The 2nd Brazilian Programming Contest for Design Automation of Integrated Circuits (CADathlon Brasil 2022) is a programming competition that focuses on techniques and tools for EDA (Electronic Design Automation). It is inspired by the ACM/SIGDA CADathlon, which occurs annually as one of the events associated with the ACM/IEEE ICCAD (International Conference on Computer-Aided Design). As in the first edition, which occurred in 2010, the teams, formed by couples of graduate and/or undergraduate students, will work to solve 6 programming problems related to EDA techniques that are prepared by collaborators that work in EDA companies and/or in academia. Three weeks prior to the contests the teams will receive the topics and the related literature, but the problems themselves will be detailed only in the contest session, on August 2. The problems will be solved using C++, Python and possibly other languages, as informed prior to the contest day.
CADathlon Brasil 2022 will occur in person, as one of the satellite events of the 42nd Annual Congress of the SBC (Brazilian Computer Society), in “Instituto de Computação”, campus of Universidade Federal Fluminense (UFF), Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro State, on August 2nd.
The topics of the problems are related to EDA, and include:
The CADathlon Brasil 2022 Organizing Committee is pleased to announce the availability of financial support for travel and accomodation for the participating teams, thanks to our sponsors Synopsys Inc. and Chipus Microeletrônica S.A. The teams interested in benefiting from this support must mark this option in the pre-registration form* (see step 2 of the “Registration Instructions”).
* Subject resource to availability
Observation: according to SBC rules, all participants of the satellit events (as the CADathlon Brasil 2022) must be registered at CSBC.
** Please note: in the “Additional Activities” section, check “CADathlon Brasil 2022”
*** The members of the top 2 teams will receive the tickets for the official CSBC 2022 dinner as part of their prizes.
Important notice: due to infrastructure limitation, the number of teams is limited to 15.
Language: The official language is Portuguese.
Teams. Each team must be formed by two graduate or undergraduate students regularly registered in Computer Science/Engineering courses or related areas. Due to infrastructure limitation, the number of teams is limited to 15.
Registration. According to SBC rules, every person attending the Congress of the SBC (CSBC) satellite (fringe) events must be registered to the main event, i.e., the CSBC itself. Please refer to the section “Registration Instructions” section for detailed information on the registration procedure.
Prizes. The 1st or 2nd place teams will be granted R$ 1,500.00 (one thousand five hundred Brazilian reais) and R$ 1,000.00 (one thousand Brazilian reais) prizes, respectively, to be given by the Platinum Sponsor Synopsys in the official CSBC 2022 dinner, on August 3rd, 2022. The top 2 teams will also be invited to participate in the CADAthlon @ ICCAD, provided that they have solved a minimum number of problems.
Computational Infrastructure. Every team will be granted access to a computer with Ubuntu Linux standard installation, including development tools and other software infrastructure required to solve the problems. The exact configuration will be announced in the week previous to the contest.
Problem Definition. The list of topics to which the problems belong will be made available on the date specified in the event schedule (July 22, 2022). Supporting bibliography and any other material will also be made available by the same date. The problems will be prepared by a team of international researchers from industry and academia. The teams are encouraged to study those topics and train their algorithmic implementations prior to the contest by using the provided material.
Contest Realization. The contest will occur as a one-day event, beginning at 9 a.m. of August 2, 2022, in a laboratory of “Instituto de Computação”, in the UFF (Universidade Federal Fluminense) campus, in Niteroi, Rio de Janeiro state, with the presence of the judging board, and will respect procedures and rules to be disclosed on site for submission of solutions.
Other rules and necessary information will be updated here.
