The CAD contests at ICCAD and associated benchmark suites have been instrumental in advancing the state-of-the-art in EDA. Additionally, they have fostered productive industry-academia collaboration. In its fourth year, the 2015 CAD contest is among the largest worldwide EDA contests, attracting 112 teams from 12 regions/countries. This year's contest is a challenging, multi-month, research and development competition, focusing on advanced, real-world problems in the three areas of system level design, logic synthesis & verification, and physical design. This special session presents the three contest problems, releases the associated benchmarks, and announces the winners. The session also provides a venue for the top-performing teams to showcase their key ideas via short video presentations.
