SMACD 2022 EDA Competition

SMACD 2022 will again hold the thrilling and dynamic EDA Competition for M.Sc. and Ph.D. students. The candidates must submit a 4-page paper, similar to regular submissions, but will present a live demo during the conference to that will be evaluated by an independent committee.

The winners will become the newest members of SMACD’s hall of fame and take the 1000$ prize sponsored by IEEE CEDA!!

Paper Publication

SMACD 2022 is technically co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE CASS and IEEE CEDA. The conference proceedings will be included in IEEExplore.

Special Issue

We have the pleasure to inform you that the top-ranked papers in both conferences, SMACD 2022 and PRIME 2022, will be invited to submit extended versions for a Special Issue of Integration, the VLSI Journal, from Elsevier.

Call For Papers

The 2022 edition of the International Conference on Synthesis, Modeling, Analysis and Simulation Methods, and Applications to Circuit Design (SMACD) will be held in Villasimius, Sardinia, Italy. SMACD is a forum devoted to modeling, simulation, and synthesis for Analog, Mixed-signal, RF (AMS/RF), and multi-domain (nanoelectronics, biological, MEMS, optoelectronics, etc.) integrated circuits and systems. Open-source tools and methods for AMS/RF and multi-domain IC design and experiences with modeling, simulation, and synthesis techniques in diverse application areas are also welcomed. Objective technologies include CMOS, beyond CMOS, and More-than-Moore such as MEMs, power devices, sensors, passives, etc.

SMACD 2022 is Technically Co-sponsored by IEEE, IEEE CEDA and IEEE CAS. The conference proceedings will be submitted for inclusion in IEEExplore.

SMACD 2022 will be co-located with the International Conference on PhD Research in Microelectronics and Electronics (PRIME 2022), bringing together well-known researchers, institutions and companies from the IC Design and EDA communities.
