The TAU 2015 timing contest is now closed.

Among timing analysis applications, timing-driven operations are imperative for the success of optimization flows, such as placement, routing, logic synthesis, and physical synthesis. Optimization transforms change the design, and therefore have the potential to significantly affect timing information. As such, timing must be kept current to ensure slack integrity and timing closure, and updating timing information quickly and accurately is crucial for reasonable turnaround time and performance. The goals of this year's TAU contest are:
