Growing digitization of integrated circuits has contributed to making system-on-chips ever more complex. Yet, a substantial portion of a chip consists of analog and mixed-signal (AMS) circuits that provide critical functionality like clock generation, voltage regulation, interface with the external world, etc. Aggressive scaling of IC technologies as well as advancing the integration of heterogeneous physical domains on chip, substantially complicates the design of AMS components. On the one hand, their modeling and design becomes extremely complex. On the other hand, their interplay with the rest of the system-on-chip challenges design, verification and test.

These new technology trends bring enormous challenges and opportunities for AMS design automation. This is reflected by an increase in research activity on AMS CAD worldwide. The purpose of this workshop is to bring together academic and industrial researchers from both design and CAD communities to report recent advances and motivate new research topics and directions in this area. The workshop will feature a special theme of AI for AMS CAD this year.

Topics of interest include (but are not limited to):
Abstracts that address any of the aforementioned topics are invited. Abstracts addressing AMS CAD issues outside of these areas will also be of great interest to the workshop. They will be considered equally relevant in review process. The workshop will NOT publish official proceedings.
