SystemC Evolution Day 2022

Workshop on the Evolution of SystemC Standards, held on 8 December 2022

The seventh SystemC Evolution Day is a full-day, technical workshop on the evolution of SystemC standards to advance the SystemC ecosystem. In several in-depth sessions, selected current and future standardization topics around SystemC will be discussed in order to accelerate their progress for inclusion in Accellera/IEEE standards.

SystemC Evolution Day is intended as a lean, user-centric, hands-on forum bringing together experts from the SystemC user community and the Accellera Working Groups to advance SystemC standards.

Event information

Date: 8 December 2022 (day after DVCon Europe 2022)
Time: 09:30 - 17:30 CET
Location: Holiday Inn Munich City Centre, Hochstrasse 3, 81669 Munich, Germany

Organization Team:

  • Ola Dahl, Ericsson (Chair)
  • Martin Barnasconi, NXP
  • Jerome Cornet, STMicroelectronics
  • Christian Sauer, Cadence
  • Mark Burton, Qualcomm
  • Peter de Jager, Intel


The main theme this year is Evolution and Ecosystem: Besides the developments of the SystemC standard and its implementations, we like to broaden our view to see and learn how SystemC is used, or could be used, in other system modeling and simulation environments around us.

Exploring this bigger ecosystem, and understanding the role of SystemC in such ecosystem, is vital to identify new requirements and features to be developed as part of the SystemC ecosystem or beyond, by means of adapters, interfaces or other intercommunication concepts.


NOTE: Since this was a face-to-face event without recording, there are no videos available.
