[SCOPE]

The Euromicro Conference on Digital System Design (DSD) addresses all aspects of digital
system design from embedded and mixed hardware/software system engineering, down to
microarchitectures, digital circuits and VLSI techniques. It focuses on advanced circuit
and system design and design automation concepts, paradigms, methods and tools, as well as
on modern implementation technologies from full custom in nanometer technology nodes to
FPGA and to multicore infrastructures. Compiler assisted ASIP, CMP, SMP, SMT, DSP-VLIW,
GPU and platform based system design research results are welcome. Design and Verification
Languages and Standards, Modeling, High Level Synthesis, Productive Design Technology and
Engineering Flows, Efficiency, Density, Signal Integrity, Testability, Timing Analysis and
Timing Closure, Power Consumption, Computational Power Speed and Performance,
Manufacturability, Cost, Reliability, Error Resilience, Complexity, or Process Variability
issues are covered in DSD.


Euromicro was founded in 1973 by Rodnay Zaks and other colleagues shortly after the
announcement of the Intel 4004 landmark processor. IEEE Computer Society publishes the DSD
Proceedings which are available worldwide through IEEE Xplore Digital Library.

[SUBMISSION GUIDELINES]

Regular Papers:
Prospective authors are encouraged to submit their manuscripts for review electronically
trough the following web page (http://www.conftool.net/dsd2009/) or by sending the paper
to the Program Chair via email (antonio.nunez@xxxxxxxxxxxxx, only if an unexpected web
access problem is encountered) before the deadline for submission. Each manuscript should
include the complete paper text, all illustrations, and references. The manuscript should
conform to the required IEEE format: single-spaced, double column, A4/US letter page size,
10-point size Times Roman font, up to 8 pages. In order to conduct a blind review, no
indication of the authors' names should appear in the submitted manuscript, references
included.



Case Studies and Application Papers: Submissions can be made which report on
state-of-the-art digital systems, digital designs, architectures, design methods and/or
tools, and (embedded) applications. Papers discussing lessons learned from practical
experience, demanding or new applications, and experimental research are particularly
encouraged. Manuscripts may be submitted in the same way as regular papers.
