The main conference program from Tuesday to Thursday includes 77 technical sessions organized in parallel tracks from four areas.
DATE 2014 opens doors on March 24 at the International Congress Center Dresden, Germany
With System Level Design and Advancing Electronics beyond CMOS, the two Special Days in the programme will focus on areas bringing new challenges to the system design community. Each of the Special Days will have a full programme of keynotes, panels, tutorials and technical presentations.
The conference will be opened by the plenary keynote speakers David Fuller, Vice President of Application and Embedded Software for National Instruments, who will talk about “System Design Challenges for Next Generation Wireless and Embedded Systems” and Gerd Teepe, Director Design Engineering at GLOBALFOUNDRIES in Dresden, to talk about “The Growing Importance of Microelectronics from a Foundry Perspective”.
On the same day, the Executive Track offers a series of business panels discussing hot topics. Executive speakers from Synopsis, Cadence, IBM, IMEC, TSMC Europe, Mentor Graphics and many other companies leading the design and automation industry will address some of the complexity issues in electronics design and discuss about the advanced technology challenges and opportunities.
The full conference programme including twelve Monday Tutorials on March 24, the regular conference from March 25-27 , and eight Friday Workshops on March 28, is available at:
The DATE 2014 Exhibition will run for three days from Tuesday, March 25 until Thursday, March 27, 2014, on the Terrace Level of the International Congress Center Dresden. The spacious area is located adjacent to the main session rooms and also hosts the coffee and lunch break area.
It again offers a comprehensive overview of commercial design and verification tools including vendor seminars and abundant networking possibilities with fringe meetings. The exhibition will feature suppliers of development tools and platforms for hardware and software development, showing a range of products from the front-end to back-end chip design through to silicon test and manufacture, from system architecture through to embedded software implementation and networking.

Exhibition Theatre features Hot Topics, best practice and panels
As special feature for exhibition visitors offers three days of high-quality programme in the Exhibition Theatre. Located in the midst of the exhibition area, the Exhibition Theatre programme provides best practice on design for various fields of applications and a special selection of the conference program with special Hot Topics, Tutorials and Panel sessions with industry leaders. At DATE 2014 the automotive industry will discuss their innovative mission profile aware design in the exhibition theatre, verification as critical part of the design process will be highlighted for analog/mixed-signal semiconductors, IP and FPGAs. The leading European clusters Dresden and Grenoble will disclose results of their intensive collaboration, including exploitation of a pure European innovation, the FD-SOI technology. How two fields of major innovation in Europe, 3D and MEMS technologies, will fuel the microelectronics innovation chain, will be discussed by market leaders in an exhibition theatre panel.
Entrance to the exhibition is free of charge. All exhibition programme sessions in the exhibition theatre can be attended with a free-of-charge exhibition registration, a conference registration is not required.
Detailed information on the Exhibition Theatre sessions is available at:
Another hot-spot in the exhibition is the University Booth where the leading universities and research institutes will present their latest research results with hardware and software demonstrators.
With various sessions and presentations running in parallel, the University Booth is a unique place showcasing a vast bunch of innovations covering EDA, design and test which will shape and revolutionize the way we design products in the future.

DATE 2014 will take place at the International Congress Center Dresden, Germany
The International Congress Center (ICC) Dresden is directly located on the banks of the river Elbe with a spectacular view at the historic city centre and within walking distance to downtown Dresden. The Saxony state capital Dresden is characterised by its historic flair and the numerous cultural sights attracting visitors from all over the world every year. It is a modern and vibrant city with short distances and a cuttingedge technology sector. Silicon Saxony is a registered industry association of nearly 300 companies in the microelectronics and related sectors in Saxony, Germany, with around 40,000 employees. The majority of those firms are situated in the north of Dresden. DATE is cooperating with Silicon Saxony to maximise quality visitor attendance to the show and increase visibility of the conference in the region. Dresden therefore states an excellent venue for DATE 2014.
