Call for Participation

ASP-DAC 2022 will be held as a fully virtual conference during January 17 - 20, 2022.
Pre-recorded videos are available during January 10 - 28, 2022.

Aims of the Conference

ASP-DAC has been the largest conference on Electronic Design Automation (EDA) for VLSI and systems in Asia and South-Pacific regions since 1995. ASP-DAC 2022 is the 27th edition, which offers an ideal opportunity to learn recent technologies and future directions of EDA and VLSI design. In addition to technical papers and tutorials, ASP-DAC also features a Designers' Forum for circuit designers to share their latest designs.

Considering the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, ASP-DAC 2022 will be held as a full virtual conference. Attendees can watch online videos or live streams during the conference period with interactive Q&As.


Registration is now open. You can register for the conference from here.
Please note that if you register before December 31, 2021, you can enjoy an early bird registration discount of NT$ 500-1000.

Designer’s Forum

The Designers' Forum offers a unique platform for LSI designers and EDA academia/developers to share design experience and solutions on real product developments. The topics include:

Session 3A: Key Drivers of Global Hardware Security
Session 5A: Compiler and Toolchain for Efficient AI Computation
Session 6A: AI for Chip Design and Testing
Session 8A: Empowering AI through Innovative Computing

Design Contest

The University LSI Design Contest (UDC) solicits state-of-the-art LSI and/or system designs from universities around the world to compete on design excellence and implementation quality.

9 high-quality designs with silicon proofs and measurements will be demonstrated in the UDC session.

Technical Sessions

ASP-DAC 2022 has 27 regular paper sessions consisting of 95 high-quality research papers, together with 5 special sessions on selected hot topics. Both interactive presentation and recorded video of each research work will be available online only for registered attendees.
