- Create a document in the IEEE format summarizing their experience of using ORFS as explained above. Use the following paper as a template for your document:
- Upon completion of the document, submit a pull request on the contest platform following the guidelines provided or watch the instructional video on this topic.
- Clear analysis and explanation of the user experience: The document should demonstrate a good understanding and clarity based on your user experience of ORFS. Keep it simple and original. Remember we will be looking for creativity and your experience and ideas—there will be no additional points for complexity, generic descriptions or the use of generative language models.
- Completeness of the submission: This should include both the document and a clear, clean PR. Spurious PR’s created without a clear understanding of the proposed problem or idea will not be considered.
- Choose any aspect of your user experience with ORFS including any design, choice of application, OpenROAD tool or software that is interesting to you. Document your user experience with suggestions to improve one or more of the following: performance, productivity, software architecture or documentation. This should include both the document and a clear, clean PR. Spurious PR’s created without a clear understanding of the proposed problem or idea will not be considered.
- Participants who clear Stage 1 will proceed to compete on the design goals based on the following criteria.
- For Stage 2, while there is a choice of the three RISC-V based designs or your own design for the Outstanding category, the evaluation of results are independent of the design but will be based on both a subjective assessment of overall goal improvement, originality of ideas and final contributions to the OpenROAD community.
The following design goals are also explained on the website
