FCCM 2015

The 23rd IEEE International Symposium on
Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines

May 3-5, Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada

Pdf version of the Call for Papers.

The IEEE Symposium on Field Programmable Custom Computing Machines 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. Over the past two decades, FCCM has been the place to present papers on architectures, tools, and programming models for field programmable custom computing machines as well as applications that use such systems. Papers on the traditional topics of FCCM as described below are solicited. Novel research in the general area of reconfigurable computing is also encouraged.

Architectures and Programming Models

Languages and Compilers

Run-Time Systems and Run-Time Reconfiguration


Double-Blind Reviewing

FCCM 2015 will be using a double-blind reviewing process. This means that the reviewers should not be aware of the identity of the authors and the authors will not be aware of the identity of the reviewers. The double-blind process is intended to remove, as much as possible, the potential for reviewer bias that can arise because of who is doing the research or where the research is carried out. Please reference your own prior research if it is possible to do so in the paper without revealing your identity. See the Call for Papers for more information.

Conflicts of Interest

It is important to indicate reviewers that may have a potential conflict of interest with your paper. A reviewer has a conflict of interest if it there can be the perception of favoritism regarding how a paper is reviewed. In a perfect, double-blind world, it should not be necessary to indicate potential conflicts, but there are cases where a reviewer can still figure out the authors so it is important that potential conflicts are flagged. Example conflicts include: On the submission form, authors will be asked to indicate committee members that have a conflict of interest. This is the primary way that conflicts will be identified so this is an important step for authors to help uphold the integrity of the review process. Please DO NOT indicate program committee members that do not have a conflict with your paper. You may be asked to explain why you indicated that someone has a potential conflict of interest. Please make sure that all co-authors have reviewed the list. Student authors should make sure that their supervisors have seen the list.
