Why the extended scope of PATMOS is important

        

   

 

  

The PATMOS workshop series originated from technical meetings of the European PATMOS ESPRIT basic research project, founded by Prof. Reiner Hartenstein at TU Kaiserslautern. PATMOS stands for "Power And Timing Modeling Optimization and Simulation". PATMOS workshops have over the years evolved into a well established and outstanding series of open European events on power and timing at the logical and physical level of design.

Founded in 1990 PATMOS is the oldest international conference series on Low Power Design of integrated circuits, 3 years elder than its American sister conference ISPLED. Within this scope design issues and CAD related topics are covered. The availability of deep sub-micron technology has recently increased interest especially in low-power design and hence gives an additional momentum to the interest in this workshop. This development has also extended the scope of  PATMOS to higher levels of abstraction in particular for power optimization. Despite its growth, the workshop can still be considered as an informal but very focused conference featuring high level scientific presentations together with open discussions and panel sessions in a free and easy environment. This special atmosphere has proven to be an excellent origin of new ideas and interesting co-operations and projects.

The PATMOS project ended with 1993 since the commission of the EU stopped funding low power design. But the commission  resumed funding 5 years later by about 1997. The former Bundeskanzler Helmut Schmidt called such a policy "management by potatoes" (in German: "rein in die Kartoffeln, raus aus den Kartoffeln"). The new consortium is: The European Low Power and Mixed Signal Initiative, which  has been organised through a concerted action ESD-LPD/MSD to which design experiments (ESPRIT projects) contribute. DIMES at University of Delft has acted as the main contractor and global project coordinator.  This way management by potatoes could have become the reason, that Europe may have got 2 competing international conference series on low power design: PATMOS and ESDLPD. But only PATMOS has survived.
