2019 Initial Detailed Routing Contest

The 2019 ISPD contest augments the 2018 ISPD initial detailed routing problem by adding more realistic design rule settings faced by physical design practitioners in the industry. Assuming that a global routing result input is already optimized for certain metrics (e.g., timing), a detailed router needs to honor the global routing result as much as possible. The goal of the initial detailed router is to generate a detailed routing solution that resolves most design rule violations while improving (or minimally degrading) these already optimized for metrics.
