DATE Save the Date 17 to 19 April 2023

Dear DATE community,

We, the DATE Sponsors Committee (DSC) and the DATE Executive Committee (DEC), are deeply shocked and saddened by the tragedy currently unfolding in Ukraine, and we would like to express our full solidarity with all the people and families affected by the war.

Our thoughts also go out to everyone in Ukraine and Russia, whether they are directly or indirectly affected by the events, and we extend our deep sympathy.

We condemn Russia’s military action in Ukraine, which violates international law. And we call on the different governments to take immediate action to protect everyone in that country, particularly including its civilian population and people affiliated with its universities.

Now more than ever, our DATE community must promote our societal values (justice, freedom, respect, community, and responsibility) and confront this situation collectively and peacefully to end this nonsense war.

DATE Sponsors and Executive Committees.

Kindly note that all times on the virtual conference platform are displayed in the user's time zone.

The time zone for all times mentioned at the DATE website is CET – Central Europe Time (UTC+1).

BarCamp @ DATE

… miss the creative vibe of conference socials?

… want to think outside of the box?

THEN join us at the BarCamp

The Concept

Watch the video of the Dry Run to understand how a BarCamp event looks like.

What to bring:

  • Discussion topics
  • Active Participation

How it works:

  • Pitch your topic in the scheduling session
  • Show your interest by voting for topics
  • Schedule your topic in the agenda (if there is enough interest)
  • Get a 1h time slot for your discussion topic
  • Document your findings
  • Have fun!

The BarCamp is massively relaxing the formal event structure by letting the participants play an active role in deciding the agenda. With nothing but your knowledge, your interest and your willingness to learn and discuss, you are prepared to join any session. To propose a topic as a session on its own, you only need to give a 2-3 minute 'session pitch' (some very introductory words about your topic). During the sessions we explain, discuss, and jointly develop the topics with everybody's knowledge level taken into consideration. Meeting and discussing on par with each other ensure everyone's individual interests and work can and will benefit from the others:

The BarCamp @ DATE provides this informal, open space to you! Bring your colleagues and share the BarCamp event with anyone who might be interested – especially anyone who might be helpful for your topic!

The Rules

To build this open and creative atmosphere every BarCamper is asked to follow the 'Rules of BarCamp' :

  1. You do talk about BarCamp.
  2. You do blog about BarCamp.
  3. If you want to present, you must write your topic and name in a presentation slot.
  4. Only short intros.
  5. As many presentations at a time as facilities will allow for.
  6. No pre-scheduled presentations, no tourists.
  7. Presentations will go on as long as they have to or until they run into another presentation slot.
  8. If this is your first time at BarCamp, you HAVE to present.
    (Ok, you don't really HAVE to, but try to find someone to present with, or at least ask questions and be an interactive participant.)

The Topics

We suggest following umbrella-topics:

  • Technical Track: new perspectives in electronic system engineering
    • Technical innovations -- design problems / ideas for solutions
    • Problems, solutions, thoughts & ideas you want to share
    • Looking for partners, projects, collaborations
  • Teaching Track: your concepts, experiences, tools and material for teaching electronic system design
    • What matters most in education for the future generation of professionals
    • Sharing best-practices
    • Sharing teaching material
    • Build lectures and seminars together
    • How to use the power of online teaching media and lessons learnt from teaching during COVID-19
  • Scientific Track: problem descriptions, solution drafts, topic proposals, job-offers and use-case discussions related to research in electronic system engineering
    • Sessions on 'your personal PhD topic'
    • Ideas/topics for new PhD candidates
    • Looking for industrial use-cases
    • Looking for a job
  • Community Track: Shaping the future of our community
