Students and Post-Docs Receive CAD Contest Prize

ECE students Mehmet Isgenc and Joe Sweeney with post-docs Mayler Martins and Sam Pagliarini won first place at the International Conference in Computer-Aided Design (ICCAD) CAD contest. The team, under the guidance of ECE professor Larry Pileggi, took first place in Problem C: Pattern Classification for Integrated Circuit Design Space Analysis, with a $5000 prize. The 2016 CAD Contest at ICCAD is a challenging, multi-month, research and development competition, focused on advanced, real-world problems in the field of Electronic Design Automation. Multi-person teams from across the world compete in the contest.
