Dear Ladies and Gentlemen,

We would like to announce the conference DATE 2018, which will take place from 19 to 23 March, 2018, at the International Congress Center Dresden, Germany, and will be chaired by Professor Jan Madsen, Technical University of Denmark, DK.
Join us in celebrating another exciting edition of the DATE conference the top scientific event in Design, Automation, and Test of microelectronics and embedded systems for the academic and industrial research communities worldwide!
The Organizing Committee will prepare an exciting and profound conference programme, focusing on areas that are bringing new challenges to the system design community. The DATE conference covers the design process, test, and automation tools for electronics, ranging from integrated circuits to distributed embedded systems. The conference scope includes both hardware and embedded software design issues. It also includes the elaboration of design requirements and new architectures for challenging application fields such as internet of things, multimedia, healthcare, smart energy, and automotive systems.

Topics are arranged according to four tracks:
D Design Methods & Tools
A Application Design
T Test, Reliability, and Robustness
E Embedded and Cyber-physical Systems

Two Special Days in the programme will focus on two areas bringing new challenges to the system design community: "Future and Emerging Technologies" and "Designing Autonomous Systems".
The vivid accompanying exhibition provides a unique networking opportunity for vendors of tools and services for hardware and embedded software for the design, development and test of Systems-on-Chip, IPs, Embedded Systems, ASICs, FPGAs and PCBs. Furthermore, it is a great venue for industry representatives to meet university professors to foster their university programmes and especially for PhD Students to meet their future employers. A full programme in the Exhibition Theatre will again combine presentations by exhibiting companies, best-practice reports by industry leaders on their latest design projects and selected conference special sessions. Additional hot-spots in the exhibition are the University Booth, where the leading universities and research institutes will present their latest research results with hardware and software demonstrators, as well as the dedicated European Projects Booth and the Exhibition Campus.
The whole DATE Executive Committee cordially invites you to join us at this occasion and warmly welcomes all paper submissions for standard oral presentation or for interactive presentation. Furthermore, it encourages proposals for Special Sessions, Monday Tutorials, Friday Workshops, European Projects, University Booth, PhD Forum, and Exhibition Theatre.
