A note on COVID-19 Coronavirus

The Euromicro DSD/SEAA 2020 Conference Organizing Committee extends its empathies to all of those impacted by COVID-19 Coronavirus worldwide. The safety and well-being of all conference participants is our priority. With the best hopes for the situation to normalize in the following months, the Conference is still scheduled to be held as planned from 26th to 28th August 2020. We will continue to monitor official travel advisories related to the COVID-19 Coronavirus and update the Conference website to keep you informed about eventual changes in Conference program. All papers that will be accepted by the review process of DSD/SEAA will be published, regardless of the authors' physical presence at the conference in case of travel restrictions. Conditions for papers to be included in the proceedings might be adapted (depending on travel restrictions and whether in-person conference attendance will be possible and safe). Hope to see you all in August!


The Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD) addresses all aspects of (embedded, pervasive and high-performance) digital and mixed HW/SW system engineering, covering the whole design trajectory from specification down to micro-architectures, digital circuits and VLSI implementations. It is a forum for researchers and engineers from academia and industry working on advanced investigations, developments and applications.

It focuses on today’s and future challenges of advanced embedded, high-performance and cyber-physical applications; system and processor architectures for embedded and high-performance HW/SW systems; design methodology and design automation for all design levels of embedded, high-performance and cyber-physical systems; modern implementation technologies from full custom in nanometer technology nodes, through FPGAs, to MPSoC infrastructures.

Authors are kindly invited to submit their work according (but not limited) to the main topics of the conference main track. In addition, several Special Sessions (with their own coordinators and subprogram committees) do also welcome contributions in specific themes of particular interest. All papers are reviewed following guidelines, quality requirements and thresholds that are common to all committees.

Extended versions of selected best papers will be published in a special issue of the ISI indexed Euromicro/Elsevier journal “Microprocessors and Microsystems: Embedded Hardware Design” (MICPRO) having the 2018 Impact Factor as high as 1.045.

Main Topics

  • Design and synthesis of systems, hardware and embedded software
  • IoT, cyber-physical and embedded systems
  • Systems-on-a-chip, networks-on-a-chip and systems-in-a-package
  • Autonomous, self-aware, re-configurable and adaptable systems, and their design
  • Reliable, Secure, Safe and Optimized to multiple objectives systems, and their design
  • Formal Methods in System Design
  • Specification, modeling, analysis, validation and test for systems, hardware and embedded software
  • Design automation at system, register-transfer, logic and physical levels
  • Advanced applications of cyber-physical, embedded and high-performance systems
  • Application analysis and parallelization for embedded and high-performance design
  • New issues introduced by emerging applications and technologies, and their solutions

Special Sessions and Organizers

Best Paper Award

Based on the reviews and PC discussion, each track will nominate one paper for the Best Paper Award. The main track will nominate three papers. The Award Committee will select from them one paper for the Best Paper Award and three papers for the Outstanding Paper Award.
