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

All papers highly evaluated by the DSD’2022 reviewers will be invited in their extended journal versions for the special issue of the ISI indexed Euromicro/Elsevier journal “Microprocessors and Microsystems: Embedded Hardware Design” (MICPRO) having the 2020 Impact Factor as high as 1.525.

Main Topics

  • Design and synthesis of systems, hardware and embedded software
  • IoT, cyber-physical and embedded systems
  • Autonomous/adaptable/re-configurable systems and architectures
  • Reliable, Secure, Safe and Optimized systems and their design methods
  • High-performance energy-efficient embedded systems and processor architectures
  • Highly-parallel multi- and many-core (heterogeneous) systems and architectures
  • Application analysis and parallelization for high-performance energy-efficient multi- and many-core embedded systems
  • Systems-on-a-chip, networks-on-a-chip and systems-in-a-package
  • Advanced applications of embedded and cyber-physical systems
  • Specification, modeling, analysis, validation and test for systems, hardware and embedded software
  • Formal Methods in System Design
  • Design automation at system, processor, register-transfer, logic and physical levels
  • New issues introduced by emerging applications and technologies

Best Paper Award

Based on the reviews and PC discussion, each track will nominate one paper for the Best Paper Award. The main track will nominate three papers. The Award Committee will select from them one paper for the Best Paper Award and three papers for the Outstanding Paper Award.

Submission Guidelines

Authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts to EasyChair.

Papers must strictly adhere to the two-column IEEE conference proceedings format. Please use the templates available here. LaTeX users should use the following configuration: documentclass[conference]{IEEEtran}. Microsoft Word users should use the US Letter format template. Each manuscript should include the complete paper text, all illustrations, and references. The manuscript should conform to the IEEE format: single-spaced, double column, US letter page size, 10-point size Times Roman font, up to 8 pages. In order to conduct a blind review, no indication of the authors’ names should appear in the manuscript, references included.

IEEE CPS Published

Conference Publishing Services (CPS) will publish accepted papers in the DSD proceedings. The proceedings will be submitted to indexers and to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. All conferences and conference proceedings must meet IEEE’s quality standards. IEEE reserves the right not to publish any proceedings that do not meet these standards.

The author’s session selection may be changed to create a thematically comprehensive DSD conference program.

NOTE: As a standard, DSD allows for up to 8 pages, with a possibility of 2 extra pages (having an extra cost of 60 Euro per page).
