DATE to take place in 'cool' Dresden in 2010

DATE, the Design Automation and Test Europe conference and exhibitions and Europe's equivalent to DAC, is set to take place in Dresden in March 2010. This is a break with a tradition that has seen the event alternate between Nice and Munich in successive years.


LONDON — DATE, the Design Automation and Test Europe conference and exhibitions and Europe's equivalent to DAC, is set to take place in Dresden in March 2010. This is a break with a tradition that has seen the event alternate between Nice and Munich in successive years.

Professor Giovanni De Micheli, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland, has been appointed general chair of DATE 2010 and he announced the event will take place in the Dresden Congress Center, Germany, March 8 to 12, 2010.

"As the center of a leading nanoelectronics cluster in Europe, Dresden is the perfect place for hosting DATE 2010," said Professor De Micheli, in a statement. "The ultra-modern conference center and the close-by historical centre of this beautiful town with lots of cultural highlights make it an attractive location for a worldwide leading event like DATE."

The DATE event is to include themed days on nanoelectronics and low-power electronics and will dedicate a full day program of keynotes, panels, tutorials and technical presentations to each of them.

Professor Gerhard Fettweis, of the Technische Universitaet Dresden, Germany, is organizer of the special day on cool electronic systems. The cool theme is in-line with efforts made by the Saxony region of Germany, supported by state and federal funds worth 100 million euro (about $135 million). The money is being used to form the so-called Cool-Silicon-Cluster; a five-year program intended to reduce the energy consumption of ICs and information technology while invigorating technology and employment in the Dresden region.

Professor Fettweis is coordinator of the Cool-Silicon research project. Professor Adrian Ionescu, EPFL Lausanne, Switzerland, is the organizer for the nanoeletronics day.
