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 applications.
It focuses on today’s and future challenges of advanced embedded, high-performance and cyber-physical applications; system and processor architectures for embedded and high-performance HW/SW systems; design methodology and design automation for all design levels of embedded, high-performance and cyber-physical systems; modern implementation technologies from full custom in nanometer technology nodes, through FPGAs, to MPSoC infrastructures.
Authors are kindly invited to submit their work according (but not limited) to the main topics of the conference main track. In addition, several Special Sessions (with their own coordinators and subprogram committees) do also welcome contributions in specific themes of particular interest (for details see http://dsd-seaa2017.ocg.at/dsd2017/). All papers are reviewed following guidelines, quality requirements and thresholds that are common to all committees.
Extended versions of selected best papers will be published in a special issue of the ISI indexed Euromicro/Elsevier journal “Microprocessors and Microsystems: Embedded Hardware Design” (MICPRO) having the 2016 Impact Factor as high as 1.025.
The DSD conference focus on today’s and future challenges is reflected also in the structure of Special Sessions. As the digital design world changes, the structure of Special Sessions dynamically changes as well – new Special Sessions are created, while the obsolete topics are suspended. For example, between 2011 and 2017, eight new sessions has seen the light of the day and two sessions joined together, while seven sessions were discarded. In DSD 2018 one of the new special sessions will be on “Applications, architectures, methods and tools for Deep-Learning and AI”.
The Steering Committee of the Euromicro DSD conference welcomes proposals for Special Sessions on relevant novel, emerging and hot topics in the field of digital and cyber-physical system design. We kindly ask the researchers who are willing to organize the special sessions on cutting-edge topics, to send their proposals to the Chairman of the Steering Committee, prof. Lech Jozwiak, L.Jozwiak@tue.nl, before September 30th, 2017.
