European Projects in Digital System Design


F. Leporati (U Pavia, IT)

On behalf of the DSD Steering and Program Committees we would like to invite you to the DSD’2014 Special Session on “European Projects in Digital System Design”.

The aim of the Special Session is to bring together the researchers of major just started, ongoing or recently finished European Projects of FP7, Artemis, Eniac, Medea+ etc. in the (Embedded) Digital System Design Area to widely disseminate the awareness and information on the projects, as well as, to create a forum for exchange of ideas, advanced discussion and cross-project collaboration.

We are inviting you to deliver in the scope of the Special Session your invited talk giving an overview of your European project, i.e. discussing the aims, problems to be addressed and issues to be solved, proposed approaches and/or results achieved till now.

In parallel to your invited presentation, you are asked to submit an invited paper or extended abstract related to your invited talk that will be printed in the DSD’2015 Proceedings (printed by IEEE Press).

Only the overview papers from new projects (i.e. not yet presented at DSD) are accepted by invitation, while all other papers from EPDSD (either overview papers or papers on specific subjects the project addresses) will undergo a regular review and acceptance procedure.

Since EUROMICRO is a non-profit organization covering the conference costs from the Conference Fee, you will be asked to pay a regular Conference Fee.

Additionally, we are encouraging the European Project Coordinators to submit other papers from their research groups to the regular DSD program according to the DSD’2015 Call for Papers.

A number of selected papers from DSD’2015 related to the European Projects will be considered for publication in a Special Issue on “European Projects in Digital System Design” of the Microprocessors and Microsystems (MICPRO) Journal by Elsevier Science.


Please inform us on your acceptance of our invitation to the Special Session by sending e-mail to the EPDSD Special Session Program Chair, Prof. Francesco Leporati (francesco.leporati@unipv.it) as soon as possible.

You will be then asked to submit your Invited Paper through the web page (http://www.easychair.org/conferences/?conf=dsd2015) before the DSD’2015 deadline.

Each manuscript should include the complete paper text, all illustrations, and references. The manuscript should conform to the required CPS format: single-spaced, double column, US letter page size, 10-point size Times Roman font, up to 8 pages. Submission instructions here.
