Introduction

The FPT conference is the premier conference in the Asia-Pacific region on field-programmable technologies including reconfigurable computing devices and systems containing such components. Field-programmable devices promise the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware. The development and application of field-programmable technology have become important topics of research and development. Field-programmable technology is widely applied, in high-performance computing systems, embedded and low-power control instruments, mobile communications, rapid prototyping and product emulation, among other areas. The 21st edition of the conference to be held in Hong Kong SAR from 5-9th December 2022 will be in hybrid mode. As the worldwide COVID-19 pandemic situations continues to evolve, an online registration option will be available for presenters and participants who are unable to attend in person due to travel restrictions. We sincerely welcome the participants who can travel to Hong Kong to meet researchers, developers, vendors, students and enjoy more in FPT 2022.

Final paper submission deadline

The FPT conference is the premier conference in the Asia-Pacific region on field-programmable technologies including reconfigurable computing devices and systems containing such components. Field-programmable devices promise the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware. The development and application of field-programmable technology have become important topics of research and development. Field-programmable technology is widely applied, in high-performance computing systems, embedded and low-power control instruments, mobile communications, rapid prototyping and product emulation, among other areas.

Submissions are solicited on new research results and detailed tutorial expositions related to field-programmable technologies, including but not limited to:

Submission Topics

  • Tools and Design Techniques for field-programmable technology including placement, routing, synthesis, verification, debugging, runtime support, technology mapping, partitioning, parallelization, timing optimization, design and run-time environments, high-level synthesis (HLS) compilers, languages and modeling techniques, provably-correct development, intellectual property core-based design, domain-specific development, hardware/software co- design.
  • Architectures for field-programmable technology including field-programmable gate arrays, complex programmable logic devices, coarse-grained reconfigurable arrays, field- programmable interconnect, field-programmable analogue arrays, field-programmable arithmetic arrays, memory architectures, interface technologies, low-power techniques, adaptive devices, reconfigurable computing systems, high-performance reconfigurable systems, evolvable hardware and adaptive computing, fault tolerance and avoidance.
  • Device technology for field-programmable logic including programmable memories such as non- volatile, dynamic and static memory cells and arrays, interconnect devices, circuits and switches, and emerging VLSI device technologies.
  • Applications of field-programmable technology including accelerators for biomedical / scientific / neuro-morphic computing and machine learning, network processors, real-time systems, rapid prototyping, hardware emulation, digital signal processing, interactive multimedia, machine vision, computer graphics, cryptography, robotics, manufacturing systems, embedded applications, evolvable and biologically-inspired hardware.
  • Education for field-programmable technology including courses, teaching and training experience, experiment equipment, design and applications.

Guidlines

FPT 2022 is grateful to the ACM “Transactions on Reconfigurable Technology and Systems” (TRETS) for enabling us to offer a Journal Track in addition to regular and short papers directly submitted to FPT. The Journal Track is specifically intended for submissions that would benefit from the longer articles possible in TRETS (up to 32 ACM-style single-column pages), e.g., for clearer presentation of complex research, or an in-depth discussion of comprehensive results. Submissions to the Journal Track that do not take advantage of the additional space offered by TRETS, or deviate significantly from the TRETS Author Guidelines, will receive the corresponding feedback early, and can then be revised and entered into the direct FPT submission process.

Journal Track Submissions

When you decide to submit to the Journal Track, you will use the TRETS submission system to submit to the “FPT 2022 Journal Track” (which you can select after logging into your TRETS account), and then follow the ACM TRETS Author Guidelines as described above.

Note that the deadline for the FPT Journal Track is earlier than the deadline for direct FPT submissions. Your submission will then undergo the regular TRETS review process, and you will be provided with an initial set of reviewer comments and recommendations as outlined in the schedule above. If your submission is not rejected here, you will have sufficient time to revise the submission, and then submit it for a second round of reviews for inclusion in the Journal Track. You will be notified of the final decision on your TRETS Journal Track submission together with the rest of the direct FPT submissions.

Should your Journal Track submission be rejected in the TRETS initial review, or you feel you cannot fully address the revisions requested by the TRETS reviewers in the time provided, you may withdraw your submission from the Journal Track. You then have the option to submit a version of your paper, shortened according to the rules for regular/short FPT papers, to enter the regular review process for a direct FPT submission.

If you decide not to submit a revised version in time for the FPT Journal Track deadline above, or your revised version would need another round of revision, as decided by the final FPT PC discussions, you may choose to have an eventual later revision continue as a regular TRETS submission, independently of the FPT conference.
