== Overview of DATE 2020

The 23rd 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. DATE puts a strong emphasis on both technology and systems, covering ICs/ SoCs, reconfigurable hardware and embedded systems, and embedded software.

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 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, e.g. automotive, IoT, wireless, telecom and multimedia applications. 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 on relevant issues for the design and test community. Special space will also be allocated for EU-funded projects to show their results.

== Track E: Embedded and Cyber-Physical Systems

The track is devoted to the modelling, analysis, design and deployment of embedded software or embedded/cyber-physical systems. Areas of interest include methods, tools, methodologies and development environments. Emphasis will also be on model-based design and verification, embedded software platforms, software compilation and integration, real-time systems, cyber-physical systems, networked systems, and dependable systems.

== Topic E3: E3 Model-Based Design, Verification and Security for Embedded Systems

The topic is devoted to verification techniques for embedded systems ranging from simulation, testing, model-checking, SAT and SMT-based reasoning, compositional analysis and analytical methods. Modeling, analysis and optimization of non-functional and performance aspects such as security, timing, memory usage, QoS and reliability. Model-based design of software architectures and deployment. Theories, languages and tools supporting model-based design flows covering software, control and physical components. Monitoring and run-time verification of embedded systems. Security attacks, protection and analysis of embedded systems’ hardware and software.
