Call for Participation

The International Symposium on Physical Design provides a premier forum to exchange ideas and promote research on the physical design of VLSI systems. ISPD 2022 will feature state-of-the-art research from across the globe on traditional physical design topics related to ASIC and FPGA as well as emerging technologies in the area. For ISPD 2022, there will be a mix of in-person and virtual participation, with live video and recorded sessions for those connecting virtually. We will also pay tribute to Ricardo Reis (Federal University of Rio Grande do Sul, Brazil) for his instrumental impact on EDA research in South America and contributions to the physical design community.

ISPD 2022 will be held online due to the current COVID-19 situation.

We should note that at least one author of each accepted paper has to register.

Topics of interest include but are not limited to:

Floorplanning and interconnect planning Physical design for emerging technologies such as 3D ICs
Partitioning, placement, and routing Hardware security-related physical design
Clock and power networks Interactions with system and logic level design
Timing and power estimation and modeling Data management, multi-threaded/distributed algorithms
Design for manufacturability and yield Circuit analysis in a physical design context
Physical synthesis Machine learning for physical design

English and Chinese versions of the call for papers are available: English Traditional Chinese Simplified Chinese.
