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 2020, the 29th symposium will highlight key new directions and leading-edge theoretical and experimental contributions to the field.

ISPD will not be held in Taiwan in 2020 due to coronavirus travel restrictions.

The accepted papers, presentation slides, and videos will be available online.

Our priority is the safety and well-being of attendees. We have canceled ISPD 2020 based on information from the World Health Organisation and the Center for Disease Control.

ISPD 2020 had a strong technical program with peer-reviewed papers, invited papers, and tutorials. Continuing the tradition of ISPD, we had a great contest - the winner of which will be announced on June 19th.

Accepted and invited papers for ISPD 2020 were published, and are freely available in the ACM digital library until June 30th.

Congratulations for the best paper award to Wei Ye, Mohamed Baker Alawieh, Yuki Watanabe, Shigeki Nojima, Yibo Lin, and David Z. Pan for their paper, “TEMPO: Fast Mask Topography Effect Modeling with Deep Learning”.

Congratulations for first place in the Wafer-Scale Deep Learning Accelerator Placement contest to Bentian Jiang, Jingsong Chen, Jinwei Liu, Xiaopeng Zhang, Fangzhou Wang, Lixin Liu, and Evangeline F.Y. Young from the Chinese University of Hong Kong.
