Aims of the Conference:
ASP-DAC 2025 is the 30th annual international conference on VLSI design automation in Asia and South Pacific regions, one of the most active regions of design, CAD and fabrication of silicon chips in the world. The conference aims at providing the Asian and South Pacific CAD/DA and Design community with opportunities of presenting recent advances and with forums for future directions in technologies related to design and Electronic Design Automation (EDA). The format of the meeting intends to cultivate and promote an instructive and productive interchange of ideas among EDA researchers/developers and system/circuit/device designers. All scientists, engineers, and students who are interested in theoretical and practical aspects of VLSI design and design automation are welcomed to ASP-DAC. ASP-DAC recognizes excellent contributions with the Best Paper Award and 10-Year Retrospective Most Influential Paper Award. Selected papers will be invited to submit the extended version of their work to a Special Issue of Integration, the VLSI Journal.

Authors must submit full-length, original papers, with a maximum of 6 pages in PDF format and are recommended to format their papers based on the IEEE template. ASP-DAC does not allow double and/or parallel submissions of similar work to any other conferences, symposia, and journals. The submission must not include information that serves to identify the authors of the manuscript, such as name(s) or affiliation(s) of the author(s), anywhere in the manuscript, abstract, references and bibliographic citations. While research papers with open-source software are highly encouraged where the software will be made publicly available (via GitHub or similar), the authors’ identities need to be anonymized in the submitted paper for the double-blind review process. Issuing the paper as a technical report, posting the paper on a website, or presenting the paper at a workshop that does not publish formally reviewed proceedings, does not disqualify it from appearing in the proceedings. Note that each paper shall be accompanied by at least one different conference registration at the speaker’s registration rate (e.g., two speaker registrations are needed for presenting two accepted papers). But any registered co-author can present the work at the conference. ACM and IEEE reserve the right to exclude a paper from distribution after the conference (e.g., removal from ACM Digital Library and IEEE Xplore) if the paper is not presented at the conference by any author.

Submission of Papers:
- Deadline for Abstract submission: 5 PM AOE (Anywhere on earth) July 5 (Fri), 2024
- Deadline for PDF uploading: 5 PM AOE (Anywhere on earth) July 12 (Fri), 2024
- Announcement of accepted manuscript IDs: Sept. 7 (Sat), 2024
