    Embedded system security and security validation
    System-level design and hardware/software co-design
    High-level synthesis, logic synthesis, communication synthesis
    Embedded real-time systems and real-time operating systems
    Rapid system prototyping, performance analysis and estimation
    Formal models, transformations, algorithm transformations and metrics

Development Platforms, Architectures and Technologies

    Embedded platforms for multimedia and telecom
    Many-core and multi-processor systems, SoCs, and NoCs
    Reconfigurable ASIPs, FPGAs, and dynamically reconfigurable systems
    Overlay architectures, languages and compilers
    Memory system and cache management
    Asynchronous (self-timed) circuits and analog and mixed-signal circuits

Custom embedded architectures and systems

    Deep learning architectures for inference and training
    Systems for autonomous vehicles : cars, drones, ships and space applications
    Smart cameras, security systems, behaviour recognition
    Data Center processing : special routing, configurable
      co-processors and low energy considerations
    Real-time cryptography, secure computing, financial and personal
      data processing
    Computer arithmetic, approximate computing, probabilistic
      computing, nanocomputing, bio-inspired computing
    Biological data collection and analysis, bioinformatics
    Personal digital assistants, natural language processing, wearable
      computing and implantable devices
    Global navigation satellite and inertial navigation systems

DASIP 2018 will feature Special Sessions with the purpose of
introducing the DASIP community to relevant hot topics. Proposals
should be sent via email to the Program Chairs no later than March 2nd

During the DASIP 2018 Demo Night, universities and public research
institutes are invited to demonstrate their hardware platforms,
prototypes and tools. Authors should submit their full papers (up to 2
pages, double-column IEEE format) in PDF through the web based
submission system. Accepted Demo Night papers containing new
scientific results have the option to be submitted for inclusion in
the IEEE Digital Xplore Library (To be confirmed).

Special session proposal deadline: March 2, 2018
Paper submission deadline:         May 25, 2018
Regular paper notification of acceptance: July 6, 2018
Demo Night paper submission: June 8, 2018
Demo night papers notification of acceptance: July 12, 2018
Camera ready papers: September 7, 2018

Authors should submit their full papers (up to 6 pages, double-column
IEEE format) in PDF through the web based submission system (Demo
Night - 2 pages). Submitted papers are required to describe original
unpublished work and must not be under consideration for publication
elsewhere. Submissions must be fully anonymous, but authors should not
hide previous work, instead, they need to make self-references in the
third person.  Full submission requirements, templates and submission
instructions can be found at:

Each submission will receive at least three independent double blind
reviews from the members of our scientific committee. Authors of
accepted papers must address those comments in the camera ready
version and present it in the conference prior to its publication. The
conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in the IEEE
Xplore Digital Library (To be confirmed). Paper and keynote
presentation slides and tutorial documents will be made available to
conference attendees after the conference (subject to confidentiality
issues). Authors of the best papers will be invited to submit an
extended version of their work to a Journal of Signal Processing
Systems special issue.


Proposals for tutorials will be accepted depending on topic relevance
and evidence of a comprehensive agenda. A one-page description of the
tutorial including title, presenters, contents, and the relevant
track(s) should be sent to
