The ever-increasing increasing need for enhanced productivity in designing highly complex electronic systems drives the evolution of design methods beyond the traditional approaches. To cover functional and especially non-functional requirements should be checked on a design model and covered during the design process. Virtual prototyping, design space exploration and system synthesis with the goal of optimized and functionally correct product implementations 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 reuse.

The Electronic System Level Synthesis Conference - ESLsyn is a forum to discuss automated system design methods that enable efficient modeling of systems to provide the capability to synthesize HW platforms and embedded software with particular aspects related to synthesis. The main aim of the conference is to bring research institutions and industrial partners in the domain of ESL synthesis closer together by informing practitioners of the latest theoretical results, and challenging theoreticians with complex industrial problems. ESLsyn wants to provide 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. It therefore welcomes both academic and industrial participants.
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 design and synthesis. It will give an outline of synthesis methods and tools currently available in the market and discuss their applicability, performance, strengths and user experiences. Finally, the event will create a platform to foster discussion and exchange between providers of synthesis technology and industry users, as well as as serving as a forum to discuss scientific concepts and paradigms for the future evolution of synthesis methods.


ESLsyn 2013 is organized with the techincal co-sponsorship of CEDA.
