Context overview:

Presently, optimization techniques have become crucial tools in the engineering fields (analog, digital and mixed design, Systems, RF circuits, telecommunication, multi-domains (MEMS, nano-, opto-electronics, mechatronics) and so on.

The aim of this competition is to focus on contributions of researchers, engineers and students on techniques and stratagems relevant to the wide engineering application spectrum.
The contest main topic is (but is not limited to): Optimization techniques applied to Analog, Digital, Mixed Signal and Radio-Frequency circuits.
