The CAD Contest at ICCAD (https://iccad-contest.org/) is a challenging, multi-month, research & development competition, focusing on advanced, real-world problems in the field of Electronic Design Automation (EDA). Contestants can participate in one or more problems provided by EDA/IC industry. The winners will be awarded at an ICCAD special session dedicated to this contest. Since 2012, the CAD Contest at ICCAD has been attracting more than a hundred teams per year, fostering productive industry-academia collaborations, and leading to hundreds of publications in top-tier conferences and journals. The contest keeps enhancing its impact and boosts EDA research. This session will give an overview of the CAD Contest at ICCAD, present the three contest problems of 2019 CAD Contest to the EDA community, announce the contest results, and introduce a verified robust academic design flow from logic synthesis to physical design. The session will contain five presentations: The contest chair will first give a brief introduction to the contest. Afterwards, three topic chairs will introduce each of the contest problems and benchmark suites, announce the contest results, and present awards to the winners. The topic chairs will also play some video clips provided by Top-X teams which present key ideas and algorithms of their solutions to the contest problems. Finally, the Design Automation Technical Committee (DATC) of IEEE CEDA will introduce a reference design flow in academia.
