Euromicro Conference on
Digital System Design

August 29 – 31, 2018
Prague | Czech Republic

DSD 2018


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 (see CfPs). All papers are reviewed following guidelines, quality requirements and thresholds that are common to all committees.

The Author's Session selection can be changed according actually sent papers to create a thematically comprehensive DSD conference program.

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.
