Call For Papers

The Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD) addresses all aspects of digital system design from embedded and mixed hardware/software system engineering, down to microarchitectures, digital circuits and VLSI techniques. It focuses on advanced circuit and system design and design automation concepts, paradigms, methods and tools, as well as on modern implementation technologies from full custom in nanometer technology nodes to FPGA and to multicore infrastructures. Compiler assisted ASIP, CMP, SMP, SMT, DSP-VLIW, GPU and platform based system design research results are welcome. Design and Verification Languages and Standards, Modeling, High Level Synthesis, Productive Design Technology and Engineering Flows, Efficiency, Density, Signal Integrity, Testability, Timing Analysis and Timing Closure, Power Consumption, Computational Power Speed and Performance, Manufacturability, Cost, Reliability, Error Resilience, Complexity, or Process Variability issues are covered in DSD.
Euromicro was founded in 1973 by Rodnay Zaks and other colleagues shortly after the announcement of the Intel 4004 landmark processor. IEEE Computer Society publishes the DSD Proceedings which are available worldwide through IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

Regular Papers:
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts for review electronically trough the following web page ( or by sending the paper to the Program Chair via email (, only if an unexpected web access problem is encountered) before the deadline for submission.
Each manuscript should include the complete paper text, all illustrations, and references. The manuscript should conform to the required IEEE format: single-spaced, double column, A4/US letter page size, 10-point size Times Roman font, up to 8 pages. In order to conduct a blind review, no indication of the authors' names should appear in the submitted manuscript, references included.
Case Studies and Application Papers:
Submissions can be made which report on state-of-the-art digital systems, digital designs, architectures, design methods and/or tools, and (embedded) applications. Papers discussing lessons learned from practical experience, demanding or new applications, and experimental research are particularly encouraged. Manuscripts may be submitted in the same way as regular papers.
The Program Committee will decide if papers will be accepted for a long presentation (30 minutes), short presentation (15 minutes) or as a poster. For long and short presentations, 8 pages will be assigned in the published proceedings. A poster presentation will be assigned 4 pages. Papers exceeding the page limit will be charged 50 Euro per page in excess. If the paper is accepted, at least one of the authors must pre-register and pay the conference fee before the deadline for submitting the camera-ready paper. Otherwise the paper will not be published in the proceedings.
