General Information

The International Symposium on Physical Design (ISPD) provides a premier forum to exchange ideas and promote innovative research in all aspects of physical design ranging from traditional topics for ASIC and FPGA designs to emerging technologies that impact physical design of integrated circuits (ICs). In 2024, ISPD was held at National Taiwan University in Taipei, Taiwan. The 33rd symposium has highlighted key new directions and leading-edge theoretical and experimental contributions to the field.

The 2024 International Symposium on Physical Design paid tribute to Prof. Martin D. F. Wong for his contributions to the physical design community.

ISPD 2025 will be held in Austin, TX. See you all in Austin next year!
