Following the recent editions of the SMACD Conference, SMACD 2016 will hold an event where MSc and PhD students can compete with their best ideas, methodologies, flows and tools with one unique but challenging goal: “Improve design automation for analog, mixed-signal, RF, and multi-domain (MEMs, nanoelectronic, optoelectronic, biological, etc.) integrated circuits and systems!”
To enter the Competition all participants must submit a paper (following the SMACD 2016 submission guidelines) with a clear description of their methodology and/or tool, the design problem of their choice, and the solution provided by the methodology and/or tool. The first author of the submission and presenter at the conference must be a MSc or a PhD student!
A Judging Committee will select the winner(s) based on the quality of the paper, of its presentation at the conference and the live demonstration, using the following criteria:
All accepted submissions in the competition will be presented by the students in a special session at the conference and published in the conference proceedings.
