The Student Research Forum at the ASP-DAC is renovated from a traditional poster session hosted by ACM SIGDA for Ph.D. students to present and discuss their dissertation research with experts in system design and design automation community. Starting from 2015, the forum includes both Ph.D. and M.S. students, offering great opportunities for the students to establish contacts for their future career. In addition, the forum helps the companies and academic institutes to get an overview of the latest research and discover the extraordinary candidates for their employment.
SRF@ASP-DAC 2021 is held as a virtual forum for the first time due to COVID-19. The forum is composed of 28 excellent posters from Asia, Europe and North America and 2 industry talks. We will adopt Microsoft Teams as an integrated online platform of the forum. The following functions are provided in the integrated platform:
The forum welcomes all students, professors and industrial professionals from the relevant research community.
Topic: STICKER-T: An Energy Efficient Neural Network Processor Using Block-Circulant Algorithm and Unified Frequency-Domain Acceleration
Presenters: Jinshan Yue and Yongpan Liu, Tsinghua University, China
Topic: Pearl: Performance-Aware Wear Leveling for Non-volatile FPGAs
Presenters: Hao Zhang and Mengying Zhao, Shandong University, China
Topic: Efficient Post-Silicon Debug Framework for Network-on-Chip
Presenters: Sidhartha Sankar Rout and Sujay Deb, Indraprastha Institute of Information Technology Delhi, India
The online platform will be made accessible by all the forum attendees from January 10 to January 31, 2021. You can read the posters, watch the video and leave text messages in the “Posts” tab of each Channel. You can communicate with the student presenters by sending them text messages.
In addition to a poster, each student presenter has pre-recorded a short video in up to 2 minutes to briefly summarize the thesis and a long video in up to 20 minutes to elaborate it in detail. Participants could watch the short videos to get the main ideas and contributions efficiently while further watch the long videos to know more details if interested. The posters and videos are accessible from January 10 to January 31, 2021 (free registration is needed).
There will be a two-hour online live session during 21:00-23:00, January 19, 2021 (JST). The time is selected to fit worldwide attendees including professors and students from Asia, Europe and North America. The student presenter of each poster will attend the whole two-hour live session. Attendees can join in a “Meeting” hosted by the corresponding presenter in each Channel for a real-time video/audio interaction. More details of the live session will be updated later.
The forum is free of charge, but registration is needed to join the Microsoft Teams-based online platform for security considerations.

The Student Research Forum at the ASP-DAC is renovated from a traditional poster session hosted by ACM SIGDA for PhD students to present and discuss their dissertations with experts in the design automation community. Starting from 2015, the forum includes both PhD and MS students, offering great opportunity for the students to establish contacts for their future career. In addition, the forum helps the companies and academic institutes to get an overview of the latest research and discover the extraordinary candidates for their employment.
Considering ASP-DAC 2021 is going virtual due to COVID-19, SRF@ASP-DAC 2021 will be held as a virtual forum. The forum welcomes all students, professors and industrial professionals from the relevant research community. To encourage PhD students participating in important EDA events, this year, the forum will offer a free registration to the ASP-DAC 2021 conference at the student rate for each accepted submission.
A two-page PDF abstract of the dissertation (in two-column format, using 10pt. fonts and single-spaced lines), including name, institution, adviser, contact information, estimated (or actual) graduation date, whether the work has been presented at DAC PhD Forum or DATE PhD Forum, as well as figures and bibliography (if applicable). The two-page limit on the abstract will be strictly enforced: any material beyond the second page will be ignored by the reviewers. Each accepted abstract has to prepare a poster and a short video presentation, and the student has to attend the forum virtually for real-time interactions.
To be considered for awards, a student must explicitly indicate, in the title of the two-page abstract, the venues for which the work was published or accepted, and a list of all papers authored or co-authored by the student should be included in the bibliography of the two-page abstract. The papers must be related to the dissertation topic. Those on topics unrelated to the dissertation abstract will not be considered.
