FCCM Main Page

Location: Fayetteville, Arkansas, USA
Conference Dates: May 3 – May 6, 2020

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.

This year’s virtual conference is now open!
Registration is free!

COVID-19 Response

In response to the COVID-19 world pandemic, this year’s conference will take the form of a virtual event organized to mirror the usual physical conference.  The virtual conference is organized as a series of forums that represent 6 paper sessions (with Best Paper Award), 6 poster sessions, and 3 live workshops.

The forums will be open to attendees on the FCCM website starting May 4th.  Registration for these forums will be free and open to the entire community.  Every paper and poster session will have links to the PDFs that will appear in the proceedings along with a discussion thread.  Papers and posters will also be accompanied by a video presentation – 20 minutes for full papers, 10 minutes for short papers, and 5 minutes for posters.  The discussion forums will remain open for attendees to post new questions and comments until June 1st.  After this point, the presentations and comments will still be viewable, but new comments will be disabled.  As usual, the proceedings will be posted to IEEE Xplore after the conference has concluded. 

The technical program can be found here: /home/program/

In addition to the asynchronous technical sessions, we will also have 3 live workshops on Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, May 6th – 8th.  Xilinx will discuss “Compute Acceleration Workflow using Vitis and PYNQ” in two parts on May 7th and 8th.  Intel will present “Intel FPGA Clouds for Academic Research and Teaching” on May 6th. There will also be a research-focused workshop, “The Future of FPGA-Acceleration in Cloud and Datacenters” on May 6th.  Registration and further details on these workshops can be found on the Workshops section of the Program page: /home/program/#workshops
