Chip Design Contest

The purpose of the ISOCC 2021 Chip Design Contest is to promote excellence in the design of IP and SoC by providing competition among students from universities and colleges. This contest is a great opportunity to introduce new IPs and design activities of their laboratories. The Chip Design Contest is sponsored by IDEC (IC Design Education Center) in Korea. Since the paper in the field of CDC is not the formal (regular) paper approved by ISOCC, it is not included in the conference proceedings.
