Dear colleagues,
  Please consider submitting to this new and exciting workshop on design
automation for understanding hardware designs. The workshop will be
co-located with Design, Automation and Test in Europe (DATE), 2014.


DUHDe – 1st Workshop on
Design Automation for Understanding Hardware Designs


March 28, 2014 – Friday Workshop at DATE 2014, Dresden, Germany

Deadline for submissions: November 24, 2013 Notification of
acceptance: December
15, 2013 Camera ready papers: February 15, 2013
Scope of the workshop and target audience

Understanding a hardware design is tough. When entering a large team as a
new member, when extending a legacy design, or when documenting a new
design, a lack in understanding the details of a design is a major obstacle
for productivity. In software engineering topics like software maintenance,
software understanding, reverse engineering are well established in the
research community and partially tackled by tools. In the hardware area the
re-use of IP-blocks, the growing size of designs and design teams leads to
similar problems. Understanding of hardware requires deep insight into
concurrently operating units, optimizations to reduce the required area,
and specially tailored functional units for a particular use.

The workshop is of interest to practitioners working in circuit design and
to researchers interested in design automation.

The aim of the *1st Workshop on Design Automation for Understanding
Hardware Designs* (DUHDe) is to establish a community for these topics in
electronic design automation. The workshop is not limited to the following
topics in design understanding but includes:

-  Design descriptions from the ESL down to RTL
-  Extraction of high-level properties

-  Localization of code implementing specialized functionality
-  Hardware design evolution : feature integration, feature interactions

-  Innovative GUIs for design

-  Managing documentation of hardware designs

-  Analysis of interaction between hardware and software
-  Formal methods for design understanding

-  Scalable approaches to design understanding
Submission Instructions

 Prospective authors are requested to submit extended abstracts of 2 pages
or full papers of 6 pages in IEEE conference style. Authors of accepted
contributions are required to present their work at the workshop.  Informal
proceedings will be distributed electronically to the participants of the
workshop. The authors retain the copyright of their work and are free to
submit extended versions to a conference or journal.

Contributions have to be submitted through Easychair:
