Workshop affiliated to DATE 2018 about:
"New Platforms for Future Cars"
Dresden, Germany, March 23, 2018

Submission deadline: 14 January 2018
Acceptance notification: 31 January 2018

The automotive industry is rapidly moving towards the adoption of new 
hardware solutions, such as multi- and many-core processors, FPGAs and 
neural networks in order to comply with the increasingly number of ECUs 
and the high computational power required by future autonomous cars and 
advanced vision processing. Moreover, with the emerging trends in 
autonomous driving such as V2X communication and Internet of Cars, 
security is also arising as a serious concern for many automotive 
players. Therefore, new architecture solutions pose numerous challenges 
such as migrating legacy code, data fusion and processing of a multitude 
of sensors piling into autonomous cars, mapping affecting processing 
power demands in new systems architectures, employment of deep learning 
and other advanced AI techniques, the verification and validation of 
timing safety and providing secure interfaces to connect the cars to 
each other and to the outside world. The goal of this workshop is to 
bring together researchers as well as practitioners from academia and 
industry to discuss and investigate cutting-edge methods and tools that 
will be driving technology innovation in the field of autonomous systems 
in order to devise highly efficient systems and systems-of-systems for 
future self-driving cars.

*Submission Guidelines *

We invite interested contributors to submit to the workshop an extended 
abstract of a maximum 2-pages in the IEEE double column format. This is 
expected to cover emerging and future design, verification and test 
problems including work in progress and identify open problems that 
deserve innovative future research. Contributions with a strong industrial
focus and applicability are highly recommended. Areas of interest 
include, but are not limited to,

• Autonomous driving,
• Multicore platforms for automotive applications,
• Hardware/Software co-design of automotive systems,
• Parallelizing legacy code in automotive systems,
• Model-based design for safety and security,
• Predictable models of executions,
• Timing analysis for multicore/manycore architectures,
• Internet of things solutions for connected car systems,
• Security of in-vehicle networks,

Accepted contributions will be published in the form on informal 
proceedings, distributed to participants of the workshop. Contributions 
will serve for interactive presentations and will be presented in a 
face-to-face discussion area. Presenters are required to prepare a 
poster (up to A0 format) to help the discussion.

*Venue *

The workshop is organized as a Friday workshop associated to DATE 2018, 
the conference on Design, Automation and Test in Europe. The workshop 
will be held in Dresden, Germany, on March 23 rd.
