IEEE 2005 Conference on Field-Programmable Technology (FPT' 05)
Field-programmable devices combine the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware and have become an important topic of research for universities, government, and industry worldwide.
Field-programmable technologies, including complex programmable logic devices and systems containing such components, have become an important topic of research for universities, government, and industry worldwide. Field-programmable devices combine the flexibility of software with the performance of hardware. Their regular structure facilitates rapid improvement in density, capability and speed. Field-programmable systems have a wide variety of applications, such as accelerating computations in molecular biology and medical imaging, low-power control and data processing for palm-size computers, and emulating novel electronic products before manufacture; even advanced microprocessors from Intel and ARM have benefited from field-programmable hardware emulators.
The areas of interest of this conference include the following:
* Applications of field-programmable technology: biomedical and scientific computation accelerators, 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.
* Design techniques and tools for field-programmable technology: placement, routing, synthesis, verification, technology mapping, partitioning, parallelisation, timing optimization, design and run-time environments, languages and modeling techniques, provably-correct development, intellectual property core based design, domain-specific development, hardware/software co-design.
* Architectures for field-programmable technology: field programmable gate arrays, complex programmable logic devices, field programmable interconnect, field programmable analogue arrays, field programmable arithmetic arrays, memory architectures, interface technologies, low-power techniques, adaptive devices, reconfigurable computing systems, other emerging technologies.
* Device technology for field-programmable logic: programmable memories including non-volatile, dynamic and static memory cells and arrays, interconnect devices, circuits and switches, emerging VLSI device technologies.
