In order to submit a synthesis tool, you need to register with the EDACC system. Once the account has been verified you are able to perform your tool (and benchmark) submission.

Preparation of tool Submissions

For a successful submission you will need a pdf file with the tool description (2 pages, IEEE style) and a zip file with the source code of the tool with the following structure and content:


The folder /code should contain the source code of the tool and all necessary scripts to build it. The script has to accomplish the following tasks:

create a folder /binary
compile or build the code
copy all necessary executables including scripts to the folder binary

Please test your script locally before submitting the code! Buggy build scripts will delay the testing of your tool considerably.

The content of the binary folder will be uploaded to the execution system and tested on the test set of the tracks where the tool has been submitted.

The readme.txt file should contain details about the tool (e.g. name, version, authors) and how to build and use the tool, as well as any kind of extra information needed to use the tool.

The licence.txt file should contain the license information. We do not require any particular type of licence, but the minimum requirement for the license is to contain the permission to use the tool for evaluation. If you are using source code of other tools please be sure to also include their license information in your license file.
