21st IEEE International Symposium
on Design and Diagnostics of Electronic Circuits and Systems
The IEEE International Symposium on Design and Diagnostics of Electronic Circuits and Systems provides a forum for exchanging ideas, discussing research results, and presenting practical applications in the areas of design, test, and diagnosis of electronic circuits and systems. The DDECS Symposium series has been organized by these European countries: Hungary (2001, 2005), Austria (2010), Germany (2011,2017), Estonia (2012), Czech Republic (1997, 2002, 2006, 2009, 2013), Poland (1998, 2003, 2007, 2014), Serbia (2015) and Slovakia (2000, 2004, 2008, 2016).
Call For Papers
Prospective authors are cordially invited to submit original papers to the Symposium. Papers in English with a length of 6 pages maximum in IEEE conference style are expected. Specialized student and industrial sessions, as well as embedded tutorials, will be organized at the symposium. Accepted papers will be included in the Symposium Proceedings and submitted for inclusion into IEEE Xplore as well as other Abstracting and Indexing databases (WoS, Scopus, etc). An extra work-in-progress session will be targeted to get early feedback on in-progress research and preliminary results (these papers will not be included in IEEE Xplore).
DDECS covers the areas of design and testing of electronic components, both digital and analog. The topics include the following but are not limited to:
The camera-ready papers are uploaded using ConfTool.
All the accepted papers (oral presentations as well as poster presentations) will be included in the proceedings and will be published in the IEEE Xplore digital library, except for the work-in-progress papers.
The final manuscript length of the accepted papers is 6 pages in case of regular papers (both oral and poster presentations) and 4 pages in case of student papers.
In order to prepare the camera-ready version of your paper please follow these steps:
Address the comments from reviewers in the camera-ready paper.
Modify your paper if necessary to comply with the final manuscript page limit specified in the Paper Format section. Format of the paper must follow the IEEE conference proceedings guidelines (two-column format, A4 page size).
For successful submission your camera-ready PDF files must comply with IEEE Xplore standards. For this reason please verify your PDF file with the IEEE PDF eXpress tool (Conference ID: # 43284).
All accepted papers will be checked against plagiarism. In the case a paper does not contain at least 90% of original work, it will not be published in the conference proceedings.
Fill in and sign the IEEE Copyright Form in ConfTool
At least one author of the paper is required to register and pay the conference fee before the early registration deadline and to present the paper/poster. Registration will be possible after the paper acceptance deadline.
Authors' not following the instructions may result in their paper not being included in the proceedings.
Work-in-progress papers will be accepted for oral presentation. At least one author of the paper is required to register and pay the work-in-progress registration fee and to present the paper.
These papers will be included in the Informal DDECS 2018 Proceedings with a non-IEEE ISBN number. The Proceedings will be distributed electronically to all DDECS 2018 participants.
The papers should not exceed 6 pages in the IEEE two-column format.
The submission of your camera-ready PDF file is adviced to be verified/generated with the IEEE PDF eXpress tool (Conference ID: # 43284).
No copyright transfer will be required.
