ABOUT DATE

The 17th 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. It puts 
strong emphasis on both ICs/SoCs, reconfigurable hardware and embedded
systems, including embedded software.

The five-day event consists of a conference with plenary invited papers,
regular papers, panels, hot-topic sessions, tutorials, workshops, two
special focus days and a track for executives. The scientific conference
is complemented by a commercial exhibition showing the state-of-the-art in
design and test tools, methodologies, IP and design services, reconfigurable
and other hardware platforms, embedded software, and (industrial) design
experiences from different application domains, such as automotive, 
wireless, telecom and multimedia applications. The organization 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 on relevant issues for the design and 
test community. Special space will also be allocated for EU-funded projects
to show their results. More details are given on the DATE website
(www.date-conference.com).

SUBMISSIONS TO TOPIC A5

You are invited to submit your research contributions to the Topic

                      SECURE SYSTEMS

Security has become a major factor in the design of modern hardware, 
software and embedded systems. This topic seeks to report on the latest
research efforts to address security problems in electronic design, 
including design integration methods for secure system-on-chip design 
and embedded systems.

Topics of interest are located at all design abstraction levels and 
include novel implementations of embedded cryptographic hardware and
software; high-performance and lightweight cryptography; physical 
attacks including side-channel analysis and fault analysis; 
countermeasures against physical attacks; techniques to detect
counterfeiting; detection of hardware trojans; techniques to enforce 
system integrity and to protect against physical tampering; methods 
for protection of intellectual property in hardware and software; 
novel hardware cryptographic primitives such as random number 
generators and unique identifiers; applications of cryptographic 
engineering; secure embedded processors and co-processors; trusted 
computing, trusted boot and related applications; secure computer
architecture and storage.

SUBMISSION INSTRUCTIONS

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.
