Virtual Conference

General Information

The International Symposium on Physical Design provides a premier forum to exchange ideas and promote research on critical areas related to the physical design of VLSI systems. All aspects of physical design, including its interactions with architecture, behavioral and logic-level synthesis, and back-end performance analysis and verification are within the scope of the symposium. Target domains include semi-custom and full-custom ICs, ASICs, FPGAs, and systems-on-chip/systems-in-package. In 2021, the 30th symposium will highlight key new directions and leading-edge theoretical and experimental contributions to the field. We will also pay tribute to Dr. Louis K. Scheffer's outstanding contributions to physical design.
