48th Design Automation Conference (DAC) Issues Call for Contributions

First deadline: October 19, 2010

LOUISVILLE, Colo. — (BUSINESS WIRE) — October 5, 2010 — The Design Automation Conference (DAC), the premier conference devoted to design and design automation of electronic systems (EDA), is seeking submissions that deal with tools, algorithms, EDA tool usage and design technologies for all aspects of electronic circuit, system, and embedded design for DAC 2011. In addition to conventional EDA topics, DAC 2011 invites submissions on Embedded Systems and Embedded Software topics. DAC 2011 also invites participation in various other EDA-related categories. This includes User Track submissions, Wild and Crazy ideas (WACI) submissions, Special Session, Panel and Tutorial proposals and co-located events.

New for 2011 is a strong focus on Embedded Systems and Software. Authors of Research Papers on all aspects of Embedded Systems and Software are specifically encouraged to submit their work to DAC 2011. Also new for 2011 is that select authors of submitted DAC papers that are not accepted for publication in 2011 will be invited in mid-February 2011 to participate in  “Work-In-Progress” (WIP) poster sessions.

The 48th DAC will be held at the San Diego Convention Center in San Diego, California, from June 5-10, 2011. Submission criteria and topics – including new cross-cutting topics that include low power, 3-D, and reliability – are outlined briefly below.

All submission information and topic details can be found at: http://www2.dac.com/48th+call+for+contributions.aspx

Research Papers

DUE BEFORE 5:00pm MT, November 18, 2010

A DAC Research Paper explores a specific technology problem and proposes a complete solution to it, with extensive experimental results. Submission includes a six-page paper and an abstract of approximately 60 words clearly stating the significant contribution, impact, and results of the submission. Select authors of submitted DAC papers that are not accepted for publication in 2011 will be invited in mid-February 2011 to participate in “Work-in-Progress” (WIP) poster sessions. They will be asked to submit a 100-word summary to publish on the website (and not in the proceedings). The authors also will be given the option to post their poster presentation on dac.com.

Embedded Systems and Software Papers (new)

DUE BEFORE 5:00pm MT, November 18, 2010

Authors of Research Papers on all aspects of embedded systems and software are specifically encouraged to submit to this focus call. It is possible to choose a second submission category (both from the regular research topics as well as from the focus embedded topics) to accommodate cross-cutting contributions. Submission requirements are the same as for Research Papers, and authors of papers not accepted again may be invited to participate in poster sessions, as above.

“Work-In-Progress” (WIP) Abstracts (new)

DUE BEFORE 5:00pm MT, March 1, 2011

This track aims to provide authors an opportunity for early feedback on work in progress or to share early results through a poster presentation outlined in a one-page submission that clearly specifies a technical problem, outlines a solution, and provides some early results. A WIP submission will not be included in the DAC proceedings. Therefore WIP presentation at DAC will not be considered as DAC publications, enabling full publication of the work at a later stage. If accepted, the 100-word summary will be placed on the dac.com website and authors will be given the option to place their poster on the web in addition to the 100-word summary. WIP authors are at liberty to submit an extended version of their work to other conferences and to journals without violating common codes of ethics.

User Track Extended Abstracts

DUE BEFORE 5:00pm MT, January 11, 2011

DAC’s User Track addresses the real-life issues facing IC designers, application engineers, and design flow developers. It provides valuable insights and experiences with in-house or commercial EDA tool flows. User Track papers may describe the application of EDA tools to the design of a novel electronic system or the integration of EDA tools within a design flow or methodology to produce such systems. A User Track paper may be problem-specific in scope (e.g., analyzing substrate coupling during floorplanning) or may address a specific application domain (e.g., designing wireless handsets). Initial submissions are in the form of a two-page extended abstract. Final submissions will be in the form of a PowerPoint presentation. User Track authors will not be required to sign a copyright release form as final submissions will not be published.

“Wild and Crazy Ideas” (WACI) Short Papers

DUE BEFORE 5:00pm MT, November 18, 2010

DAC invites two-page submissions with genuinely forward-looking, radical, and innovative ideas in the area of electronic design or EDA. The WACI sessions feature novel (and even preliminary or unproven) technical ideas, with submissions that follow the rules and deadlines for Research Papers. The aim of WACI is to promote revolutionary and way-out ideas that do not fit the conventional mold, that inspire discussion among conference attendees, that create a buzz, and that get people talking. Research that incrementally improves on prior work is not suited for this category. All WACI accepted papers will be required to post a two-minute video describing the work as part of the acceptance process.
