Pre-recorded videos are available from January 12 to 29.

Aims of the Conference

ASP-DAC is the largest conference in Asia and South-Pacific regions on Electronic Design Automation (EDA) area for VLSI and systems. ASP-DAC has been started at 1995 and this ASP-DAC 2021 is 26th conference. ASP-DAC 2021 offers you an ideal opportunity to touch the recent technologies and the future directions on the LSI design and design automation areas by technical papers and tutorials. ASP-DAC also holds Designers' Forum to make presentations about the latest designs for designers. Please do not miss ASP-DAC 2021.

Considering the continued COVID-19 pandemic situation, ASP-DAC 2021 will be held as a fully virtual conference. Therefore, you do not need an expense of travel and the staying. And as almost all sessions will be the on demand streaming, you can watch the videos anytime during available period and have Q&As with chat tool.

Designer’s Forum

Designer’s Forum is conceived as a unique program that shares the design experience and solutions of real product developments among LSI designers and EDA academia/developers. The topics discussed in the forum include New-principle computer, Advanced sensing technology and automotive application, Emerging open design platform, and Technological utilization in COVID 19 pandemic.

Design Contest

In University LSI Design Contest, state-of-the-art LSI and/or system designs compete on their design excellence and implementation quality. 16 high-quality designs all including actual measurement proof will be introduced at the UDC session.

Technical Sessions

There are 111 high quality papers selected from 327 submissions. We also plan 8 special sessions. Technical program is available here.
