The Design and Verification Conference & Exhibition Europe (DVCon Europe) is the premier European technical conference on system, software, design, verification, validation and integration. It is a place where the latest methodologies and technologies of tools, languages, and standards for integrated and embedded systems and products are shared and discussed.
Applications of interest include (but not limited to) automotive, mobile communication, aerospace, healthcare, chip-cards, consumer and power electronics. DVCon Europe solicits submissions related to industrial application or advanced research in design and verification. Special interest areas are Digital Twin, Internet-of-Things, Functional Safety and Security, ML/AI, ADAS and Digitalization.
DVCon Europe 2023 accepts submissions of industrial and academic papers, tutorials and panels with highly technical content reflecting real life experiences as well as research topics.
