Workshop Description
The ever increasing need for enhanced productivity in designing highly
complex electronic systems drives the evolution of design methods beyond the
traditional approaches. Virtual prototyping, design space exploration and
system synthesis with the goal of optimized and functionally correct product
implementation are needed for designing both HW and SW parts.
The system design teams expect newer and more efficient methods and tools
supporting better management of the design complexity and reduction of the
design cycle time all together, breaking the trend to compromise on the
evaluation of various design implementation options. Designing at higher
levels of abstraction is a viable way to better cope with the system design
complexity, to verify earlier in the design process and to increase code
The Electronic System Level Synthesis Conference ESLsyn focuses on automated
system design methods that enable efficient modelling of systems to provide
the capability to synthesize HW platforms and embedded software with
particular aspects related to synthesis.

Target Audience

This conference will provide an overview of existing and emerging solutions
provided by both industrial partners (EDA companies) and research
institutions in the domain of ESL synthesis. It will give an outline of
synthesis methods and tools available currently in the market and discuss
their applicability, performance, strengths and user experiences. Finally,
the event will create a discussion platform for experience exchange between
providers of synthesis technology and industry users, but also will be a
forum to discuss scientific concepts and paradigms for the future evolution
of synthesis methods.
