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, regular fabrics, FPGAs, and systems-on-chip / systems-in-package. Following its twenty-five predecessors, the 2017 symposium will highlight key new directions and leading-edge theoretical and experimental contributions to the field. The ACM Press will publish accepted papers in the Symposium proceedings.

** ISPD will recognize excellent contributions through a Best Paper Award. 
** There will also be a special issue in ACM TODAES for ISPD 2017 papers. 

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:
- Floorplanning and interconnect planning 
- Partitioning, placement and routing 
- Physical design for manufacturability and yield 
- Synthesis optimizations within physical design 
- Estimation and modeling 
- Timing and crosstalk issues in physical design 
- Special structures for clocking and power networks
- Physical design for emerging process technologies 
- Interactions with system and logic level design
- Analysis and management of power dissipation
- Management of design data and constraints
- New physical design methodologies
- Physical design for FPGAs
- Circuit performance measurements in a PD context
- Multithreaded/distributed algorithms for physical design
- Hardware security related physical design

Continuing the tradition of spirited competition for the previous twelve ISPD contests, a contest will be held in ISPD 2017. Details will be announced on our website later.

The symposium will pay a tribute to Professor Satoshi Goto, the winner of the 2017 ISPD Lifetime Achievement Award.
