Institute for Communication Technologies and Embedded Systems

Call for Participation in the International Workshop on Solutions for Multicore Debug 2015

SMD 2015 (previously known as S4D and MAD)

December 8, 2015 Hilton City Center, Munich, Germany from 9:00 to 16:30

Registration is open!

The Multicore Application Debugging (MAD) Workshop team and the System, Software, SoC and Silicon Debug (S4D) Conference team are pleased to announce the merge of both events to form the new International Workshop on Solutions for Multicore Debug (SMD). In this way we strengthen our core idea to bring together the brightest minds in academia and industry on the subject of debugging in one place.
