardware and software implementation right down to integrated circuit design. This year, the conference was held as a virtual event from April to June 2020.

The virtual event mostly followed the initially planned programme of the physical event. Solely the seven in-depth technical tutorials could not be realised via the online platform.

The virtual Opening Ceremony of DATE 2020 included the first plenary keynote lecture by Luca Benini, ETH Zurich (Switzerland), who provided his presentation on the topic of “Open Parallel Ultra-Low Power Platforms for Extreme Edge AI”.

Catherine Schuman, Oak Ridge National Laboratory (US) focussed her Tuesday Lunchtime Keynote on Neuromorphic Computing and allowed participants to inspect challenges in that area also in relation to challenges in systems design.

The main conference programme from Tuesday to Thursday included 58 technical sessions organized in parallel tracks from the four areas

D – Design Methods & Tools

A – Application Design

T – Test and Dependability

E – Embedded and Cyber-physical Systems

DATE 2020 in Grenoble: Highlighting Embedded AI and Silicon Photonics

For the 23rd year in a row, DATE has prepared an exciting technical programme. With the help of the 328 members of the Technical Programme Committee, who carried out 3014 reviews (mostly four reviews per submission), 196 papers (26%) were finally selected for regular presentation and 82 additional ones (cumulatively 37%, including all papers) for interactive presentation.

DATE 2020 programme will include five keynote talks. Two visionary talks will be given during the opening ceremony: one from Philippe Magarshack, Corporate Vice President at ST Microelectronics, and one from Luca Benini, chair of digital Circuits and Systems at ETH Zurich and Professor at University of Bologna. Moreover, three luncheon keynotes will inspire the attendees: on Tuesday, Catherine Schumann from Oak Ridge National Laboratory will talk about neuromorphic computing; on Wednesday, Jim Tung will present Mathworks’ vision on how to leverage Embedded Intelligence in Industry; on Thursday, Joachim Schultze from DZNE will talk about bottlenecks and challenges for HPC in medicinal and genomics research.

The conference programme includes several executive and hot-topic sessions, addressing Memories for Emerging Applications, Architectures for Emerging Technologies (Quantum Computing, Edge Computing, Neural Algorithms, In-Memory Computing, Bio-Inspired Adaptive Hardware), Hardware Security, 3D Integration and Logic Reasoning for Functional ECO.
