ACM SIGDA Student Research Forum at ASP-DAC 2022 (SRF@ASP-DAC 2022)

Call for Submission:
SIGDA Student Research Forum at ASP-DAC 2022 (SRF@ASP-DAC 2022)

The Student Research Forum at the ASP-DAC is renovated from a traditional poster session hosted by ACM SIGDA for PhD students to present and discuss their dissertations with experts in the design automation community. Starting from 2015, the forum includes both PhD and MS students, offering great opportunity for the students to establish contacts for their future career. In addition, the forum helps the companies and academic institutes to get an overview of the latest research and discover the extraordinary candidates for their employment.

SRF@ASP-DAC 2022 will be held as a virtual forum. The forum welcomes all students, professors and industrial professionals from the relevant research community. To encourage students participating in important EDA events, this year, the forum will offer a free registration to the ASP-DAC 2022 conference at the student rate for each accepted submission.


  • Students must be within 1 year (M.S.) or 2 years (Ph.D.) of dissertation completion or have completed their dissertation during the last 12 months.
  • Dissertation topic must be relevant to the ASP-DAC community.
  • Previous ASP-DAC forum presenters are not eligible.
  • Students who have presented previously at DAC/DATE PhD forums are eligible.
  • Only students with at least one published or accepted conference, symposium or journal “full” paper are eligible for awards.
  • Students must attend the forum virtually to present the poster in person without substitute presentations, or else please contact the SRF Chair in advance.

A two-page PDF abstract of the dissertation (in two-column format, using 10pt. fonts and single-spaced lines), including name, institution, adviser, contact information, estimated (or actual) graduation date, whether the work has been presented at DAC PhD Forum or DATE PhD Forum, as well as figures and bibliography (if applicable). The two-page limit on the abstract will be strictly enforced: any material beyond the second page will be ignored by the reviewers. Each accepted abstract has to prepare a poster and a short video presentation, and the student has to attend the forum virtually for real-time interactions. To be considered for awards, a student must explicitly indicate, in the title of the two-page abstract, the venues for which the work was published or accepted, and a list of all papers authored or co-authored by the student should be included in the bibliography of the two-page abstract. The papers must be related to the dissertation topic. Those on topics unrelated to the dissertation abstract will not be considered.
