Grenoble France

This is the Call for Demonstrations for the University Booth at DATE 2020 in Grenoble, France! The University Booth fosters the transfer of academic work to industry. Prototypes are valuable demonstrators to express and compare the competitiveness of new EDA methodologies and hardware solutions. DATE 2020 features the University Booth in the exhibition hall of the conference venue. Universities and public research institutes are invited to submit their hardware platforms, prototype tools and pre-commercial results for DATE 2020 in Grenoble, France.

Software prototypes will be demonstrated on a desk with your own laptop or your own other equipment.

Hardware prototypes and platforms will be demonstrated on a desk with your own laptop or your own other equipment. Hardware can be illustrated within a working environment. Stand-alone circuits will not be exhibited.

Each exhibitor is responsible for bringing and installing the hardware and software resources necessary for showing the entire functionality of the circuit. Participants are liable for their software and equipment, respectively. Ten demonstrations will be presented in parallel in each of the 11 timeslots at the University Booth. This gives visitors the opportunity to see several demonstrations within a short period of time.

Proposals for demonstrations can be submitted to one of four technical topics.

  • Electronic Design Automation Prototypes
  • Hardware Design and Test Prototypes
  • Embedded Artificial Intelligence
  • Silicon Photonics


Submissions to the University Booth are done in two phases. Within the first submission phase, you have to submit an abstract (max. 1,000 characters) of your demonstration only. Submissions are accepted online only. After acceptance, you need to provide a one-page, single-sided description as a PDF file of your demonstration.
