2014 ACM/SIGDA International Symposium on
Field-Programmable Gate Arrays (FPGA 2014)
February 26 - 28, 2014, Monterey, CA
The FPGA Symposium:
The ACM/SIGDA International Symposium on Field-Programmable Gate
Arrays is the premier conference for presentation of advances in all
areas related to FPGA technology. For FPGA 2014, we are soliciting
original submissions describing novel research and developments in the
following (and related) areas of interest:
-FPGA Architecture: Novel logic block architectures, combination of
FPGA fabric and system blocks (DSP, processors, memories, etc.),
design of routing fabric, I/O interfaces, new commercial architectures
and architectural features.
-FPGA Circuit Design: Novel FPGA circuits and circuit-level
techniques, impact of process and design technologies, methods for
analyzing and improving issues with soft-errors, leakage, static and
dynamic power, clocking, power grid, yield, manufacturability,
reliability, test; studies on future device technologies
(e.g. nano-scale, 3D gate) for FPGAs.
-CAD for FPGAs: Placement, routing, re-timing, logic optimization,
technology mapping, system-level partitioning, logic generators,
testing and verification, CAD for FPGA-based accelerators, CAD for
incremental FPGA design and on-line design mapping and optimization,
CAD for modeling, analysis and optimization of timing and power.
-High-Level Abstractions and Tools for FPGAs: General-purpose and
domain-specific models, languages, tools, and techniques to facilitate
the design, development, debugging, verification, and deployment of
large-scale and high-performance FPGA-based applications and systems,
e.g. high level synthesis, DSP, compute acceleration, networking or
embedded system tools and methodologies.
-FPGA-based and FPGA-like computing engines: Compiled accelerators,
reconfigurable computing, adaptive computing devices, systems and
-Applications and Design Studies: Implementation of novel designs on
FPGAs to achieve high performance, low power, or high reliability,
making use of the unique flexibility provided by FPGA
architectures. Application-domain studies to analyze or improve FPGA
architectures and implementations for networking, DSP, embedded,
audio/video, automotive, imaging and other relevant
areas. Optimization of FPGA-based cores (e.g. arithmetic, DSP,
security, embedded processors, memory interfaces, or other functions).
-Panel Outlines: Topic proposals for the traditional Evening Panel
Session at FPGA.
Authors are invited to submit an English language PDF of their paper
by September 20, 2013. Submitted papers will be considered for
acceptance as a full paper (10 pages maximum), as a short paper
(4 pages), or as a poster.
The FPGA Symposium uses a double-blind reviewing system. Manuscripts
must not identify authors or their affiliations. Self-references can
either (1) be shown as "Removed for blind review" or (2) be referenced
in the 3rd person, in the same way you would reference work by another
group. Papers that identify authors will not be considered. Exceptions
may be made for papers presenting new FPGA-related community
infrastructure if the ability of reviewers to access that
infrastructure is key to evaluating the paper. Please contact the
Program Chair before submitting if you feel that it is not possible to
avoid identifying the paper authors.
Papers should be submitted on-line via the conference website.
All papers should use the ACM formatting templates available at:
Notification of acceptance will be sent by late November. The authors
of accepted papers will be required to submit the final camera-ready
copy by mid December. A proceedings of the accepted papers will be
published by ACM and included in the Annual ACM/SIGDA CD-ROM
Submission Deadline: September 20, 2013
Author Notification: End of November, 2013
Conference: February 26-28, 2014
