The core of the technical program consists of 158 peer-reviewed papers organized in 34 technical paper sessions, 20 sessions focused on EDA, 10 on embedded systems and 4 specific to system-level design. The total balance is 64% EDA papers and 34% embedded systems and system level papers. Eight papers were selected as best papers candidates.
Papers were selected from 747 submissions, with an acceptance rate of 21%. Among them two perspective papers were selected, focusing on mapping on many/multicore and reliable on-chip systems. Furthermore, there will be 83 papers presented in dedicated poster sessions as Work in progress.
The most popular submissions topics were:
- Power analysis and low power design
- Architectures for embedded systems
- Physical design and design closure
- Test and reliability
- Embedded System Specification and embedded software
The first three topics are the same as last year, while this year there was an increase in interest in test and reliability and embedded systems specification and software.
