Call for Papers ASP-DAC 2017

22nd Asia and South Pacific Design Automation Conference, Jan. 16-19, 2017

Chiba/Tokyo(Makuhari Messe Convention), Japan 

Aims of the Conference:

ASP-DAC 2017 is the 22nd annual international conference on VLSI design automation in Asia and South Pacific regions, one of the most active regions of design and fabrication of silicon chips in the world. The conference aims at providing the Asian and South Pacific CAD/DA and Design community with opportunities of presenting recent advances and with forums for future directions in technologies related to Electronic Design Automation (EDA). The format of the meeting intends to cultivate and promote an instructive and productive interchange of ideas among EDA researchers/developers and system/circuit/device designers. All scientists, engineers, and students who are interested in theoretical and practical aspects of VLSI design and design automation are welcomed to ASP-DAC.
