Call for Papers: International Workshop on System Level-Design of Automotive Electronics/Software (SLDAES)
June 3rd 2012, San Francisco, USA
in conjunction with 49th Design Automation Conference (DAC) 2012

In the last two decades, in-vehicle electronics and software content have increased at a faster rate than ever to address market demands for increasingly complex customer features (e.g., lane keeping) as well as tighter government regulations (e.g., fuel economy). The entire in-vehicle electronics and software eco-system (industry and academia) has been impacted. The automotive industry has faced design and busi-ness challenges to address the market and government regulations, while maintaining profitability. The challenges include changing supply chain roles (e.g., adding new AUTOSAR software providers), increasing the amount of software integration with several parties involved, and providing the ability to control the system-level requirements in the context of IP-protected/black-box supply chains. While some of these challenges have been addressed in other markets (such as in aerospace and by the EDA/ESL tool industry) in the past, others are quite automotive-specific. Academia has researched and developed methods and tools in this area for many years. Standardization efforts to enable competition on customer features and remove it from infrastructure software and networking have emerged (e.g., FlexRay, AUTOSAR, and ISO26262). Standards can enable re-use of software components, and enable system-level modeling, analysis, simulation, and optimization of hardware and software for in-vehicle architectures prior to the availability of the actual components.

This workshop focuses on the past, present, and potential future landscape of system-level design with emphasis on the potential opportunities for the EDA/ESL industry and academia in providing tool support for modeling, analysis, simulation, and optimization of hardware and software automotive architectures. The workshop will cover the automotive industry requirements, the relationships and similarities with the aerospace industry, as well as the EDA/ESL industry and academia efforts in this area.
The workshop consists of a morning session with invited talks from leading researchers and professionals from academia and industry, and an afternoon session focused on presentations of peer-reviewed papers.

For the afternoon session, we welcome submission of short papers on topics including, but not limited to:
- Automotive industry requirements for system-level design of HW/SW in-vehicle architectures, in-cluding
o Use cases (e.g., Exploration, Verification, Validation, and Testing)
o Design methodologies (e.g., Model-based Design, Platform-based design, and Contract-based design)
o Non-Functional Requirements (e.g., Performance, Safety, Security, and Quality)
o Design Data Management and Variant Management
o Product Line Requirement Engineering and Management
o Model Verification, Validation, and Certification
o Requirement Exchange between suppliers and OEMs
- Relationships between the Automotive and Aerospace industry
- Tool technologies to address the following requirements for automotive electronics
o Modeling, Analysis, Simulation, Emulation, and Synthesis
o Model-Based, Software in the loop, Model in the loop, Target-Code based
- New technologies that hold promise in the area (e.g., Ethernet, DSRC, and Reconfigurable hard-ware), and design flows to exploit these technologies for automotive electronics
- Novel business models/relationships and partnerships with new market entrants such as mobile communications providers, communication infrastructure suppliers, software stack suppliers, and smart phone/application developers in addressing some of the challenges
- Case studies elaborating use/extensions of conventional EDA/ESL design methodologies in the automotive domain

Paper Submission Guidelines:
SLDAES seeks papers which are unpublished and not under submission elsewhere. All papers should be submitted electronically using EasyChair ( Papers must be in PDF format and should include (1) title, (2) authors and affiliation, (3) e-mail address of the contact author. Submissions must be limited to 4 pages, single-spaced, double-column IEEE format with 10-point fonts. All submitted papers will be reviewed. Submissions must cover original research ma-terial, not necessarily fully developed but with innovative and stimulating ideas, concepts, and realizations. Position papers are acceptable, discussing the ideas of the authors with respect to a specific challenging problem. Each accepted paper must be presented in person by one of the authors.

Important Dates:
Submission Deadline: 7th April, 2012
Author Notification: 21st April, 2012
Final Paper Due: 7th May, 2012
