FCCM Ph.D. Forum 2024

Students from the US will be able to apply for a travel grant covering registration and half the travel cost.

The International Symposium On Field-Programmable Custom Computing Machines (FCCM) is going to host its second Ph.D. Forum for the graduate students working toward their Ph.D. on topics that are in the scope of FCCM. This will allow students to present and discuss their dissertation research with experts from both academia and industry who work on reconfigurable hardware, the related tools, and applications. The forum is also a great opportunity to explore future career opportunities in an informal setting (have your CV ready). The goal of the FCCM Ph.D. Forum is to provide a comprehensive venue for students to better prepare for their research while enjoying the FCCM conference and many associated workshops, tutorials, and Demo Night. The Ph.D. Forum will comprise a poster presentation, where the participating students will have the opportunity to disseminate their work to the broader FCCM community.
