Call For Papers

Call for Papers DSD 2016 Main Track

The Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD) addresses all aspects of (embedded, pervasive and high-performance) digital and mixed hardware/software system engineering, down to microarchitectures, digital circuits and VLSI techniques. It is a discussion forum for researchers and engineers from academia and industry working on state-of-the-art investigations, development and applications.

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 optimization.

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.
