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
- Novel architectural abstractions
- Architectures for high performance and/or low power computing
- New spatial architectures built from different components than traditional FPGAs
- Security enhancements for reconfigurable computing
Languages and Compilers
- New languages and design frameworks for spatial or heterogeneous applications
- Tools to make run-time reconfiguration more accessible to application designers
- Compilation and CAD techniques for reconfigurable and spatial computing systems
Run-Time Systems and Run-Time Reconfiguration
- Techniques for virtualizing reconfigurable hardware
- Run-time management of reconfigurable hardware
- Fault tolerance for reconfigurable hardware
- Use of reconfigurability to build evolvable or adaptable computing systems
- Novel uses of run-time reconfiguration in application-specific systems
- Implications of run-time reconfiguration on security
- Applications built using new high level synthesis technologies
- Data center applications
- Applications that utilize reconfigurable technology for performance and efficiency
- Comparison of application implementations on different spatial hardware
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.
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.
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!
