19th Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD 2016)

Aug. 31st - Sept. 2nd, 2016, St. Raphael Resort, Limassol, Cyprus

*** Submission Deadline (firm): April 24, 2016 ***

Collocated with the 42nd Euromicro Conference on Software Engineering
and Advanced Applications (SEAA 2016)


The Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD) addresses all
aspects of (embedded, pervasive and high-performance) digital and mixed
HW/SW system engineering, covering the whole design trajectory from
specification down to micro-architectures, digital circuits and VLSI
implementations. It is a forum for researchers and engineers from academia
and industry working on advanced investigations, developments and

It focuses on today's and future challenges of advanced system architectures
for embedded and high-performance HW/SW systems, application analysis
and parallelization, design automation for all design levels, as well as, on
modern implementation technologies from full custom in nanometer
technology nodes, through FPGAs, to multi-core infrastructures. It covers a
multitude of highly relevant design aspects from system, hardware and
embedded-software specification, modeling, analysis, synthesis and
validation, through system adaptability, security, dependability and fault
tolerance, to system energy consumption minimization and multi-objective

Authors are kindly invited to submit their work according (but not limited)
to the seven main topics of the conference main track. In addition, eight
Special Sessions (with their own coordinators and subprogram committees)
do also welcome contributions in specific themes of particular interest.
All papers are reviewed following guidelines, quality requirements and
thresholds that are common to all committees.
