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