Innovation plays key role at Design Automation & Test in Europe

Design Automation & Test in Europe (DATE10) in Dresden, Germany, March 8-12, 2010, combined an electronic systems design conference with an international exhibition for electronic design, automation and test, from system level hardware and software implementation right down to integrated circuit design.

After DATE10 closed its doors, attendees from 39 countries had passed through, with Germany accounting for a fourth of the attendees, followed by U.S. and France.

China showed a substantial increase and was already number four of the participating countries. The number of attendees again reached the level of the previous years.

The proceedings of DATE10 are now available on-line at:
www.date-conference.com/proceedings, including the paper from Valeria Bertacco, attracting more than 50,000 downloads. The most popular topics this year of the more than 980 submissions were Simulation/Emulation and Low Power Systems Design, Estimation and Optimization.

In the exhibition DATE implemented an entirely new concept, moving from a large show-style event to a new model focusing on detailed presentation of innovation, on startups and on a very strong involvement of local clusters and companies.

DATE 2010 provided large value for users as well as vendors by the very intensive contributions from the Silicon Saxony cluster and Globalfoundries as new player in Dresden.

In addition to the 1300 attendees to the conference, the 625 highly qualified exhibition-only visitors are a big success for this concept, the attendees of the tool seminars of the big EDA vendors come on top of that.

In summary moving to Dresden, the new center of gravity in microelectronics in Germany, was a great success.

DATE 2011 will continue with this model and will take place from 14-18 March 2011 in the other leading microelectronics center in Europe, Grenoble, France.
