ACM International Symposium on Physical Design
with a tribute to Professor Malgorzata Marek-Sadowska
March 26-29, 2023, Virtual
Sponsored by ACM SIGDA with technical co-sponsorship from IEEE CEDA

The International Symposium on Physical Design (ISPD) provides a
premier forum to exchange ideas and promote innovative research in all
aspects of physical design ranging from traditional topics for ASIC
and FPGA designs to emerging technologies that impact physical design
of integrated circuits (ICs). In 2023, ISPD will be online with
virtual participation, with both live video and recorded sessions. The
32nd symposium will highlight key new directions and leading-edge
theoretical and experimental contributions to the field.

Physical design topics of interest include but are not limited to:
Floorplanning and interconnect planning
Partitioning, placement, and routing
Clock and power networks
Post layout and post-silicon optimization
Design for manufacturability and yield
Physical synthesis
Interactions with system and logic level design
Timing and power estimation, modeling, and optimization
Circuit analysis and optimization in a physical design context
Data management, multi-threaded/distributed algorithms
Hot topics such as machine learning and hardware security
3D ICs, quantum circuits, and other emerging technologies


Title and abstract submission deadline September 30, 2022
Full manuscript submission deadline October 7, 2022
Acceptance notification November 11, 2022
Camera-ready paper and speaker registration due January 30, 2023
Symposium March 26-29, 2023


All papers must be submitted electronically via Details will be
posted on the ISPD website, Authors must submit
full-length, original papers, with a maximum of 8 pages using the ACM
template,, in
PDF format. Failure to comply with the page length limit, format, or
the requirements below will result in the paper being rejected.

Previously published papers or papers currently submitted for
publication elsewhere will not be considered. If related papers have
been published or submitted elsewhere, clearly state the differences
in the current submission. All submitted papers will be under blind
review. They must not include the names or affiliations of the authors
in the paper, abstract, or in the embedded PDF data. References to the
authors’ works must be in the third person. Papers with open-source
software (e.g., on GitHub) are highly encouraged, but please do not
include a direct link to the non-anonymized software in your
submission, instead indicate the open-source contribution in the text.

The symposium proceedings will be published in the ACM Digital Library.
ISPD recognizes excellent contributions with a Best Paper Award,
selected from among the submitted papers. There is a US$1,000 award for
the best paper, and a smaller award for best paper candidates.

One speaker per accepted paper must register for ISPD 2023, provide
slides and videos of their presentation, and attend live discussions
in the online session. The slides will be published on the ISPD website.
The authors will retain the copyright for the slides and videos, which
will be posted on a private YouTube channel for ISPD 2023.

By submitting your article to an ACM Publication, you acknowledge that
you and your co-authors are subject to all ACM Publications Policies
including Research Involving Human Participants and Subjects (https://
Violations will be investigated by ACM and may result in a full
retraction of a paper, in addition to other potential penalties.

For an accepted paper, authors must obtain an ORCID ID to publish it.
( ACM is rolling this out as a requirement
in 2022 – please see the
frequently asked questions for more details.
( This is to
improve author discoverability, ensure proper attribution and help
community efforts around name normalization.
