Following recent editions of the SMACD Conference, SMACD 2017 will hold an event where MSc and PhD students can compete with their best ideas, methodologies, flows and tools with one unique but challenging goal:
“Improving design automation for integrated circuits and systems”.
Topics of interest include modeling, simulation and synthesis for analog, mixed-signal, RF, multidomain (such as MEMS, nanoelectronic, optoelectronic, biological).
To enter the competition, all participants must submit a paper (following the same SMACD 2017 submission guidelines) with a description of the methodology and/or tool, the design problem of their choice and the solution provided by their methodology and/or tool.
The first author of the submission and presenter at the conference must be a MSc or a PhD student!
A $1,000 prize will be granted to the winner of the competititon!
PRIZE CO-SPONSORED BY:
A Judging Committee will select the winner(s) based on the quality of the paper, of its presentation at the conference and the live demonstration, using the following criteria:
All accepted submissions in the competition will be presented by the students in a special session at the conference and published in the conference proceedings.
The presenters are required to perform a live demo. SMACD organization guarantees internet connection to all participants but required CAD tools or design kits licensing is in responsibility of each participant.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee of the 14th International Conference on Synthesis, Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Methods and Applications to Circuit Design, we are honoured to have the participation of the following members of the Competition Jury:
