2019 Call For Tutorials

2019 Call For Tutorials

Submission is now CLOSED

The Design and Verification Conference & Exhibition Europe (DVCon Europe) is the premier conference for the engineering community active in system, software, design, verification, validation or integration to share the latest methodologies and technologies on the practical use of EDA and IP languages and standards for integrated and embedded systems and products.
The focus of this highly technical conference is on the industrial application of specialized design, verification and validation methodologies, design and verification languages such as C, SystemC, SystemVerilog, UVM, formal and assertion-based verification; the use of AMS languages; design automation using IP-XACT and the use of other general purpose languages.
Industry applications of interest are (but not limited to) automotive, mobile communication, aerospace, healthcare, chip-cards, consumer and power electronics. 
DVCon Europe solicits submissions related to advanced design and verification on special interest areas such as Digital Twin, Machine Learning, Internet-of-things and Functional safety and security.
This call for tutorials solicits high quality educational training sessions that are technical and reflect real life experiences in using EDA languages, standards, methodologies and tools for system and software design and verification. Submissions are encouraged in (but not restricted to) the topic areas listed below:


  • Electronic System Level (ESL) design including: architectural and algorithmic exploration, system-level design and verification, software verification on virtual prototypes, interface-based design, SystemC-based modeling, transaction level modeling (TLM), etc.
  • System integration and flow automation using standards like IP-XACT.
  • Using the Universal Verification Methodology (UVM) for functional and coverage-driven verification.
  • Formal and Assertion-based Verification (in a digital and in an AMS context).
  • Hardware/software co-design or co-verification, using simulation, acceleration or emulation.
  • Verification and post-silicon-validation methodologies, their management and the traceability throughout the whole flow.
  • Mixed-signal design, verification and modeling.
  • Low-power design techniques using standards like UPF, CPF, IEEE1801, etc.
  • Safety and security in system-level design, verification and/or validation (e.g., ISO 26262, DO-254)


DVCon Europe tutorials are 90 minute sessions, which will be presented on 29 October, 2019. Concerning the tutorial format, we target four different types of tutorials:

  • Industrial: Tutorial presenting industry use cases and experiences
  • Educational/Workshop: In-depth educational and learning session
  • Research: Innovation-centric tutorial presenting novel methodologies and technologies
  • Standardization: Tutorial focusing on standardization initiatives in Accellera, IEEE, etc.

The submitter is responsible to organize the tutorial with multiple speakers, deliver the presentation material, and select one of the above-mentioned formats.

Please submit your tutorial abstract by Extended to 3 May, 2019, the target submission length is a maximum of 500 - 600 words and a maximum 3 pages.

Tutorial Abstract Submission Process

A tutorial abstract should contain:

  • Abstract title, stating that this is a Tutorial submission
  • Select relevant tutorial format: Industrial, Education/Workshop, Research or Standardization.
  • Name, affiliation, phone number and email addresses for all speakers
  • An introduction that specifies the context and motivation of the Tutorial submission
  • A summary of the specific content of your Tutorial and intended audience
  • Maximum of 500-600 words and a maximum 3 pages
  • There is no template for the tutorial abstract; please use the default Word template
  • Provide enough details so that the Technical Program Committee can evaluate the potential quality and interest of your possible Tutorial at DVCon Europe
  • Please submit your draft paper via the Navigation Center by Extended to 3 May, 2019.

Tutorial Selection

The Tutorial Chair, assisted by the Technical Program Committee, selects tutorials for inclusion in the DVCon Europe program. Tutorials are selected based on:

·         Breadth of interest in the area and the timeliness of the topic

·         Technical depth and breadth of the proposal

·         Differentiation from other tutorials and special sessions

·         Multiple viewpoints on the topic

·         How well the topic fits within the overall content of the conference


DVCon Europe is dedicated to the success of the tutorial day! Once the selection is final, you will be sent detailed guidelines and deadlines to assist you with your planning.

Tutorial Roles

Tutorial Organizer: For the selected tutorial, the Organizer coordinates all tutorial activities with DVCon Europe, including ensuring that content is delivered in a timely manner and that the final presentation goes smoothly; follow-through is critical, the Organizer must interact with the Tutorial Chair.

  • The Organizer writes the proposal for the tutorial and the abstract that is submitted for proposal evaluation.
  • The Organizer selects and confirms the participation of the Presenter(s) (who could include the Organizer).
  • The Organizer writes the material that will be included in the website and publications. It is very important that the Organizer write the material to help a potential attendee decide if they should attend this tutorial.
  • The program material should describe the target audience and their expected level of familiarity with the topic (Expert/Intermediate/Beginner).
  • An Organizer can propose multiple tutorials on aligned topics with different speakers.
  • Presenter(s): The Presenter(s) is responsible for delivering the presentation.
