The edaWorkshop21 originally planned as a face-to-face event in Hannover has been held as a online event free of charge on December 1st, 2021. In view of the dramatic development of the infection situation in autumn 2021, the edacentrum made this decision out of a sense of responsibility towards all participants of the event as well as the entire population. Extremely impressive was the continued great interest of the community in an intensive professional exchange in presence. The edacentrum will offer this again as soon as possible, probably with edaWorkshop22 in June 2022 .


In 2021, the edaWorkshop again offered a highly interesting technical programme of a total of three sessions (supplemented by several sessions in the RISC-V Activities Workshop), but shortened to one day. With seven invited talks and a panel discussion, the edaWorkshop as itself spanned topics from trustworthy electronics and supply chains, open source IP and EDA up to AI for EDA.

The detailed program of the edaWorkshop21 can be found here.

The RISC-V Activities Workshop was sponsored by edacentrum and the Scale4Edge project. As a training partner of the RISC-V Foundation, edacentrum actively promotes the exploitation of RISC-V research results. For this purpose, edacentrum offered free participation in this workshop (detailed program here).

About edaWorkshop

The edaWorkshop is the central German event on electronics, design and applications (EDA). It offers best conditions for publication and discussion of application-oriented EDA research results. The balanced presence of science and application creates ideal opportunities for professional exchange with scientific claim, combined with industrial benefit. Particularly noteworthy is the strong presence of leading industrial companies, which enables a wide range of collaborations to translate research results into economic benefits. If you would like to know how things are going at the edaWorkshop, take a look at one of the picture galeries from past events.

At the same time, the edaWorkshop is also the central event for the exchange of results for all BMBF-funded projects in the field of electronics, design and applications. It serves the communication between experts and the funding body and supports the transfer of results in publicly funded research and development projects (more information (Germen only)).

Since its foundation in 2007, the edaWorkshop ( to the history) has attracted more than 100 participants every year.

Financial concept

The edaWorkshop is organized as collaboration event for experts in the field. All attendees benefit from the intensive information exchange and share the cost, which will be kept low. It is a nonprofit event, the local organisers do not get any compensation for their work. Most attendees contribute actively to the event, e.g. as speaker or panelist, therefore free participation is not possible.

Use the opportunity for a professional exchange between science and application!

We look forward to welcoming you to the edaWorkshop22.
