The CAD Contest at ICCAD is a challenging, multi-month R&D competition, focusing on modern and practical problems at the forefront of Electronic Design Automation (EDA). In its sixth year, the 2017 CAD Contest at ICCAD is among the premier worldwide academic programming contests, attracting 122 teams from 10 different regions/countries. This year, three contest problems in the areas of ECO logic synthesis, ECO routing and placement legalization for the advanced nodes are called for competition. This session gives an overview of the 2017 CAD Contest, presents the three contest problems and benchmarks, and announces the winners. It also provides a venue for the top-performing teams to showcase their key ideas via short video presentations. Based on the momentum accumulated by EDA contests, a talk on OpenDesign Flow Database 2.0 concludes the session by reporting recent progress towards building an academic infrastructure for VLSI design and EDA research.
