The oranisers of DATE 09 have issued a call for papers. The submission deadline is 7 September 2008 – not much time after people return from their holidays! In addition to the general call for papers, the organisers are requesting dedicated papers for their application design, test/tools and embedded software tracks; and there will also be two days dedicated to multicore applications and SoC development strategies. For help getting your paper in on time, email Napier.
