DTVEDA 2017, is a two-day workshop that aims to present an overview of some recent advances in the design, test, verification of micro/nanoelectronic circuits and systems in diverse application scenarios and case studies including automotive applications, high-speed wired and wireless connectivity, IoT and smart sensing, safety critical applications, hardware security and new trends in cryptography hardware implementations. Overall, the workshop targets young researchers in order to encourage them to follow postgraduate studies towards VLSI related topics, and at the same time inspire them to provide innovative solutions and the future state-of-the-art implementations, methodologies, techniques and design flows for the emerging market of Internet of Everything (IoE). Considering further that the increase in VLSI design complexity poses a significant challenge to EDA, a special track on EDA-related topics will be also covered.

DTVEDA 2017 is initiated to provide a common forum for academic and industry researchers for meeting and exploring new avenues of research.
The workshop will not only provide the opportunity for face-to-face interaction among researchers, scientists, and development professionals, but also aims to attract outstanding international speakers.

Its main goals are:

  • To inspire young researchers to join the circuits and systems designers community.
  • To provide to researchers and students a survey of the most seamless and robust design flows.
  • To bridge the gap of basic theory as taught in academia and best practices, as followed in industry.
  • To gather in one venue researchers and young students, from surrounding regions, to get involved in a variety of electronics’ topics.
  • To disseminate the state-of-the-art research results and communicate the relevant activities taking place in the region.
  • To provide a discussion forum concerning qualification, strategies and policies regarding development of human resources for Circuits and Systems oriented entrepreneurship in Greece.
  • To act as the catalyst for the establishment of local start-up and spin-off companies in the market of embedded systems.

The program will include at least 2 invited keynote speeches (international participation), whereas a number of about 14 talks will be given, with participation from industry as well as academia, ranging from premier local academic institutes of Greece to international independents.
The Outreach Initiative will give the opportunity to undergraduate and postgraduate students to get in touch for the first time with a scientific workshop in Electronic Design, Test, Verification, and EDA. This experience is very important to illustrate how industry and academy work together to develop such a complex area.
