The 16th DATE conference and exhibition is the main European event
bringing together designers and design automation users, researchers
and vendors, as well as specialists in the hardware and software
design, test and manufacturing of electronic circuits and systems.

The five-day event consists of a conference with plenary invited
papers, regular papers, panels, hot-topic sessions, tutorials and
workshops, two special focus days and a track for executives. The
scientific conference is complemented by a commercial exhibition. The
organisation of user group meetings, fringe meetings, a university
booth, a PhD forum, vendor presentations and social events offers a
wide variety of extra opportunities to meet and exchange
information. Special space will also be allocated for EU-funded
projects to show their results.


You are invited to submit your research contributions to the Topic

                      SECURE SYSTEMS

Secure systems need a combination of hardware, software and embedded
techniques to succeed. Indeed, the weakest link in the security chain
determines the overall system security. This topic invites papers on
novel technologies and experiences for specific security problems as
well as overall design integration methods for secure systems-on-chip
and embedded systems. Topics of interest are situated at all design
abstraction levels and include novel techniques and architectures for
embedded cryptography; modeling, characterization, simulation and
associated countermeasures for side-channel, fault and other physical
attacks; random numbers generation, embedded secure processors and
co-processors, trusted computing, off-chip memories and
network-on-chip enciphering and integrity checking, trust
establishment and attestation; implementation of security
applications; hardware enabled security, including physically
unclonable functions, and more.

Besides a regular submission topic (A5), DATE 2013 also accepts
proposals for special sessions, full-day and half-day tutorials,
University Booth presentations, Exhibition Theatre presentations,
full-day workshops and fringe meetings. Please consult the PDF Flyer
or the conference homepage for additional information.

Papers can be submitted for either formal oral presentation or for
interactive presentation. Oral presentations require novel and
complete research work supported by experimental results. Interactive
presentations are expected to articulate emerging and future design,
verification and test problems including work in progress and identify
open problems that merit innovative future research.

Submissions should not exceed 6 pages in length for oral-presentation
papers and 4 pages in length for interactive-presentation papers.
