Exhibition | Campus Booths and European Projects
The conference is complemented by an exhibition which runs for three days (Tuesday – Thursday), offering a comprehensive overview of commercial design and verification tools including vendor seminars and abundant networking possibilities with fringe meetings. This year, there are dedicated campus booths with focus on major trends shaping the future of microelectronics such as IoT and secure systems, Ultra-Low power technologies (FDSOI), 5G wireless networks, 3D-IC integration and automotive systems.
On the campus booths major international industrial players and research institutions will jointly share their vision on those trends. With this setup the exhibition provides a unique networking opportunity and states the perfect venue for industries to meet University Professors to foster University Programme and especially for PhD Students to meet future employees.
Moreover, ten European Projects will be represented at a joint booth space in the heart of the exhibition area.
The full list of participating exhibitors and sponsors including their company profiles can be found online: http://www.date-conference.com/exhibitors-sponsors
Exhibition Theatre features Hot Topics and Best Practice

The eleven Exhibition Theatre sessions will highlight visionary talks from industrial leaders and best practice presentations from the dedicated thematic campuses in the DATE16 Exhibition, with contributions from Bosch Sensortec, Fraunhofer, GLOBALFOUNDRIES, Infineon, Nokia, T-Systems and many more. Hot Topics will include ultra-low-power technologies, IoT technologies and sensor platforms, IoT survival guide and big data challenges, 5G for the connected world, 3D-IC integration for SMEs and AMS coverage analysis.
DATE16 Exhibition Theatre will further feature a special themed session on the education of computer architects and SoC designers, a special "Model Based Design and Verification Day" and the launch of a worldwide MEMS design contest. Creators of these sessions are Imagination Technologies, MathWorks and Cadence, resp. Entrance to the exhibition is free of charge. All exhibition programme sessions in the Exhibition Theatre (in Seminar rooms 3+4) can be visited with a free-of-charge exhibition visitor registration; a conference registration is not required.
Detailed information on the Exhibition Theatre sessions is available online: http://www.date-conference.com/exhibition/exhibition-theatre
Another hot-spot in the exhibition is the University Booth where the leading universities and research institutes will present their latest research results with hardware and software demonstrators. With various sessions and presentations running in parallel, the University Booth is a unique place showcasing a large number of innovations covering EDA, design and test which will shape and revolutionize the way we design products in the future.
Detailed information on the University Booth programme is available at: http://www.date-conference.com/exhibition/u-booth
DATE 2016 will take place at the International Congress Center Dresden, Germany
The International Congress Center (ICC) Dresden is directly located on the banks of the river Elbe with a spectacular view at the historic city centre and within walking distance to downtown Dresden. The Saxon capital Dresden combines a uniquely rich cultural life with modern spirit and continuous scientific progress. Dresden’s historic centre with its baroque flair and plenty of popular sights such as the rebuilt Frauenkirche is part of the Dresden Elbe Valley and attracts numerous visitors from all over the world every year. Surrounded by a beautiful landscape, Dresden furthermore provides a picturesque environment for exceptional leisure tours. The city states an important centre of science with numerous universities, technology and scientific institutes. It is a modern and vibrant city with short distances and a cutting-edge technology and economy sector. Silicon Saxony is a registered industry association of 300 companies in the microelectronics and related sectors in Saxony, Germany, with around 20,000 employees. DATE is cooperating closely with Silicon Saxony to maximize quality visitor attendance to the show and increase visibility of the conference in the region. Dresden therefore states an excellent venue for hosting DATE 2016.
DATE Networking Event
The DATE Party marks another highlight during the DATE week. As one of the main networking opportunities, it states a perfect occasion to meet friends and colleagues in a relaxed atmosphere while enjoying local amenities. It will take place on March 16, 2016, in one of Dresden's most outstanding museums, the Albertinum Dresden. This unique museum with its spectacular architecture has been reopened in June 2010 and houses the art gallery "Neue Meister" (New Masters Gallery) and the "Skulpturensammlung" (Sculpture Collection). All conference delegates, exhibitors and their guests are invited to attend the event (entrance is only possible with a valid party ticket though).

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.
While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
Laser-driving of semimetals allows creating novel quasiparticle states within condensed matter systems and switching between different states on ultrafast time scales
Studying properties of fundamental particles in condensed matter systems is a promising approach to quantum field theory. Quasiparticles offer the opportunity...
Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.
As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...
At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).
Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...
Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.
The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...
