FPT'20 Conference : Dec 09-11, 2020

The FPT conference is the premier conference in the Asia-Pacific region on field-programmable technologies including reconfigurable computing devices and systems containing such components. Field-programmable devices promise the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware. The development and application of field-programmable technology have become important topics of research and development. Field-programmable technology is widely applied, in high-performance computing systems, embedded and low-power control instruments, mobile communications, rapid prototyping and product emulation, among other areas.

Submissions are solicited on new research results and detailed tutorial expositions related to field-programmable technologies, including but not limited to:

  • Tools and Design Techniques for field-programmable technology including placement, routing, synthesis, verification, debugging, runtime support, technology mapping, partitioning, parallelization, timing optimization, design and run-time environments, high-level synthesis (HLS) compilers, languages and modeling techniques, provably-correct development, intellectual property core-based design, domain-specific development, hardware/software co-design.

  • Architectures for field-programmable technology including field-programmable gate arrays, complex programmable logic devices, coarse-grained reconfigurable arrays, field-programmable interconnect, field-programmable analogue arrays, field-programmable arithmetic arrays, memory architectures, interface technologies, low-power techniques, adaptive devices, reconfigurable computing systems, high-performance reconfigurable systems, evolvable hardware and adaptive computing, fault tolerance and avoidance.

  • Device technology for field-programmable logic including programmable memories such as non-volatile, dynamic and static memory cells and arrays, interconnect devices, circuits and switches, and emerging VLSI device technologies.

  • Applications of field-programmable technology including accelerators for biomedical/scientific/neuro-morphic computing and machine learning, network processors, real-time systems, rapid prototyping, hardware emulation, digital signal processing, interactive multimedia, machine vision, computer graphics, cryptography, robotics, manufacturing systems, embedded applications, evolvable and biologically-inspired hardware.

  • Education for field-programmable technology including courses, teaching and training experience, experiment equipment, design and applications.

Note that simply implementing an application using an FPGA is not considered a sufficient research contribution. Application-based papers should emphasize novel design techniques, novel use of embedded resources, or clearly articulated and measured system performance benefits.

Submission Guidelines

The program committee solicits full and short papers describing original research in field-programmable technology, including, but not limited to, the areas of interest indicated above. Papers should be submitted electronically in PDF format, following the IEEE style. Full papers can include up to 8 pages of content plus unlimited pages for references. Short papers are limited to 4 pages in total, including references.

Manuscripts must not identify authors or their affiliations for double-blind review. Papers that identify authors will NOT be considered. Please use the online system for submission. For details, please visit the FPT'20 website.

Call for workshops/tutorials

We call for workshops and tutorials which will be held in advance of the conference. For details, please visit the FPT'20 website.
