Thank you for your overwhelming support of the 1997 International Symposium on Physical Design! This year's Symposium attracted more than 220 attendees from all over the world, who convened April 14-16 in Napa California to discuss critical issues in VLSI physical design. Activities at this year's Symposium are described in an article from EE Times.

Plans for next year's Symposium are already well underway; please visit the ISPD'98 website, for the latest information.

* The International Symposium on Physical Design provides a new and high-quality forum for the exchange of ideas and results in critical areas related to the physical design of VLSI systems. The Symposium is an outgrowth of the ACM/SIGDA Physical Design Workshops held during the years 1987-1996. Its scope includes all aspects of physical design, from interactions with behavior- and logic-level synthesis, to back-end performance analysis and verification.

* This year's inaugural Symposium focuses on the challenges of high-performance deep-submicron design, as well as the necessary interactions between physical design and higher-level synthesis tasks. An outstanding slate of technical papers has been selected for oral and poster presentation. These developments are complemented by invited presentations that set forth the contexts and visions for key areas -- process technology, system architecture, circuit design and design methodology -- with an emphasis on their implications for relevant R&D in physical design. The Symposium concludes with a panel of leading experts who each present their unique perspectives as to the critical R&D needs of the field.
