Call for Papers DSD 2015

18th Euromicro Conference on Digital Systems Design (DSD 2015)

Funchal, Madeira, Portugal
August 26-28, 2015

The Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD) addresses all aspects of (embedded, pervasive and high-performance) digital and mixed hardware/software system engineering, down to microarchitectures, digital circuits and VLSI implementations. It is a discussion forum for researchers and engineers from academia and industry working on state-of-the-art investigations, development and applications.

It focuses on today’s and future challenges of advanced system architectures for embedded and high-performance hw/sw systems, application analysis and parallelization, design automation for all design levels, as well as, on modern implementation technologies from full custom in nanometer technology nodes, through FPGAs, to multi-core infrastructures. It covers a multitude of highly relevant design aspects from system, hardware and embedded software specification, modeling, analysis, synthesis and validation, through system adaptability, security, dependability and fault tolerance, to system energy consumption minimization and multi-objective optimization.


  • Deadline for paper submission: April 12th, 2015 (EXTENDED)
  • Notification of acceptance: June 15th, 2015
  • Camera ready papers: June 29th, 2015
  • Conference: August 26-28, 2015

Authors are kindly invited to submit their work according (but not limited) to the seven main topics of the conference main track. In addition, eleven 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.

CPS, Conference Publishing Services, publishes the DSD Proceedings (submitted for ISI indexing), submitted to the IEEE Xplore Digital Library. An extended version of the selected best papers will be published in a special issue of the ISI-indexed “Microprocessors and Microsystems: Embedded Hardware Design” Elsevier journal.

More information regarding submissions can be found in the submission guidelines page.


  • T1: Advanced applications of (embedded) digital systems
  • T2: Application analysis and parallelization for embedded and high-performance design
  • T3: System, hardware and embedded-software specification, modeling, verification and test
  • T4: System, hardware and embedded software design and automatic synthesis
  • T5: Systems-on-a-chip and networks-on-a-chip
  • T6: Programmable/re-configurable/adaptable architectures
  • T7: Important issues introduced by emerging technologies


In addition to the above Main Topics (the Conference “traditional core”), papers are also sought for special sessions.

Prospective authors are invited to submit papers related to design methodologies and architectures for multi-standard, multi-mode flexible radios (FDR), performance improvement and energy consumption reduction for multicore systems (MSDA), system and SoC dependability and testing (DTFT), new techniques and tools for logic synthesis, physical design and testing of circuits in emerging technologies (ETCS), integration of multiple functions with different criticality and certification assurance levels (MCSDIA), architectures and hardware for secure embedded systems, e.g. smart cards, DSPs, RFID and Wireless Sensor Networks (AHSA), heterogeneous distributed pervasive networked embedded and cyber-physical systems (DCPS), advanced systems for improving quality of life, healthcare and personal assistance (ASHWPA), new architectures and systems for automotive and intelligent transportation (ASAIT), design of digital systems for next-generation power grids (SDSG), or issues and solutions researched in starting, ongoing or recently finished European Projects in the (embedded, pervasive and high-performance) Digital System Design Area (EPDSD).
