FCCM 2016

The 24th IEEE International Symposium on
Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines

The IEEE Symposium on Field Programmable Custom Computing Machines (FCCM) is the original and premier forum for presenting and discussing new research related to computing that exploits the unique features and capabilities of FPGAs and other reconfigurable hardware. For 24 years, FCCM has been the place to present papers on architectures, tools, and programming models for field programmable custom computing machines and applications that use such systems. Papers are solicited on the following topics related to Field Programmable Custom Computing Machines (FCCMs):

Abstractions, Architectures, and Programming Models

Languages and Compilers

Run-Time Systems and Run-Time Reconfiguration


Paper Formats

FCCM will accept 8-page papers for oral presentation and 4-page short papers for short oral and poster presentation. All submissions should be written in the English language. An online submission link will be available on the FCCM website in late December. Papers should use the formatting template linked at the FCCM website. Submission Page

New for 2016: Later Deadline for Short Paper Submission

Authors are encouraged to submit preliminary work using the 4-page format. This category is intended for new projects and early results. These submissions will be accepted one week later than the 8-page papers.

Peer Review

FCCM uses a double blind reviewing system. Manuscripts must not identify authors or their affiliations. When referencing their own papers, authors are encouraged to do so in a way in which they do not identify themselves as authors. References that clearly identify the authors (for example, "We build on our previous work...") should be shown as "This work builds on XX [cite]" where [cite] is the real reference. Authors should also remember to mask grant numbers in the acknowledgement section. Papers that identify authors will not be considered.

Best Paper Award and a Special Section for the Best FCCM16 Papers in ACM TRETS

FCCM 2015 will continue the tradition of having a best paper award. We will also invite the authors of the best papers to extend their work to be considered for publication in a special section of ACM's Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems (TRETS) for FCCM 2015. Send in your best work for consideration!
