You are cordially invited to the EUROMICRO Conference on Digital System Design. An outstanding set of keynote addresses and a rich technical program, in the beautiful island of Madeira, are the main features of this year's edition.

The DSD conference addresses all aspects of (embedded, pervasive and high-performance) digital and mixed hardware/software system engineering, down to microarchitectures, digital circuits and VLSI techniques. It is a discussion forum for researchers and engineers from academia and industry working on state-of-the-art investigations, development and applications.

Madeira island is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and was considered Europe's Leading Island Destination in 2014. It combines breathtaking natural beauty, which invites sightseeing tours and walks in the mountains, with the calm appeal of a modern city like Funchal, and the ever present view of a magnificent deep blue sea. It definitely deserves an extended stay!


Oral presentation of 85 papers (31 in the main track and 54 in the special sessions) and presentation of 24 posters covering all aspects of digital systems design.
