The International Symposium on Physical Design , or ISPD is a yearly conference on the topic of electronic design automation , concentrating on algorithms for the physical design of integrated circuits .   It is Typically held in April or lycra year, in a city in the western United States. It is sponsored by the SIGDA of the Association for Computing Machinery and the IEEE Council on Electronic Design Automation (CEDA).
