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.

In 2020, ISPD will commemorate Dr. Louis K. Scheffer's contributions to physical design.


ISPD 2020 will be held in Taipei in Taiwan. There is a strong technical program including peer-reviewed papers, invited papers, and tutorials. Continuing the tradition of ISPD, we will have a contest and a great social program.
