The "CAD Contest at ICCAD"is a challenging, multi-month, research and development competition, focusing on advanced, realworld problems in the field of electronic design automation (EDA). Since 2012, the contest has been publishing many sophisticated circuit design problems, from system-level design to physical design, together with industrial benchmarks and solution evaluators. Contestants can participate in one or more problems provided by EDA/IC industry. The winners will be awarded at an ICCAD special session dedicated to this contest. Every year, the contest attracts more than a hundred teams, fosters productive industryacademia collaborations, and leads to hundreds of publications in top-tier conferences and journals. The 2022 CAD Contest has 166 teams from all over the world. Moreover, the problems of this year cover state-of-the-art EDA research trends such as circuit security, 3D-IC, and design space exploration from well-known EDA/IC companies. We believe the contest keeps enhancing impact and boosting EDA researches.
