DATE Friday Virtual Workshop on *System-Level Design Methods for Deep 
Learning on Heterogeneous Architectures* (SLOHA 2021)

co-located with Conference on Design, Automation and Test in Europe 
(DATE) on February 5, 2021

Paper Submission Deadline: November 6, 2020


*Scope of DATE Friday Workshop*
The SLOHA 2021 Virtual Workshop aims at providing a thorough overview of 
the most recent advancements in the topics related to enabling, 
optimizing and using the powerful deep learning (DL) technology on 
embedded systems, ranging from dedicated accelerator architectures to 
automated topology selection algorithms and use cases, through 
specialized compilers and optimized scheduling algorithms. The workshop 
will also be an excellent opportunity for networking in this emerging 
interdisciplinary field.
The main theme of the SLOHA 2021 Virtual Workshop will be system-level 
design methods for deep learning on heterogeneous architectures.

*Topics of the SLOHA Workshop include, but are not limited to*
o System-level design methods (e.g., scheduling, mapping) for DL
o Compilers, code generators, and synthesis tools for deployment
o Heterogeneous computing platforms, edge devices, neuromorphic hardware 
for DL
o Modeling of DL target platforms
o Design space exploration and optimization (accuracy, performance, 
energy efficiency, robustness, security and other non-functional 
o Deep compression, quantization and pruning techniques for edge devices
o Modeling of hardware-agnostic neural networks
o Signal processing applications, use cases, and best practices

*Guide for Authors*
We will accept two contributions formats: regular papers reporting 
original contributions (up to six pages) and extended abstracts 
describing works-in-progress (WiP, up to two pages).
All contributions should follow the standard IEEE conference template 
papers may or may not report authors names and affiliations (optional 
blind review). All papers must be submitted in PDF format via the 
conference management software EasyChair 
(https://easychair.org/conferences/?conf=sloha2021); additional details 
about the submission process are available on the workshop's web page.
Accepted papers will be included in an ePrint collection with Open 
Access. Every accepted paper must have at least one author registered to 
the workshop by the time the camera-ready paper is due. The regular 
papers judged as most valuable will be allocated a slot for an oral 
presentation. Registered authors will be able to present their work 
during a virtual poster session; due to the virtual format of the 
conference, authors will need to prepare short presentations.

*Important dates*
Submission deadline (regular papers):            Friday,    November 6,
